Dreamy start for Germany in Euro

Julian Nagelsmann’s side opened the scoring in the 10th minute with Florian Wirtz’s goal, courtesy of an assist by Joshua Kimmich. German attacking midfielder Jamal Musiala doubled their lead by netting a goal through an assist by Kai Havertz in the 19th minute.

Havertz successfully netted a penalty (45+1′) after Scotland’s defender Ryan Porteous received a red card for committing a foul on German captain İlkay Gündoğan. The first half ended with a 3-0 score, as Tartan Army had 10 players on the field.

The hosts took their count to four with Niclas Füllkrug’s goal in the 68th minute. A slip-up of netting an own goal from German defender Antonio Rüdiger opened the scoring for Scotland in the 87th minute. Emre Can scored the last goal of the game from an assist by Thomas Müller just a minute before the final whistle (90+3′).

As a result fans are hopeful for Germany to win this Euro as they are going through a drought from 2014.

Let’s look at the fans reaction after the win.

A fan twitted “Germany winning the Euros”

“After a few ordinary tournaments, this could be Germany’s time. Total control today. Certainly the favourites. #GERvsSCO #euro2024,” chimed in another fan.

Another said “Musiala unreal. Germany looks insane”
