Hungary vs Estonia by Sunshine
Even with a clear defeat against Romania on the road last Friday with a 3:0 result. Hungary is still in a hunt for the second position that would give them the play-off ticket, but now in a bit tougher situation as they have to overcome two points difference from second placed Romania with both teams having three matches till the end.
Hungarians must be disappointing with the previous match they lost as they never looked very competitive in the game and never actually went into the game, while the home side scored two goals in first thirty minutes, while they added one more near the end of the match. Things are now much more difficult for them, as they have to wait for some setback from Romanians, while their next match will be visiting Holland, which is by far the strongest team in the group. Still, it was only their second defeat, as the team tries to continue playing as offensive as possible. Hungarian national coach Sandor Egervari has no new problems making the squad and should field up his best in a try to get easy three pointers.
Estonia is coming into this game after taking a huge breath of success last Friday drawing at home against much more superior Holland with a 2:2 result in Tallin. They showed many positive signs during the match, as they showed very offensive face, while the visitors were saved from defeat with a goal in last minutes of the game.
Despite their qualification hopes are over long time ago, Estonia played really well and despite being back in the scoreline already in second minute with a goal from Robben, they fought well and never gave up, getting a 2:1 lead in 57th minute as both goals were scored by Vassiljev. However, Dutch side still managed to get a point scoring a goal from the penalty spot by van Persie in fourth minute of added time. Still, it must be said that the Dutch side was better during the game and it wouldn't be unfair if the game ended as their victory. Being six points away from Romania, they can't hope for much better run till the end of the qualifying road and will probably use the rest of the match to filter out their squad for next qualifications. Important central defender Priroja is suspended following his red card in last minutes of previous match.
Hungarians will look to win in the easiest possible way, hoping to hear the good news from the derby match between Romania and Turkey. Estonia did nice in previous match, but they are still nothing special away from home and now missing one of the most important defenders, they shouldn't trouble their hosts a lot.
