I upgraded a DL to a 365 Group. Can I create and link a SharePoint site?

As above, I upgraded one of our existing Distribution Lists to a Microsoft 365 group. Everything appears to have worked correctly, but there's no SharePoint site that would be created automatically when creating a group from scratch.

Is there a way to create a new SharePoint site and link it to the existing group? I know I could make a classic site then link it to a New group, essentially I want to do that but link it to the newly created group.

Solution: attempt to access the shared files via Outlook, it will then create the Sharepoint site.
