Having held France to a 0-0 draw in Tbilisi four days ago, Georgia could not manage a repeat performance against Finland, as Roman Eremenko's penalty settled the FIFA World Cup qualifying Group I tie.

Temuri Ketsbaia's side looked to be a little off their game after their exertions on Friday and lost their chance of finishing third in the section on 74 minutes when Eremenko finished from the spot following handball in the area by David Targamadze. Georgia captain Jaba Kankava was then shown a second yellow card, but while the hosts battled on, the match was lost.
