Finnish national football team head coach Markku Kanerva discussed the upcoming match against Russia in the 2020 UEFA European Championship at a pre-match press conference in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday. "We are looking forward to tomorrow's game. It took a couple of days to recover from the game with Denmark, both mentally and physically, it was a difficult game in many ways. Tomorrow is going to be a rather difficult test. We will face harsh Russia. We got a lot of confidence from playing against Denmark, so I believe tomorrow we will have the opportunity to challenge Russia," stated Kanerva. During the press conference, the coach also noted the talent of the Russian national team midfielders Alexander Golovin and Alexey Miranchuk, who can strengthen the team's attack. "The attack depends not only on Dzyuba, they have Golovin and Miranchuk too, they are talented with the ball. So our defense should work just as well as against Denmark," stressed Kanerva. The Russia versus Finland clash in Saint Petersburg is scheduled for June 16. Finland come into the game with three points after their win against Denmark on Saturday, whereas Russia are currently bottom of the group with zero points after a three-nil defeat to Belgium. --- SOT, Markku Kanerva, Finnish national football team head coach (Finnish): "It was nice to see the stadium, I think it's great. We are looking forward to tomorrow's game. It took a couple of days to recover from the game with Denmark, both mentally and physically, it was a difficult game in many ways. Tomorrow is going to be a rather difficult test. We will face harsh Russia. We got a lot of confidence from playing against Denmark, so I believe tomorrow we will have the opportunity to challenge Russia. " SOT, Joni Kauko, Finnish national football team midfielder (Finnish): "As Markku said, our goal is always to win, it is wrong to hope for a draw. The game becomes too passive if you start coming up with different scenarios of what might happen. So, we will not think about it, but we will try to win." SOT, Markku Kanerva, Finnish national football team head coach (Finnish): "The attack depends not only on Dzyuba, they have Golovin and Miranchuk too, they are talented with the ball.
