Sparv: Norwich striker Pukki will give Finland Euros x-factor

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki is being backed for a big 2020 Euros next summer by Finland teammate Tim Sparv.

The FC Midtjylland midfielder believes Pukki won't look out of place amongst Europe's best.

The Finland captain told Bold: "Teemu has been delivering at a high level constantly for three to four years. We have a team that works insanely well together defensively and is very disciplined, and then we have Pukki who gives us some x-factor.

"He is an attacker who almost scores from all the chances we come up with, and he has a big part in us going to the European Championships.

"He will make it difficult for our opponents this summer, and he can also hurt Denmark, although they probably know him better than most."

Finland and the Danes will share the same Euros group as Belgium and Russia.
