By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Netherlands and France played to a scoreless draw in a high intensity match on Thursday at the Leipzig Stadium in Leipzig, Germany in the UEFA European Championship (EURO2024).

While France’s Antoine Griezmann failed to capitalize on two good breaks, Netherlands had a goal ruled out due to an offside. Xavi Simons’ goal was struck off after teammate Denzel Dumfries was judged to be offside and impeding French goalkeeper Mike Maignan from diving for the ball.

The 0-0 draw is the first since the 2020 edition and after a good run of 50 matches.

No team has advanced to the Round of 16 yet but the draw eliminated Poland, who fell 3-1 to Austria earlier.

The two qualifiers will be determined on Matchday 3 on Tuesday, June 25.

Both Netherlands and France with four points each are favoured over Austria, who have three points. However, looking at the pairings, France appear to have an easier road as they face Poland while Netherlands will take on Austria.

In Thursday’s other game, Ukraine beat Slovakia 2-1 in Group F action.

On Saturday, Romania, who have three points, like Ukraine and Slovakia, but from one game, are facing Belgium, who dropped their first game.

Romania qualify with a win, but a Belgium victory would force a four-way tie in points.

A draw favours Romania, but nobody would be qualified until Matchday 3 on Wednesday, June 26.
