Leeds United in Finland

Hi everyone

Just some information I need.

How many games have Leeds ever played in Finland?

I only have knowledge of one game so far:
Tervarit v Leeds 1999
Can anyone tell me the date, score and attendance please.
Surely they played 1 or 2 more games on this pre-season tour?
Any info much appreciated

Peter

This is the only time when Leeds have played in Finland.They had a couple of games in Sweden on the same tour in summer 1999.

Tervarit-Leeds 0-1.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink scored the only goal on the second half.
Both Gary Kelly and Harry Kewell missed penalties.

The match was  played in Oulu 17th July,1999.Attendance unknown.

I was there too  Smiley
A big friendly event. Not much police around. You could easily met the players...or just get an autographs when they went into bus.
I also have a matchday programme and a video from that match (from local tv coveridge).
