Estonia to face Georgia, St. Kitts and Nevis in November friendlies ({{commentsTotal}})

After a better-than-average EURO 2016 qualifying tournament ended on Monday, the Estonian national football team (ranked 87th in the world) will face three friendlies in Tallinn in mid-November.

First up will be Georgia (110th) on November 11, followed by a yet to be announced opponent on November 14.

Estonia will then face the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis (112th), with a population of 50,000, on November 17.

Estonia finished the qualifying tournament in fourth place, behind England, Switzerland and Slovenia, but ahead of Lithuania and San Marino. Estonia only allowed two against goals at home, seven in away games, but only managed to score four times in 10 matches, and will be hoping to score more in the upcoming friendly matches.
