Estonian national football team head coach Magnus Pehrsson has named the 23 players he will take to Lithuania for the Euro 2016 qualifier on October 9, and for the game against England three days later in Tallinn.

Estonia won its first game of the qualifying tournament against Slovenia, and is gunning for at least a third place, which would mean play-off games in the enlarged competition. Estonia finished second in its group four years ago, which would earn an automatic first ever qualifying sport for the tournament, as 24, not 16 teams qualify this time around. As England and Switzerland are seen as the heavy favorites, Estonia's best chance is against Slovenia and Lithuania.

The team for the following two matches are (including birth date, club team, games played for the national team/goals scored):
