Finland looking for more stability in home games against Canada
Every weekend so far, Finland have played better in their second match, taking eight of nine points from those games.
“We have been talking about this thing lately more and more,” Sammelvuo said. “We are trying to solve this along with the many other things that come up during this great experience of the World League.”
Finland will have some experienced players back on their roster, including captain Antti Siltala, setter Mikko Esko and opposite Urpo Sivula. The only remaining absentee among their more experienced players is injured middle-blocker Matti Oivanen.
Finland and Canada met twice in Calgary, where the home team won 3-0 and 3-2.
Canada will be without Gord Perrin and Dustin Schneider for the matches in Tampere.
Finland are 3-5 and are in third place on nine points. Canada (5-3) have 14 points and are three points behind top-team Belgium.
Finland and Canada will meet Friday and Saturday at Hakametsä Ice Hall.
