Oh Lukaku: Belgium was surprised with 1:0 against Slovakia

The outstanding actor

Martin Dubrowka, score: 7
Beyond his five stops, the Slovakia goalkeeper came out several times with excellent timing and caused Lukaku to get into dangerous situations

The disappointing player

Romelu Lukaku, score: 2
Just not his evening. A lot of misses, two invalid goals and a lot of bad luck for the striker

After three days without too surprising results, House of God came to Euro and devoured all the cards. Ukraine lost 3:0 to Romania in the early game, and in the second game of the evening (Monday), Belgium suffered a terrible misfortune and lost 1:0 to Slovakia, who were amazing at the start of the tournament.

The Belgians are known for their “losers” in big tournaments, and this was manifested many times in tonight’s game. Already in the first five minutes, Romelu Lukaku – who would later become the tragic hero of the meeting – missed twice in a one-on-one, and in the seventh minute he was punished with an advantage goal by On Shkrantz who scored from close range from a rebound to a kick by Yorai Kochka.

The Belgians reached a number of great situations, Lukaku missed many times carelessly and even managed to score no less than twice, but unfortunately both goals were disallowed. Slovakia achieved a huge victory at the opening of the group stage and took a big step to the next stage, the Red Devils want to have to show a huge improvement in the end to avoid another embarrassment after the World Cup.

In the next match Belgium will meet the surprising Romania and will have to get the three points. Slovakia will go into the game against the disappointing Ukraine and will look for a point that might guarantee them a place in the next stage.
