Is the history of the greatest Euros shock ever reoccurring in 2024?

The Euro 2024 group stage is over and if you believe in coincidences we could be in for a shock winner....

Euro 2024’s group stage is now complete, and the action in Germany has provided us with no shortage of drama, excitement, and upsets. Some of the favorites, like England and France, have limped into the knockout stage, while heavyweights like Germany, Portugal, and Spain have handled business with little fuss and have also produced a few surprise packages. Austria is emerging as a dark horse after they defeated a group that included France and the Netherlands, but the best underdog story of the tournament thus far is that of tournament debutants, Georgia.

The team captained by Willy Sagnol lost their opening game of the tournament to Turkey 3-1; it was an exciting contest that could go down as the tournament’s best game. They subsequently drew 1-1 with the Czech Republic and scored 90 seconds into an incredible 2-0 victory over a heavily rotated Portugal team to secure their spot in the round of 16.

Surprisingly, the Georgia football team did not exist until 1990, when Portugal’s captain Cristiano Ronaldo turned five years old, when the Soviet Union was dismantled. They were also not allowed to join FIFA until 1992.

They qualified for Euro 2024 after 14 unsuccessful tries at qualification, and they will now play Spain for a spot in the quarterfinals….
