Georgia’s Substitute Saba Lobjanidze would remember this game for the rest of his life after he wasted a golden chance at the injury’s time last seconds to clinch his side the victory.

The debutants still claimed a first-ever point in a major tournament with a 1-1 draw against the Czech Republic.



Euro 2024 Highlights – Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

As Euro debutants and also the lowest-ranked side in the tournament, Georgia won the hearts of fans with its fearless mentality and resilient performance, despite the results.

There were few top players in the squad, but Georgia put the pressure on the opponents, the Czech.

Georgia had VAR to thank for ruling out a goal against them and then awarding them a penalty.

Bayer Leverkusen striker Schick may have done better with that early strike. Still, another long throw from West Ham defender Vladimir Coufal soon brought a chance, which Adam Hlozek bundled in at the second attempt.

However, referee Daniel Siebert was sent to his pitchside monitor and ruled the goal out for handball.

Another pitchside review gave Georgia their penalty for handball against Robin Hranac. Metz forward Mikautadze kept his cool to convert his second goal of the tournament. Mikautadze slotted in from the penalty spot to give his side the lead in first-half stoppage time.

But the Czech Republic – quarter-finalists three years ago, finally replied when Patrik Schick turned in after substitute Ondrej Lingr hit the post.

Substitute Lingr finally beat Mamardasvili, who made 11 saves in the match, with a firm header, and Schick was poised to chest the ball over the line.

Schick then limped off with an injury as Georgia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili produced save after save to ensure a share of the spoils.

And there was still time for Lobjanidze to fire over after a three-on-one encounter in the match’s final seconds. Lobjanidze was free 12 yards from goal – but he could only fire over the top.

Next up for Georgia and Turkey

The Czechs face Turkey, while Georgia—placed 74th in the Fifa rankings—takes on Portugal, knowing a win could see them through.

The result means both sides head into their final games in Group F on Wednesday with a chance to progress to the last 16.
