Romania secured an early lead against Ukraine in their EURO 2024 match on Monday, thanks to a goal by Nicolae Stanciu. The 31-year-old midfielder from the Saudi club Damac netted the only goal of the game in the 29th minute of the Romania vs Ukraine game.

Nicolae Stanciu scores stunner in Romania vs Ukraine EURO 2024 game

Ukraine’s defensive error proved costly when Andriy Lunin played the ball into Dennis Man’s feet. Man, a Parma player, swiftly passed to Stanciu, who unleashed a powerful shot that beat the Real Madrid goalkeeper.

This goal marked Stanciu’s 15th in national colours, achieved in his 71st appearance for Romania. Stanciu has a history of contributing to Romania’s success in the European Championships, having provided an assist in the opening match of EURO 2016 against France. His experience and skill continue to be vital for the Romanian team as they compete in EURO 2024.
