Kick Off: 21:00 Local (18:00 BST) Dmitry Verkhovtsov's late header earned Belarus a 1-1 draw with Finland in their World Cup Group I qualifier in Gomel. Verkhovtsov popped up in the 85th minute to cancel out Teemu Pukki's first-half strike for Finland. Belarus dominated the early stages and Niki Maenpaa was forced to make a fantastic save from Anton Putsila in the 14th minute. However it was Finland who took the lead 10 minutes later when Pukki drilled a right-footed shot into the net from 20 yards. Both sides squandered chances to add to the scoring before Verkhovtsov had the last word, heading past Maenpaa from the middle of the area.
