October 12, 2011

Raimondas Zutautas has resigned as coach of Lithuania, the country's football federation have confirmed.

Lithuania lost 4-1 to the Czech Republic on Tuesday night, a result which meant they took just five points from their eight Group I games and also saw their opponents reach the play-offs ahead of Scotland.

Zutautas told Lithuanian media: ''We did not win as many points as we anticipated. I would like to thank the guys for their effort and the spectators who supported us at a difficult time.

''Since the targets were not met, I have decided to leave my post. I wish the next coach luck.'
