Euro 2024: dates, place, draw
Romelu Lukaku and Belgium did the job in Sweden
The Red Devils won 3-0 against a Swedish team in need of solutions, led by an exceptional Romelu Lukaku, author of his third hat-trick in selection.
The Inter striker scored his 69th, 70th and 71st goals in selection this Friday evening.
We can also note the good performance of Dodi Lukebakio decisive passer on the first two goals.
Opposite, apart from the overflows and dribbles of Tottenham striker Dejan Kulusevski, there is not much positive to note from the Swedes.
We will still remember the entry into play of 41-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who a few days ago became the oldest scorer in the history of Serie A.
The Czech Republic suffocated Poland
Final score 3-1 in favor of the Czechs who scored two goals in the first three minutes of play to put themselves in the best conditions and thus leave no chance to the Poles.
The performance of Robert Lewandowski's teammates (himself very discreet) was disappointing, especially when we know that they were playing in the round of 16 at the last World Cup in Qatar (eliminated by France).
Quiet Greece facing Gibraltar
In Group B of the French team, Greece quietly defeated Gibraltar 3-0.
Greece also offered us two superb goals (2nd and 3rd).
First a tense strike from Siopis about twenty meters from goal just before the break.
Then a high-class sequence from Bakasetas in the second period with an oriented chest control and a flat shot from the left foot to deceive the opposing goalkeeper.
Austria also played against Azerbaijan
Double from Marcel Sabitzer (28th and 50th), a goal (69th) and an assist on Sabitzer's first goal, for Christoph Baumgartner and a convincing final victory against a fairly weak opponent for the Austrians.
Serbia secure against Lithuania
The Serbs had no great difficulty in getting rid of little offensive Lithuanians thanks in particular to goals from their strong men.
The first was the work of Dusan Tadic in the 16th minute before a second goal by Dusan Vlahovic in the 53rd minute on an assist from the first Serbian scorer.
1-1 draw between Moldova and Faroe Islands
It was thanks to an 87th-minute penalty from Nicolaescu that Moldova managed to snatch a -1 draw against the Faroe Islands on Friday evening, after Mads Mikkelsen's opener in the 27th minute.
