Estonia 0-2 Russia: Kerzhakov double

TALLINN, March 24 (Reuters) - Striker Alexander Kerzhakov scored two second-half goals to give Russia a 2-0 away win over Estonia that put them in a strong position in Euro 2008 qualifying Group E on Saturday.

Playmaker Andrei Arshavin laid on both goals for Kerzhakov,

who beat goalkeeper Mart Poom with a dipping shot in the 66th

minute and netted a left wing cross in the 78th.

The home team were fired up for the match, for historical

reasons as well as trying to avenge a 2-0 defeat earlier in the

campaign, and midfielders Sergei Terehhov and Ragnar Klavan were

close to scoring early on.

But from the middle of the first half the home team's

attacks dwindled and they were unable to hold back Arshavin who

cut through Estonia's defence at will creating chances.

'Our game fell apart in the second half. We got tired

first,' Poom told Estonia's national broadcaster ETV.

Russia went one point ahead of Croatia at the top of the

group before the Croatians' home game against Macedonia later on

Saturday.
