Tournament debutants Finland can still make some ripples in UEFA Euro 2020 with a win over favourites and the world's top-ranked side, Belgium in their final Group B match tonight.
Finland started their campaign with a surprise win over Denmark, in a match marred by the Christian Eriksen collapse. But Markku Kanerva's men suffered a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Russia, who are also fighting for a place in the Round of 16. Finland need a win.
Belgium, having beaten both Russia and Denmark, are already assured of a place in the knock-outs. But the Romelu Lukaku-powered Red Devils will look for all three points against Finland. And Roberto Martinez has a lot of hungry players trying to prove their worth.
Head-to-head: Finland are surprisingly ahead in the head-to-head record, winning four in 11. Belgium won three and three have ended in draws.
