On Wednesday, 26 June, the group stage of the European Football Championship ended in Germany. The Ukrainian national team became the first team in history to take fourth place with 4 points and drop out of the tournament. We tell you how the group stage went, which team was a surprise and what awaits us in the final round.


Ukraine left the Euros after playing on a par with Belgium


The last match of the Ukrainian team took place in Stuttgart. Rebrov's team met the Belgian national team. In order to move on, the Yellow and Blues needed to get three points. However, the miracle did not happen and the teams played to a goalless draw, although at some points the Ukrainians were close to scoring. And in general, the Ukrainian national team looked exactly like a team that is fighting to move on.


Rebrov's men played aggressive and even football against Belgium, which was considered the favourite in Group E. The match went well for the Ukrainians, despite the absence of key players such as Mykhailo Mudryk and Viktor Tsygankov.


However, the losing match against Romania was fatal for the Blue and Yellows, and the team was eliminated from the Euros only on the basis of goals conceded.


Georgia reaches the play-offs for the first time in history


This year, the Georgian team participated in the European Championship for the first time in its history. It is not surprising that the Georgians managed to get this far, as the team now has perhaps the strongest squad in its football history.


In the key match that also decided Georgia's fate at the Euros, the team managed to beat not just anyone, but the 2016 European champions Portugal with a score of 2-0.
