This is the magical moment Albania finally scored their first goal at a major tournament


Obviously we all want our nations to score goals at the Euros - but arguably, no country wanted it more than Albania, who made history on Sunday night by clinching their maiden win at a major tournament.

Unbelievably, Albania had never scored a goal at a major tournament before now, never mind win a game.

And to be honest, after being totally dominated in the first 15 or so minutes against Romania at the Grand Stade in Decines-­Charpieu, near Lyon, it didn't look like that was going to change.

But then, two minutes before half-time, this happened.

This was the moment Armando Sadiku's went in - yeah, the keeper was basically nowhere near to saving it.

And rightly so, it led to one big old celebration - possibly one of the best in France so far.

Albania then went on to defend well for the rest of the game.

And ended up winning 1-0. Which also means Romania are officially out of the Euros BTW. Albania, meanwhile, are still in the hunt to qualify as one of the best third-placed teams, so there could be more excitement to come for them yet...

Yeah, just in case you hadn't got it by now, that goal is a massive deal for Albania.
