Germany was surprised by a quick counterattack initiated and concluded by Cristiano Ronaldo (15th place), and defeated Portugal 4-2 in Munich to put itself back in the race for the round of 16 of the European Championship in Group Six.

Mannschaft upset the defending champion thanks to two own goals scored by Lusitanian defenders Ruben Dias (35th place) and Rafael Guerrero (39th place), after crosses from German full-backs Robin Goossens and then Joshua Kimmich. Kai Havertz with another cut from the sides (51) and then Goossens himself with a header (60) achieved the first German success in the Euro Championship. Despite the Portuguese reaction, which was embodied in the final goal scored by Diogo Jota (67) from a free kick, the Germans held out until the final whistle.
