Germany kick off Euro campaign with 2-0 win over Ukraine

Submitted by alvin on Mon, 2016-06-13 10:23 London: Germany began their quest for a record fourth European Championship title with a 2-0 win over Ukraine in their Group C clash on Monday. The world champions produced a good attacking display, but they came under fire defensively in the first half of the match. Striker Shkodran Mustafi put Germany ahead by smashing a header in the 19th minute of the match before midfielder and substitute Bastian Schweinsteiger doubled the lead through an injury-time goal, the Guardian reported. Germany, who have climbed up to the top of Group C standings with the win, will play their next match against Poland on June 17 (ANI)
