Romania Shocks Ukraine with 3-0 Victory in Euro 2024 Opener

The opening match of Group E in Euro 2024 saw Romania deliver a stunning performance, securing a commanding 3-0 victory over Ukraine in Munich. Despite Ukraine entering the game as favorites, they struggled to convert their dominance in possession into goals.

Romania's captain, Stanciu, capitalized on a goalkeeper error by Lunin to open the scoring in the 29th minute. After the break, Razvan Marin and Dragus added to Romania's tally, sealing an impressive 3-0 win for Iordanescu's team.

Despite holding 71.3% of possession and taking 13 shots, Ukraine managed an xG (expected goals) of only 0.55, highlighting their inefficiency in front of goal. In contrast, Romania, with just 28.7% possession, registered an xG of 1.1, demonstrating their clinical finishing.

Next, Ukraine faces Slovakia in a crucial match to bounce back from this defeat, while Romania eagerly anticipates a challenge against group favorites Belgium in their upcoming fixture.
