Werder forward Romano Schmid was on target for his country during Tuesday night’s EURO qualifier. The 21-year-old scored seven minutes into the game against Estonia – his first goal for the Austira U21s, who went on to win 2-0 and go top of the group.  ​​​​​​

Ilia Gruev was also on the winning side as Bulgaira and Albania’s U21 outfits met in a friendly. The Werder man scored the 11th-minute opener of a 4-0 win for the Bulgarians. 

Jiri Pavlenka was an unused substitute in Czech Republic’s 3-1 friendly win over Albania.
