Group A

The party ended for Scotland in the tenth minute and the hangover started at half-time, as ten-man Scotland walked down the tunnel; three goals down to the hosts, Germany.

Scotland managed another little party chorus, three minutes before the final whistle, after Antonio Rüdiger gifted them a consolation goal.

But their joy was short-lived, as Emre Can topped the event to give the neutral fans of football the biggest opening day scoreline at the European Championships.

Travel to Romania Romania 3-0 Ukraine  Travel to Ukraine

Romania were fortunate when a poor clearance from Andriy Lunin fell to Dennis Man, who wasted no time finding the space in front of Nicolae Stanciu, on the edge of the area. Stanciu strode on to the slightly rising ball and curled it powerfully into Lunin's top corner.

Romania doubled their lead early in the second-half when Răzvan Marin was first to a loose ball on the edge of the area and lashed it low past Lunin.

Ukraine's defence was completely shattered from a corner four minutes later, as Romania almost almost walked the ball into the net for their third goal; Dennis Man wriggling forward to nutmeg a defender and lay the ball theough to Denis Drăguş, on a plate.

Malen then doubled his tally in time added on, getting the better of Romania on a counter attack.
