Ukraine were involved in one of the games of the tournament so far as they came from two-down to equalise against the Netherlands, only for Denzel Dumfries to win it for the Dutch late on.
North Macedonia, meanwhile, were beaten 3-1 by Austria in their first ever major tournament game, though they showed more than enough to suggest they won’t be the whipping boys many expected.
