The Finland Euro 2020 odds were always going to be generous, having qualified for the European Championship or World Cup for the first time at the 33rd attempt.

Despite losing both matches to group winners Italy, they left Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina trailing in their wake to break the duck.

Teemu Pukki appears integral to their hopes this summer and the news that the striker has won his race for fitness is unquestionably a boost.

There were serious doubts when the 31-year-old damaged ankle ligaments while playing for Norwich but he featured in the final warm-up match.

With 30 goals in 91 international games, stretching back to 2009, the fact surgery was not needed was a major relief for boss Markku Kanerva, although fellow striker Joel Pohjanpalo finished the season strongly for Union Berlin to provide another option.
