Win Against Finland Too Little Too Late for Greece (video)



Despite having already been eliminated from the finals of Euro 2020, Greece produced another impressive performance winning 2-1 against Finland on Monday at the Athens’ Olympic Stadium.

Teemu Pukki scored his 10th goal in eight qualifiers after 27 minutes to put Finland, who have already qualified for the finals, ahead against the run of play, only for Petros Mantalos to pounce a minute into the second half to equalize.

Kostas Galanopoulos then rammed the ball home from close range for his first international goal after substitute Efthymios Koulouris had been thwarted by Finnish goalkeeper Jesse Joronen.

The national team missed more chances to score again, raising hopes that John van ‘t Schip’s new-look side will achieve better things in the future.
