After earning just a point in San Marino on Saturday Estonia coach Magnus Pehrsson sent out an experimental lineup against Jordan but nevertheless secured a 1-0 win. The hosts started very aggressively and scored the only goal of the game in the 16th minute when FC Erzgebirge Aue forward Henri Anier turned the ball into the net following a great cross from Frank Liivak.
"The match will be totally different compared to other matches we have had this autumn," said Estonia coach Magnus Pehrsson in San Marino.
"We are going to dominate on the pitch and create many chances to score. I don't think that my players can allow themselves to underestimate their opponents. We understand how important the three points are. A win would get us back in the race for the qualification. That is motivation enough."
FC Kaysar Kyzylorda forward Rimo Hunt and FC Levadia Tallinn defender Artur Pikk (pictured below), who missed the 2-1 friendly victory over Norway on 12 November, have since linked up with the Estonia squad.
