In another chapter of the scintillating management career of Aapo Virtanen, the Finland national team manager has led his home nation to their first ever major international tournament.

After finishing 3rd in their EURO 2024 Qualifier group in 2023 to France and Bosnia & Herzegovina, Finland had to enter the EURO Qualfiers Playoffs to stand a chance of qualifying for the competition.

Firstly, Finland had to face the Republic of Ireland in the playoff semi-final. With Robin Lod giving Finland the opening goal in the 17th minute, Ireland managed to equalise in the second half as Millwall's left-winger Aiden O'Brien made it 1-1 on the 54th minute. With the two sides deadlocked as the full-time whistle blew, it took Finland until the second half of extra-time to take the lead for the second time as Saku Ylatupa converted a penalty in the 107th minute. Ireland were locked out of the game from there on in and Finland marched onto a playoff final.

Virtanen's Finnish side were drawn away from home in the EURO Playoff final as they came up against Turkey's international side. Turkey had previously qualified for seven major international tournaments before (2 World Cups, 5 EURO) compared to Finland's none. Turkey are 18 places ahead of Finland in the world rankings by FIFA, so the challenge was always going to be a tough one.

With Virtanen having a squad with a few players from his AC Oulu days involved, only Aleksi Niemi and Oliver Antman started the fixture against Turkey. It only took 24 minutes from the first whistle for Saku Ylatupa to score his first goal of the game, and another ten minutes before the former Helsinki and Ajax winger bagged his second goal of the game to make it 2-0 after 34 minutes gone.

Hoffenheim's €30million-rated midfielder Abdulkadir Omur started the second half with a bang as he ran straight through on goal after the whistle to pull a goal back for Turkey to make the score 2-1 on the 46 minute mark. Both teams were very edgy after Turkey's goal, with Finland cautiously treating Turkey's seemingly endless bombardment with a remedy of big clearances. After spending almost all the second half in Finland's half, Turkey were caught on the counter attack with Kaan Kairinen setting off Sion's Robin Lod with a long ball over the top, leading to Finland putting the game beyond all doubt with a third goal in the 88th minute to make it 3-1.

It was very obviously party time in Finland following the result as it is the first time that the Finnish people have ever experienced their national side qualify for a major international tournament, with Helsinki reportedly close to running out of alcohol supply on the night of qualification.

Following the incoming flow of final results, the EURO 2024 groups were announced by UEFA. After friendly fixtures to warm-up in June before the tournament against Czechia and Germany, Finland will play in Group D against Austria, Poland and World Cup holders Spain - all teams that stand higher in the world rankings than Aapo Virtanen's Finland side.

The so-called 'Group of Death' has been handed to Group B, which contains Bosnia & Herzegovina, England, France and Wales and will sure be one to watch as the competition begins, with England seeking to win their first ever European Championship trophy under Chris Wilder, who has been the manager since 2022 after their early World Cup exit in the group stages in Qatar.

With Aapo Virtanen fighting for an initially unexpected Champions League spot with his club team Fiorentina this season, leading his country into its first ever major international tournament will surely give him a morale boost leading into his clubs final run-in in Italy.

SonOfAnarchy: Thank you sir! It's been a marvellous couple of months for us at Fiorentina and the run-in will surely be exciting.
Justice: I can't comprehend the change that the new signings forced on the club's league standing, but it's been fantastic.
Scott: We only need an Inter slip-up and keep our own house in order and we can pull off the great escape and into the big competition!
TheLFCFan: A final big push for the lads!
Congratulations on such a fantastic achievement. It will be a summer to remember for the nation, regardless of the performance during the tournament. However, there is a window of opportunity in that group to progress - you never know what may happen at major tournaments after all. I have the belief in Aapo to pull it off!



ACF Fiorentina's painful 23-year wait for a trophy win is finally over within five months of Aapo Virtanen's leadership as La Viola beat Milan on penalties in the TIM Cup final.

Virtanen, with five league titles and three domestic cups to his name whilst managing AC Oulu in Finland has added his fourth career cup title to his cabinet, but his first piece of silverware as manager of Fiorentina - a position he has held since late December 2023.

