The Finnish NT keeper Jussi Jääskeläinen has been chosen as the best goalkeeper in the English Premier League. Jussi currently plays for Bolton Wanderers, who had a great start to this season. Jussi is also one of the keepers that may replace Barthez at ManU. The crazy thing however is that Jussi is the second keeper in the Finnish NT. Antti Niemi who plays for Scottish club Hearts is the number one keeper for the Finnish NT. There is also another Finnish keeper who plays as a number one keeper in the EPL and that is Peter Enckelman at Aston Villa. Enckelman is the #3 keeper for Finland. The problem is that we have too many good goalkeepers in Finland! :D

Sami Hyypiä was chosen as the best defender in the English Premier League. This means that both the best keeper and defender in the Premier League were from Finland and this is a great honour for Finnish football.
