Latvia savour Valga victory

Estonia 1-3 Latvia Latvia may be all but mathematically out of, but show spirit in Estonia to take their Group 3 points tally into double figures.

Latvia may be all but mathematically out of the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, but they showed spirit to win in Estonia and take their Group 3 points tally into double figures.

Ivanovs clincher
Only just before the hour mark did Aleksejs Visnakovs break the deadlock in Estonia, with Kristaps Blanks adding a second not long after. Jarmo Ahjupera pulled one back five minutes from time but Deniss Ivanovs made it 3-1 before the end.

Tuesday test
Victory at home to Slovakia on Tuesday would take Latvia up to third place, though if Russia avoid defeat against already-through Portugal, Juris Ševljakovs's team will be unable to deny the Russians the other play-off place. Estonia have two chances left to gain a first win in the pool, in Slovakia on 7 October and against Luxembourg four days later.
