Wales v Estonia previous meetings, who has won more?
Wales and Estonia will play each other competitively for the first time, having only played friendlies prior to Wednesday’s meeting, both of which
The first match was in May 1994 when the Dragons - then managed by Mike Smith - defeated the former Soviet Union side 2-1 in Tallinn.
Liverpool legend Ian Rush opened the scoring before David Phillips scored one of only two goals for his country. Martin Reim - Estonia’s most capped player with 157 caps - scored a penalty but it wasn’t enough to stop a Wales win.
It would be 15 years until the two would meet again, this time in Llanelli, when in front of a 4000 crowd at Parc y Scarlets - a ground more reserved for rugby - Wales won 1-0.
Featuring the likes of then young Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale, Wales beat Estonia courtesy of a Robert Earnshaw penalty in the 26th minute.
Wales v Estonia team news
After coming through the last two matches unbeaten, Rob Page has five more players to call upon from his original 26-man squad, making for a selection headache both in defence and attack.
Owing to the tie being played in Kazan, trio Brandon Cooper, Ethan Ampadu, and Tyler Roberts were all absent due to visa issues. All three trained back in Wales' training base in Hensol whilst their teammates did the job in Russia.
Fulham midfielder Harry Wilson is also back after serving his suspension for the red card that he picked up in Wales' 4-0 defeat to Denmark in the Round of 16 at EURO 2020.
A welcome boost is that after successful rehabilitation, Joe Rodon has joined up with the squad. The 23-year-old missed the first month of the season with Tottenham Hotspur due to injury but the North London club have granted him permission to play on Wednesday.
Wales players available versus Estonia: Hennessey, Ward, King, Gunter, Davies, Ampadu, Mepham, Lockyer, Rodon, J.Lawrence, Norrington-Davies, Cooper, Allen, Wilson, J.Williams, Morrell, Smith, Woodburn, Levitt, Sheehan, Colwill, Bale, James, Roberts, Johnson, Harris.
