November Huhkajat has been chosen.

Markku Kanervan piloted by Finland, the Finnish national team will face Northern Ireland (17.11.) and San Marino (20.11.) in the last matches of the European Championship qualifiers.

The theme of the November matches is to have a blast, especially in terms of gameplay. A direct European Championship place escaped Huuhkajie’s clutches with two losses in October.

However, Finland has a chance to get to the Games through further qualifications. The playoff spot obtained through the Nations League means that Finland will play in the further qualifiers in March. Then Finland must win two separate matches to advance to the Games.

Kanerva pulled a surprise card from his sleeve. A player who plays in the Manchester City Academy was included in the A national team Tomas Galvez. Galvez, 18, who thrives as a left fullback, was part of the Huuhkajie winter camp, but has so far appeared in the youth national teams.

Two familiar players return to the team. Robin Lod has returned to playing form after a long injury. His most recent national matches are from March.

Got into a good mood in Augsburg of the German Bundesliga Fredrik Jensen see you in Huuhkaj too.
