Movsisyan scores in 3rd straight for Armenia

Former Real Salt Lake forward Yura Movsisyan scored in his third consecutive European Championship qualifier, helping Armenia beat Andorra 4-0 Tuesday.

The 23-year-old had a green card and was potentially eligible to play for the United States but joined Armenia's national team for an August exhibition against Iran.

He volleyed in Sargis Hovsepyan's cross from the right in the 33rd minute, following goals in qualifiers at Macedonia on Sept. 7 and against Slovakia last Friday.

Movsisyan has three goals in five international appearances. After playing for the Kansas City Wizards (2006-07) and Real Salt Lake (2007-09), he joined Denmark's Randers this year.

Gevorg Ghazaryan (fourth minute), Henrik Mkhitaryan (16th), and Marcos Pizzellia also scored for Armenia.
