The Euro has just concluded its first day of group stage. All the contenders for the final victory responded, except Belgium, beaten for their entry into the running against Slovakia (1-0). It is also Martin Dubravka who opens the ball for this eleven guy. The Newcastle goalkeeper disgusted the Red Devils by making 5 saves, plus a decisive exit, also helped by VAR, which denied Lukaku two goals. The Slovakian joins a team structured in 4-2-3-1 where we find his teammate Milan Skriniar in central defense.

The Parisian also held the house in hinges, despite the presence of the athletic Belgian striker in front of him. The captain of the selection teams up in our eleven with the Turkish Samet Akaydin, decisive yesterday against an enterprising Georgia. We can even say that he snatched the victory since the Panathinaikos defender repelled Davitashvili’s last attempt almost on his line. Ferdi Kadioglu is not left out on his left side. The Fenerbahçe player animated his side throughout the meeting, while we opted for Dani Carvajal on the right flank, very prominent during Spain’s authoritarian success over Croatia (3-0).

A very attractive midfielder

But the real man of the match for La Roja is Fabian Ruiz. The left-handed PSG midfielder first served as a passer for Morata then scored a splendid goal, all in just 180 seconds. To accompany him, we chose N’Golo Kanté, tireless against Austria. Technically clean, the man who had not played for the French team for two years knew how to open the game, break the lines and above all defend his goal tooth and nail, as evidenced by this latest return on Wimmer. A notch higher, to lead the offensive game, Jamal Musiala, Nicolae Stanciu and Arda Güler were our favorites.

Scorer and passer, the German was impeccable against a weak Scotland and sets the tone for the rest of the competition. The Romanian captain launched his partners perfectly with this magnificent goal against Ukraine and a victory which already smells of the 8th finals. For his part, the young Turk turned the match around with what could be the goal of the Euro, an exceptional strike from 35 meters into Mamardashvili’s top corner. Finally up front, there was plenty of choice but Denis Dragusqui ended up winning. The Romanian also hurt the Ukrainians by scoring his team’s 3rd goal.
