Watch out for this Montenegro player:

For this match, Stefan Savic will be the player to watch throughout these ninety minutes. Atletico Madrid's star center back is one of Montenegro's most experienced and referential players due to the great resume he has in Europe, also, he has become a real wall so he will be a difficult opponent for the rival offenses and a piece of security in Montenegro's defense.

10:56 AMa month ago

Watch out for this player from Finland:

For this match, Teemu Pukki will be the player to watch for Finland's national team. The veteran and star striker of Norwich is in charge of the team's offense and providing goals for his national team, also, the great experience he has had throughout his career has allowed him to position himself as a reference and symbol of care for opposing defenses so that, at any time, Teemu Pukki could tip the scales in their favor.

Expectations continue to rise

The Montenegro team is not known for being one of the most popular or powerful teams in Europe, also, in official matches they had a tough road, as in the past qualifying rounds for Qatar 2022 they lost most of their matches and were not close to dreaming of a possible playoff. In their preparation duels for this Nations League, Montenegro lost a duel against Armenia and won by the minimum against Greece, so a complicated debut is expected for this team, but with certain hopes of qualifying as second in the group.
10:26 AMa month ago

In search of a new path

Finland's national team will be looking to set the bar high in this new edition of the UEFA Nations League. The Finnish team has been gradually raising its soccer level to the point of becoming a possible dark horse in the competition. In the European Championship they had an exceptional performance and showed that Finland is gradually raising its hand in Europe. Likewise, in the last Nations League they had a great performance in the group stage and it is expected that they will qualify again to the knockout rounds as in the last edition and continue with the dream of becoming champions in this summer break.
