Finland claim shock 1-0 win over Denmark in Euro 2020

Finland Euro 2020

A massive win for Finland in their first ever EURO 2020 match. Denmark had the possession and created many more chances. The stubborn and well-organised defending with Hradecky as the top man was enough for the Finns to get a surprise result.

A disappointing result for Denmark in their opening game of the finals. They had a lot of the ball throughout but were beaten by a goal against the run of play on a difficult evening.
