Belgium faced Slovakia in a thrilling encounter in the ongoing UEFA European Championship match.

Belgium was expected to start off their campaign on a good note but Slovakia made things difficult for them in the first half of the game.

Slovakia surprised Belgium early on with Ivan Schranz scoring his first goal for Slovakia in three years, putting them in the lead.

That goal from Ivan Schranz is the faster goal ever scored for Slovakia in the European Championship.

Despite Doku’s efforts in Belgium’s attack, they struggled to find the equalizer. The first half showcased Slovakia’s early dominance and did everything possible to keep the scoreline at 1-0 before half time ended.

Belgium fought back in the second half with Lukaku, who missed several chances in the first half, finding the net, only for it to be ruled offside.

Openda entered the game and assisted Lukaku for what seemed like the equalizer, but VAR disallowed the goal due to a handball by Openda.

The match intensified with Belgium’s determined efforts and the VAR decisions adding drama to the game.

The back-and-forth nature of the match kept fans on edge as both teams pushed for a breakthrough in the intense second half.

Belgium’s showing was disappointing, contrasting with Slovakia’s historic moment.

Slovakia have now won a European Championship game for just the third time in their history.

Slovakian manager Francesco Calzona emphasized the importance of “not losing” before kick-off, setting a strategic tone for the team.

The match’s outcome reflects Slovakia’s focus on maintaining a solid defense and seizing crucial opportunities, marking a significant achievement for the team.

Despite Belgium’s challenges, Slovakia’s disciplined approach and determination to make history were evident throughout the game.
