Estonia 1 Northern Ireland 2: Magennis' late strikes earn dramatic win

Sat 08 June 2019 | 17:55

Northern Ireland were heading for defeat against Estonia until Josh Magennis came off the bench to score twice in their 2-1 win in Tallinn.

Substitute Josh Magennis scored two late goals to snatch Northern Ireland a dramatic 2-1 comeback win at Estonia in Saturday's Euro 2020 qualifier.

Estonia skipper Konstantin Vassiljev's free-kick 25 minutes in appeared to have done enough for the hosts to claim all three points, but Magennis struck twice from the bench in the space of three minutes.

The late turnaround in Tallinn keeps Northern Ireland's 100 per cent start to qualifying alive and ends their winless away run, which spanned seven matches heading into this contest.

Michael O'Neill's side are now six points clear at the top of Group C, but all of the four sides below them still have games in hand.
