A late goal by Als Purje gives Estonia a shock 1-0 win against Slovenia in this evening's Euro 2016 Group E qualifier at the A. Le Coq Arena.

Estonia have registered a shock 1-0 win against Slovenia in this evening's Euro 2016 Group E qualifier at the A. Le Coq Arena.

The home nation, ranked 93rd in the world, were second best for most of the game against the 2010 World Cup competitors, but Ats Purje's late goal proved the crucial difference between the two sides.

The first concrete effort of the night fell to the Baltic state, as Ragnar Klavan's header was blocked from close range.

From then on, however, it was mostly one way traffic, Slovenia coming forward time and time again, but being repeatedly thwarted by Estonian goalkeeper Sergei Pareiko and his defence.

Towards the latter stages of the game, the Baltic nation found themselves working their way back into the game, as Martin Vunk and Joel Lindpere gave a sign of things to come.

Estonia then struck the winning goal with just four minutes to play, as Valter Birsa's free kick fell to Purje, who smashed the ball in from close range.
