This week sees the return of Nations League fixtures on the international stage as the Home Nations all compete in the UEFA-organised tournament.

Ryan Giggs’ men remained in League B of the Nations League last time out and will hope to earn promotion during 2020/21.

This is Wales’ first game since a 2-0 win over Hungary in European Championships qualifying back in November 2019.

And the two countries haven’t met on the international stage since a 1-1 friendly draw in Cardiff seven years ago.

Finland v Wales team news

Finland: Manager Markku Kanerva has a fully fit squad to choose from on Thursday.

Norwich forward Teemu Pukki will certainly be the most dangerous threat for the hosts, while ex-Fulham goalkeeper Jesse Joronen – now at Brescia – should start between the sticks.

Wales: Giggs is without a number of star names this week, with Aaron Ramsey David Brooks, Tyler Roberts and Ashley Williams not in the squad.

However, Neco Williams is drafted in and could start, while Gareth Bale is set to play, having barely kicked a ball for Real Madrid over the summer. Hal Robson-Kanu returns from international retirement and will seek to make an immediate impact.

Our prediction: Finland v Wales

Wales may be without some key players in their squad but Giggs should still have enough to claim a win here.

Bale will be hoping to prove a point away from his nightmare in Madrid, while Liverpool youngster Williams will likely bomb forward at every opportunity.

This could be a stodgy match at times but Wales certainly have the quality to outplay this Finland side.

Our prediction: Finland 1-3 Wales
