Russia put themsevles on the brink of qualifying for Euro 2016 with a 2-1 victory over Moldova thanks to goals from Sergey Ignashevich and Artem Dzyuba.

Russia have edged a step closer to securing their place at Euro 2016 courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Moldova in their qualifying clash this evening.

The visitors were the first to threaten when Sergey Ignashevich brought the ball forward from the back and was allowed to raid to the edge of the box, but he sent his effort over the bar.

Aleksandr Kokorin should have given Russia the lead in the 28th minute when he latched on to a cross from the right, but he failed to guide his header from close range into the back of the net.

Leonid Slutsky's men pressed forward again through Oleg Shatov, but he failed to connect properly with his effort from inside the box, which allowed Vitali Bordiyan to clear the danger.

In the second half, Russia continued to threaten the Moldova goal as Pavel Mamaev latched on to a loose ball on the edge of the box, but his right-footed drive sailed wide of the post.

The visitors took the lead in the 58th minute as Dmitry Kombarov lifted a free kick into the box, and following a failed clearance Ignashevich powered the ball past Alexei Koselev.

Kombarov nearly doubled his side's advantage minutes later when he was allowed to shoot from distance, but Koselev made a solid stop to deny him.

Russia secured their win in the 79th minute when Ignashevich guided the ball into the path of Artem Dzyuba at the back post, who slotted home from one yard.

Eugeniu Cebotaru got a goal back for Moldova late in the game, but the visitors held out for the three points to edge closer towards a place in Euro 2016.
