Sogndal IL Fotball defensive midfielder Taijo Teniste will sit out Estonia's Group E qualifiers against Lithuania and England because of a thigh injury. Coach Magnus Pehrsson has called up Assyriska Föreningen's Kaimar Saag instead. Konstantin Vassiljev and Igor Morozov are both doubts despite taking part in training.
With Lithuania to come on Thursday before the visit of England to Estonia, who opened with a 1-0 defeat of Slovenia, coach Magnus Pehrsson said as the team gathered: "There has been a lot of working within the coaching staff, but you really wait for this day to come. Now we can working together with the players.
"Today, we will have the examinations of all the players. Kostja [Vassiljev] and Taijo Teniste didn't play yesterday [for their clubs] while Igor Morozov was on the bench on Saturday. So, we don't know yet if they will train during next two days and play on Thursday. The match against Lithuania is more important for now [than the qualifier against England] because it is the next game to come."
