Netherlands vs. Estonia, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Julian Finney

The Dutch are well on their way to qualifying for the next World Cup and should take another step in the right direction against lowly Estonia.

The Dutch will be looking to keep their perfect record in 2014 World Cup qualifying in tact as they welcome fifth placed Estonia to Amsterdam.

Wesley Sneijder returns for the Netherlands after missing their last four matches due to injury and a lack of match fitness. Sneijder has been playing regularly for new club Galatasaray after a contract dispute with Inter Milan left him sitting on the sidelines for an extended period.

Despite missing the playmaking midfielder, the Dutch has been doing very well for themselves earning draws and Germany and Italy in friendlies. They also smashed Romania 4-1 in their last qualifier back in October.

Dutch coach Louis Vaan Gaal has no reported injury issues but Estonia will be without defender Taavi Rahn and there are worries that Dmitri Kruglov will not be fit either. Estonia have only managed a single victory in qualifying up to this point, scoring one lone goal in four games.

Match Date/Time: 8:30 p.m. local, 3:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Amsterdam ArenA, Amsterdam, Netherlands

TV: Sportsnet (Canada)
