At the start of the game, Dundalk was the favorite to qualify when he faced Faroe side Kí and showed why with Sean Murray opening the scoring in the 33rd minute

Daniel Cleary doubled his lead just after half-time as Dundalk looked set to enter the group stage

But an incredible effort on the part of Ole Erik Midskogen made things nervous for Dundalk as their lead was reduced to one
