Real Madrid and Turkey midfielder Arda Guler expressed his desire to bring joy to his fellow Turks by giving his best performance against Georgia in his debut match at the Euro Cup.

Before the tournament began, Guler was already considered one of the standout players to watch. 

Now, after scoring an incredible goal in his first match, he is living up to the hype and capturing everyone’s attention. This young Turkish talent is already making a significant impact in his first major tournament with the national team.

“I wanted to bring happiness to people here. There is incredible love for me and I work hard to give it back. I hope I can do that,” said the young Turk after the match as quoted by Aksam.

Guler’s moment came when the game was tied 1-1 in the 69th minute. He seized a loose ball, advanced towards the goal, and unleashed a powerful left-footed shot that flew into the top corner. 

The Georgian goalkeeper was caught slightly off guard and had no chance to stop the ball. This crucial goal helped secure a 3-1 victory for Turkey, earning them three points in Group F.

Meanwhile, following his perfect performance, Guler posted a picture on Instagram and fellow Real Madrid teammate, Jude Bellingham, commented on it, saying that he is not surprised by Guler’s display.

Guler broke Cristiano Ronaldo’s record

This remarkable goal is also historic. At 19 years and 114 days old, Guler became the youngest player to score in a Euro Cup final phase, breaking the previous record held by Cristiano Ronaldo, who made his mark in Euro 2004 at 19 years and 128 days old.

“I don’t care about personal achievements. All I care about is the team and I am happy to do my part.” added the youngster.

“I will work hard and score goals like these. I feel incredible. I’ve always dreamt of this goal.”

Guler’s performance not only contributed to Turkey’s victory but also highlighted his potential as a rising star in the football world. 

His ability to make a significant impact in such a high-stakes tournament at a young age speaks volumes about his talent and promise for the future.

Meanwhile, he also revealed that Carlo Ancelotti sent him a text before the match, wishing him luck.

“Our coach Ancelotti sent me a message and wished me success. Real Madrid’s support also motivates me a lot. We need to give credit to everyone here. It was an incredible atmosphere.”

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
