Belgium sensationally lost to Slovakia at Euro 2024

The Slavic team after the first round is in second place in Group E after Romania

Belgium lost with a minimal score Slovakia in the first round match European Championship 2024 – 0:1.

Francesco Calzona’s team managed to score a quick goal thanks to hyperactive pressing in the opponent’s penalty area. Juraj Kutski’s shot was dealt with by Kuhn Castells, but Ivan Schranz was accurate in finishing.

Slovakia played an almost perfect half. She could have gone into the break with a double advantage, but Castells managed to save after a powerful blow from Lukasz Haraslin.

Belgium spent the entire second half of the match in the opponent’s half. Domenic Tedesco’s team had opportunities to score from time to time. Romelu Lukaku missed a couple of good chances, and two of his goals – in the 56th and 87th minutes – were canceled out after VAR intervention.

In addition, Yoan Bakayoko missed an incredible chance when he shot at the goal in the center, which Martin Dubravka could no longer defend. The goalkeeper on the line was protected by David Gancko.

Thus, both matches of the first round in Group E brought the most unexpected results. Let us remind you that earlier today Romania defeated Ukraine with a score of 3:0.

On June 21, the Slovakia team will compete with the team of Sergei Rebrov, and the next day Belgium will confront the current leader of the group.
