Türkiye defeated Georgia, who were making their Euro 2024 debut

Türkiye defeated Georgia, who were making their Euro 2024 debut, 3-1 in a fiercely contested match that was highlighted by two magnificent Turkish goals each side of the break. Mert Muldur's thundering shot from the edge of the box gave Türkiye the lead midway through the first half.

Playing in their maiden major international competition, Georgia equalized in the 32nd minute when Georges Mikautadze converted a cross from Giorgi Kochorashvili past Mert Gunok, who ought to have covered his near post more carefully. After 65 minutes, Arda Guler, 19, who entered the competition off a recent run of goals for Real Madrid, scored by looping an incredible strike into the top corner. Georgia attempted to rally for a late equalizer, but in extra time, Kerem Akturkoglu broke free and passed into an empty net as Mamardashvili came up for many corners, making the score 3-1.
