Here is Finland's starting line-up for the Macedonia friendly in Prolep, Macedonia :

1 Antti Niemi
2 Petri Pasanen
3 Janne Saarinen
4 Toni Kuivasto
5 Hannu Tihinen
6 Aki Riihilahti
7 Vesa Vasara
8 Teemu Tainio
9 Jonatan Johansson
10 Jari Litmanen (c)
11 Joonas Kolkka

subs :
12 Peter Enckelman
13 Janne Hietanen
14 Sami Hyypiä
15 Petri Helin
16 Simo Valakari
17 Shefki Kuqi
18 Paulus Roiha

Bolton's keeper Jussi Jääskeläinen is to my understanding injured so he will not play for Finland.

Why is Hyppia a sub :confused: :wth: :crazy:. I assume he is just being rested since Macedonia is not a very threatening opponent (compared to Portugal who u guys thrashed :proud: ) and they are trying other defenders out






So did i get the formation (the :cool: and increasingly popular 4-2-3-1) and lineup right :D ;) :hopefull:

I guess you did. :D

I think it's a surprise to see Vasara on the pitch as he hasn't even played much in the team let alone in the first line-up. Manager Antti Muurinen seems to be giving new players more playing time. Pasanen has been injured but is expected to return to Ajax's starting eleven once he is fully fit.
