Finland vs France Squads,  Match Preview & Prediction & Team Performances


Finland is my fave team in Europe. I love to betting their games. You can guess what they can do in matches. They are not surprising anyone. I love to style of Finland, I hope they keep this useless performance for a while. So we can gain some cash again… Finland got 4th position with 3 wins, a draw and 6 loses in Euro 2012 Qualifications Group. It was what we expecting from Finland. They have Belarus, Georgia, France and Spain in the World Cup Qualification group now. I believe Finland will be bottom of standings at the end of qualifications. There’s no San Marino to beat this time…Speaking of a surprising result… Yeah Finland got a surprising result Euro 2012 Qualifications. San Marino was close to get 1 point after centuries later. Finland just managed to score just 1 goal against them. Thanks God, I didn’t bet this game. I just remembered to what they have done against Liechtenstein in 2009 so I let it go…

The most valuable player is Teemu Pukki in Finland squad. He is playing for Schalke 04. He is just 22 years old and he is really promising but I believe being promising is useless against France. He is playing in striker position and he capped 14 times for Finland and scored 2 goals. 21 years old, young midfielder Alexander Ring is another important player for Finland. He is playing for Mönchengladbach and he scored a goal and made an assist against Dynamo Kyiv in Champions League.


Finland Squad:
Lukas Hradecky (Esbjerg FB)
Petri Pasanen (AGF Aarhus)

France had good performance at qualification group stages of Euro 2012. They got a lose and 3 draws in group and they qualified to Euro 2012 Finals. They quit Euro 2012 after they lost against Spain in quarter final. They don’t have famous players like in the past. I can remember Eric Cantona, David Ginola, Basque player Bixente Lizarazu, Zinedine Zidane, Pires and many others… I can’t see any stars like them in France squad now. But they are still strong team.



Franck Ribéry is the most imporant player in France squad now. He is playing for Bayern since 207 … He scored 35 goals at total and made several assists with Bayern. He will be key player of the match. Real Madrid’s striker Karim Benzema already will affect to match. He scored 44 goals in Real in 90 matches. He also scored 15 goals for France in 50 matches.


France Squad:
Hugo Lloris (Tottenham)
Patrick Evra (Manchester United)
Christophe Jallet (Paris Saint-Germain)
Adil Rami (Valencia)
