Euro 2024 - European Championship Matches in Stuttgart

The Ball is Round Euro 2024 Group Stage

Sunday, 16th June

Group C

Travel to Slovenia Slovenia 1-1 Denmark Travel to Denmark

A throw-in, flicked on by Jonas Wind to Christian Eriksen; who chests the ball down, gets his body low and hits the ball on the half volley.

A classy goal, from a classy player with plenty of back story, to deservedly fire Denmark ahead in the 17th minute.

Another hour of football would be played before Slovakia's Erik Janža could level the score; firing in from the edge of the area, after a Danish corner is flicked away, helped along by a deflection off Hjulmand to wrong-foot Kasper Schmeichel.

Group A

Travel to Germany Germany 2-0 Hungary Travel to Hungary

Hungary dealt with the initial threat from  Musiala and Gündoğan then gave the ball back to them; Gündoğan picking it up and playing back to Musiala who opened the scoring for the hosts in the 22nd minute.

The second goal took a while coming. Smooth movement from German created the space for İlkay Gündoğan to sweep the ball home with his left foot. Not a thrilling match, but Germany are looking good candidates to go all the way.

Sunday, 23rd June

Group A

Travel to Scotland Scotland 0-1 Hungary Travel to Hungary

Hungary hit the woodwork from a free-kick, just before half-time and later hit the post in the second minute of time added on.

Kevin Csoboth made up for that miss eight minutes later, to get the three points for Hungary.

Scotland complained about not getting awarded a penalty in the 79th minute, but in all fairness it looked like Stuart Armstrong wrestled the defender to the ground with a grip on his shirt.

If all that wasn't drama enough, Hungary's Barnabas Varga was taken to hospital after a clash with Scotland goalkeeper, Angus Gunn.

Group E

Travel to Ukraine Ukraine 0-0 Belgium Travel to Belgium

Belgium qualify without looking like they deserved it. Next up, France.

Ukraine are out, with four points.

Knockout Stage - The Road to Berlin.

Euro 2024 Quarter-finals

Friday, 5th July

Travel to Spain Spain 2-1 aet Germany Travel to Germany

The two highest scorerers go head to head. This could have been the final; but it's Stuttgart, and not Berlin.

After an intense first-half without a goal, Dani Olmo made it advantage Spain, six minutes after the restart.

Germany tried hard to equalise and give something for the home fans to cheer about.

Then just as England fans thought they might be able to snap up tickets for the final, Florian Wirtz pulled the hosts level with a minute to go.

Spain really thought they'd won it too early and were taken in to extra-time.

Then just as it looked like we were preparing for penalties, Spain's Mikel Merino sent the hosts home. Sorry; to Majorca.

To Munich for the semi-final.

The Ball is Round Euro 2024 Host Cities
