EURO 2020 draw – Finnish coach looks forward to facing Belgium: "a fantastic experience"


(Belga) Finland will play its first international tournament, the Euro 2020, next summer. For the first time, Finland has been added to the group of Belgium. "Playing against Belgium in such a tournament will be a fantastic experience for us," coach Markku Kanerva said Saturday night in a mixed zone.

"We knew we would have to face a strong team in the group stage, because it was clear in advance that we would inherit Group A or B. Belgium will be a fantastic experience for us, it is N.1 worldwide. We have nothing to lose If I had to choose, I would have opted for this group, St. Petersburg and Copenhagen will have to travel less, every day and every hour is important in the preparation of the next match. For our fans too this group will be nice, we play nearby, otherwise it was Rome and Baku. " Finland will play their third group match against Belgium. "I hope they have won their first two games, so their coach will give players who are not on the field time to play, and they will be very motivated because they want to show their coach that 'they are ready, so I do not know if it's a benefit.' (Belga)
