Estonia to Take on Romania in Last World Cup Qualifier ({{commentsTotal}})


The Estonian national football team is in Romania for the last match of Europe's 2014 World Cup qualifying tournament.

The match may end up looking one-sided as Romania need a win to advance to the next phase, while Estonia have nothing to play for, having already squandered any hopes of qualifying.

Estonia is expected to field a mixed team of experienced players such as Sergei Pareiko, Konstantin Vassiljev and Ragnar Klavan, surrounded by the younger generation of Mikk Reintam and Taijo Teniste in defense, and Henrik Ojamaa and Henri Anier in attack.

To recap the results of Estonia's previous nine games in the tournament:

September 7, 2012 Estonia - Romania (0-2)
September 11, 2012 Turkey - Estonia (3-0)
October 12, 2012, Estonia - Hungary (0-1)
October 16, 2012, Andorra - Estonia (0-1), goal by Andres Oper
March 22, 2013, Netherlands - Estonia (3-0)
March 26, 2013, Estonia - Andorra (2-0), goals by Henri Anier and Joel Lindpere
September 6, 2013, Estonia - Netherlands (2-2), goals by Konstantin Vassiljev
September 10, 2013, Hugary - Estonia (5-1), goal by Tarmo Kink
October 11, 2013 Estonia - Turkey (0-2)

Tonight's game will be shown on ETV2, with a 21:00 (Estonian time) kick-off.
