Nikke Veikkanen

You as a player:  I am a former Finnish youth national player whilst also playing for PEPO Lappeenranta in the Finnish Kakkonen (second division). I am an attacking player that can play striker, number 10 position but feel most effective in wide areas. My strengths are in 1v1 situations, committing defenders with my dribbling abilities and contribute directly to the game through key passes and assists. Defensively i work very hard to support my full back and bring energy to the midfield.

My youth career consisted of playing for a small local finnish club, whilst also being involved in the national Finish youth system. At 14 i was recruited to play for the biggest club in my region, Pepo Lappeenranta where i have played ever since. At 17 i impressed my coaches so much I earn a semi professional contract with Pepo and have played a major role within the first team ever since. 

Through playing mens football this has forced me to develop physically and continue to work on this part of my game. I work closely with my Pepo coaches on developing my speed and strength so that i can continue to become more effective in games.
