The statistics on 2024 Euro day 18 (1 July) - Round of 16 

France vs Belgium 1-0

*In his probably last game for Belgium, Jan Vertonghen (capped 157 times, more than any other player in the “Red Devils” history), committed his only own goal in his international career.

*Vertonghen (aged 37 years 68 days) became the oldest player to score an own goal at the Euros.
He is the first-ever Belgian to do it at the tournament. 

*France's both victories in this Euro have been achieved thanks to own goals (also in the game 1-0 vs Austria from Wöber).
Strangely, their unique victory at the previous edition (2020) was as well 1-0 (vs Germany) with an own goal (Hummels).
France's last victory in the Euro with their proper goals was against Germany in 2016: 2-0 with goals from Griezmann.

*France have benefited from their 5th own goal at the Euros, more than any other team. 
“Les Bleus” are also the team whose opponents have scored the most such goals at the World Cups (6). 

*France’s proper players are yet to score from open play at Euro 2024 despite having already 47 shots. 

*There are 10 own goals already at Euro 2024; the same number as at the whole Euro 2020.
The previous 15 Euro editions have seen only 12 own goals combined.

*France have won all 5 their games against Belgium in major tournaments (World Cups, Euros), including:
3-1 at World Cup 1938 (playing at home),
5-0 at Euro 1984 (also playing at home),
4-2 at 1986 World Cup (match for third place),
1-0 at 2018 World Cup (semifinals).

*Belgium have not beaten France in any competitive match since 1981 (2-0 at home in the 1982 World Cup qualifier).

*N’Golo Kanté (France) has now played most Euro games (12) without losing in the competition’s history; he surpassed Xavi’s record (11).

*Kante is now on the longest unbeaten run by any European player in major tournament history (World Cups, Euros) - 19 games (13 wins, 6 losses).

Portugal vs Slovenia 0-0 (penalties 3-0)

*Pepe became the oldest player (41 years 126 days) to appear in a World Cup or Euro knockout game, breaking Peter Shilton's record.

*Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score in each of his last 8 appearances at major international tournaments (4 in World Cup 2022 and 4 in Euro 2024).

*Cristiano Ronaldo has attempted at Euro 2024 so far:
more shots (20) than any other player (the next are Mbappe and Havertz with 15),
more shots on target (9) than any other player.
Only 4 players have taken more shots without scoring at a single Euro tournament (Deco 24 in 2004, Hierro 23 in 1996, De Bruyne 21 in 2016, Olmo 21 in 2020).

*Cristiano became the first player who has missed 2 penalties in Euro (not counting shootouts): against Austria in 2016 (hit the post) and now against Slovenia (stopped by Oblak).

*Cristiano has missed 3 of his 9 penalties in World Cups and Euros (th one missed at World Cups was against Iran in 2018).
His success percentage (67%) in major national team tournaments is well below his career average (85%).

*Cristiano’s penalty vs Oblak was the 100th awarded in the final stages of the Euros (not counting shootouts): 69 of them converted, 31 failed.

*It was the 2nd missed penalty in Euro extra time after the one Harry Kane missed against Denmark in 2021.

*8 of Portugal's 16 matches in Euro knockout stages went to extra time.

*Portugal’s Diogo Costa is the first goalkeeper in Euro history:
to save 3 penalties in a shootout series,
to concede 0 goals in the shootouts.

*It was shortest shootout series (6 penalties) in the Euro history. 
The previous record was 7 penalties in the 2008 game Turkey vs Croatia (3-1).

*Slovenia is the first team that does not convert a penalty in a Euro shootout.

*Slovenia is the first team in the history of the Euros and World Cups to leave the tournament with 4 draws in 4 games.

*Slovenia is the winless team with the most matches (7) in the Euro finals (6 draws and 1 defeat).
