Azerbaijan, Lankaran, Sept. 3 / Trend , P.Aliyeva/
An Azerbaijani national football team defender believes that his team will triumph over the Finnish team in the match at the qualifying stage for the World Championship in 2010.
"Azerbaijan's squad plays well against Finland. The teams have met several times, and the Azerbaijani team has even beaten the Finns," Azerbaijani defender, Sasha Yunisoglu, told Trend on Sept. 3 after a training session held at the Lankaran city stadium.
The Finnish national squad, which will meet the Azerbaijani team at the Lankaran city stadium on Sept. 5 as part of the qualifying stage of the World Cup 2010, will arrive in Baku tomorrow. At present, Azerbaijan's national team has scored one point in its group of the qualifying round.
Yunisoglu said that Azerbaijan's national team will play for victory. Captain Rashad Sadigov's absence in this match will make it difficult, but the other footballers will try to play well in his position, said the defender.
