The match began for the reigning champions.

The Italian national team defeated Albania in the 1st round of the group stage of the European Football Championship 2024, which takes place in 10 cities of Germany from June 14 to July 14. The meeting at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund in Group B ended with a score of 2:1.

The match started shockingly for the reigning continental champions. Albanian Nedim Bayrama opened the scoring in the 23rd second. The Sassuolo attacking midfielder took advantage of Dimarco's mistake and scored the fastest goal in the history of the European Championship.

Albanian fans rejoiced at their team's success for only 10 minutes. With an interval of 5 minutes, Bastoni and Barella turned the game around, securing the victory for the Azzurri.
