Georgia take points from Albania

Albania 0-1 Georgia The visitors triumph in Elbasan to keep alive their hopes of a play-off place.

Georgia kept alive their hopes of qualifying for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship as they secured victory in Albania.

Positions remain
The two teams were level on points at kick-off, with Georgia holding fifth place in the seven-team group courtesy of a 2-1 home win against Albania in September. And their repeat performance today, courtesy of a late goal from 16-year-old substitute Beka Gotsiridze, keeps them within sight of the contenders in Group 2.

Denmark trip
A tough trip to leaders Denmark awaits Albania on Tuesday, while Georgia's next fixture is on 16 August against bottom team Kazakhstan.
