Germany lost to Spain (1:2) and exited Euro 2024 at the quarterfinal stage, despite being the host nation of the tournament.

With this defeat, the German team continued a sad tradition: for 40 years, host countries are unable to win the Euro.

The last time a host country won the European Championship was in 1984, when France claimed the title.

In regular time, the teams exchanged goals with Olmo and Wirtz, sending the game into extra time. At the end of the second extra time, Merino secured "La Roja" a place in the semifinals.

The opponent for "La Roja" in the semifinals will be determined today. The match between Portugal and France, which started at 21:00 Central European Time, will decide who faces Spain in the semifinals.
