[Podcast] Veikkausliiga After 4 Games, Helmarit Match Reports, Suomen Cup Progress & Mixu’s Back!

The FFS team was selected from a full squad for this episode as Mark W, Rich, Keke & Mark H reconvene to bring you an update across the world of football in Finland. We start by looking at the current state of play in Veikkausliiga 2022, where all the teams have played four games.

We also discuss Helsinki IFK’s tough start to the season, their new manager (already!) Mixu Paatelainen and the upcoming ‘Stadin Derby’ between HIFK and HJK. We look back at the recent World Cup qualifiers for the women’s national team, the Helmarit, and results & upcoming fixtures in the Suomen Cup.
