Victory caps odd month for national team ({{commentsTotal}})

The Estonian football team won two and drew one game in the last few weeks, with zero goals scored against them in the month of November, but the failure to beat San Marino will linger on.

On Tuesday a lone Henri Anier goal was enough to see off Jordan, ranked 14 places above Estonia.

Frank Liivak, Estonia's biggest young talent, broke through on the left, sending a powerful pass to the back post, where Anier was faced with an empty goal and did not make a mistake. Watch the 15th-minute goal here.

The game was very open with both sides preferring to attack, and both sides had plenty of chances to increase the score. Despite the sub-zero temperatures, more than 1,300 turned up for the national team's last home game of the year.

Head coach Magnus Pehrsson has now been in charge of 13 games, winning five, drawing three and losing five.

Estonia managed only a 0-0 draw at San Marino in Euro 2016 pool play last week, allowing San Marino to break a 61-game streak of losses, and seriously damaging Estonia's chances of qualifying
