Spain vs Germany -Spain Stuns Germany with Late Extra-Time Goal in Euro 2024 Quarterfinal

In a thrilling Euro 2024 quarterfinal at Stuttgart Arena, Spain knocked out hosts Germany with a late goal in extra time. Substitute Mikel Merino became the hero with a headed goal, sealing a 2-1 victory for Spain. The match had seen Dani Olmo open the scoring for Spain in the 51st minute, only for Florian Wirtz to equalize late for Germany, pushing the game into extra time.

Spain’s win sets up a semifinal clash against either Portugal or France. The defeat for Germany ended their hopes of a fairytale Euros victory on home soil and marked the conclusion of Toni Kroos’s illustrious international career.

The match wasn’t without drama as Spain’s Dani Carvajal received a second yellow card late in extra time, resulting in a suspension for the upcoming semifinal against Portugal or France. Additionally, Robin Le Normand will also miss the next match due to a booking.

Looking ahead, England will face Switzerland, while Turkey takes on the Netherlands in the other quarterfinal matches scheduled for Saturday.
