Estonia Vs. Ireland Live, Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs: Ireland Lead 10-Man Estonia 3-0

For a significant percentage of the second half between Estonia and Ireland, it was difficult to discern which team had just ten men on the pitch. Andrei Stepanov was sent off on a second yellow card before halftime, but it was Ireland that looked to be chasing the match, despite being a goal up.

That all changed in the 69th minute with the goal by Jonathan Walters, standing in for Kevin Doyle up front. Robbie Keane sent in a shot, but Estonia Enar Jaager was able to push it away. Unfortunately for the home side, it fell once again to Keane, who neatly chipped it across the goal, where Walters was able to easily head it down and in. In fact, it looked eerily similar to Keith Andrews's goal in the first half.

Just three minutes later, Keane himself put it away, which must surely put the match out of reach for Estonia. And with three away goals, Ireland have almost certainly booked their place in Euro 2012.
