The match in Dortmund between Italy and Albania was the final game of today's Euro 2024 action. The reigning European champions secured a hard-fought victory and predictably took all three points.

The start of the match was sensational: Nedim Bajrami put Albania ahead just 23 seconds in, scoring the fastest goal in European Championship history. Italy responded swiftly, and by the 16th minute, they were already in the lead.

According to the Dailysports team, Nicolo Barella, who scored one of the goals, was named the best player of the match. The Inter Milan leader reacted well to a rebound and, with a powerful first-time strike from the edge of the penalty area, sent the ball into the net.

The 27-year-old midfielder is a key player in Luciano Spalletti's tactical setup. The team's play revolves around him, and no attack is complete without his involvement. At the club level, Barella played 45 matches in the recently concluded season, scoring 2 goals and providing 4 assists.