Fiorentina have not won any silverware since the club's last TIM Cup victory all the way back in 2001 when the competitions final was played over two legs. Fiorentina defeated their opponents Parma with a 2-1 aggregate score with a highly-respected squad containing the likes of Francesco Toldo, Rui Costa and Enrico Chiesa. The club came close again in 2014 when Napoli defeated Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia Final with goals from Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens.

In an AC Milan dominated fixture, with Maurizio Sarri's side battling for the Serie A title with Juventus currently, the game ended goalless after full-time and extra-time. Despite having 22 shots on goals to Fiorentina's 12, Fiorentina comfortably dominated possession throughout the game as they had 61% of the ball throughout the entire 120 minutes of play.

The game went through to penalties as no side managed to break the deadlock in what was a very boring game to watch for the neutrals, the two sides went head-to-head in a penalty shootout. Milan went in looking to defend their TIM Cup title that they had won against Sassuolo the season before.

Fiorentina won the coin toss to take the penalties first as captains Emanuel Vignato and Mattia Caldara consulted the referee at the halfway line. Davide Merola - who has scored a highly impressive 15 goals in 16 Serie A as well as an additional two goals in the TIM Cup - was the first person to take Fiorentina's penalties. The €2.4M man from Milan's rivals, Inter calmly tucked away his first penalty.

The advantage was handed to Milan by the second penalty as Benfica loanee Pizzi missed his spot-kick as Alessio Romagnoli converted Milan's 2nd penalty following Odsonne Edouard's first penalty went in to make it 2-1 in Milan's favour.

Both third penalty takers scored their penalties, meanwhile young Rostislav Hora scored Fiorentina's fourth effort, leading up to Milan's Frenkie de Jong skying his opportunity to continue Milan's advantage. Instead, the shootout was tied at 3-3 by the time the fifth penalty came before sudden-death. Both Antonee Robinson of Fiorentina and Julian Draxler of Milan put away their spot-kicks, taking the shootout into sudden-death.

Mário Fernandes and Milan captain Mattia Caldara both finished their penalties with ease as the two defenders made the shootout 5-5 in total. However, it was the seventh penalty that led Fiorentina to the title. Fiorentina's extra-time substitution Jimmy Jans - on loan from KRC Genk - scored his penalty in sudden-death, meaning all the pressure was piled onto Jules Koundé of Milan. The French 25-year-old, signed from PSG for €26million last July aimed to go straight down the middle of the goal, but it was Virtanen's loyalty to his Oulu keeper Boskovic that paid off as the Serbian youngster read Koundé's path and parried away his attempt, leading to a consequential pile-on over at the corner flag in front of the Fiorentina fans.

News after the cup win reported that Fiorentina owner Andrea Della Valle was prepared to offer a new extended contract to Virtanen after taking Fiorentina from 13th into Champions League contention with two games remaining in the Serie A, as well as the club's first silverware in decades. Virtanen's current deal runs out at the end of next season, so it remains to be seen how much longer Virtanen will be looking to stay at Artemio Franchi. However, tonight is party-time for Fiorentina fans as Nikola Boskovic is hailed as the hero for his shot-stopping in the shootout this Wednesday evening.

Scott: I'm delighted that I had the opportunity to take Finland to a landmark tournament so early into my tenure as the manager of the national side. The group will be tough - especially up against the world champions Spain and two other sides higher in the rankings with arguably much better rated squads. To get through would be a miracle, but miracles certainly haven't been in short supply with Aapo!
Congratulations on yet more success!


"Hello and welcome to beIN Sports coverage of the final day of the Serie A season. There is tonnes of drama to come, with a title race being at the forefront of everyone's minds, there is a battle for the top four Champions League spots between Napoli - who played their final match yesterday - as well as Fiorentina and Internazionale, who both play at 18:30 today. Sassuolo are also mathematically included in this race, but it would take a miracle of results for the club to achieve a top-four finish today.

Later on, we will reach the conclusion of the Serie A title race between current league leaders Juventus, who will take on Torino away today and Milan, who face Cagliari at the San Siro which both kick-off at 20:30.



Today, we will be broadcasting from Stadio di Bergamo in the fixture between Atalanta and Fiorentina. Atalanta staved off relegation in their last fixture with Frosinone, Verona and Genoa all being confirmed as the relegated teams playing in Serie B next season. Fiorentina enter this fixture sat in 4th place and level on points with their main Champions League qualification rivals Internazionale, ahead on the basis that Fiorentina beat Inter on both occasions in Serie A this season.

