The Finland Euro 2024 squad will come around sooner than you think, with Markku Kanerva's side in contention to reach their second successive European Championship.

Finland made their major tournament debut at Euro 2020, where they narrowly missed out on a place in the last 16 after finishing third in their group.

Third in a highly competitive group also containing Denmark, Slovenia and Kazakhstan as things stand, Euro 2024 qualification is still in Finland's hands.
