    I’m Katriina Talaslahti, a Finnish professional football goalkeeper playing for Olympique Lyonnais Féminine.

    2019 - The first half

    Winning the title of Women's 2. Bundesliga and representing Finland WU19 National Team.


    Already during the fall season, I was the first goalkeeper in FC Bayern’s 2. team.

    Overall, my team's season has gone really well - we won the 2. Bundesliga championship in May!

    In June I'll be off to a well-deserved summer vacation in Finland!


    In April I attended the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship Qualification tournament in Belgium with the Finnish WU19 National Team. Unfortunately, in the last minute, we dropped out of the UEFA WU19 final tournament. Representing Finland at the junior level is now over.


    More statistics about my season you can find here.


    New challenges in U19.


    I started the fall 2018 season by playing very successfully with FC Bayern Women's 1st Team in France against PSG (The Toulouse International Ladies Cup 2018).


    In November I got invited for the first time to the WU19 Finnish national team training camp.

    German Championship with U17 team.


    The season 2016-2017 we had a wonderful U17 team in FC Bayern. Already during the previous season we learned to know each other very well.
    And when we got some good new players, our playing was at an excellent level.
    So, we first won the U17 southern group and finally the U17 German Championship in June!

    These team mates are still my dear friends.


    Follow up my highlights of this season in Finnish in this article from YLE, Keskisuomalainen or Suomifutis.

    In summer we attended Scania Women's Cup U19 in Le Mans in France and I played in final against FC Barcelona.


    This summer I also made time to promote my native Finland by participating in a book highlighting the Finnish sauna culture by Carita Harju 'Sauna from Finland'.

    Filming was done in the middle of the wonderful Finnish summer.


    We also had the honor to visit the Finnish Embassy in Berlin end of the year.
