Finland vs Russia: the recent form of both teams
The clash between Finland and Denmark was overshadowed by the situation of Eriksen. One of the darkest days in football history where humanity emerged above all and football came second. Markku Kanerva’s side secured a 1-0 win over Denmark after players agreed to take the pitch. Their poor winless run of 6 games ended after this 1-0 victory over Denmark.

Russia conceded inside 10 minutes when Romelo Lukaku’s shot ended in the back of the net. Belgium was up by 2 goals at the break and put the final nail in the coffin in the 88th minute with the third goal. Cherchesov’s side was never expected to spring a surprise against Belgium. Russia is now winless in six European Championship games since a 4-1 success over the Czech Republic in June 2012.
