How good is Finland in football? The Eagle-owls have finally managed to squeeze through to a major tournament after coming close over the past two decades. They have a few players who are contracted to clubs in Europe’s top five leagues but majority of the team come from the more local European background.

Finland Euro 2020 Squad Key Players

Teemu Pukki

 

Pukki captured the attention of many with his heroics in the qualifier group stages. He also helped Norwich City gain promotion from the Championship to the Premier League, proving to be a lethal weapon in the top-flight. Even though the 29-year-old has seen a dip in form at club level, his finishing abilities still makes him standout as a dangerous player.

Lukáš Hrádecký

There is a reason why the Finnish number one was voted their best players for three years in a row (2016,2017 & 2018). He is a natural leader and next in line behind, Tim Sparv to wear the captain’s armband.
