HELSINKI/AMSTERDAM/ANDORRA, Oct 12 (SW) - The Czech Republic have secured their place in the World Cup 2006 European play-offs, following a 0-3 win in Finland. Romania now move down to the third position and are eliminated.

Finland - Czech Republic 0-3

After only six minutes, the Czechs took the lead with a goal from Tomas Jun. During the rest of the first half, Karel Brückner's men could not score a second, but Tomas Rosicky finally doubled the lead in the 51st minute.

A goal from Marek Heinz in the 58th minute set the score to 0-3. As this was also the final score, the Czechs moved into second place in Group 1, with 27 points, two more than Romania.

Netherlands - Macedonia 0-0

For the second time in this qualifying campaign, the Netherlands were held to a draw by Macedonia. This time, the Dutch were unable to score despite having been dominant throughout the entire match.

The best chance was for Opdam in the second half. The AZ player had a free kick surprisingly hitting the crossbar.

Andorra - Armenia 0-3

Armenia avoided the shame of ending in seventh and last position, by beating Andorra 0-3 on the final matchday.

In Andorra la Vella, the visitors took the lead thanks to an own goal from Oscar Sonejee in the 39th minute. Aram Hakobian was responsible for the two remaining goals, in the 52nd and 62nd minutes. Andorra spent the entire second half with just ten players following Lima's red card in the 43rd minute.
