Euro 2024: Arda Guler shines with historic goal in Turkey’s 3-1 win over Georgia

19-year-old Turkish sensation Arda Guler, made headlines with a remarkable performance as Turkey earned a 3-1 victory against Georgia in Euro 2024.

Guler, who recently joined Real Madrid, demonstrated his immense potential by scoring a stunning goal that has left football fans and pundits in awe.

Despite enduring an injury-riddled debut season at Real Madrid, Guler showcased his talent by ending the campaign with six goals in 12 appearances.

His performance in the international stage, however, has taken his reputation to new heights. Playing at a soaked Signal Iduna Park, Guler’s first-half display was exceptional.

He created the most chances (three) and completed all 29 of his passes, a feat unmatched by any other player on the pitch.

The highlight of Guler’s performance came in the second half, when he scored a breathtaking goal from 25 yards out, curling the ball into the top-left corner.

The strike, hailed as one of the best goals of Euro 2024, was praised by former England defender Alvin Martin, who called it his “goal of the tournament.”

With this goal, Guler became the youngest player to score on his European Championship debut at 19 years and 114 days, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 19 years and 128 days set in 2004.

His remarkable performance earned him the Player of the Match award and a standing ovation from the crowd.

European football expert Kevin Hatchard had previously highlighted Guler’s potential, describing him as a “lovely attacking midfielder” who plays with no fear and is an excellent crosser with both feet.

Guler’s goal and overall performance against Georgia have justified the €20 million Real Madrid paid for him and have established him as a player to watch in the future.

Turkey’s victory was further cemented by a sweet volley from Mert Muldur, which opened the scoring after 25 minutes. Guler’s contribution ensured a positive start for Turkey in the tournament, leaving fans excited about his future performances.
