Ireland opened the scoring after 16mins through Alan Judge and went further ahead 7 mins before the break through an Eddie Nolan penalty.

Anthony Stokes brought his goal tally for the first phase to four when he netted in 55 and 58 mins. Ireland completed their scoring on the hour when Alan Judge claimed his second goal of the game.

In the other game in the Group hosts Germany beat Iceland 1-0 to clinch top place in the Group.

Ireland qualify in second place for the 2nd Qualifying Phase which will be played next Spring in a Group which will also include England.

Ireland’s Manager, Sean McCaffrey expressed himself extremely satisfied with the performance and the result. "The boys played extremely well today and in the game against Germany on Saturday. They were exceptional both on and off the pitch and this week will be of enormous benefit to their overall development," said a delighted McCaffrey.

He added, "These are a very talented squad of young players and they played brilliantly throughout the tournament. We should have beaten Germany who are one of Europe's finest sides and today their class showed against Lithuania".
