England midfielder Frank Lampard has warned his side not to under-estimate Estonia, despite the minnows having lost all six of their Euro 2008 qualifiers to date.
The Baltic nation have also failed to find the net in any of their six defeats, but Lampard is still expecting a tough test in Tallinn.
He said: "Estonia are a better team than Andorra, make no mistake about that.
"It is always difficult to travel in Europe and we have to prepare ourselves for a different game than against Brazil.
"You can't go out there thinking if we're not winning after 15 minutes it's no good. It's going to be a tough game. The only thing that matters after the game is winning the game.
"The best thing we can take from Friday is pure confidence. Playing against some of the best players in the world and matching them, playing as a team, showing what we can do.
"If we play like that against Estonia then we will win the game.
"Do we have to win in Estonia? I don't know if it is as cut and dried as that, but we will go there with the intention to win. We are very determined to do that.
"We will go there feeling we have to win. We have had some disappointing results so far and at some stage we are going to have to get a run of winning games to make sure we qualify."
