Cyprus came very close to taking the lead after five minutes. They carved open the Scotland defence before a shot from Efrem looked to have crossed the line, after the ball came back off the underside of the bar. Five minutes later Christie collected the ball on the right wing, before running to the edge of the box and curling a great shot into the top corner to give Scotland the lead. At the start of the second half, a free kick into the box by Cyprus was headed away by Declan Gallagher for Efrem to score a great volley past Marshall. Five minutes later, Greg taylor played a low cross into the box for John McGinn to steer the ball past the keeper and give Scotland a 2-1 victory.
