Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille, 12.06.2016

2-0 (1-0)
Mustafi 19., Schweinsteiger 90.+2. / –

Germany’s opening match of the 2016 Euros saw them overcome a defensive Ukrainian outfit in Lille, their two teams’ first meeting in a major tournament finals. An early header from Shkodran Mustafi would settle the early nerves, and after a couple of scares at the back an injury-time goal from an off-the-bench Bastian Schweinsteiger would seal the win and ensure a winning start.
