If this happens then I see a loss for Finland to be very possible. Or then Finland somehow finds its scoring touch and wins in convincing fashion. However it is, Finland has no business underestimating the Norwegian team, and if they keep coming out flat as they sometime do they could find themselves in a hole again. And I am not convinced the Finns have the mental toughness to come out of a hole when it's really on the line. Sure, they have done so in almost every game this tournament, but it wasn't in an elimination context.
The Finns are notorious for freezing and ******** the bed in pressure situations no matter what the sport is.
Nice blanket statement to end your rant. BTW, Finland will not underestimate Norway. They will come into the game with guns blazing and will find their scoring touch. I predict something along the lines of 5-2 final for Finns.
