When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 2pm BST at the Krestovsky Stadium.

Confirmed line-ups:

Finland: Hradecky; Toivo, Arajuuri, O’Shaughnessy; Raitala, Lod, Schuller, Kamara, Uronen; Pukki, Pohjanpalo

Finland: 5/1

Russia were poor in their opening match, but they were facing a very strong Belgian side. Finland are plucky and difficult to break down, and I don’t see Russia having the power to get all three points. 0-0.
