Euro 2024: Ukraine come from behind to beat Slovakia 2-1

Ukraine on Friday night registered their first win of the ongoing Euro 2024 tournament in Germany after coming from behind to defeat Slovakia by 2-1.

Goals from Mykola Shaparenko and Roman Yaremchuk secured Ukraine’s first win of Euro 2024 against Slovakia

That winning goal is Roman Yaremchuk’s third at the European Championship, which makes him Ukraine’s all-time leading goalscorer in this competition.

 

He has also become the only Ukraine player to score in two separate European Championships.

Meanwhile, after putting up a yeoman’s job, Mykola Sheparenko was awarded UEFA’s Player of the Match award.

Without the 25-year-old, Ukraine may well have been looking at elimination.

The result means Ukraine join Slovakia and Romania on three points in Group E.

 

Surprisingly, Belgium are lagging behind but they are strongly fancied to also chalk up three points in their game against Romania tomorrow.

 

There is now a very real chance that the four teams will go into the final round of fixtures tied on the same amount of points
