Georgia’s path to Euro 2024 was truly remarkable. Their journey to qualification was filled with obstacles, considering that they are not typically known for their footballing achievements. Important wins against opponents with better rankings demonstrated their potential and gave birth to some unexpected shocks later in the tournament.

The Caucasus country, with less than three million people, has done a great job making it to Euro 2024. Some Euro 2024 groups are especially tough, but Georgia might think it has a good chance of pulling off a few wins. They were put in Group F with Turkey, the Czech Republic, and Portugal, who won Euro 2016, so they have a great chance of making it to the next round.

He has been a significant performer for the national team, securing their qualification for their inaugural international tournament and obtaining impressive victories and draws in 33 games. Sagnol has also served as Carlo Ancelotti’s assistant manager at Bayern and managed Bordeaux, a France U21 team.

Key Player

Kvaratskhelia, a key player for Georgia, began his career at Dinamo Tbilisi at 16 and later moved to Rustavi after a disagreement. He gained interest from the Russian Premier League, including a loan spell at Lokomotiv Moscow and a permanent move to Rubin Kazan. In early 2022, he briefly returned to Georgia with Dinamo Batumi before joining Napoli in 2022. His form for Napoli has been sensational, helping them win Serie A last season and maintaining consistent numbers in 2023/24. Kvaratskhelia, nicknamed after Diego, has an impressive 15 goals in 29 international caps.
