thumbnail Hello,

Edgaras Jankauskas believes Spain will have problems with the pitch in Lithuania for their Group I Euro 2012 qualifier.

Lithuania forward Edgaras Jankauskas has admitted that his national side's minimal chances of earning points against Spain in their Euro 2012 qualifier will be slightly helped by the state of the pitch.

Lithuania will host the world champions at the S. Darius and S. Girenas stadium, which has not been particularly well received by the Spanish players who have had a glimpse at the playing surface in the country's second largest city, Kaunas.

"Of course our chances in the match against Spain are not very large. But I hope the state of the field will benefit us. The Spaniards will find a lot of holes and bald patches on the surface which will complicate their task," the Voronezh striker told Marca.

"There are teams that like to build their play and there are others that like to disrupt their opposition. We are stronger in the second element," said the former Porto man.

Lithuania currently sit in 4th place in Group I but will be buoyed by their 2-0 victory over Poland four days ago.
