--------------------------------------------

We have the best squad available basically and the last 3 matches with Turkey have ended in a draw. Our recent results (0-0 vs Turkey, 0-0 vs Portugal, 0-1 vs Brazil) haven't been bad. Turkey is a huge favourite of course but maybe we can make it a hard day for them.

Going to be a tough battle against the Estonians, please leave your clubs at home :D



Estonia plays a nice 9-0-1 formation :thmbup:

we let some midget score a header when he is left completely unmarked on a corner situation after Pareiko failed to punch the ball away

3 soft goals conceded

Your two goals were avoidable too though. The best team one. For a minute there I thought you were gonna kill our world cup ambitions :(

As I looked it up I thought it was a good result. Reminded me of that nasty 2:4 to the Netherlands a few qualifiers ago. What was the actual performance like?

We were awful in defense, all goals were avoidable. The first one was especially stupid, worst mistake I've seen Jääger do. Turkey was concentrating on attack only and left us a plenty of time and space even after they went 2-1 so we got some chances. We looked relatively good on attack by our standards but overall it was definitely a huge failure. Basically we have no hope against strong teams away from home if our defense doesn't play 100% on their best.

I'm also annoyed by Rüütli's comments where he sees our 2 somewhat lucky goals against Turkey's mediocre defending as a "positive" and says how he regrets the mistakes that led to conceding 4 goals but "we shouldn't be ashamed". This is typical lame inferiority complex mentality: if we score against strong teams then it is somehow a success and shows that "we can attack" even if we play like crap in the defense in that same match.
