All the preparation, all the training sessions, all the efforts of the coaching staff - only to fall apart inside 60 seconds of the game.
Croatia's visit to Estonia on Tuesday got off to the worst possible start, with Siim Luts the beneficiary of some sloppy defending.
After knocking the ball around the back for the opening 30 seconds, Estonia sent a long ball over the top of the Croatia defence, leaving defenders panicked.
A poor clearance then resulted in a hurried defender giving the ball back to the hosts, before Luts knocked the ball between the goalkeeper's legs to open the scoring.
The game ended 3-0 to Estonia, with the only forgiving factor for Ante Čačić's men being it was a friendly.
