Marcus Forss starts Finland's final friendly before Euro 2020

Friday's senior international action

5 June 2021

Marcus Forss earned his fifth cap for Finland on Friday night as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Estonia in Helsinki.

The Bees striker partnered Joel Pohjanpalo up front for the opening 45 minutes at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium as The Finns played their final Warm Up game ahead of Euro 2020. 

It wouldn't be a winning end to preparations though as Rauno Sappinen struck from the spot for the visitors on the hour. 

Attention now turns to Finland's opening game against Christian Norgaard, Mathias Jensen, and Denmark in Copenhagen next Saturday. 

Also in action on Friday night were Iceland although Patrik Gunnarsson wasn't involved in their 1-0 friendly win over Faroe Islands in Torshavn. After a goalless opening, FC Midtjylland midfielder Mikael Anderson struck the only goal with 20 minutes to play. 

Iceland haven't qualified for this summer's European Championship and play their final game of the month against Poland on Tuesday at the Stadion Miejski Poznan.