Fiorentina have been on sparkling form since the arrival of their new manager Aapo Virtanen from Finnish champions AC Oulu in late December. La Viola have not lost a single match in any competition since he joined. Virtanen brought in ten new players in January, selling seven permanently in the process of the transfer window.

Davide Merola has been on unbelievable form this season since joining from Inter for €2.4million. He has scored 15 goals in 19 Serie A games and he could be the key in denying his former club top-tier European football for the 2024/25 season should he score a winner today.

Nikola Boskovic was also brought in by Virtanen from his old club AC Oulu and he has kept former number one Koen Casteels out of the team with eight clean sheets in nineteen games, with only eleven goals conceded since his arrival in Florence.

With the three live fixtures just about to get underway, we head to our commentary team over at Stadio di Bergamo as Fiorentina look to hold their 4th spot in Serie A.


Ray Hudson: Yes, thank you. Welcome to Atalanta's home stadium Stadio di Bergamo. Virtanen starts with Nikola Boskovic in goal with a defence of Mario Fernandes, Tony Moller, Amadeu Neves and Antonee Robinson - a defence made up of three loanees set to expire this summer. Tom Mrmic and Rostislav Hora will play centrally behind Hakim Ziyech in attacking midfield and both Emanuel Vignato and Yannick Carrasco on the wings. Davide Merola takes up his usual place as the lone striker in Virtanen's system.

18:30 - Kick Off


1': Davide Merola gets us underway here at Stadio di Bergamo.

9': After a strong start from Fiorentina here, they have their first corner of the game. Yannick Carrasco is set to swing this in towards the keeper here. Atalanta have nodded the ball away and it's now with Ziyech on the edge of the box, but he's in no shooting position. Carrasco has it back out wide, Mrmic is running back to offer a deeper option for the Belgian. Mrmic skips past an Atalanta midfielder before playing in Merola with his back to goal. He's slipped it through to Vignato! He's hit the post and it's out for a goal kick!

22': Sassuolo have taken the lead through Cutrone against bottom of the league Genoa. They now stand one point behind both Inter and Fiorentina on 72 points.

Genoa 0 - 1 Sassuolo

30': Huge news coming in from Frosinone right now, as the already relegated Frosinone have taken the lead against Inter! Sergio Diaz has got the goal for the 18th placed side, which could prove to be hugely important for Fiorentina. Inter drop down into 6th place, with Sassuolo taking the place of 5th now.

Frosinone 1 - 0 Internazionale

34': Capriotti has equalised for Genoa against Sassuolo, meaning it's 1-1 over there and Sassuolo move back into 6th place, Inter return to 5th despite being a goal down to Frosinone.

Genoa 1 - 1 Sassuolo

45+1': It's not been an inspiring first-half performance from either side given what is at stake for Fiorentina as a result of this fixture. The referee calls for half-time.

46': Andrea Petagna kicks us off for the second half of this tie.

58': Carrasco looks set to whip this free-kick into the box as he stands on the left side of the field, about 40 yards away from goal. It's dipped in towards the back post where the ball is looping now... Vignato is there at the back post! Dragged back into play by the Atalanta goalkeeper! Did that go in? It certainly looked dubious when Vignato headed it towards goal. The referee looks down to his wrist... No goal! The ball did not cross the line according to the referees goal-line technology! Great stop by Morandi.

63': Verdi whips an outswinging corner into the box for Atalanta. Bettella looks like he's going to meet it! Just wide by the Atalanta man! That was a matter of inches before Fiorentina's place would have been thrown into serious doubt!

85': The nerves are now creeping in here at Stadio di Bergamo and rightly so. Stefan de Vrij has equalised for Inter, meaning that Inter are now level on points with Fiorentina and potentially only one goal away from achieving Champions League football. This could get interesting in the last five minutes.

