Kylian Mbappe leaves France game covered in blood as fans shower forward with whistles

Belgium battle Romania in a vital Euro 2024 group stage match in Cologne.

The Red Devils were left stunned 1-0 by Slovakia, with Romelu Lukaku frustrated after two goals were ruled out by VAR.

Nicolae Stanciu, Razvan Marin and Denis Dragus all scored on a historic day for Romania in their opener against Ukraine, securing a first victory in 24 years at the Euros and moving to the brink of qualification for the last 16.

“It’s a difficult game, totally different from the first. However, we have courage, belief in ourselves, and we know what we can do,” Romania midfielder Ianis Hagi said.

While Belgium coach Domenico Tedesco was largely pleased with his side’s first performance, with one exception: “The only thing that we didn’t do well (against Slovakia) was missing chances. We had plenty. It’s part of the game.” Follow all the latest updates ahead of Belgium v Romania below:

GOAL! Turkey 0-1 Portugal

GOAL! Right after almost conceding a great chance, Portugal lead!

They attack with Leao down the left, and he slides a ball through to the overlapping Nuno Mendes. Mendes cuts it back looking for Ronaldo in the box, but it gets a deflection off Kokcu and runs straight into the path of Bernardo Silva, who rifles it in at the near post!

Almost a brilliant chance for Turkey as they play out from the back and the ball runs into the path of Kokcu. He almost gets to it to poke it into the path of Yilmaz, but Pepe slides in at the last to prevent the chance!

Euro 2024: Turkey 0-0 Portugal

Turkey switch the play brilliantly and it comes to Çelik on the right of the box. He swings the ball across goal early and Aktürkoğlu is diving in, but he can’t get clean contact on it from around four yards out, and somehow it stays out!

Good play from Turkey as Ayhan plays it across to Akgun in the box, but he can’t get the shot away.
