Pukki for Finland

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Finland’s game v Bosnia and Herzegovina will be available to watch free to air today please?

I'm more interested to find out if Pukki is allowed to play in the custom-made anti-injury zorbing suit we've had made for him.

Nice mention here on BBC:

 

'Shortly after concluding a discussion on combating climate change, Finland prime minister Antti Rinne got up from his seat at the stately Elysee Palace in Paris, shook the hand of France president Emmanuel Macron and then presented him with a gift.

It was a Teemu Pukki football shirt.

Such is the in-form Norwich and Finland striker's reputation at the moment that his name even makes it onto the agenda of top-level political meetings, alongside environmental issues and trade deals.

With 44 goals in 66 games for club and country since joining the Canaries in the summer of 2018, Pukki is one of the most prolific players in world football at the moment.

But it wasn't always that way for a player once described as "not a complete disaster" following a less-than-impressive stint at Celtic.

As Pukki looks to make it six goals in seven games for Finland when they face Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday (17:00 BST) and move them a step closer to qualifying for their first major tournament, BBC Sport charts the fall and rise of Norwich's talismanic striker.'

You’re welcome, just need Pukki to come through these next couple of games injury free, and hopefully with a goal or two - will definitely be watching later also 👍🏼

Pukki limping off with 7 minutes to go was worrying though. Really hope it's not serious but he looked pretty uncomfortable and couldn't put any weight on his leg. An injury to Pukki would be season over in my book so fingers crossed it's just a knock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just kidding - unscathed as far as Im aware.

It wasn't Finland's day.  I'm rooting for Finland to qualify for the Euros for many reasons. A: I don't think they  ever did, it would be great to watch Pukki at that level.  B: If they qualify from their group, they won't need to play extra playoff matches, so Pukki won't need to leave for more international games  C;  If they qualify from their group, Hungary steps up one place in the playoff rankings...

Two home games coming up: v Armenia on Weds 15 October then Lichtenstein on 15 November which should see them over the line. Final game is away in Greece on 18 November. It would be good to have it settled before them so hopefully they can try out other formations. Armenia dropped points last night so beating them could take them out of it.
