Euro 2020 qualifiers: Estonia 1-2 Northern Ireland

Josh Magennis

Josh Magennis scored a late double to ensure Northern Ireland made it three wins from three in their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.

The hosts led at the break through captain Konstantin Vassiljev's superb low free-kick.

But after a spell of heavy pressure, Conor Washington's shot deflected in off Magennis' chest to equalise.

The Bolton striker scored the winner three minutes later when he turned home Jamal Jones's low cross.
