I love it how last year nobody thought Finland stood a chance to win the USA in the QF. All the merch sellers in Helsinki put their stuff on sale because they were so ****ing sure Finland would lose. Apparently this was based on the 0-5 loss on Mother's Day, which led to a players-only meeting and Jalonen taking a serious look at the game plan. It may have been a small miracle for Finland to have won that game, but the negativity back then was ridiculous regardless.
This year the press seems more than certain Finland's going to win. The point is that you can't know and it's a fact that Finland hardly deserved to win the preliminary round game against Slovakia.
