Cyprus held by Iceland

NICOSIA - Cyprus wasted the chance to post their first victory in Euro 2012 qualifying Group H when they missed a penalty in a 0-0 draw with Iceland.

Chryssis Michail squandered the 21st minute spot-kick, his effort saved by Iceland keeper Stefan Magnusson.

Cyprus were also denied a winner late on when a long-range effort by Constantinos Makridis struck the post.

Iceland, who are also without a win in the group, spent most of the game defending but they did have one good chance to score when Birkir Saevarsson wasted a decent chance before half-time.
