Piiroja confident Estonia can still qualify

Estonia captain Raio Piiroja is confident qualification for Euro 2012 is still a realistic target ahead of tonight's match against the Faroe Islands in Toftir. 

Piiroja told Eesti Paevaleht: "There is a fun atmosphere in the squad, and although it's only a couple of days since the Italy game, the team's spirit has not been affected." 

"The new game is already in sight and nobody is crying over Italy. In Italy we did not necessarily expect to win, but against the Faroe Islands we can get three points to bring us back into it."

A win tonight would put Estonia within a point of second placed Slovenia after seven games. Estonia then travel to Slovenia for their next qualifier on 2nd September, followed by Northern Ireland in Tallinn on 6th September.
