Playing in their first-ever major tournament, Finland pulled off a huge shock in their opening game by beating Scandanavian rivals Denmark 1-0. They followed that up with a 1-0 defeat to Russia but came close to taking a share of the points there, too.
They face a Belgium side with six points already on the board, meaning there’s a chance of Roberto Martinez resting some key players. Finland will look to take advantage of any complacency or lack of sharpness from incoming players to pick up a point that would send them into the round-of-16.
