Slovakia continued to be undefeated against Poland and started the campaign with an overwhelming victory, thanks to Wojciech Szczesny’s own goal and Milan Skriniar’s second half goal.
In the 18th minute Slovakia took the lead with Robert Mack’s excellent run, with Polish goalkeeper Szczesny scoring an own goal. Szczesny was the first goalkeeper to recognize the first own goal in Euro history and was also the fastest own goal in the European Championships.
