Finland made it to the semi-finals of the Men’s World Floorball Championships after thumping Denmark 7-0 in their quarter-final today.

The early exchanges between Finland and Denmark were tight with only one goal in the opening period coming from Peter Kotilainen.

Kotilainen bagged the next two strikes to complete his hat-trick and Miko Kailiala also got on the scoresheet.
