9# Sami Eskonniemi
Anonymous peer review: "The curly-haired pin-up boy Sami Eskonniemi is certainly not all about cute looks and astonishing dribbles with the ball. 'Eskis' is also known for his idiosyncratic obsession with the color green, and, most importantly, his fierce right foot shots are always potential game-winners."
Date of birth: 26.10.1986.
Status: A player.
Clubs: KaDy (2008- ), Nakkilan Nasta.
Major subject: Degree Programme in Nursing (Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences).
Strengths as a futsal player? "Technique, shooting with both legs."
Interests outside futsal court? "Movies, shopping, food."
Jaakko Kinnunen asked you a question: "Sami ‘Eskis’ Eskonniemi, you are widely known for your green shorts and technique on the futsal court. I would like to know, why you don`t play football during the summer like most of the Kady-players?” "I'm yet to find a team with a green uniform in Jyväskylä; if anyone has heard of such a team, please let me know."
What have you always wanted to know about Jussi Kaihlajärvi or Kimmo Tolvanen but have been too afraid to ask him? "This one's for 'Kimble' Tolvanen: The first time we met in futsal training you punched me in the face. Your left hook seemed to be in top form. Did you do a lot of boxing or any other similar sport before you ended up playing futsal?"
