Scotland’s Women won’t be going to Euro 2022 after losing 1-0 to Finland last night – the one result they couldn’t afford. The Scots pressed so hard for a late winning goal at Easter Road that they left themselves exposed to Finland’s counter-attack. And what a devastating break it was, coming in the fifth minute of added time. Sub Amanda Rantanen burst clear and hit the hosts with the old Chris Brass, off-the-face sneak attack.
MAALI! (Finnish for GOAL!, as you might have guessed.)
If you’re wondering why Rantanen burst into tears after scoring, some context: it was her debut and the goal, scored with the last kick of the game, pretty much ensured Finland will qualify for the Euros. Either that or her face really stung.
- I do love that Finland flag home kit.
- Losing to a goal like this is peak Scotland.
