A tournament in Skövde, Sweden for the Nordic countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and newcomer Greenland. Quality wise they were better than expected; lot’s of speed and pressing and their first win against Norway.
Further more it was an interesting tournament and I was curious what happened the last years with the development. One country sticked out a mile: Finland with Mico Martic has invested the last years in education and tactics and thus the deserved winner of this tournament, The other Nordic countries have to invest in teaching the coaches to equal the level of Finland in the upcoming years.
I myself tried to catch up the coaches of these countries in three days about the techniques and tactics in Futsal. I noticed that there’s a lot of need for these elements. I hope they will also invest so that they can make it hot for Finland in the next tournament to finaly compete in Europe.
