Norwich striker Teemu Pukki: Exciting to have Finland close to Euros

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki is delighted Finland's Euros qualifying hopes remain alive.

Finland took a big step towards the European Championship on Tuesday night, beating Armenia 3-0 - thanks in part to two goals from Pukki.

Next Finland will be at home against Liechtenstein.

"We wanted to show that what we delivered in Bosnia was not our true level. I don't think anyone was particularly stressed or panicked. The whole team was ready," said Pukki.

"We have two incredibly big matches ahead of us. There is nothing better than playing for such big things as a European Championship for Finland. It is exciting."
