Liberated, Georgia grasped their moment to make history - international media on the Georgia-Turkey match

International media writes about the Georgia-Turkey match on the EURO 24.

“Georgia, also playing in a Euros for the first time, fought valiantly and almost snatched a leveler…

Defeat was harsh on Georgia, who created history was created after Sagnol’s men beat Greece in a penalty shootout in the play-off final back in March”, - writes BBC.

“Liberated, Georgia grasped their moment to make history. Giorgi Kochorashvili started it and ­Mikautadze completed it. In the stands there were tears, in the press area too. Georgia were flying now and nearly scored again immediately, Otar Kakabadze with the headed layoff from which Mikautadze turned wide… Georgia had waited 30 years for this and kept coming, to the end. They so nearly did it too, deep into injury time, every shot a scream”, - writes The Guardian
