How would the Estonian national football team fare against the 32 nations competing for this summer's World Cup? ERR News crunches the numbers.

The final count is nothing to be proud of, with Estonia winning just four matches of 60, and drawing seven times. Estonia has scored 27 goals against the teams competing in Brazil, shipping 159.

Yet statistically Estonia is improving, with all the positive results (that includes draws) except for two draws in 1998 and 1999, coming this century.
