Raio Piiroja announced his retirement

One of the greatest figures in our football history. 113 caps (+testimonial),8 goals all time best cd and captain ever, my former neigbour and my one of the first favorite players
From wikipedia
Quote:
He is known for his impressing ability in the air, winning headers. As a captain for the Estonia national football team, Raio is always in the heart of the defense. As he is the captain of the squad, he is a central figure in all of their games Ė always fighting to give his all on the pitch and motivate his team not to give in
Anyway this was unfortunately excepted as he suffered several injuries in last years. Lately he is best remembered for his amazing tackle against Van Persie in september

Now, about a year later, not doing a single football game since then, his retirement is official. Testimonial match will be against Iceland on 31th March

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? AndÖ.itís the football, thatís the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
