Norwich's Finland hero Teemu Pukki: I've never been so excited

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki admits he's thrilled to have helped Finland reach the 2020 European Championships.

Pukki scored twice in victory over Liechtenstein last night to reach the finals.

He told Viasat afterwards: "I've never been so excited about a contest like this. We've made history. The dream is from a young age to get to a final round, and now we are here."

Markku Kanerva, Finland's national coach, was also pleased.

"It was a mature performance today. The team played calmly and patiently with a lot of heart. It's a fantastic feat," he added.
