Ukraine has done it and beaten Slovakia in the Euro 2024 Group E clash! They needed to come from behind to seal the win and the three points have given them a chance to make it to the knockout stage.

Ivan Schranz opened the scoring with a close-range header in the 17th minute and it was all Slovakia in the first half as they stopped their opponents from creating a big chance.

The second half proved to be a different story as Mykola Shaparenko made it 1-1 for Ukranie after just 9 minutes. The restart saw the away side take control of the match and a good move gave them the much-needed equalizer.

Shaparenko then turned provider as his ball over the top saw Roman Yaremchuk chasing it into the box. His magical first touch gave him set it up for a push past the keeper and he did exactly that.

Ukraine taking the lead in the 80th minute made it too difficult for Slovakia to make a comeback. The scoreline remained intact and the Group E table got a lot more interesting.

Martin Dúbravka – 6: Did well to make three saves in the game, but could have done a lot better for the winner. He stayed on his line instead of rushing out and putting pressure on the Ukraine forward from the start.

Peter Pekarík – 6.5: Relatively quiet match for the right-back but it was an even fight for Mudryk on his flank.

Denis Vavro – 7: Managed to keep Dovbyk quiet in the game and then did well to shadow Yaremchuk in the late stages of the match.

Milan Škriniar – 6: Could have done a lot better for both goals and was caught flat-footed on a lot of occasions.

Dávid Hancko – 6.5: Had to be taken off injured in the second half and he will be keen on getting back to the pitch for the next match. It was not a match to remember against Ukraine.

Juraj Kucka – 6.5: Was everywhere in the second half and was chasing the Ukraine players. However, he was not able to do much in attack and all three of his shots were off target.

Stanislav Lobotka – 7.5: Solid game as he did his duties well. Could have tracked back a bit more for the first Ukraine goal, but it was hardly his fault for both goals.

Ondrej Duda – 7: Created one chance and took one shot in the game, but he was more involved in defense today and was decent there.

Ivan Schranz – 8: Good game overall and he did get the goal that gave Slovakia the lead. However, apart from that, he could not do much and needs to do a lot better off the ball.

Róbert Boženík – 6: A match to forget for the striker as he played 60 minutes and still failed to get a shot away. Managed just 12 touches and won just one duel.

Lukáš Haraslín – 7: Assisted the goal but was missing for most of the 67 minutes he spent on the pitch.


László Bénes – 6
