The Estonian men's national football squad is due to head out to Cyprus on Saturday for a training camp in Cyprus. Frank Liivak's return is one of several changes made to head coach Thomas Häberli's 25-man squad ahead of the trip.

Former Sligo Rovers star Frank Liivak, FCI Levadia forward Nikita Vassiljev and Tallinna Kalev defender Georg Pank will all now join up with the squad. Meanwhile Märten Kuusk (Ujpest FC), Markus Poom (Shamrock Rovers) and Rauno Alliku (Flora Tallinn), who were originally named in the squad are set to miss out for various reasons.

The group traveling to Cyprus includes ten potential national team debutants. However, several key players from non-Estonian clubs are also missing as the camp takes place outside the official FIFA international playing window.

Erko Jonne Tõugjas (Flora Tallinn), Soufian Gouram (Hertha BSC), Henrik Ojamaa (Flora Tallinn), Ioan Yakovlev (FCI Levadia) and Markus Soomets (Flora Tallinn) are all out with injury, while Alex Matthias Tamm (Nõmme Kalju) and Karel Mustmaa (Benfica) are also absent.

The players will meet for the camp on January 5 in Tallinn, before heading to Cyprus from  January 6 – 13 for training just outside the town of Paphos. The side will play an international match against Sweden on Friday, January 12. The game starts at 8 p.m. local time at the Stelios Kyriakides Stadium in Paphos.
