Brentford striker Marcuss Forss scored on his international debut last night as he helped Finland beat current World Cup holders France. Marcus started for his country in Paris last night and put Finland in front in the international friendly. Onni Valakari added a second goal soon after and Finland's 2-0 half time lead became a victory at the end of the contest. Marcus' goal can be seen below.

Marcus is with Finland for two more games in the coming week, his first time with the full national squad. They travel to Sofia to play Bulgaria on Sunday, 15 November, before a match against Wales on Wednesday, 18 November in the UEFA Nations League. Finland in League B Group Four and have won three of their four games so far, beating Republic of Ireland home and away and Bulgaria but losing to Wales. If they win both games they will be promoted to League A.

Marcus, 21, was part of the Finland Under-21 squad for games in October for the first time in a year. He scored in one of his two appearances last month and has two goals in five caps at that level with 11 goals in 21 international matches across the age groups. He also has six goals for Brentford this season, four in the Sky Bet Championship.
