Unexpected defeat for Belgium and two goals disallowed for Lukaku

For Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, the start of Euro 2024 was like a continuation of the 2022 World Cup. The Belgians sensationally lost to Slovakia 0-1, and the center forward himself had terrible luck in the rival goal. Lukaku became the first player in Euro Cup history to have two goals disallowed in a match. First, Romelu’s goal was not counted due to the forward’s offside, and then due to a handball by Lua Openda, who provided the assist. Former Spartak coach Domenico Tedesco lost for the first time with the Belgian team at the most inopportune moment.

Sensational great victory for the Romanian team over Ukraine

The Ukrainian team was considered the favorite in the match against Romania, but suffered a sensational important defeat 0-3. Real Madrid goalkeeper Andrei Lunin had a terrible game, scoring the first goal and not performing in the best way in the episode in which he missed the second. The Romanians, who have no stars in their team, showed surprisingly strong football. Former Ufa player Alexander Zinchenko admitted after the match: “I don’t know what to say. One thing that I have in mind now is that it is very embarrassing to look our fans in the eyes… We all understood that the first game was very important, but, unfortunately, what happened happened.” Really, what more can you say after such a failure?

Eriksen’s goal in the first Euro Cup match after cardiac arrest

The highlight of the match between Slovenia and Denmark was Christian Eriksen’s goal. The Danish midfielder played in the Euro Cup for the first time since June 12, 2021. That day, on matchday 1 of Euro 2020, Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest right on the soccer field in a match against Finland. Then the doctors saved his life. Christian returned to football thanks to an operation and the installation of a pacemaker, and exactly 1,100 days later he went to play for the Slovenians in Stuttgart. Eriksen’s goal could have given the victory, but the Danish team did not maintain the advantage and only got one point.

Strong victory for Portugal with a goal disallowed due to Ronaldo’s offside

Cristiano Ronaldo and his team have taken the first step to repeat the result of 2016. The Portuguese team began its participation in the European Championship with a victory over the Czechs. Difficult, strong-willed. The Portuguese, with a big advantage, conceded after an hour of play. They then recovered thanks to an own goal from Robin Granach and scored another goal, which was disallowed for offside by Ronaldo. The Czech team maintained the tie until minute 90+2, but in added time it still fell apart: Chico Conceição scored the winning goal. Cristiano Ronaldo set a record by playing in the sixth European Championship and Pepe, 41, became the oldest footballer in the history of the European Championship.

The defeat of the Croatian team in Spain by three goals in one time

According to the poster, the match between the Spanish and Croatian national teams was probably central to the 1st round of the European Championship. But instead of a brilliant and even battle, we saw defeat. Furia Roja destroyed the checkers in just 45 minutes thanks to three goals from Álvaro Morata, Fabián Ruiz and Dani Carvajal. The Croatian team had very bad luck: the Spanish took advantage of practically every opportunity they had in the first half. And in the second, the Croatians themselves did not score a penalty. Unai Simón saved a shot by Bruno Petkovic from the penalty spot. Lamin Yamal, who played 338 days at the age of 16, became the youngest footballer and also the youngest assistant in the history of the Euro Cup.

The fastest goal in the history of the Euro Cup in the Italy – Albania match

The Italian team showed convincing football on the 1st round of Euro 2024 and took three points, despite having conceded the fastest goal in the history of the Euro Cup. The record was set by Albanian midfielder Nedim Bajrami, and the co-author of it can be safely recognized as Squadra Azzurra defender Federico Dimarco, who threw the ball out of reach in his own area, directly at the opponent. The goal came 23 seconds after the opening whistle. Bajrami broke the record of Russian national team forward Dmitry Kirichenko, who scored in the 67th second in the match against the Greeks at Euro 2004.

Turkey and Georgia show with the winning goal from Real Madrid talent

The teams of Turkey and Georgia played, according to many, the most spectacular match of the first round of Euro 2024. The teams of Italian Vincenzo Montella and Frenchman Willy Sagnol put on a show with four goals, and the winning goal for the Turks was scored by the young Real Madrid talent Arda Guler. The attacking midfielder made a magnificent dribble from outside the penalty area towards the top corner. In the end, goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili entered the other’s area to make set pieces and, as a result, the Georgian team lost the third goal into an empty net. The Turks punished in a counterattack.

Germany’s victory is the largest in history in a Euro Cup opening match

The first match of Euro 2024 set several records at once. Firstly, never before has the opening match ended with such a big score: the German hosts defeated the Scots 5-1. In addition, Julian Nagelsmann, who heads the German national team, became the youngest coach in the history of the European Championship. On the day of the match he was 36 years and 327 days old. German talents Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala scored the first two goals. And they achieved another achievement: for the first time in the history of the Euro Cup, two players under the age of 22 became scorers for one team in a match. Of course, I also remember Antonio Rudiger’s funny own goal.

French star Kylian Mbappé has a broken nose

The French national team began the European Championship with a 1-0 victory over Austria. At the same time, the Austrians scored the only goal and tricolor star Kylian Mbappé left the field without a goal. In addition, the newcomer to Real Madrid suffered a broken nose and was substituted in the 90th minute. The forward was injured in a collision with Austrian defender Kevin Danso. Based on the results of the examination, Kylian decided not to undergo surgery, but will likely miss the second and third rounds of the group stage. A mask will be made for Mbappé that will protect the attacker’s broken nose. A big problem for Didier Deschamps’ team.

The most boring England team and with the anti-goal record

England’s selection in the 1st round of Euro 2024 lived up to the expectations… of those who predicted Gareth Southgate’s boring football, despite the abundance of stars in the squad. After scoring the only goal against the Serbians, the British began to play to keep the score and achieved their goal. But in a game like this, even the best player in the Premier League last season, Phil Foden and Harry Kane, only lost two touches of the ball before half-time. According to the statistical site Opta Sport, 11 shots on goal in the match between Serbia and England is the fewest number in the European Championship since 1980. Perhaps only Jude Bellingham was satisfied.

Holland gave Poland the finishing touch thanks to a minute-long substitution

The Dutch team started the European Championship with a victory. Admittedly, it is very difficult, even though their Polish rivals lost two main strikers before the first round, including Robert Lewandowski. Ronald Koeman’s team managed to put pressure on the Polish team just 10 minutes from the end of the match. The winning goal was scored by Dutch striker Wout Weghorst, who came on as a substitute. At that moment he had been on the field for just over a minute and scored with the first touch. Weghorst is no stranger to these types of tricks. In the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals with Argentina, he scored a double at the end of regulation time, entering the field with the score 0-2.
