As far as national traumas go this probably rank #3 all-time and #1 currently.
#1 was never winning a medal in the icehockey WC. This was fixed in 1992 (although we won Olympic silver in 1988) and the big one in 1995 with gold.
#2 Was not winning the Eurovision song contest. This was sorted by Lordi in 2007.
#3 is the fact Finland has never played in any football world or european cups. A win tomorrow would fix that.
Nice write-up in the Guardian. Will my adopted home country finally qualify for a tournament. Seems small, but it would mean a lot.
