Can Ireland give their fans something to cheer about after their Euro 2020 qualification heartache?

Read on for your full guide to getting a Finland vs Ireland live stream in the Nations League – no matter where in the world you are.
Finland vs Ireland live stream
Today’s Nations League Group B4 clash between Finland vs Ireland kicks off at 7pm local time in Finland, which is 5pm IST/BST, and 12pm ET/9am PT in the US. Full streaming and Nations League TV channel details are below, plus you can take your preferred coverage with you wherever you are – just try ExpressVPN free for 30-days.
The Boys in Green are their own worst enemies at the moment, with poor finishing coming back to haunt them time and again. Stephen Kenny’s side should have beaten Slovakia in the playoffs last week, but were dumped out on penalties after a series of increasingly painful missed opportunities.
It was the same story against Wales in the Nations League at the weekend, with Robbie Brady and Shane Long squandering two very presentable chances as Ireland were forced to settle for a goalless draw in a match they dominated, despite five coronavirus-enforced player withdrawals, including four starters.
They could have no such complaints about their 1-0 defeat to Finland in September though, a game in which they were well below par and could easily have lost by more than the one goal, which was scored by super sub Fredrik Jensen seconds after his introduction.
Ireland are still winless in the Nations League and in real danger of relegation to Tier C. Finland, meanwhile, have their hopes set on promotion. They’re one point behind a Wales team that has failed to convince of late despite topping the group, and have some very useful weapons in attack in Robert Taylor and the aforementioned Jensen, both of whom scored against Bulgaria at the weekend, and of course Norwich’s Teemu Pukki.
