25.11.2021 Helmarit Match Report: Sweden 2-1 Finland

November 25, 2021

Playing away against the old enemy is never easy, but when your closest rival is also ranked number 2 in the world, you know you're in for a battle. That is what Finland faced but they also made sure they went down fighting against Sweden; standing toe-to-toe and attempting to play their own game.

The other result in the group, Ireland 1-1 Slovakia, leaves the standings wide open at the halfway stage. Mark W and Keke discuss the action after the final whistle.

November 11, 2021

In the midst of uncertainty about where, exactly, Finland will play Bosnia-Herzegovina, the FFS team look at Markku Kanerva's squad selection for these two, vital World Cup qualifiers.

On 13th November, Finland travel (in theory) to Zenica to play Bosnia-Herzegovina. Then on 16th November, the Huuhkajat play hosts to France in a game that could see Finland qualify for its second consecutive major finals.

There's some work to be done yet, though, as Mark W, Rich, Mark H and Keke discuss...

8.11.2021 Veikkausliiga 2021 Review - HJK Helsinki Crowned Champions 🏆🏅

November 8, 2021

The final weekend of the Veikkausliiga 2021 season was full of drama. First played second, as KuPS hosted HJK in a battle for the title. While third played fourth, as Inter hosted SJK in the bronze medal match... and what accommodating hosts they were too! This game also turned into a shoot-out for the top scorer prize, with Benjamin Källman and Ariel 'Tuco' Ngueukam going toe-to-toe in this game, and both finishing on 14 goals for the season.

Mark H, Rich, Keke and Mark W get together to review the final weekend's action and let's just say, there were mixed emotions for the FFS team! We also look at the action in the Veikkausliiga/Ykkönen play-off between AC Oulu & RoPS.

26.10.2021 Match Report: Finland 1-2 Ireland

October 26, 2021

Back on home soil, the Helmarit struggled to break down a resolute Ireland side that got players behind the ball to defend, while making the most of counter-attacking on the break. A fine goal-of-the-match from Adelina Engman, was not enough against a good direct free kick and a close-range header for Ireland. Mark W, Keke and Rich got together for a chat straight after the game.
