A FAF member, Sergey Janjoyan said in a Facebook post that the Embassy dragged the process for no apparent reason and announced on Friday, September 7 that all those who had applied for visas have been rejected.

In the first half of the match, midfielder Marcos Pizzelli shot from outside the box to the top left corner of Liechtenstsein's net after Aras Özbiliz, an Armenian winger, assisted.

Minutes later, Liechtenstein's Sandro Wolfinger shot from the left side of the six yard box to the bottom left corner for an equalizer.
