dbo:abstract
  • The Finland national football team (Finnish: Suomen jalkapallomaajoukkue, Swedish: Finlands fotbollslandslag) represents Finland in international football competitions and is controlled by the Football Association of Finland. Unlike other European nations, ice hockey is extremely popular in Finland, which diverts athletic talent away from football, contributing to its historic lack of sucess in UEFA competitions. As of 2018, they are the only Nordic country to have never qualified for the FIFA World Cup or for the UEFA European Championship. But although the Finnish national team has never qualified for a finals tournament of the FIFA World Cup or the UEFA European Championship in spite of its long history, the Nordic nation made remarkable progression in the 2000s, reaching a peak of 30th on the Elo Rankings. Under coach Roy Hodgson they achieved notable results against much more established European teams. After a few years of poor results, they dipped to a FIFA ranking of 110, the lowest in their history. However, in the autumn of 2017, Finland began to rise up the FIFA rankings and, as of June 2019, they sit at 45th. (en)
