Finland is still in contention for the World Cup finals thanks to its 0-2 victory over Kazakhstan. Teemu Pukki scored both goals and, with 33 goals, surpasses Jari Litmanen as Finland’s all-time leading scorer.
Jari Litmanen remains undoubtedly Finland’s greatest footballer. With 137 caps, collected in no less than 4 different contracts, he remains the record holder for his country. But since today he has lost his goal against Teemu Pukki.
Pukki needed less than 100 caps to reach 33 goals. In a one-sided match against Kazakhstan, he scored two goals from many chances.
Finland somewhat compensated for its defeat at home to Ukraine, vying for second place. It looks like they are fighting with Bosnia for a ticket to the play-offs in Group D.
