Nekhaychik edges Belarus through

Belarus 1-0 Azerbaijan
FC BATE Borisov striker Pavel Nekhaychik scored the winner on his home ground as Belarus secured a play-off berth.

Pavel Nekhaychik struck a second-half winner as Belarus booked their spot in Friday's UEFA European Under-21 Championship play-off draw as one of the four best runners-up.

The evenly-contested Group 10 fixture seemed to be drifting towards a draw until FC BATE Borisov's Nekhaychik, on his home ground, turned in a deep cross from captain Stanislav Dragun. At that point, with Scotland drawing with Austria, Georgi Kondratiev's team were on course to progress as winners of the section. However, a late goal in Aberdeen helped Scotland to a 2-1 win which lifted them above Belarus on head-to-head record. Nevertheless, Belarus will enter Friday's draw for a two-legged tie in October.
