Estonia beats Northern Ireland 4-1 at home

Estonia beats Northern Ireland 4-1 at home

Estonia took advantage of defensive errors to claim a 4-1 home win over Northern Ireland on Tuesday and boost its chances of qualifying for Euro 2012.
The result all but extinguished Northern Ireland's hopes of progressing from Group C to next year's finals in Poland and Ukraine.
Martin Vunk opened the scoring for Estonia in the 28th minute with a low shot and Tarmo Kink doubled the advantage four minutes later when Northern Ireland goalkeeper Lee Camp made a mess of dealing with his long-range effort.
Raio Piiroja headed an own goal in the 39th minute to give Northern Ireland hope, but Sergei Zenjov scored Estonia's third after another defensive error in the 60th and Kaimar Saag added a late fourth.
