EXCLUSIVE: Estonian Football Team Coach Pehrsson Weighs In Ahead of England Battle
The head of the Estonian national football team, Magnus Pehrsson, sat down with ERR News on Sunday to talk about football, the upcoming England match and life in Estonia from a Swede's perspective.
Pehrsson replaced Tarmo Rüütli at the end of last year, and will have a tough task to do better than Rüütli, who came just two games from qualifying for a major tournament in Euro 2012 qualifying, making it further than either Finland or Lithuania ever had.
Pehrsson has experimented with a great number of players in friendly matches during his first months in charge, and picked up the best possible result in the first qualifying game against Estonia's most dangerous rival for the third spot in the group, beating Slovenia 1-0.
Lithuania awaits on Thursday, followed by England, which Estonia will host in Tallinn on Sunday.
