“It is definitely a great recognition of Estonian football and a gift to Estonian football fans.

The match in Tallinn will take place on Aug. 14, 2018 at Lilleküla Arena, also known as the A. Le Coq Arena.

The match will take place during Estonia’s jubilee year. “I am especially glad that we were able to make a great contribution to the celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia,” Pohlak added.
