NYRB's Lindpere still not committing to Estonia

Joel Lindpere says he still has not committed to the Estonian national team despite them getting set for two of their biggest matches ever.

The Baltic nation will have to successfully navigate a two-legged play-off with Republic of Ireland on November 11 and 15 if they want to compete in next summer's European Championships but New York Red Bulls midfielder Lindpere is unsure if he will answer their call.

The 30-year old has not played for his country since last summer and has remained non-committal on the upcoming play-offs as he may be in the MLS play-offs with New York.

"No, no, not yet," Lindpere said. "I know this can come, but I'm really proud of what they have done and I think we're going to have the [MLS] playoffs at the same time.

"I'm following every game, what they do. For me, it's not the best time to discuss these things.

"I'm going to keep concentrating on my work here and let's see what's going to happen in the future."
