AAPO HALME CALLED UP BY FINLAND

25 May 2021

Reds defender in Huuhkaji squad for EURO 2020 training camp.

Our 23-year-old centre back who joined the Reds in the summer of 2019 has today linked up with Finland at their training camp in Suomi ahead of two pre-EURO 2020 friendlies.

Captain of their U21 side for some time now, this is Halme's first invite to the full national team. 

The Owls take on Sweden this Saturday in Solna before returning home and to Helsinki for a final warm-up fixture with Estonia, before the Championships get underway on June 11.

Finland are making their first ever appearance in an international tournament, having qualified for EURO 2020 as runners-up in their group that was won by Italy. 

Led by Markku Kanerva, Huuhkaji are in Group B of the tournament, alongside Denmark, Belgium and Russia. 

Good luck to Aapo this summer!
