MOTD Live: UEFA Euro 2024 – Turkiye v Georgia (BBC One, 18 June 2024)

Match of the Day

An eagerly awaited match between Turkiye and Georgia takes place at the BVB Stadion Dortmund on Tuesday 18 June for the UEFA Euro 2024. This Group F encounter marks Georgia’s inaugural appearance in a major finals, having defeated Greece in a play-off final to secure their spot.

The episode, airing on BBC One, captures the excitement as Georgia, nicknamed the Crusaders, make their debut on this stage. They overcame 2004 champions Greece in a tense penalty shootout, winning 4-2 after a goalless game.

Meanwhile, Turkiye aims to advance beyond the group stage for the first time since their semi-final run in 2008. They have qualified for their third consecutive Euro finals, topping a challenging group that included Croatia and Wales. However, their recent record in the tournament has been less than impressive, winning only one out of six games and scoring just three goals across those matches.
