Some special guests from Finland were at the match against Bremen last Friday, with all eyes on Lukas Hradecky.

Turku Calling

A group of groundhoppers travelled from Finland to Frankfurt last weekend, some of them friends of our number 1 goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky, some of them fans of his former club TPS Turku. "Lucky Luke" is still very popular in Turku and Finland - he is also the national side's number one - which does not come as a surprise as he likewise took the hearts of Eintracht fans by storm. He keeps in touch with his old club and his down-to-earth attitude is well achieved.

Lucky Charms

One of them announced on Twitter that if noone else scores for the Eagles then Hradecky will do so. Luckily the recent goal drought came to an end against Bremen (final score 2-2), it seems the 20 Finns had produced a good karma for us. On Saturday evening Lukas "The Spider" Hradecky took them for dinner, and after the game he confirmed with EintrachtTV that he is very happy to have such a great following from his home country.

Many thanks for your great support, guys - we hope to see you at a match soon!
