MACEDONIA - ESTONIA 1-1
And again no victory for Macedonia. The game against Estonia played in the Gradski stadium in Skopje ended in a dissapointing 1-1, with giving Estonia and Macedonia one point each.
The guests started the match with a slight initiative and had small pressure in the first few minutes on the match. Huge space was made in the Macedonian defense and the Estonian defender Piiroja had no problem scoring from close range in the 17th minute. This was only the 3rd goal for Estonia in the EURO qualifications. The other 2 goals were scored against Andorra.
In the 30th minute Tasevski delivered a corner and Maznov was on the right place to head the ball towards Estonian goal. The Estonian defender Piiroja tried to block the shot but it ended in the Estonian net.
In the second half Macedonia made big effort to score a winning goal. Stojkov and Maznov had shots on the goal but neither of them ended in the goal. Macedonia had 12 shots on goal but only 4 of them ended on target and only 1 ended in the net. Not just that Macedonia failed to win, but in the last minutes Estonia had the chance to win when in they hit the bar in the 86th minute.
MD: We can say now that this was another hopeless qualifying, will it be any better in the upcoming years?
