Football News: Turkey vs Georgia, Euro 2024 Opener

History is being made in Dortmund on Tuesday afternoon as Georgia plays their first-ever match at a major international tournament. The Group F action at Euro 2024 kicks off with the Georgians, the lowest-ranked team in the competition, aiming to stun 2008 semi-finalists Turkey.

The BBC is providing live coverage of the match for UK audiences, with Guy Mowbray as the lead commentator. Mowbray, a familiar voice for British football fans since the 1998 World Cup, will be joined in the commentary box by former Newcastle United and England midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

Jenas, who has enjoyed a successful second career on TV after retiring in 2014, will be on co-commentator duties for the Turkey vs Georgia encounter at Signal Iduna Park in Borussia Dortmund.

In the studio, Mark Chapman will be the presenter, alongside a punditry trio consisting of former Wales and Swansea defender Ashley Williams, ex-Manchester City and England right-back Micah Richards, and Brentford manager Thomas Frank.

“All eyes will be on the Georgian newcomers, led by their exciting young star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, as they look to pull off a shock result against the more experienced Turkish side in this opening Euro 2024 fixture.”

Football fans across the globe will be tuning in to witness the historic moment and see if the underdogs can deliver a memorable performance on the big stage.
