Portugal qualified for the round of 16 in the European Championship

Cristiano Ronaldo did not score a goal, but did make an assist, and was chased onto the pitch by three people looking for selfies in Portugal's 3-0 win over Turkey in the men's European Championship on Saturday in Dortmund.

Thus, Portugal qualifies for the round of 16.

Ronaldo was the centre of attention at the Westfalenstadion, as always, but not in the way he expected.

The five-time world player of the year set up Bruno Fernandes' third goal with a generous pass when he could easily have tried to shoot.

Then there was chaos when three fans stormed the pitch at different times to try to take a photo with Ronaldo. He agreed the first time, but seemed unhappy the other two times.

On 28H In the 7th minute, after Bernardo Silva's goal, Samet Akaydin tried a pass from behind that ended in his own goal.

Portugal won its first match against the Czech Republic 2-1.

First point for Georgia

Georgia earned their first point in Euro history with a 1-1 draw against the Czech Republic in Hamburg.

Video review was at the heart of the action in this encounter. A goal by Czech Adam Hluzic was ruled out for handball.

Georgia, the only nation to make their European Championship debut this year, then took the lead thanks to a George Mikautadze penalty after a handball by Czech defender Ruben Hranak.

The Czechs tied the game when Patrik Schick scored with his chest after the ball hit the post. Cech left the match moments later due to a calf injury.

Georgia had a great chance to score on the final play of the match, but Saba Lubjanidze's shot went over the crossbar on the counter-attack.

Lobjanidze, who plays for Atlanta United in the Major League Soccer, appeared to cry after the final whistle. He was rested by coach Willy Sagnol.

“As I tried to tell him, those who never try will never fail. The best way to fail is to try,” Sagnol said.

“Some mixed emotions after the game in the locker room. In the first few minutes, I think the players were a little disappointed by this big opportunity, but I hope they quickly understand that they have scored their first ever point in a major tournament.”

This result means that both countries will almost certainly have to win the final to survive.

Belgium and Romania were also scheduled to clash with crossed swords at the end of the day.