Frosinone 1 - 1 Internazionale

90+5': It's almost over here at Atalanta now. Mário Fernandes has a throw in deep in the Atalanta half, they're really not sure if they want to be wasting time or not! Vignato plays it back to the thrower Fernandes... Full-time over here in Bergamo. It's a goalless draw between Atalanta and Fiorentina. It's still 1-1 over in Frosinone meaning that as it stands, Fiorentina are heading into the Champions League next season and Inter will be in the Europa League... And that's it! The Fiorentina fans can celebrate! They will be playing Champions League football next season as Inter have drawn with the already relegated Frosinone! It's been a marvellous five months for Aapo Virtanen at Fiorentina, with the Coppa Italia to his name already and now Fiorentina will be playing Champions League football!

FULL-TIME
Atalanta 0 - 0 Fiorentina
Frosinone 1 - 1 Internazionale
Genoa 1 - 1 Sassuolo

20:30 - Kick Off


1': With the Champions League and Europa League placements all finalised, it is now time for the title race to come to its conclusion. Juventus currently top the league by two points ahead of 2nd place Milan who sit on 82 points. We are at San Siro to cover the Milan v Cagliari game, meanwhile Juventus face their fierce local Turin rivals Torino at Olimpico Grande Turin.

4': It's a huge bonus for Milan fans here and the San Siro has just got ten times louder as it is slowly seeping through the stadium that Juventus have conceded a fourth minute goal to Torino in the Mole Derby! English right-winger Patrick Roberts has got Torino off to a superb start with a quick breakaway from the former Man City player. A huge spanner in the works for Juventus who thought the title was only a goal away! Still a long way to go in this one, but what a twist already!

Torino 1 - 0 Juventus

15': The San Siro is still absolutely rocking after that goal from Patrick Roberts over in Turin. Kessie is using the reverberating atmosphere here to his advantage as he drives forward with the ball. It's played into Pagani who has come central from his wing play. Pagani has it on his left foot on the edge of the box here... He's hit one! GOAL! Pagani has put Milan ahead against Cagliari and in doing so has sent Milan to the top of Serie A! Could this really be Milan's dream day?!

Milan 1 - 0 Cagliari

30': Milan have a free-kick just to the side of the Cagliari box. The goalscorer Pagani is going across to take the free-kick. He's still buzzing from his incredibly important introduction earlier on. He's lining it up to send a cross into the area. It's dinked into the near post... Romagnoli is queuing up there!!! It's two for Milan!!! Alessio Romagnoli has glanced in a terrific header from a very cheeky cross by Pagani! 2-0 Milan and they strengthen their spot at the top of Serie A!

Milan 2 - 0 Cagliari

70': It's Pagani again with a free-kick in a similar position to his assist for Romagnoli earlier in the game. He sends an inswinger into the area, but it's to the back post this time around. Scott McTominay has headed it defensively away, but it's looping in the air and will remain in the area. Caldara has got it under control in the box, he's taken a touch out and McTominay is looking to block his path but he's hit it! GOAAAAL!!! The Milan captain has powered it into the net like a thunderbolt! An incredibly powerful shot by the defender and it's 3-0 Milan at the San Siro!

Milan 3 - 0 Cagliari

90+3': We've taken up all of the added time here at the San Siro and the referee has blown the final whistle. There has been loud celebrations for the 3-0 victory over Cagliari. Milan's players have done all they can and now the stadium turns to nervousness as they await the next three minutes that remain in added time over in Turin. Right now they are top, but a goal from Juventus could change everything, with Juventus leading Milan on the results between teams sorting rule.

90+6': Juventus have time for one last attack here against their fierce local rivals. Cristiano Ronaldo, who retires at the end of this season at the age of 39 after a glittering career as one of the best footballers of all-time is screaming at his teammates to give him the ball, for one last piece of magic from the Portuguese legend. Alex Sandro has lumped the ball up to Ronaldo, who is playing up top with Dybala, but at this point the entirety of the Juventus side is up there. Sandro's ball has flown just over Ronaldo's head - and that is celebrated like a last-minute winner over at the San Siro, which is technically is. All eyes are on the referee Mazzoleni now. The ball is out for a goal-kick and the added time is all up. The goalkeeper Cucchietti is taking all the time he wants to retrieve the ball. The ballboys are told not to move at all. Cucchietti finally takes the goal-kick...

