Saturday’s Euro 2021 results
Portugal 2, Germany 4
Germany are back! Or so we think, after their 4-2 win over defending Euro champs Portugal, one of the most entertaining matches of the competition thus far. The Germans romped with four unanswered goals after Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in Munich.
Portugal will be disappointed that the first two German goals came from own goals before halftime to make it 2-1. Then Kai Havertz and Robin Gosens padded the German lead in the second half, with Gosens claiming man-of-the-match honors for his stellar performance on the left side.
The Portuguese got one back through Diogo Jota and nearly scored a third goal when a Renato Sanches blast smashed the woodwork. It would have made for a nervy ending, but Germany saw out the rest of the match and set themselves up to qualify for the knockouts with a positive result against Hungary in their group finale.
Hungary 1, France 1
Emotions were riding high in Budapest where a sold-out crowd of nearly 60,000 watched their Hungarian team tie defending World Cup champions France 1-1, still giving them hope of advancing from the toughest group at the Euros.
Hungary left wingback Attila Fiola sent the stadium into a frenzy just before halftime when he made a surprising run into the box and slotted home a goal to open the score. Although France outshot Hungary 15-5 and forward Antoine Griezmann found the back of the net in the 66th minute, the Hungarians held strong defensively to secure the draw and their first point.
The Hungarians will seek one more magical performance in their final group game gainst Germany. They won’t have their Budapest faithful behind them, since that match will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Defending World Cup champs France will meet defending Euro champs Portugal in the other match.
Friday’s Euro 2021 results
England 0, Scotland 0
Well, that turned out to be a dud. A star-studded English team with attackers like Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount, Phil Phoden and later Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford, could not find a way through a defensively stout Scottish side.
England’s John Stones hit the post on a header and English ‘keeper Jordan Pickford made a sensational save on a Stephen O’Donnell shot, but that was it. There were only three combined shots on goal all game. Sterling thought he had earned a penalty for England in the 79th minute, but the referee didn’t oblige.
The draw suits both teams well ahead of their respective group finales. Scotland will likely move on with a win at home in Hampden Park against Croatia, while England will go through with a win or draw against the Czech Republic. But if the English want to advance as the first-place team in their group, only a win will do.
Croatia 1, Czech Republic 1
Patrik Schick moved to the top of the Euro 2021 goal-scoring charts with a controversial penalty-kick goal, his third of the competition, as the Czech Republic picked up another point in a 1-1 draw against Croatia.
Schick converted the penalty kick after the referee ruled he was struck by a Dejan Lovren elbow in the first half. Croatia’s Ivan Perisic got the early second-half equalizer on a stunning finish.
The Czech team faces England next, but it will feel confident that four points will be enough to get to the next round. Croatia will need a win at all costs against Scotland if the 2018 World Cup finalists have any hope of advancing.
Sweden 1, Slovakia 0
A 77th-minute penalty kick by Emil Forsberg was all that Sweden needed to win its second group match against Slovakia, 1-0, putting itself in position to advance in the final group game against Poland.
Slovakia, which was looking to add to its points total after its opening win against Poland, played a conservative game and was clearly looking for the tie. But that plan blew up when Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka brought down Sweden forward Robin Quaison in the box with Forsberg converting the ensuing PK.
It was a well-deserved win for a Sweden side that ratcheted up the pressure in the second half with 21-year-old forward Alexander Isak creating multiple opportunities.
