Germany beat Ukraine in their Euro opener
World champions Germany defeated Ukraine 2-0 in their Euro 2016 Group C opener in Lille on Sunday.
Germany and Ukraine put on a wildly entertaining match. After several close calls at both ends of the pitch, the opening goal would actually come from a set piece.
Ukrainians have conceded an early goal, but in the end of the first half, there was a clear advantage, and they even scored a goal. However, the referee rightly overturned the goal due to offside. At the end of the match, the Ukrainian team also faced several opportunities to equalize, but they missed a response counter-attack, which was crowned by an effective and accurate kick by Bastian Schweinsteiger.
