Georgia 2 vs 0 Portugal

By Gerald Lutchman

Portugal lost but still topped the group after making eight changes to the starting line up but it did not go as it went for Spain.

Georgia made history and made their first tournament knockout stage with this victory. The underdogs did not need dominance, only goals for a comfortable victory. Khvicha Kvaratshelia scored as early as the second minute and Georges Mikautadze scored from the penalty spot to seal the game in the 57th minute.

Cristiano Ronaldo had another poor game and was left frustrated after not having scored a goal in the first three matches.

Turkey 2 vs 1 Czechia

A fight broke out after the game between the players of both teams that left a sour note in the competition. Czechia was eliminated after Portugal were beaten. Hakan Calhanoglou opened the scoring for Turkey in the 51st , Tomas Soucek restored parity in the 66th but Cenk Tosun’s stoppage time goal in the 90 + 4th gave  Turkey the win and the fighting broke out.

Ukraine 0 vs 0 Belgium

This draw meant Belgium advance but Ukraine are out. Belgium failed to score but got the point they needed to advance. Belgian have serious problems getting goals and it may be the problem that gets them eliminated in the next round

Slovakia 1 vs 1 Romania

This draw was ideal for both teams because they both progressed to the knockout stage. Romania has the honour of topping this group. In the 24th minute Ondrej Duda scored for Slovakia but Romania equalized 13 minutes later. Razvan Marin scored the penalty in the 37th that earned the point.
