In the final match of today's Euro Championship match, Italy and Albania are facing off at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. The Italians begin their title defense as the reigning European champions.

The start of the match turned into a real nightmare for Spalletti's men. Federico Dimarco's poor throw-in led to a great opportunity for Nedim Bajrami, who capitalized with a powerful shot into the near corner, leaving Donnarumma no chance.

This goal occurred in the 23rd second of the match, making it the fastest in European Championships history. The previous record belonged to a match at Euro 2004 between Russia and Greece, where a goal was scored in the 67th second.

Interestingly, the Albanian lead did not last long. The current European champions quickly not only equalized but also took the lead. Goals were scored by Inter Milan's players Bastoni and Barella.
