Juuso Rosenqvist: Euro 2020, Finland's first Finals

As we have never been in Euros. But for me, the answer has to be the moment we qualified for euros. I was in a festival with nearly 20k people, and they stopped a concert to show the last 5 minutes of the game against Liechtenstein that secured us the qualification. When the referee blew the whistle, the whole audience just screamed and cheered.

The dream of generations is done, Finland is in Euros for the first time ever. We had been so many times so close, but so far, of actually getting into the world cup or euros, so to it finally happen, and be real, the feeling was just unbelievable. I also have to give a shout-out to the video when our squad was announced. All kinds of different celebrities announcing the players, is shows what it means to this little country of 5.5million people.

Finland is known of ice hockey and other winter sports, we are playing football in the Euros, and I can promise, results aside, we will give Denmark, Russia and Belgium a run for their money.
