Estonia move into pole position

Estonia 1-1 Republic of Ireland

Estonia lead the way in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 2 despite being held to a draw by the Republic of Ireland in Rakvere.

Woodwork woe
The hosts top their section after picking up a point but looked on course to take all three having gone in front through Kaimar Saag after just four minutes. However, Ireland were level just seven minutes in with Cillian Sheridan beating Stanislav Pedõk with a powerful effort from the edge of the area. Sheridan and Owen Garvan both hit the crossbar later on, while Estonia were also profligate, as chances for Saag and Sergei Mošnikov went begging. Turkey's surprise defeat in Georgia allowed Estonia to go top of Group 2, while Ireland are fifth having picked up a solitary point from their opening two fixtures.
