Finland and Northern Ireland, the two teams who failed to qualify for the Euro 2024 finals, face each other at Helsinki Olympic Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The Finns aim to recover from a heart-breaking 2-1 loss to Kazakhstan, but bear in mind that boss Markku Kanerva should use this qualifier to test as many players as possible. All Forss, Kallman, and Uronen are pushing for recalls to the starting XI.

The Green and White Army, meanwhile, are having a qualifying campaign to forget, with the team collecting only six points in total in the process from possible 24.

As Northern Ireland are on a three-game losing run on the road in Group H, we are tempted to put our money on Finland, whose display in the defeat to Kazakhstan was anything but poor.

Shea Charles is banned for the visiting side, while Derby County forward Conor Washington is widely expected to sneak into the starting line-up.

This match will be played on 17/11/2023 at 18:00

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended Pick: Finland to Win.
