Germany And Portugal Play Out The Best Game Of Euro 2020 So Far

Germany beat Portugal 4-2 at the Allianz Arena in what was comfortably the most entertaining game of Euro 2020 so far.

Joachim Low's side desperately needed a victory after losing out to France in their opening fixture and found themselves 1-0 down when Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal up against the run of play in the 15th minute.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner cleared the ball from a Germany corner and then darted up the pitch at an electric pace to finish off a flowing counter attack that saw Diogo Jota provide him with a tap in.

But the four-time World Cup winners turned it on big time and found themselves 2-1 up at half-time after Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerrero both put through their own net in quick succession.

Die Mannschaft continued to dominate and extended their lead early on in the second half when Chelsea's Champions League final hero Kai Havertz got on the scoresheet.

Atalanta's rampaging left wing-back Robin Gosens put it on a plate for Havertz to register his second assist, before capping off a sublime outing with a header at the back post to make it 4-1.

Jota reduced the deficit for holders Portugal, who now face France in a massive game in Group F on Wednesday.
