Andres OPER (07.11.1977) - Roda J.C. (NED) 105/32
Kaimar SAAG (05.08.1988) - Tallinna FC Levadia -/-

Three new guys: Teniste, Saag and Vunk. The first two are quite a promising players but probably none of them is ready for this level yet.

Two regular starters are suspended: Klavan (who'll probably miss Macedonia too for his red card) and Jääger. Reim is in the selection again.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Bad news is that Poom isn't fit to play as he has problems with his back...and as Kotenko is out too, it means that Londak will start his first official match for Estonia.

We've met Croatia five times before in the past, all there matches have been EURO qualifiers:

1994 0:2 at home
1995 1:7 away
2002 0:0 away :thmbup:
2003 0:1 at home
2007 0:1 at home


Maybe we'll get lucky again in Zagreb...we sure haven't had any luck so far in this campaign.

Dubious penalty given against us during the opening minutes for a handball that clearly wasn't deliberate but luckily Srna hits the post

2-0 for Croatia, both goals were a nice individual skill from Eduardo in the final minutes of the first half. We were very mediocre in every area. Second half was very boring as neither of the teams bothered much.
