Another ridiculous Euro record was broken last night with games to spare after Turkey's goal against Czechia

Another ridiculous Euro record was broken last night with games to spare after Turkey's goal against Czechia

Another record has been broken at this summer's European Championships.

Another record was broken at this summer's Euro 2024 in the final group stage game between Turkey and Czechia.

Turkey won 2-1 to progress through the group stage of a major competition for the first time since Euro 2008.

Former Everton striker Cenk Tosun scored a late winner to secure victory, after Inter Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu had earlier put them in front.

They were up against 10 players for the latter period of the match, with Antolin Barak receiving a second yellow card - one of an astonishing 16 given out by the referee to players and coaches.

But Turkey's win means they finish in second place in Group F, and will take on Austria in Leipzig in the final last 16 game on Tuesday, July 2.

And Tosun's late winner means another European Championship record has been broken.

This tournament has seen the most goals scored after the 90th minute - excluding extra time - in the history of the Euros, with 10.

The previous highest of nine were netted in Euro 2016, while Euro 2008 had seven late goals.

Of course, it is worth noting that teams now play 20 matches more than they did prior to tournaments held before 2016 and from 1996, when there were 16 teams and 31 matches were played.

But with 15 matches still to play in the current competition, it is still a remarkable achievement - and testament to the fact that games are never over until the referee blows their final whistle.

However, Turkey will have to play their knockout clash against Austria without the influence of Calhanoglu, who picked up his second yellow card of the group stage against Czechia and is therefore suspended.

Defender Samet Aykadin was also carded and will miss the game, but both players did avoid receiving further punishment from the mass brawl that took place between both sets of players and members of the coaching staff after a tense encounter in Hamburg.
