[Podcast] Finnish Football Show 34: France 0-2 Finland | Nations League Preview | Veikkausliiga 2020 Review

In this episode, firstly, we look back at the historic win for Finland away to France. We then turn our attention forward to this week’s Nations League fixtures. There are two away games for the Huuhkajat, who take on Bulgaria and Wales in the final two games in the 2020 Nations League.

We’ll also look back at the Veikkausliiga season, which was cut short after the 22 ‘regular season’ games (as we’d speculated in the last show). We’ll look at the winners, the losers, the surprise packages and the predictably average.
