Comments:

Portugal became the first reigning champions at the UEFA European Championship finals to concede four or more goals in a game. They became the first-ever team to concede two own goals in a game at the UEFA European Championship finals. Cristiano Ronaldo had now equalled Germany's Miroslav Klose's record as the leading European goalscorer at the UEFA European Championship finals and FIFA World Cup finals (19).

Comments:

Germany avoided losing consecutive group games at a major tournament for the first time since Euro 2000. They scored four or more goals in a game at a major tournament for the first time since their 7-1 win against Brazil at the FIFA World Cup finals in 2014. Aged 22 years and eight days, Kai Havertz became Germany's youngest-ever goalscorer at UEFA European Championship finals. Robin Gosens scored after five minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.
