Finland cruise to easy win

Kasper Hamalainen scored twice as Finland cruised to a 4-1 Euro 2012 qualifying

Group E victory over Moldova.

The Djurgarden midfielder put the hosts two goals to the good in a one-sided

first half and went close to a hat-trick in the second period.

Mikael Forssell's penalty and Igor Armas' own goal put the result beyond doubt

long before Serghei Alexeev's late consolation.

Moldova looked to catch their hosts cold but Gheorghe Ovseanicov's first-minute

header was saved by Lukas Hradecky - and that was the extent of their attacking

threat in the first half.

Perparim Hetemaj's 30-yard effort drew a routine save from Nicolae Calancea but

the opening goal arrived in the 11th minute when Roman Eremenko's corner was

kept alive by Forssell and Hamalainen headed home from six yards.

Forssell's 20-yard drive crashed back off the post as Finland sought to quickly

build on their lead.

Hetemaj and Forssell both threatened in quick succession, the midfielder's

30-yard drive held by Calancea before the former Chelsea striker shot wide from

the left of the penalty area.

But Hamalainen netted the second shortly before half-time, finishing from the

edge of the box after being teed up by Daniel Sjolund.

The third goal came early in the second half, with Anatolie Doros' foul on Kari

Arkivuo allowing Forssell to drill home a 52nd-minute penalty. Doros was booked

for the foul.

Hamalainen was only denied his treble by the upright before a rare Moldovan

foray saw Ovseanicov head Denis Zmeu's cross wide.

The fourth goal came with 20 minutes remaining when, from another corner,

Eremenko's delivery was headed into his own net by Armas.

Substitute Timo Furuholm almost made an immediate impact after replacing

Hamalainen, but Calancea saved well.

Moldova salvaged a measure of pride as Alexeev converted Anatolie Cheptene's

through-ball, but it was to little avail and Furuholm, Eremenko and Teemu Pukki

threatened further embarrassment.
