We are shifting our focus to Parken stadium, where the teams from Denmark and Belgium are waiting for a special duel.

The duel in Copenhagen is of course dominated by Christian Eriksen, as the teams announced in advance that there will be applause in the tenth minute.

a few seconds ago

With this result, the Netherlands can secure the first place in Group C tonight. A victory over Austria is sufficient for that.

Due to a strong first half, Ukraine wins 2-1 against North Macedonia.

Yarmolenko and Yaremchuk provided a reassuring Ukrainian lead at halftime.

North Macedonia came back strongly after the break, but did not get further than a penalty from Alioski that was used in two.

Malinovsky, on the other hand, missed another penalty.

Another twenty minutes in Bucharest.

North Macedonia has a strong start after the break and halved the deficit via Alioski.

Still, a victory does not seem to be in it for the European Championship debutant, so that the Orange could already secure the group win tonight.

a few seconds ago

69 'The second half is a world of difference compared to the first.

An equalizer for North Macedonia would not be illogical in view of the game.

Bardi now tries, but chases the ball a few meters over.

a few seconds ago

68 'Trajkovski tries again from a distance and Bushchan has a lot of trouble with the bounce in the substitute's attempt.

He barely manages to tap the ball wide.

Aleksandar Trajkovski has replaced Boban Nikolov and Darko Churlinov replaces Stefan Spirovski.

a few seconds ago

Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk can rightly be called the Ukrainian royal couple this European Championship.

The duo were responsible for Ukraine's two hits against the Netherlands and thanks to hits from the two attackers, Andrij Shevchenko's team leads 2-0 against North Macedonia halfway through.

a few seconds ago


Ukraine has no child in North Macedonia and is ahead 2-0 halfway through hits from Yarmolenko and Miranchuk.

Goran Pandev thought to do something in return, but his beautiful marker was canceled due to offside.

With this score, the Orange squad can already take the first place in the group against Austria tonight.

a few seconds ago

The Argentine referee Rapallini does not fall for it and shows the left attacker a yellow card.

34' GOAL Ukraine! 


Five minutes after the opening goal, Ukraine doubles the lead.

Yarmolenko sends Roman Yaremchuk away and the striker does a good job this time: he slides the ball into the short corner.

a few seconds ago

This goal by Yarmolenko is also good news for the Orange: if Ukraine does not lose this afternoon, the Netherlands can already secure the group win tonight with a win over Austria.

a few seconds ago

29' GOAL Ukraine! 


There's the long-awaited opening goal!

Andriy Yarmolenko first encounters Dimitrievski, but from the following corner he can tap the ball in at the far post.

a few seconds ago

21 'Ukraine is trying to destroy the defense of North Macedonia at a high pace, but in the final phase it often just doesn't fit.

Yarmolenko gets the opportunity to cut to his left leg after an outbreak, but Musliu manages to block his shot.

Yarmolenko was brilliantly accurate against the Netherlands.

a few seconds ago

a few seconds ago

11 'Chance for Ukraine!

Roman Yaremchuk cleverly turns away and can continue towards the Macedonian target.

Kick off! 

Ukraine and North Macedonia are hunting for the first points at this European Championship.

For the Macedonians, that would be the first points ever in a final round.

a few seconds ago

The players come onto the field and in North Macedonia Goran Pandev leads the way.

He has just reported in the players tunnel and can therefore start, despite the premature termination of the warm-up.

a few seconds ago

Ukraine fans are ready in Bucharest.

a few seconds ago

Goran Pandev seems to have slipped in the warm-up and has disappeared into the catacombs.

So it remains to be seen whether the Macedonian eye-catcher will be kicking off in fifteen minutes.

a few seconds ago

Orange therefore has an interest in the loss of points from Goran Pandev's North Macedonia.

If the Macedonians fail to beat Ukraine, the Netherlands will be crowned group winner tonight with a win over Austria.

a few seconds ago

The Arena Nationala in Bucharest is slowly filling up.

Thirteen thousand supporters are allowed to be present in the stadium.
