Finland prepares for the next qualifying round for the 2023 World Cup in March. Our neighbors did so after the planned defeat of Great Britain in Wanda in the third and final group match in three days. Finnish debutant Victor Kronmark played a key role in this competition, writes Finnish Hufvudstadsbladet.
Finland beat second-placed Estonia by 5 points to advance from Group 2, also ahead of third-placed Georgia.
