Finland Head Coach Anna Signeul has praised the Stadium MK atmosphere after side’s opening match at the UEFA Women’s EUROS.
The Fins began their tournament on Friday evening with a fixture against Spain – a game that was played out in front of a crowd of 16,819 which, at the time, was a record for the biggest crowd in a UEFA Women's EURO group-stage match not involving a host nation.
Signuel’s side play two more games at the home of MK Dons, including an important clash with Denmark on Tuesday, but reflecting on Friday’s atmosphere in her post-match press conference, Signuel said: “It was a fantastic atmosphere and the players were on the verge of crying when they saw all the fans - it was amazing.
“It is amazing that there are so many football fans that come, even if they aren't Spanish or Finnish - just a fan of women's football. It was a great atmosphere.”
Signuel added: “It is going to be a fantastic event and we are so proud to be a part of it.”
Tickets for all three remaining UEFA Women’s EURO matches taking place at Stadium MK are still available to buy.
