Georgia Shocks Portugal with 2-0 Upset to Secure Euro 2024 Knockout Berth

In a stunning upset on a historic day for Georgia, the underdogs triumphed over Group F winners Portugal with a decisive 2-0 victory in Gelsenkirchen. Willy Sagnol's spirited side secured themselves a well-deserved place in the knockout phase of Euro 2024, making headlines with an early strike by Kvaratskhelia, who scored the fastest goal of the tournament so far. Mikautadze later calmly converted a VAR-awarded penalty, marking his influence on all four of his team's goals in the tournament. Goalkeeper Mamardashvili also played a pivotal role, making numerous crucial saves.

On the other hand, a heavily rotated Portugal side looked disjointed throughout the match. Despite having an xG of 1.88 compared to Georgia's 1.37, they struggled to find their rhythm and suffered from a below-par performance. Cristiano Ronaldo, aiming to become the oldest scorer in Euros history, was left frustrated once again.

Both Georgia and Portugal advance to the round of 16, where Georgia will face Spain, and Portugal will take on Slovenia. The next phase of the tournament will commence after a brief two-day hiatus, promising further excitement and drama on the Euro 2024 stage.