And that's it!!! The Juventus players collapse to the floor in shock and disappointment! The Torino fans are mocking their city rivals travelling fans. Milan have won the 2023/24 Serie A after Napoli stole it away from Juventus just last season! Look at Cristiano Ronaldo there. He knows that this was his last football game ever. His winning mentality wanted this title more than anything, but Torino have stolen his final great moment away from him. Milan celebrate their first title since Massimiliano Allegri's 2010/11 success, just before Juventus started their decade-long dominance. This is Milan's revenge, and they are partying in the San Siro and will be for weeks to come. What a day.

FULL-TIME
Milan 3 - 0 Cagliari
Torino 1 - 0 Juventus



Scott: Feels good :P
A dramatic last day that has seen Milan capture the Serie A title once again, but most importantly, marks Champions League football for Fiorentina and Aapo next season. Fantastic stuff!
Champions league football! Incredible achievement considering where they were when you first joined! Congrats!
Finland getting to the Euros, winning the Coppa Italia and then getting into the Champions League considering where you started off with them is an incredible achievement. Hopefully you can take on the Viola to further glory and unearth the next Batigol ;)
I actually have a hatred for Fiorentina, sorry Jack haha I hope you go downhill ;)



After a stunning 2023/24 season, the big European clubs are all scrapping to persuade Fiorentina's star winger Emanuel Vignato to sign for their club.

Despite playing for the club for three seasons so far after joining Fiorentina for €6million from Chievo Verona in 2021, the Italian winger had his best season to date in the Serie A last term as the 23-year-old bagged 18 goals and assisted 12 times in 34 games under both Andrea Mandorlini and Aapo Virtanen.

He finished as Serie A's 2nd top scorer last season, with Juventus' Paulo Dybala taking home the award down to the fact that the Argentinian had played less minutes than Vignato. Alongside this achievement, he finished as Serie A's Midfielder of the Year as well as Fiorentina's club Player of the Year.

Off the back of such a successful season with La Viola as Vignato and Virtanen led Fiorentina into the Champions League for the first time since 2015, major clubs have been sniffing around the prospect of purchasing the winger, who is valued at €45million by his club.

Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, PSG and Real Madrid have all been rumoured to be hovering around the player and one bid could unsettle Vignato into wanting a move away from Florence. A bidding war could also see his valuation sky-rocket with so many high-profile suitors linked to Vignato.

Despite his marvellous performances last season and the names of clubs looking at buying him, Vignato has still yet to make an Italy cap and doesn't look to be in favour for Luciano Spalletti's EURO 2024 side this summer.

Both ACF Fiorentina and the player's representatives have declined to comment on the rising amount of rumours around a potential departure for one of Serie A's best players.

Scott: Absolutely delighted to see a champion other than Juventus in Serie A for the second season running now in what could potentially be the opening up of new contenders in this division for years to come.
TheLFCFan: We did it! Such hard work has rewarded us with great prospects for next season.
SonOfAnarchy: It's been an absolutely incredible few months for me as manager of both Fiorentina and Finland in achieving the highest finish in almost a decade for Fiorentina and achieving Finland's first ever major international tournament appearance!
Griffo: I'm just gonna pretend you never said that ;)
It's no surprise to see such elite clubs interested in someone of Vignato's quality. He has plenty of time to improve at just the age of 23, also, which will only increase their interests. You will have a real battle on your hands to keep him at the club - although could keeping him serve more harm than good?



After a draw and a loss to Poland and Spain respectively, Finland have stunned the world in their first ever major international tournament as they reach the 2nd Round of EURO 2024.

Aapo Virtanen led Finland into the competition with an afternoon fixture against Poland on 17th June as they drew 1-1 at the Red Bull Arena in Germany. Spain had defeated Austria the day before 3-1 and led the group as a result.

Joel Pohjanpalo gave Finland the lead in the second half against Poland, but his goal was met with an equaliser in the final ten minutes as Lukasz Michalski bagged for Poland, making Finland and Poland level going into the second round of fixtures.

In a new formation devised by Aapo Virtanen to keep a relatively low-quality Finland team in the game against much more talented opposition like Spain, the Scandinavians kept their nerve almost all game as they kept the reigning world champions at bay right up until Virtanen's former colleague Noah Nurmi gave away a penalty in the 87th minute, which Marco Asensio dutifully put past Lukás Hradecky.

