Estonia's Meistriliiga became the second European league to return from hiatus yesterday, with Nõmme Kalju FC's Kaarel Usta following Erling Haaland's themed goal celebration for Borussia Dortmund at the weekend with his own.

Three matches were played in the Estonian top flight as it resumed, having been stopped after just one round of matches because of Covid-19.

Kalju were 2-0 winners over FC Kuressaare to move joint top of the league.

Haaland and his team-mates practised social distancing which was captured in a striking photograph.

Usta's goal ensured a 2-0 win for the visitors and in his celebration in front of no spectators – which will be a long-term policy for Meistriliiga – still entertained.

He motioned using a sainitiser dispenser and pretended to wash his hands before receiving the congratulations of team-mates.

The Estonia league continues today and will run as normal to late autumn.

The League of Ireland is the only top-flight division in Europe with no plan in place to return as the FAI struggle to find the money needed for clubs to fund its return.
