[Podcast] Honka Win The Liigacup, Huuhkajat Squad For Murcia Training Camp, Iceland & Slovakia Previews, Suomen Cup Update

We have a full team for this episode, which is just as well, as we also have a full agenda. We start by lauding Honka for winning the first trophy of the 2022 season, before looking forward to Keke’s trip to Murcia to watch the Huuhkajat take on Iceland & Slovakia.

We also discuss the Palloliitto’s innovative marketing for the upcoming Helmarit match vs. Georgia and salute the new contract given to Finland manager Markku Kanerva. Finally, we look at recent events in the Suomen Cup.