With Austria defeating Poland in the other game in Group D that day, Finnish fans had seemingly given into defeat by the time of the third fixture against Austria - who only needed a draw to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition with Spain already qualified with two wins out of two.

A relatively easy task to achieve a point against Finland in their first ever major tournament was scuppered when one of Aapo Virtanen's most loyal players at his time in Oulu scored a goal in the 24th minute with Antti Huhtamaki curling a goal into the bottom corner from 20 yards out. Following this, what was an originally very attacking style from Finland to try get a goal became a similar structure to their approach to the Spain game from the outset.

As time ticked on and Austria kept pounding the Finnish defence with Virtanen squatted down on the touchline, hoping that his defence would hold out, Finland knew that if the score remained the same they would be heading to the knockout stages as Poland were a goal down to Spain within 3 minutes in the other fixture at the same time.

With four minutes added time, Finland fans in the Volksparkstadion and back home watching on television were eagerly anticipating the final whistle from the referee so they could begin their celebrations of defeating the odds of qualifying further. With a misplaced pass by Marko Arnautovic landing at the feet of Maximus Tainio in the Finnish defence on 94:23, the NYCFC defender launched the ball as far as he could away from Lukás Hradecky's goal. The clearance called for the end of Austria's final attack and the final whistle. With a quick shake of Franco Foda's hand, Virtanen sprinted onto the pitch along with his staff members and substitutes to join the pile-on initiated by the players out on the pitch as they all crammed on top of Maximus Tainio who was the last player to touch the ball to secure Finland's second round qualification.

Austria later joined Finland in qualifying as they were within the top four out of the 3rd placed teams during the group stage but if Finland hadn't won that game they would not have had the same luxury as Austria as they would have had less points in comparison to other 3rd placed teams.

In the second round of EURO 2024, Finland have had a relatively kind draw as they face Czechia who finished 2nd ahead of Russia and Slovakia in their group. Spain has to go face Romania meanwhile Austria are drawn against Croatia.

Scott: He has been absolutely fascinating to watch, especially with me not knowing much about him before I arrived at the club! The clubs who are interested are far bigger, but maybe more money on his wage here or even the Champions League qualification can keep him?



All it took was two penalties scored by Joel Pohjanpalo to take Finland through to the quarter-finals of the 2024 European Championships as they defeated Czechia 2-1 in the second round.

In a new formation formulated by manager Aapo Virtanen, the 35-year-old boss set his team to play in a 5-1-3-1 setup with five defenders, a defensive midfielder behind a bank of three central midfielders with one striker up-front.

We saw this formation played out in the entirety of the Spain match in Group D where Finland were let down by an 87th minute penalty scored by Marco Asensio and once again in the Austria win where Finland had to fight to defend their lead to send them to the EURO 2nd round.

The new system saw Virtanen's side keep 58% possession throughout the match as a lot of the play was passing around the back five.

With a few corners to get the game into its starting gears for both sides, it was just before half-time when the first major incident happened. From a corner, the ball was headed back out by the Czechia defence landing at Huhtamaki's feet before passing the ball out to left-back Uronen. As the ball was whipped in from the left, Noah Nurmi was brought down in the box by Schick. The referee pointed to the spot and it was down to Sheffield United's Joel Pohjanpalo to tidily put the spot-kick away.

After a quiet first 25 minutes in the second half, the game was plundered into uncertainty once again as Robin Lod lost the ball in the Czechia half which gave way to a Czechia counter-attack down the left hand side. Krejci fizzed in a cross through the Finland danger area, and as the ball missed the flailing feet of Noah Nurmi, Vaclav Kadlec was on hand for his team with a first-time finish to put the game level in the 72nd minute.

As Finland once again went on the search for a goal to put them back ahead, it was in the 80th minute when their wishes came true. With Antti Huhtamaki floating in a cross from a corner, Brabec tripped over Pohjanpalo in the box and the referee Irratti pointed to the spot followed up by Pohjanpalo converting the penalty into a goal.

With four minutes added on, Finland fans were elated as the referee called time as their team kept the ball from Czechia who were hurriedly trying to get a goal as soon as possible.

The victory in the second round means they will play at Olympiastadion Berlin against Croatia in what could become yet another shocking win for Finland if Virtanen gets it right once more.
