Georgia vs Portugal 2-0: UEFA Euro 2024 – as it happened Khabritak

This page is now closed. Thanks for joining us. These were the updates as Georgia beat Portugal in Group F of Euro 2024 on Wednesday, June 26:

Georgia stun Portugal to book their place in the last 16 of Euro 2024, alongside Turkey and the Portuguese, who finished top of Group F, as Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s early goal and a Georges Mikautadze penalty earned the Georgians a 2-0 win.
Portugal’s Antonio Silva was at fault for both goals, having passed the ball straight to Mikautadze who fed Kvaratskhelia to score after 93 seconds before the defender clumsily conceded the spot kick, which Mikautadze converted in the 57th minute.
Meanwhile, Turkey scored an added-time winner to beat Czechia 2-1 and finish second with Georgia advancing to the final best third-place spot at the expense of Group A’s Hungary.
