The match in Lisbon ended without goals, although Cristiano Ronaldo, the second best scorer in the history of international matches, also started in the basic line-up of the home team. However, he did not follow up on the current 101 goals in the Portuguese jersey, so he still loses eight hits to the record holder of the Iranian Ali Daeí.
The Spaniards lost a record series of 42 matches in which they scored at least one goal. Before today, they did not score last in the round of 16 Euro 2016 against Italy.
Giroud hit in the 24th minute with a great shot from behind the lime and ten minutes later added a second hit for himself, typically with his head. He moved 42 points ahead of Michel Platini in 42 goals in the historical standings of the French national team. He loses nine goals to Thierry Henry.

France scored the fifth win in a row, although coach Didier Deschamps did not put a number of supports in the basic line-up. Already the first half, however, his charges clearly controlled 4: 0 and after a change of sides, thanks to the goal and assistance of the alternating Kylian Mbappý, they increased the score even more.
In the 81st minute, Germany took the lead for the third time in the match after a hit by Gian-Lucy Waldschmidt, but the Turks were able to answer again. In the fourth minute of the setup, Kenan Karaman, the forward of the second-league Düsseldorf, stood at the end of the handsome combination and equalized in cold blood.

Coach Frank de Boer experienced an unsuccessful premiere on the bench of the Dutch national team, where he replaced Ronald Koeman, who left for Barcelona. Raúl Jiménez decided the victory of Mexico 1-0 after an hour of play from the penalty.
Italy scored five goals for the third time in the history of the opponent in the opening act and quickly decided on a high 6-0 win over Moldova. Winger Stephan El Shaarawy twice won and Sassuola striker Francesco Caputo, who made his debut in the “Squadry Azzury” jersey at the age of 33, also hit.
The Croatian runners-up reversed the match in Switzerland and succeeded after two previous defeats. After 66 minutes, Mario Pašalič made a dash down the middle past the away team’s defenders to score the goal that made it easy.
Poland lacked Bayern Munich’s gunner Robert Lewandowski, who was voted Europe’s best footballer last season in a UEFA poll last week, but was replaced by Kamil Grosicki in scoring. West Bromwich’s midfielder recorded a clear hat-trick in the first half in 29 minutes and significantly helped the 5: 1 win over Finland.
