Key Estonia midfielder Konstantin Vassiljev is hoping to return for their next UEFA EURO 2016 qualifiers after missing the opening 1-0 win in Slovenia with a knee injury.

Vassiljev uffered a knee injury during his debut for GKS Piast Gliwice but is now running and doing physical exercises, and will be training with a ball next week. "It's getting better every day," he told Õhtuleht. "I have a chance to recover before the next national team matches. Piast Gliwice will have their next game in the Polish league on 5 October, and I hope to be at least among the players on the bench."

Estonia visit Lithuania on 9 October before welcoming England three days later. The Vilnius game is on an artificial surface for Estonia will be training on a similar pitch in Tallinn.
