Liam Donnelly's injury-time penalty gave Northern Ireland U21s a dramatic 2-1 victory over Estonia in their opening Euro 2019 qualifier in Tallinn.

Dale Gorman and Paul Smyth had shots blocked before Rauno Sappinen put the hosts in front on 50 minutes.

Sheffield United teenager David Parkhouse levelled with a composed back-post finish on his debut.

NI captain Donnelly slotted home the spot-kick in the fourth minute of added time after a foul on Parkhouse.

It was the perfect start to the campaign as U21 clinched a deserved Group Two success in the first game in charge for manager Ian Baraclough.

Northern Ireland's Under-21s have never progressed to a European Championship finals and finished last in their previous qualifying group after picking up only two points from 10 matches.

Baraclough's Under-21 side will also face Albania, Iceland, Slovakia and Spain in their group.
