Finland came close to qualify for the 2010 FIFA Men’s World Cup in South Africa. They came third in their group with two points behind Russia that later qualified for a playoff. Finland has never qualified for a final tournament of FIFA Men’s World Cup. Qualifying Finland for FIFA men’s world cup has been a big challenge for the Finnish Football Association. Perhaps something has to be done differently to change cause.
Finland team are sometimes very good especially when they play against the bigger teams but they lack consistency and the character in and outside the field of play. If a Finnish team happens to give a spectacular performance in a particular match, the next match could be a disappointing one. This shows that something is lacking outside of the field of play. Usually, a spectacular performance in a previous game always motivates a team to do well in the next game. Finnish national team also show good flashes on the field of play with their quality passes and the ability of keep the ball but they usually lost this advantage after sometime on the field.
It will be a dream come true for many Finnish If Finland qualifies for the world cup final. In order to meet the expectation of many soccer loving fans in Finland, something has to be done differently either in the clubs, technical crew or management, Football Association, etc. A complete overhaul may be needed in the system in order to turn things around.
Research question: What should be done to make Finland qualify for 2004 world cup?
