Euro Cup charging up now! Exclusive preview by Siddarth

Yesterday at the Euros we witnessed an excellent display of football in the 2 games. Hungary doggedly kept Portugal at bay until the last 6 minutes when Raphael Guerreiros shot took a massive deflection to open the scoring and get Portugal a much needed breakthrough. Within minutes Portugal scored again courtesy a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty .Portugal rubbed salt in the wounds of Hungary in extra time through Cristiano Ronaldo who made a spectacular finish courtesy of Renato Sanches who started the move on the right wing. The game vs France and Germany was another delight to watch , with France attacking from the kick off. Germany were unlucky to go down 1-0 In the 20th minute through an own goal by recalled defender Mats Hummels who tried to block a decisive but unfortunately deflected the ball in his own net past a diving and hapless Neuer. Ilkay Gundogan almost restored parity but saw his shot go off target . In the second half the Germans mounted more attacks but failed to finish in the final third and France’s dogged defense didn’t give them much space or time. France scored 2 more goals courtesy Mbappe and Benzema but both were ruled out due to Mbappe being offside both the times. It was a tough loss for the Germans as they had never lost an opening game at the Euros before.
