Finland are four points behind second-placed France in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group I after conceding a late equaliser against Belarus in Gomel.

Seemingly set for successive 1-0 wins against the section's bottom team in the space of five days, following Teemu Pukki's first-half strike, Finland were denied victory by Dmitri Verkhovtsov's equaliser five minutes from time.
