It hasn’t been too long, but the we’ve reached the concluding chapter of the group stages in our Nations Cup #6 story. Slovenia, Wales, Romania, Croatia, Ireland, Georgia, Estonia, Scotland, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Poland are just some of the names eliminated already, meaning a lot of the last round of fixtures are for pride and the very important top seed position in the group, which will give the winners the chance to face a 2nd seed team in the Round of 16.
In Group G, that is the situation as Austria and Spain have been despatched by both Netherlands and Finland respectively, leaving the Netherlands and the Suomi army to battle it out for top spot and a more favourable draw (in theory). Netherlands boast the experienced Soldier duo of kaptain and DamnEasy, leading their relatively inexperienced teammates in a battle against the might of Finland, with every member of the Finnish roster being a former or current Premiership level player, well except Cauthon, who’s 5 seasons of High will be dragging the team down no doubt! Not since Nations Cup #1 have these two nations met, where Finland won both maps, including a 12-0 victory on Granary! Netherlands have yet to get to the Last 8 of the tournament, whilst Finland won the first two Nations Cups, but since them have come up short, their best placement being a 3rd place finish.
Netherlands are expected to lose, but they may be able to pull off a surprise, like last Nations Cup #5 where Lithuania surprisingly beat the old school Finns and condemned them to the history books. The game will be streamed live tonight at 21:15 CEST by BlackOut TV, streamed by the legend Jon and casted by the ever present CeeJaey and moviemaker Beater, who will be out to spot some huge plays for his Nations Cup fragmovie.
