Jambos head for 'farce'.
Jefferies was pleased with the draw and said yesterday: "It's definitely a trip into the unknown and we'll need to find out as much as possible about them. But I'm pleased to have avoided Partisan Belgrade and Levski Sofia."
Hearts will play in the same stadium in Tallinn as the infamous game that never was in 1996 when Estonia failed to turn up for the World Cup qualifier with Scotland.
And Lantana General Manager Alexander Belov confirmed that no work had been carried out on the Kadriorg Stadium since the Scotland farce.
He said: "The game will be played at the Kadriorg Stadium because that is the only venue big enough in Tallinn.
"There have been no changes to the floodlight system, but we have light evenings at the moment anyway, so I don't think that will be a problem this time."
Hearts may be without Colin Cameron whose troublesome pelvic injury has still not cleared up from last season.
The influential midfielder who signed a two-year extension to his present contract last week, is still suffering discomfort and surgery may now be the only answer.
