First game are tomorrow against Belarus. Historical opponent, because against them we achieved our first win in qualification campaign after re-independence in 1996 thanks to defender Sergei Hohlov Simson goal. Video of this match is here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez4NVLGO2vw
Some months earlier we lost in Belarus 1:0. Btw our first GK now Sergei Pareiko made his debut then aged 19. He replaced Mart Poom who got injury. After that lose we got 4 wins in row: first of them that 96 match, then three friendlys in 2000 (2:0 home thanks to Andres Oper two goals), 2004 (in Malta. Goals by Meelis Rooba and Marek Lemsalu. Both teams played with B-squads) and from our last game in home 2006 we took again thanks to Oper goals 2:1 win. Btw that was our only win in 2006.I`ve got two videos from 2000 and 2006:

+ his historical goal against Bukaresti Steaua in 1998
For intresting fact, that in 2002 he also played for Valeranga in friendly against Manchester United ;)

Tomorrow I have to be satisfied with draw. We missed a lot of main players (Pareiko, Ojamaa, Klavan, Piiroja, Rähn). predict line up: Londak, Jääger, Morozov, Bärengrub, Teniste, Puri, Vassiljev, Vunk, Kink, Zenjov, Viikmäe (first 30 minutes).
But as I know, then Belarus preparing for two qualification match against Finland. Maybe they keep some players :)

It is hard to believe Viikmäe got 114 matches for the NT...he's been around since forever and never been very good. I guess nobody would call him an Estonian football legend :D

Belarus, Trinidad & Tobago, and Kyrgyzstan? More exciting friendlies for Andy to look forward to.

It's a shame the grand opening of the brand new Maracana stadium couldn't have been Brazil vs. Estonia, that would've been a far grander spectacle than what they witnessed last night.

Neymar was so poor, Vassiljev would've demonstrated how to play like a superstar.

Lineup for tomorrow match against Kyrgystan. In brackets his home club and country
GK: Artur Koteko (Dnepro Mogilev, Belarus)

RB: Tihhon Šišov (Nõmme Kalju, Estonia)---- CD: Mikk Reintam (Jyvaskyla, Finland)----CD:Taavi Rähn (Hunan Billows, Chinese 1st division)----- LB: Taijo Teniste (Sogndal, Norway)

RM: Tarmo Kink (Györi Eto, Hungary)-----CM: Sergei Mošnikov (Gornik Zabrze, Poland)------ CM: Joel Lindpere (Chicago Fire, USA)-----LM: Sander Puri: (York City, England League Two)

Striker: Sergei Zenjov (now free agent, last played since 2008 in Lviv Karpatõ, Ukraine)---Priidu Hunt (Levadia, Estonia)

We even played once against Kyrgyztan. In 2000 we won in Kuressaare (capacity 2500) front of 800 people 1:0 thanks to Aivar Anniste goal. It was head coach from The Netherlands Arno Pjipers debut game.
Btw when talk about Pjipers, he left from Estonia 2004 after conflict with Aivar Pohlak and went with Janno Kivisild (long-time 2nd coach of Estonia NT) to Kazakhstan. He returned to Estonia in the end of 2011. He became general director and 2012 he became our U19 team head coach for European Championships. Some days ago came news that he left again to Kazakhstan but could again came to back Estonia later :D

Well tomorrow I hope our last 10 years biggest win (4:0 against Luxembourg in 2004).
Tomorrow our U21 also playing against Andorra. Hope to be personally on both game at stadium.

And also our FA made some preview about Kyrgyztan football. It consisted about them last results, FIFA position, but main point was that they brought in many players from Africa. Most dangerous from them are one Ghana striker who scored 3 goals in 3 games this year.

Our anthem are singing by Hong-Kong opera singer who live many years in Estonia and talk clean Estonian. Referees are come from Belarus.

Excully all the most I wait Latvia match in August.
