Finland Vs Ireland: 2-0
Ireland Vs Wales: 0-0
As has become the norm when Ireland are in play, Darren Randolph will be in charge of the goal-keeping duties for the day. The side’s shot stopper was responsible for the side’s 0-0 draw against Wales as he took the onus of protecting his side’s goal entirely on himself.
Attack has been dreary, laggard and lacklustre for Ireland in this edition of the competition. The side has offered absolutely nothing when it comes to the attacking side of the game, a team which has failed to score ever since its league opener.
And with Finland having kept two cleansheets on the bounce, this can easily end up into another shutdown in their favour. It sees us rope in the side’s entire defensive setup for this one with all of Jukka Raitala, Paulus Arajuuri, Joona Toivio and Jere Uronen being inducted in our side.
Elsewhere, the scorer of Ireland’s only goal in the tournament, CB Shane Duffy will be our pick from the side for the day’s showdown.
Robert Taylor has been quiessential to Finland’s impressive showings in Group 4. He’s spearheaded the side’s attack to emerge as the foundation of the team’s attack with his one goal and one assist.
Glen Kamara will be his partner for the impending matchup whilst we have a duo represent us from Ireland as well. Jeff Hendrick has had a solid start to life in the Premier League with his new club Newcastle United and the Ireland man has carried that form into the UNL as well.
Conor Hourihane attempted a couple of well versed attacking plays against Wales, squaring the ball to his counterparts in lethal positions to see him wrap up the one-two of picks from the side.
He’s yet to score by striker Teemu Pukki does have the one assist to show for his efforts to see him become the last player to be enshrined in our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Brady’s goal and assist see him captain our side for the day while Arajuuri is the vice-captain.
