Estonia overcome the elements in Andorra

Andorra 0-2 Estonia
The visitors prevailed in snowy conditions courtesy of second-half strikes from Maksim Lipin and Aleksandr Kulinitš.

Estonia moved up a position into third as they reached the halfway stage of their UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 2 campaign with victory over Andorra at a snowy Estadi Comunal.

The section's bottom team comfortably resisted the advances of their visitors in temperatures of -5C until Maksim Lipin struck six minutes after the restart. A long-range effort from Aleksandr Kulinitš sealed Estonia's second win and somewhat made amends for the 1-1 draw Martin Reim's side could only manage on home soil against the minnows in June.

Estonia will climb to within two points of Russia if they defeat their second-placed opponents in Krasnodar on Tuesday, when leaders Denmark take on Andorra.
