Club career[edit]

He began his career with local club GÍ Gøta. After GÍ Gøta and Leirvík ÍF merged in 2008, he played for the newly formed club Víkingur. He scored 19 goals in the 2009 season, making him the league top goalscorer.[2] During the 2010 season he scored 7 league goals and 3 in the Faroese Cup. In 2011, he was top scorer again, with 21 goals.[3] Having previously been on trials with Swedish Allsvenskan clubs Örebro SK and Trelleborgs FF, Finnur trialed with Superettan club Jönköpings Södra IF in late 2011. After impressing on trial he signed a permanent deal with the club in early 2012.[4] In 2013, he returned to Víkingur ahead of the 2013 season.

On 9 October 2015, Justinussen joined Danish 2nd Division-side Fremad Amager.[5]

After the end of the 2016/2017 season, Fremad Amager agreed to send Finnur Justinussen out on loan to the ambitious club in Copenhagen, Solbakken GC. So far, he has played 5 matches for Solbakken Gentlemans Club in Copenhagen, scoring 15 goals, the second most scoring player for the club, trailing only the man, the myth, the legend Einar Kerá, who so far has netted 122 goals in only 4 matches.

Finnur is currently on a loan in Næver BK. Latest news is, that 2nd division defenders has sleepless nights because of him. After the first training, finnur scored 20 goals.

He made 8 appearances in total for the U21 team, of which he played in they won two matches, two draws, and four defeats, which were all qualifying matches for the 2011 Under-21 tournament. Justinussen was involved in the wins against Latvia and Andorra, but didn't feature in the 1-0 win over Russia.

He was called up to the Faroe Islands national team for the first time in September 2011, for the matches against Italy and Serbia. He was left out the matchday squad for the game against Italy, but was an unused substitute in the match verses Serbia.[6] He made his debut for the team in August 2012 as a substitute, in a 2-0 loss to Iceland in Reykavik.[7]
