German team forces Portuguese to defend a lot and wins first European Championship victory / Day


The German team in Munich defeated Portugal convincingly in the Group F game with 4: 1 (2: 1).

Robin Gossens and Kay Havercs scored the winners, but the Portuguese sent two balls into their goal. In the Portuguese national team, Christian Ronaldo and Djí Jota were accurately beaten.

The home side managed to get a goal back in the fifth minute. Gosenss jumped to the left of the partner in the penalty area on the left pole and scored a beautiful goal. However, the Portuguese team rushed the ball to the referee, who, a moment later, with the help of colleagues, concluded that Thomas Miller, who was experienced at the time of the attack, hit the ball with his hand. The goal was not scored.

The German national team continued to play actively in the next ten minutes, but the Portuguese scored the first goal in the 15th minute. At the end of the 14th minute, the German team made a corner kick to the opponent’s goal, but the center was too strong, as a result of which the Portuguese team quickly rushed into the attack. Bernard Silva remonstrated furiously with the referee after Zotto had another decision go against them. The striker sent the ball into the empty goal, scoring his 12th goal in the European Championship final.

The German national team also controlled the ball much more often during the half-time and played patiently near the goal of the Portuguese national team, looking to score their first goal. An equalizing goal seemed certain after 35 minutes when Joshua Kimmihs attacked down the left wing, but Kaja Haverca just managed to make a save to keep the ball out of the net. Later, it turned out that the last ball was hit by Rubens Dias.

Six minutes before the end of the first half, the Germans had already reached 2: 1. Millers’s Kimmihs was delighted to score the 2 – 0 goal after he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing goalkeeper and into the net, following some good attacking movement on the right wing after 80 minutes. The ball bounced harmlessly off the post, though. Rafaels Gerreiru was the first to reach the corner kick, but his header was blocked by the keeper. In the next attack, Havercs was not far off to score the third goal of the German national team.

The German national team scored two goals in the sixth minute of the second half. The Germans quickly moved the ball from one side of the field to the other, where it was received by Gosens. The footballer approached the penalty area and scored Havercam in front of the goal, who was moving with one touch.

The goal of the home team did not subside for the next five minutes. Kimmihs broke through on the right, leaving the entire defense trailing in his wake. Havercs Gosenss was the scorer. The ball passed Haverc, but behind him was Gossens, who hit his head accurately from a close distance.

The Portuguese team did not hit its head and regained one goal already in the 67th minute. The free kick routine saw the ball shifted quickly to one side of the box, then back to the other. Žota appeared on cue near the post, and steered it past the goalie.

Already in the second half of the game, the pace slowed down, the ball was often in the center of the field, regardless of which team had it. The German national team attacked from time to time, but at the end of the match, one of the most dangerous moments in the 82nd minute surrendered to Leon Goreck. The footballer’s shot from the penalty area flew just above the crossbar.

In the fourth minute, the Portuguese tried to use their skill at attacking on the flanks. Ronaldu managed to get hold of the rebound and tucked the ball into the empty net. The game ended with a score of 4: 2 in favor of Germany.

Ronald has scored a total of 19 goals in the World Cup and European Championship finals. The same is true of the former German attacking leader Miroslav Kloz.

This is still the richest game for the final tournament goal.

Portugal escaped losing points at the start of the final tournament and defeated Hungary 3-0. Christian Ronaldo, who is the most productive player of all time in the finals with 12 goals, scored two goals for the Portuguese national team. Germany, on the other hand, lost 0: 1 to France, with Mats Hummels sending the ball into his goal.

Undoubtedly the brightest star of the Portuguese national team is Ronaldu, one of the best footballers in the world. The Portuguese football icon was injured in the final match five years ago, but the game continued on the reserve bench and with his support helped the team win its first title in history. In the final match against France, the victory goal was scored by Eders, who has not played in this final tournament and has not been in the national team since 2018.

The Portuguese were also close to the title in 2004, when they acknowledged the superiority of the Greek team in the final of the championship held at home with 0: 1. In three more finals, Portugal has reached the semifinals. Germany, like Spain, has three titles, the last of which was won in 1996.

In the test matches, Germany first fought a draw with Denmark 1: 1, but then defeated Latvia 7: 1 in goal 100 with goalkeeper Manuel Noier. Portugal played a 0-0 draw with Spain, but later defeated Israel 4-0.

Of the 18 games between the two teams, Germany has won ten, Portugal three and five duel have ended in a draw. Since losing in the 2000 European Championship group tournament, Germany has won the last four games. Both teams met in the 2014 World Cup subgroup, where the Germans won 4: 0. There are three goals for Thomas Miller and one for Hummels.

Ronaldu with 107 goals in 177 games is the most convincing football player of the Portuguese national team, followed by Andre Silva with 16 accurate shots. In addition to Ronald, the experienced Juu Mutinju and Pepe have also exceeded the limits of 100 games in the team.

Forward Miller and defender Hummels have returned to the German national team after a break of a few years. The national team also includes three recent winners of the UEFA Champions League – Chaiea London, the winner of the Chelsea title, as well as Timo Werner and Antonio Riediger. Serge Njabri and Lyrei Sane can also be given power in the attack.

Since 2006, the German national team has been led by Joachim Lev, whose position will be taken over by Hans Dieter Flick after the European Championship final. Lev with the German national team won the 2014 World Cup. Portugal has been driven by Fernando Santus for the last seven years, under whose leadership Selecao triumphed in the 2016 European Championships.

Already on the day of the draw, subgroup F was designated “death group” because France, Portugal, Germany and Hungary were drawn. Although the third best team in the group can also reach the “play-off”, it is not excluded that the final tournament for one of the European grands will end after the subgroup tournament.

At the end of the day at 22:00 in Seville, the game of subgroup E between the Spanish and Polish teams will start. This no less intriguing game will also be broadcast on TV6.

It has already been reported that Hungary was a 1: 1 (1: 0) draw with the world champion France in the F-Group F match in Budapest.

The group leader with four points is France, Germany and Portugal have three points each, and Hungary has one point.

The final tournament of the 2021 European Championship will take place in 11 European cities until July 11. The continent’s strongest team will be determined at Wembley Stadium in London. The revamped Wembley Stadium will host the national team title match for the first time in history, but its predecessor once played in the 1966 World Cup final and the 1996 European Championship final.

Five years ago, Portugal was crowned European Champion, beating France in the final match in Paris with a score of 1: 0.

In the final tournament of the European Championship, 24 teams are divided into six subgroups of four each. The two best teams will automatically qualify for the first round or the eighth final of the elimination tournament, as well as the four best third place winners.

A total of 51 games will be played in this European Championship. When there were 16 more teams in the tournament, 31 matches had to be played.
