Georgia’s tragedy and Ronaldo’s happiness. What is happening at the 2024 European Championship?

Türkiye and the Czech Republic fought until the end, but not everyone was lucky.

The fifth day of the European Football Championship is already behind us! He gave us two games and several stories. We talk about the main thing in the traditional summary.

What happened at the Euro Cup the day before:

Mbappé’s injury, the tragedy in Belgium and the defeat in Ukraine. What is happening at the European Championship?

The historic Georgia game is a masterpiece. But in the end it is a tragedy.

The Georgian national team for the first time in history reached the final phase of the Euro Cup, so the debut match against Turkey was exciting from the morning. Even the weather became agitated: Dortmund began to flood closer to the game and the stadium turned into a huge swimming pool. The fans also managed to fight in the same stadium.

More on the crazy pre-game events:

Riots in the stadium and a hellish flood. Before Georgia’s start at the European Championship, there was a lot of garbage

Despite all the action, the match went ahead. And it was wonderful! Offensive football from both teams, several goals, at least two, incredibly beautiful. All neutral viewers should be happy.

It’s only sad for Georgian footballers and fans. The team fought back and came as close as possible to equalizing the score in the final minutes, but instead conceded a goal into an empty net just before the final whistle.

In case you had forgotten, in the Euro Cup playoffs, in addition to the 2 best teams in each group, the four best teams in third place also qualify. Consequently, Georgia has not yet lost anything. But the chances have diminished anyway: there are matches ahead with the inflexible Czech Republic and the formidable Portugal. But Türkiye is as close as possible to the round of 16.

Other stories from the game in Dortmund:

Ronaldo wanted to celebrate the record with a goal, but it ended in a massacre with an outsider

Cristiano entered the field for the sixth (!) Euro of his career. Crazy number if you think about it. But there was no personal celebration. The Portuguese began to put pressure on the outsider, but the Czech Republic desperately defended itself. And in the second half he became insolent and scored.

Portugal needed seven minutes to recover. Although it was not the Portuguese who scored, the own goal reigns again in this Euro Cup.

However, this did not make things easier for the favorite. The Czech Republic continued to fight and the decision had to be made in the final minutes. First, after Ronaldo hit the post, Jota headed the ball towards the goal, but the goal was disallowed: offside. But in the 90+2 minute everything was clear: the young Conceição, Porto player and son… of the Porto coach, appeared. This guy has an interesting career!

Although Ronaldo did not score in such an important match, the Portuguese did their job. Now they need very little to make the playoffs and they will probably do it in two games. The Czech Republic showed that outsider status means nothing. We really want to fight in the remaining rounds.

It really was powerful!

Burning comeback from Portugal in the Euro Cup! But instead of Ronaldo they brought in substitutes.
