The UEFA European championship informally known as Euros kicked off its 2020 edition of the tournament on Friday the 11th of June, 2021 and is expected to run through to the 11th of July, 2021.

This year’s tournament is the 16th UEFA European championship and has been an entertaining one since Iran official kick off.

However, history has been made as Wojciech Szczesny becomes the first goalkeeper ever to score an own goal in the history of the tournament.

Wojciech Tomasz Szczęsny is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Serie A club Juventus and the Poland national team. After starting his club career at Legia Warsaw, Szczęsny signed for Arsenal in January 2006, where he made his professional debut in 2009.

The Group E match fixture between Poland and Slovakia ended in the favor of Slovakia beating Poland by two goals to one.


The polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny scores an own goal in the first half, 18th minutes of game play to be precise, which makes the first ever goal keeper to score an own goal in the history of the Euros.

A hilarious record it is.
