Slovakia Stuns Belgium

In a major upset, Slovakia edged past footballing giants Belgium 1-0 in their opening match of Euro 2024 on Monday. The encounter, held at the Frankfurt Arena, saw Slovakia capitalize on an early goal to secure a historic victory.

Ivan Schranz was the hero for Slovakia, finding the net in just the seventh minute of the game. Despite Belgium’s strong showing and reputation in Group E, they were unable to find an equalizer.

Romelu Lukaku, Belgium’s star striker, had a chance to salvage a point for his team in the second half. However, his efforts were thwarted by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system, which disallowed two of his goals.

This defeat puts Belgium in a precarious position in the group stage. They will need to bounce back in their next match against Romania. Slovakia, on the other hand, will look to build on this momentum when they face Ukraine.
