Euro Qualification Secured by Slovak Team Amidst Disruptions Caused by Bosnian and Herzegovinian Fans During Heavy Rainfall in Luxembourg

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s national team suffered its sixth defeat in the qualifiers for the Euro, leaving them without a chance to play in Germany. Sava Milošević’s team was defeated 4-1 by Luxembourg in their final match, with Olesen taking the lead for Luxembourg in the 6th minute and Rodrigues scoring from a penalty spot at the end of the 30th. BiH fans protested fiercely against the referee’s decision and briefly stopped the match by throwing flares onto the field.

Mujakić gave Luxembourg a 3-0 advantage with an own goal, but Gojković managed to score an honorary goal for Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 94th minute. However, Rodrigues scored his second goal for Luxembourg just before that, securing a final score of 4-1.

Slovakia qualified for the European competition for the third time (and the third in a row) as an independent country thanks to their home victory over Iceland. The guests took a 1-0 lead, but Slovaks scored four goals in a row and conceded one more, finishing with a final score of 4-2. Along with Slovakia, Portugal also secured their place at Euros in Germany earlier and today on road in Liechtenstein they achieved their ninth victory with Cristiano Ronaldo (46′) and Joao Cancelo (57′) scoring for Roberto Martinez’s team.

Montenegro also remained in contention for Euros after winning against Lithuania with Kuča (3′) and Jovetić (48′). Montenegrins need to win against Hungary and Bulgaria’s celebration in Serbia to secure their historic first performance as an independent country at Euros.
