“Congratulations to Teemu Puk on his achievement. He deserves a completely new goal record, so fast goals have been achieved in recent years, ”Litmanen congratulated Pukk in a press release from the betting company Unibet.
Litmanen was pleased that Finland’s World Cup dreams survived thanks to an important away victory.
“Despite the sluggish start, Kazakhstan was handled in style. Now the worst competitors, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Ukraine, can be put under nice pressure. ”
