The goals arrived late on to deny the squad what would have been a deserved draw at least in Tallinn against the hosts' U23 side.

The first of those late goals came from a familiar name.

Markus Poom, son of former Derby County and Sunderland keeper Mart, glanced a header into the top corner on 88 minutes.

And Estonia killed the game off in stoppage time thanks to a low finish from Kaarel Usta.
