There’s only one place to start this episode, so we look back at the disgraceful racist behaviour towards Glen Kamara last week (let’s not give the offender or his club any more publicity here!) This show was hosted by Keke with Mark H and Rich, who also discuss the Finland National team squad that was just announced and preview the three upcoming games; Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ukraine and Switzerland.
They also talk about the recent result (singular) in the Suomen Cup and consider how the Veikkausliiga season will be affected by an upswing in COVID cases in Finland. They even find time for a quick ‘Ja sillä sipuli..‘ and to throw a little MORE shade at Mark W for moonlighting with other podcasts about Finnish football 😉

Ja sillä sipuli

- A lack of basic ball control skills. Often shouted at Mark H, when he controls the ball 5 metres away from his foot 😆
