Emmi Alanen Scored a Goal and Saved a Penalty Kick in a World Cup Qualifier
Finland’s dream to qualify for the football’s World Cup for the very first time suffered a major blow today after losing 3-1 an away game against Austria. Finland’s goal scorer Alanen also saved a penalty kick after the goalkeeper was sent-off during the last minutes of the game.
Fortunately qualification is still in Finland’s own hands but is now slightly more difficult. Photographed earlier this year during a practice session.
