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

Julian Finney

Wesley Sneijder returns as the Dutch look to take another step towards Brazil.

The Netherlands are sitting comfortably at the top of Group D with an eight point advantage over second placed Hungary. That doesn't mean that Luis Van Gaal's team can coast yet, though, with a couple more points needed to secure their spot in Brazil.

Wesley Sneijder makes his return to the Dutch side -- replacing the injured Georginio Wijnaldum --  after being dropped by Van Gaal earlier in the year. Rafael van der Vaart was forced out with a late injury and has been replaced by Adam Maher. Van Gaal's defense is also a bit inexperienced, in international terms, with Ron Vlaar the most experienced defender on the roster. The Aston Villa man has just 16 caps to his name

Estonia sit in fifth place, five points out of second place and a playoff spot.

Match Date/Time: 9:30 p.m. local, 2:30 p.m. ET

Venue: A. Le Coq Arena, Tallinn, Estonia
