Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been given to Nuorela as a gift from the Finnish FA (SPL) for playing in the match in which they commemorated their 90th anniversary. This match was a 1998 World Cup Qualification Group 3 game against Norway played at Olympiastadion, Helsinki on the 20th August 1997. The shirts that the players wore in the match did not feature this special match detail though and front numbers were also present. There was little to celebrate by full-time though as Norway spoilt the party with a 4-0 thrashing with Solbakken, Rudi and both Jostein and Tore-Andre Flo all on the scoresheet. Nuorela played the full match and was a member of the squad for 9 years between 1994-03 but made only 20 appearances
