Northern Ireland v Cyprus: UEFA Nations League - League Path Group 2
San Marino and Cyprus square off in a friendly on Tuesday

San Marino and Cyprus return to action on Tuesday when they square off in a friendly at the San Marino Stadium. This will be the first meeting between the two nations since September 2019, when Temur Ketsbaia’s side secured a 4-0 victory in the European Championship qualifiers.

San Marino were left empty-handed yet again as they suffered a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Slovakia in a friendly on Wednesday.

In a one-sided affair at Wiener Neustadt Arena, Tomás Rigo, Tomás Suslov, Lukás Haraslín and David Strelec all found the back of the net to inspire the Falcons to a comfortable victory.

With their last win dating back to 2004, San Marino are currently the lowest-ranked side in the latest FIFA world rankings (210).

Cyprus, on the other hand, were on the receiving end of a 3-1 loss against Moldova in a friendly at the Zimbru Stadium on Saturday.

Ketsbaia’s men have now failed to win 12 of their last 13 matches across all competitions, losing 10 and claiming two draws since the start of 2023.

However, Cyprus will be backing themselves to return to winning ways on Tuesday as they take on an opposing side who have lost each of their six meetings since November 1998.
