Euro Cup 2024 Day 7: Group C Matches Round-Up

Slovenia 1 – Serbia 1

Luka Jović scored a last-gasp equalizer as Serbia rescued a point against Slovenia in an entertaining Group C affair in Munich. Žan Karničnik had given Slovenia the lead after a well-executed counterattack, but Serbia’s relentless pressure paid off in stoppage time. Jović’s thumping header from an Ivan Ilić corner sealed the 1-1 draw, denying Slovenia a valuable three points. Both teams showcased skill and resilience, keeping fans on the edge of their seats throughout this thrilling encounter.

Denmark 1 – England 1

England continued to struggle in their second game, with Alexander-Arnold’s midfield role proving ineffective. Bellingham, aside from his opening goal, hasn’t met expectations. In Frankfurt, a tight Group C match saw England and Denmark share the points in a 1-1 draw. Harry Kane opened the scoring for England, but Morten Hjulmand equalized with a stunning long-range strike. The game started with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s early shot on target, hinting at an end-to-end contest, but it soon turned into an England-dominated possession game. Despite Phil Foden hitting the post, and substitute Ollie Watkins being denied, Denmark’s resilience ensured the match ended level.

Spain 1 – Italy 0

The most anticipated match for the top spot in Group C saw Spain’s free-flowing, fast possession game clash with Italy’s tight defense and precise counter-attacks. Italy played a smart tactical game, allowing Spain to dominate possession without exposing open spaces. Spain’s lethal penetrations were thwarted by sensational saves from Donnarumma. Despite a few counter-attack opportunities, Italy’s final passes and finishes lacked quality. An own goal by Italy’s Calafiori, who had been impressive in earlier matches, handed Spain the victory. Both teams played to their strengths, and despite the setback, Italy’s defensive resilience and Spain’s offensive prowess suggest both will advance far in the tournament.
