Wales clicked, with Daniel James nipping inside and spreading the ball right to Roberts, who wrapped his left foot around the ball and sent a delicious shot curling towards the far corner.

Sergei Zenjov – on the scoresheet as Estonia recorded their first competitive win in three years on Friday against Belarus – intercepted the pass and sent a shot goalwards. Ward threw himself at it to make a block but the ball was looping in, only for the Wales defender Joe Rodon to bail out his teammate by intervening heroically on the goalline. Wales had another let-off five minutes after the interval. Markus Poom, son of the former Derby and Sunderland goalkeeper Mart, who is on the Estonia coaching staff, sent a teasing free-kick spinning into the box and Erik Sorga, who easily evaded the attention of Joe Allen, glanced a header on to the roof of Ward’s goal.

Wales suffered another scare on 63 minutes, when the centre-backs Rodon and Mepham both challenged for the same ball, allowing Mattias Kait to find a route through the middle of the Wales defence. The Estonia midfielder charged forward and wriggled clear of Ethan Ampadu but his shot, when one on one with Ward, lacked conviction. Wales struggled to put Estonia to the sword and, worse still, Moore, who was forced off with an eye problem, will miss their next game – their penultimate qualifier of the campaign against Belarus – through suspension after picking up another harsh booking. No player has scored more goals for Wales than Moore since his debut two years ago and he will be a big miss. Before he was replaced Moore was caught in the face by a flailing arm from Marten Kuusk, which led to Wales withdrawing the Cardiff striker. Estonia would not go quietly and a creaking Wales back line endured a nervy finish, with Ward sprawling to his left to deny Sinyavskiy and help eke out a win that keeps up the chase. Topics
