Euro 2024: Georgia Battle Czech To Thrilling 1-1 Draw

European Championship newcomers Georgia took their first point of the tournament in a 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic on Saturday.

The result leave both teams probably needing to win their final Group F game to stand any chance of advancing to the round of 16.

Georges Mikautadze converted a stoppage-time penalty at the end of the first half to put Georgia ahead.

But Patrik Schick equalised in the 59th minute when the ball rebounded off the far post and on to his chest from Ondrej Lingr’s glancing header from a corner.

Georgia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili made a string of superb saves to keep his team in the game.

Also, Georgia had a glorious chance right at the end of the match to win the game but at the end of a three-on-one break, substitute Saba Lobjanidze blazed over with just the goalkeeper to beat.

Both the Czechs and Georgia lost their opening games and, with one point each, will be under immense pressure to get a result in their last group games on Wednesday.
