Sakari Manninen hit the Lions World Championship goal in extra time.

    She was the mother of all the hockey finals. Finland is at a loss of 0–1. It will then take the lead 3–1 until Canada weighs 3–3 at the end of the 3rd installment. Overtime Sakari Manninen strikes the fourth World Cup gold in Lions history.

    – It was a pretty confusing feeling when the puck went to the finish line. I got my helmet straps open a bit and set off to go towards the middle when everyone jumped on their neck, Manninen said.

    Last year, Finland lost the World Cup final in Canada in extra time 2-3.

    – This really means a lot. It is such a great honor to win World Cup gold at home, in the new hall and when the boom is on, Manninen glowed.

    He was not in the World Cup last season due to injury.

    Manninen is my talisman. He washed the World Cup gold in 2019 and the Olympic gold in 2022. Now came the third brightest.

    He is the new national hero.

    – I don’t think so, the center grinned.

    In line with the triple chain

    Juho Lammikon The first two rounds of the three-way chain led by Finland, especially the first two rounds. It played like a whip, even though it didn’t get any power.

    – There really wasn’t any emotional storm, even though the game was rippling and the situation changed. The next goal wins in extra time, which is what it costs. If you think and reckon, then take a standstill afterwards. I really had credit all the time to win. Our chain had a good game on Sunday. It was printed and printed, Pond commented.

    Canada had a more well-known group on paper, but the Finnish collective was once again golden.

    – Credit was all the time that happened no matter what, so we won, the center of the quadruple Hannes Björninen mood.

    He settled for Olympic gold in Beijing.

    – I have never experienced such an atmosphere. The solution paint was something insanely great in the new hall in Tampere. This winning in front of a home crowd is different than in China, but I can’t compare gold medals, a Lahti resident said.

    Hardest of all

    Canada has been a bad piece for the Lions over the years. Worst of all. Before Sunday, the countries had faced 128 times, of which Finland had 37 wins, 10 draws and 81 losses.

    In the World Cup finals, the countries now faced for the sixth time. Maple leaves were better in 1994 in Italy, 2007 and 2016 in Russia and last year in Latvia. Finland’s previous world championship in 2019 came in Slovakia, when the red and white fell 3–1.

    – On Sunday, we had a game in our gloves all the time, and there wasn’t much worry about it.

    In recent decades, there was talk that the cassette of Finnish players would not last.

    Now those speeches can be forgotten at the latest. In the World Championship final, the opponent reached the levels behind two goals, but in the extra time Finland won.

    – We went to overtime but to play. Nothing else will help. We had a chance to win. In the booth before overtime, it was quiet at first, but an attitude was quickly found that courage would prevail, Björninen said.

    What was on your mind when you saw Sakari Manninen’s winning goal?

    – When we got into force, I always had strong credit that we will do it now. The professionals then took care of the puck in the net. After the goal, it was a feeling that cannot be described in words, Björninen replied.
