Finland and Norway will play the final of the first FIFPro Winter Tournament. The Finnish Team JPY beat the Republic of Ireland, while the Norwegian Team NISO proved to be too strong for Sweden.

 

Finland beat Ireland with 2-1. The win was deserved, as Team JPY appeared to be just a little bit better than their opponents, Team PFAI. Jukka Santala opened the score after an assist of Zakaria Abahassine. After Daryl Kavanagh was brought down in the penalty area, Sean Kelly equalized from the penalty spot. Tommi Siekkinen scored the winner with a firm header.

 

Norway awaits Finland in the final. Team NISO defeated their neighbours, Team SFS from Sweden with 1-0. Jimi Akinyeni scored the only goal. He was very alert at the second post, where he tapped in the ball after a shot from a team mate.
