Euro 2012: Estonia v Cyprus

ESTONIA secured their place in the next round of the 2012 European Championship when they beat Cyprus 34-28 at Crystal Palace national Sports Centre in London on Saturday afternoon.

Cyprus were the only team who could deny Estonia their place in the next round of the competition, but the Estonians led for much of the game and proved too potent in attack.

Once again their top-scorer was Mait Patrail who bagged nine goals, but left-back Janar Magi was not far behind with seven goals.

Cyprus left-back Giorgios Papakyprianou scored 11 goals, but it was not enough to catch Estonia who were taller, stronger and more inventive in attack.

18-13 ahead at half time, Estonia built on that lead to win by six. Every time Cyprus pulled back the lead, Estonia responded with ease.
