With three games left in qualifying, Wales can still reach the 2022 World Cup automatically, but they will need a lot of luck and good results. The Dragons are currently eight points behind Group E leaders Belgium with three games left to play including one against the Nations League semi-finalists (who also need to play Estonia). So Rob Page and his men may look to secure their spot in the play-offs as a group runner-up. Wales are practically guaranteed a spot in the play-offs as one of the higher-ranked Nations League group winners, but entry through that path would see the Dragons unseeded and potentially given a tougher route to Qatar. A win over Estonia would see Wales jump to second, three points clear of Czech Republic with whom they drew 2-2 on Friday.
For Estonia, it’s an uphill battle to reach their first ever major tournament. The hosts are currently four points behind second-placed Czech Republic with three games left to play, so qualification through the play-offs is still a possibility. However, they will need to win at least two of their final three matches to even stand a chance and, unfortunately, after facing Wales, Estonia have to play Belgium and Czech Republic. Of their five games in qualifying so far, Estonia have won one, beating Belarus (against whom they also lost) and drawn one against Wales.
Estonia vs Wales: Match Stats
Wales weren’t good in their earlier fixture with Estonia but they will use that as motivation in order to keep their qualification hopes alive. The Dragons haven’t been the most exciting team to watch in Group E, scoring seven goals and conceding seven but last time out they were involved in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Czech Republic. Estonia should also not be counted out with eight goals in five games, though they have also conceded 15.
The man to fire Wales to glory could be Daniel James, who has re-found his spark at club level under Marcelo Bielsa, much to the benefit of Page and the Dragons too. It was James who scored the equaliser for Wales after Jakub Pesek and a Danny Ward own goal had seen Czech Republic turn things around following Aaron Ramsey’s opener.
