Pukki stars as Finland qualifies for 1st-ever major tournament

There will be an unfamiliar face at next summer’s European Championship.

Finland is off to its first-ever major tournament after beating Liechtenstein 3-0 on Friday in Helsinki courtesy of Jasse Tuominenin’s opener and a brace from Norwich City star Teemu Pukki.

The victory was enough to see the Scandinavian footballing minnow secure second spot in Group J. Italy already guaranteed its progression from the six-team company after winning all eight of its qualifiers to date.

More to come.
