The Estonian men's national football team remains winless over their past nine matches, as they suffered a one-nil defeat against Georgia in Tallinn on Saturday, in the restarted UEFA Nations League.
Georgia's only goal of the match came in the 32nd minute, when Hvitš Kvaratskhelia whipped the ball in from the right wing, with Nika Katšarava able to head the ball in, rising over Estonian center-back Joonas Tamm in the process.
Georgia, the sharper side for the 90 minutes, took ten shots, of which two were on target. Estonia mustered up a total of two shots in the entire match, holding 39 percent possession throughout the game with their League C opponent.
The loss to Georgia marks the ninth consecutive match for Estonia without a victory; the last win for the national team came in March of 2019, when they took care of Gibraltar 1:0.
On September 8, the Estonian team will go on the road for a clash with Armenia, after which they will host North Macedonia, in October.
Karel Voolaid, national team manager, said post-match that: "We have to be better with the ball, be more confident; our attack has to be smoother and longer, so we won't go looking for the opportunity after just one or two passes."
The match against Armenia on Tuesday, September 8, will be broadcast on ETV2 at 6.50 p.m., Estonian time.
