Montenegro had a rough time against Scots at first match of Mini Euro but managed close victory 3:2. Hosts had better start and scored through Alibabic in tenth minute but that just woke Scotland up, as they scored two quick goals with Hagen and Andrew. Experienced Mrđenović than equalised after good action to even things at half time. In second half Montenegro were perhaps on top but the goal came after two great chances for Scotland that man of the match goalkeeper Mirotic saved with great efforts. Mrđenovic was again man on scorers list with easy finish and later Mirotic took care of all chances that Scotland created

Moldova was good enough to score a goal in last moments of match against Israel through Valutza to achiev great victory in first round in group D. Israel created some chances in opening minutes but Moldova scored with clever move from Soimu. In second half Israel was trying to found net and that happened ten minutes from the end when Podolsky scored. In dying moments of game, first minute of additional time, Valutza scored glorious header to put Moldova along side Montenegro on top of group
