Greece comfortably move top

Greece moved to the top of Group F with an easy victory over Malta in their Euro 2012 qualifier.

First-half goals from Ioannis Fetfatzidis and Kyriakos Papadopoulos set them on their way, and although Michael Mifsud got one back for Malta early in the second half, Fetfatzidis soon got his second to restore the two-goal advantage and lift Greece above Croatia and Israel.

Greece pressed from the start, with Sotiris Ninis going close inside the opening minute with a shot from the edge of the area.

Evangelos Moras then missed from close range but Greece were ahead only eight minutes in when Vassilis Torosidis teed up Fetfatzidis to fire home.

Fetfatzidis went close again moments later, but Andrew Hogg pushed his shot clear.

At the other end, John Hutchinson's shot went over as Malta made their first attack in the 21st minute.

Greece then doubled their lead in the 25th minute, with Giorgos Karagounis' cross finding the head of Papadopoulos for an easy finish.

The hosts continued to press, with Nikos Spyropoulos firing wide before Torosidis headed just over.

Hogg then had to punch clear a dangerous free-kick from Ninis.

Malta pushed forward again before the break, but Andre Schembri's shot went over.

However, they got themselves back in the match eight minutes into the second half as Shaun Bajada's cross found Mifsud who turned the ball in.

That prompted Malta's best spell of the match as Andrew Cohen curled a shot onto the post before Mifsud's powerful shot brought a save from Dimitrios Konstantopoulos.

However, Greece responded with a third goal as Dimitris Salpingidis crossed for Fetfatzidis to finish with a left-footed shot.

Moras then headed over before Alexandros Tzorvas shot into the wall from a free-kick.

Mifsud blazed over for Malta while Greece had the last chance, with Hutchinson blocking Kostas Katsouranis' shot.
