In our episodes of 27.5.2021, Mark W and Keke admitted to getting emotional when they first heard the Finland song for Euro 2020. So we invited Niila Arajuuri ‘the man who made Keke cry’ onto the show to explain himself! This was going to be a segment in a future FFS, but we felt it deserved to be a stand-alone episode.
Mark W flew solo on this one and spoke with Niila about his love of football and music and how music one the battle for his affections. He explains how it feels to have an Eagle Owls for a brother and the process of writing an anthem in Finnish rather than English.
