Estonia vs Netherlands live streaming: Match preview
On Friday night, goals from Frenkie de Jong, Donyell Malen on his debut and Georginio Wijnaldum saw Holland come from a goal down to win 4-2 in Hamburg against Germany. Ronald Koeman’s side are on six points after three games with their only defeat coming against Germany in Amsterdam in March.
As for Estonia, they conceded a stoppage time goal to lose 2-1 at home to Belarus on Friday and have no points so far and that is unlikely to change any time soon. Estonia have only ever finished a qualification campaign pointless and that was it Euro ’96 qualifying.
Estonia have lost all four matches with their chances of qualifying for the European Championship reduced to zero. Manager Martin Reim was sacked after the 8-0 demolition against Germany and replaced with Karel Voolaid (whose first match in charge was a 2-1 home defeat against Belarus).
Striker Erik Sorga equalised in the second half but Estonia conceded in added time and have lost their last seven European Championship qualifiers and failed to score in five of them.
Estonia’s squad lack quality and this could be one of the main reasons they have lost their last seven European Championship qualifiers. New manager Karel Voolaid faces the biggest test so far against Netherlands.
Captain and centre-back Ragnar Klavan is coming to the end of his career with strikers Rauno Sappinen and Erik Sorga young and inexperienced.
It’s going to be an uphill battle against a Netherlands side on a high. Bookmakers
