Romania defeated Estonia in their first 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier courtesy of second-half goals from Gabriel Torje and Ciprian Marica.

Though the visitors dominated after the break, Estonia made things difficult in the first 45 minutes at the Lilleküla Stadium, keeping chances to a minimum. However, Romania could not be shackled after the interval, with Torje turning in a cross on 55 minutes and Marica sealing the Group D points with a quarter of an hour remaining.
