We’re guessing there’s no word for postponement in Estonian

The vast majority of this weekend’s fixtures were called off as early as yesterday. Depending on your viewpoint this video either shows precisely why they have been postponed or indicates that footballers are too soft in this country.

The footage is from last year’s friendly between Estonia and Canada in Tallinn. The match was played on a snow covered pitch, with the snow continuing to fall and not so much as a fluorescent ball in sight. Slippery fun aplenty!
