The first tour of the group stage of the UEFA European Football Championship comes to the end. The games of the F group will become “the final flourish” as it gathered France, Germany, Portugal, and Hungary. 112.international tells last news of the teams and why you cannot miss today’s football.
The match of the day
Such a thing has never happened at Euro before. The winners of the last two championships of the world will play against each other. The French team won in 2018; while the German team won in 2014. Both, Didier Deschamps and Joachim Löw have not just magnificent but the best selection of players that can only be dreamt of. It would be better for Germans to have a good forward…
However, they have the advantage – they play home in Munich. Considering the fact that there is a small conflict in the national team of France between Olivier Giroud and partners, the German team has a great possibility to show the rival that Bundesteam in this “group of death” is the main predator.
France – German match will start at Allianz Arena at 22:00.
Not only football matters
Euro 2020 turns out to be extremely replete with events. Every day something happens that rewrites the history of football or makes the fans clutch their heads all over the world. You be the judge.
The first day – the first goal in the championship is made in their own gates.
The second day - Christian Eriksen loses consciousness during the games with Finns. We wish you health Christian!
The third day – the national team of Ukraine together with the Dutch showed the best game of the championship in the storyline.
The fourth day - Patrik Schick makes a goal at Scotland’s gates from the middle of the field.
Let's gather here and give Patrick Schick the credit that he deserves ???????????? Chris Kirubi Scotland Czech Republic pic.twitter.com/4yK5wGYkQ1— Caolan???????????? (@CazzaSzM) June 14, 2021
