Georgia Euro 2024 Squad Looking to Make History

The Georgia national football team is aiming for a major upset at the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament under the guidance of manager Willy Sagnol. Although they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Turkey in their first-ever European Championship match, Georgia impressed with their intensity and guile at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund.

If the Georgians can approach their upcoming games against the Czech Republic and Portugal with a similar mindset, there’s no reason why they can’t escape the group stage and potentially progress to the knockout rounds, or even pick up a point or two along the way. Two of the three goals they conceded against Turkey were contenders for Goal of the Tournament, while the other came in the final moments of the game after goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili had ventured upfield in a last-ditch attempt to find an equalizer.

Mamardashvili is a highly competent goalkeeper, but he may be overshadowed in the Georgia squad by Napoli star Khvicha ‘Kvaradona’ Kvaratskhelia, the undisputed superstar of the group and a player capable of producing match-winning moments. This promises to be a summer of a lifetime for the former Soviet republic, as they defied the odds to beat Greece in the play-off semi-finals and secure their first-ever qualification for the European Championship.

The scenes of jubilation at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena in Tbilisi, with players mobbed by ecstatic fans, were a testament to the country’s passion for the game. Georgia is not just here to make up the numbers, and with one genuine superstar in Kvaratskhelia and a top-class goalkeeper in Mamardashvili, who knows how far they can go in the competition?
