Kick Off: 19:00 Local (18:00 BST) Estonia won the battle of the bottom two sides in Group D after edging past Andorra thanks to a second-half goal from Andres Oper. The veteran striker headed home the only goal in the 57th minute after half-time substitute Martin Vunk's shot had struck the crossbar as Estonia claimed the spoils in a match they largely dominated in terms of chances. Neither country had picked up a point or even scored a goal from their opening three World Cup qualifiers, but Estonia, ranked 132 places above Andorra, would have been hopeful of getting off the mark.
