The Norwich forward scored 10 goals as Finland qualified for a
first major tournament.

Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand will prepare his side for the threat of Finland frontman Teemu Pukki as if they were coming up against Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo in their Euro 2020 opener in Copenhagen. Norwich forward Pukki, now recovered from ankle ligament damage suffered at the end of the Sky Bet Championship campaign, scored 10 of Finland's 16 goals as they qualified for a first appearance at a major tournament in second place behind Group J winners Italy. The fitness and form of Pukki, who returned to action as a substitute for the closing stages of last week's friendly defeat to Estonia, will be key to the hopes of the Eagle Owls making an impact this summer.

Hjulmand, though, is confident Denmark have done their homework on every key man they are likely to face at Euro 2020.
