THE touring Estonia soccer team is expecting a tough game against the Vodafone Fiji football side at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.
Laced with professional players, the 80th FIFA ranked team will be using the game to expose their under 21 players.
Head coach Martin Reim said majority of the players had never represented their national team and this would be a wonderful opportunity for the new boys to stamp their mark.
He said the players did not know what to expect from the Fijians.
"It's great opportunity for us to come here and play and we know it will not be an easy game," said Reim.
"We had seen some Fiji games and we are expecting a tough game.
"There are lot of younger players and this is an opportunity to show their potential, so we can use them for qualification games."
He said the side would do its best to beat the Fijians.
"This team is a mixture of under-21 and local-based league players.
"We want to play for a win, but it is not easy and we will try and play our game and see if it is enough or not."
Captain Marko Meerits said he did not know what to expect from the Fijians.
On paper Estonia is the team to beat based on their soccer ranking. Fiji is ranked 175th but Meerits warned his boys not to underestimate their opposition.
"We don't know much about Fiji, but we will see the video and we'll know more. It's going to be tough game.
"Ranking is just a number and we are treating the game seriously."
