Marcus Forss in Finland squad for Euro 2020 Training Camp

Bees striker in 26-man squad named today

19 May 2021

Marcus Forss has been included in the 26-man Finland squad for a Training Camp ahead of this summer's European Championships.

The Finns will meet up next Monday, 24 May, with Marcus joining at the conclusion of our Play-Off campaign. Markku Kanerva's side travel to Stockholm for a game against Sweden the following Saturday, 29 May, with the final squad for Euro 2020 confirmed on 1 June. 

There's then a final preparation match in Helsinki against Estonia on 4 June before the action proper gets underway in Copenhagen against Denmark on 12 June, kick-off 5pm. The Finns will then decamp to St Petersburg for their next two Group B fixtures against Russia on 16 June, kick-off 2pm, and Belgium on 21 June, kick-off 8pm.

Marcus has earned four caps for Finland at senior level so far, to add to 17 at Youth Level. He scored on debut against France in a friendly last November before featuring in both of that month's Nations League games against Bulgaria and Wales. He was named in the squad for Finland's opening World Cup qualifiers in March, remaining on the bench as The Eagle Owls began with two draws. The 21-year-old did earn his fourth cap at the end of March in a 3-2 friendly defeat to Switzerland. 

At club level, Marcus has nine goals in 48 appearances this campaign. He played in every round, netting twice, against West Bromwich Albion and Fulham, as we reached the Semi-Final of the Carabao Cup, our first ever major cup semi-final, and has also scored seven Sky Bet Championship goals. 

In December, the Brentford B graduate signed a new long-term contract through to 2026 and, in March, he made his 50th First Team appearance for The Bees.
