FIFA World Cup – qualifiers
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
Finland was demonstrating its amazing character during the match
against Croatia (1:1), Turkey at home arena was destroyed by Iceland
(0:3). As a result, both teams have already left the World Cup 2018
and this match will be very important in regards to reputation.
Federation will be able to estimate the possibility of continuation
of collaboration with Lucescu and the Northmen will try to show one
more good game.
Northmen during this qualification campaign did what they were able
to do – last but one place and 8 scored points. Finland was
fighting in each match but the lack of class and high game level
influenced on the results. Markku Kanerva doesn’t have very
experienced and strong squad resource but even with these football
players Finland had spent series of three matches without defeats
(two victories and one draw) and only because of the lack of
tournament distance didn’t fight for the right to get into the
World Cup 2018.
work of Mircea Lucescu as a head coach of Turkey is criticized by
many people as under his supervision Turkey has lost twice (Ukraine
and Iceland) and also had pleased its fans by the victory over
Croatia. The matter is in the instability of the squad of Turkey and
the lack of mutual understanding between the players. The coach from
Romania is lately busy with his coaching ideas and doesn’t think
about whom he is working with. The squad potential is rather good and
such football players as Çalhanoğlu and Turan can be more helpful
for their team but with Lucescu they are often warming up the bench.
speaking, 6 months ago Turkey would be an obvious favorite for this
match and would have great advantage over Finland in terms of
individual mastership. But now the Northmen have added in their game
values and Turkey has lost.
