Albania take the lead against Croatia

Fans on ‘X’ react in shock as Albania secure a point against Croatia

In a shock turn of events in the Euro 2024 clash between Croatia and Albania, the Adriatic Eagles took the lead against former World Cup finalists, leaving fans on ‘X’ shocked at the unlikely turn of events.

Qazim Laci struck in the 11th minute of the game for the Eagles. Jasir Asani whipped in a wonderful cross into the middle of the box and Laci latched on to it to slot the ball home into the bottom left corner.

The match eventually ended in a 2-2 draw with Albania salvaging a draw at the death.

As expected, social media was shocked with another Albania goal at Euro 2024. Here’s how football fans reacted to that opening goal on X:

Albania eventually went on to secure a crucial 2-2 draw against Croatia at the end of full time.

Croatia’s Euro 2024 campaign now hangs in the balance after that 95th minute equaliser against Albania. This result could possibly be the end of what will likely be legendary midfielder Luka Modric’s last international tournament at the group stage.

The third best team of the FIFA World Cup 2022 have had a poor European Championship record. Ever since the Euros expanded to a 24-team format, Croatia haven’t even gone beyond the round of 16, whereas, they also failed to get past the group stages of this tournament in both Euro 2004 and Euro 2012.
