Teemu Pukki provided a dramatic 79th-minute equaliser as a stubborn Finland frustrated Spain in a 1-1 draw in Gijon.

Vicente del Bosque's troops had seized control just after half-time when captain Sergio Ramos marked his 100th cap for his country with a headed goal, but the lead was relinquished when Pukki provided the finish to a rare Finland counterattack.
