Hamalainen's Finland U21 side draw with Georgia

NIKO Hamalainen helped Finland’s Under-21 side record a 2-2 draw with Georgia on Friday afternoon.

The QPR left-back played 90 minutes at the Mikheil Meskhi Stadioni as the Finnish side secured a point in their Group 3 UEFA 2019 European Under-21 qualifier.

Finland took the lead after just nine minutes through Kaan Kairinen before the hosts equalised before the hour mark courtesy of Giorgi Beridze.

Kairinen then handed Finland the lead with seven minutes remaining, with his second of the match, before Roman Tchanturia equalised for Georgia four minutes from time.

A point sees Finland in fourth position in their group as they bid to qualify for the finals in Italy and San Marino.
