Euro 2016 qualification hopes take a blow as Slovenia gets revenge in rematch ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonian national football team's chances of making it to the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying play-offs are starting to fade.

Tuesday's away rematch with Slovenia in Maribor ended with the home side's win after Robert Berić scored on 63rd minute and Estonia failed to retaliate, putting Slovenians two points ahead of Estonia in the league table.

With Estonia only having matches against England and Switzerland left, it is unlikely to increase its total score of 10 points.

England has already secured a place in the final tournament with 24 points and Switzerland is holding on to second qualifier position with 15. Follow Slovenia (12), Estonia (10), Lithuania (9) and San Marino (1).
