Finland is set to face a top-notch football country.
Finland’s men’s national football team is gearing up for a significant match on June 4 against Portugal, which will be held in Lisbon. This match is particularly noteworthy as Portugal emerged victoriously from their European Championship qualifying group and are currently preparing for the upcoming European Championship. This major football event is scheduled to take place in Germany, spanning between June and July.
According to the International Football Association’s rankings of men’s national teams, Portugal holds an impressive seventh place. Therefore, this match will certainly pose a substantial challenge for the Finnish team, also known as Huuhkajat, as they will be competing against a highly-ranked and formidable team. To put this in perspective, Finland’s current ranking stands at 59.
In a recent announcement made by the Finnish Football Association, it was revealed that following the match against Portugal, Finland is scheduled to face Scotland in Glasgow.
At this point, it remains uncertain whether these matches, scheduled for the beginning of June, will serve as Finland’s preparation for the European Championship competitions, or if they are just ordinary country matches. However, it is known that Finland will continue to pursue their spot in the European Championship final tournament in March, during the further qualification round in Wales.
