    Congrats to Estonia for making it to the qualifying play-off, we're green of jealousy over here! And you even got lucky with Ireland, you could've drawn a more difficult opponent.

    Since Finland is unsurprisingly out, I'm cheering for you guys!

    Estonia did beat Northern-Ireland 4-1 at home and 2-1 in N-Ireland. I hope that our team is as good against Ireland too.

    The only difference is that Northern-Ireland is the 70th team in the world rankings and Ireland is 29th.

    Well, Estonia has never gotten to the play-offs before, thus most Estonians are quite happy about it.

    LOL in my book this is called reparations. Obviously the Irish were given an easy opponent by UEFA for Thierry Henry playing handball in Paris two years ago.

    As far as I know, no one picks the opponents, it's all pure chance.

    Right, this is how it's supposed to be.

    is a pleasant surprise the Estonian national football team fight for the playoffs and I hope to be able to sort, as Latvia qualified for Euro 2004. Ireland is a favorite, but it is not a very strong team and i will be happy if the Estonians achieve this classification, because it will upgrade the country's football, and escape the "common sense" when the more traditional selections are classified. As a lover of football, I like that more and more new forces arise

    fifa ranking does not represent, unlike other sports, football played very well by the countries. Ireland is a stronger selection than Northern Ireland, but not much and it is quite possible to pass a surprise

    Ireland is definitely beatable, we play well now and then.

    Our defence is pretty good though which keeps us in the game til we get a goal somewhere.
