"So it was, goal Mak just scored a goal," beams the headline in Slovak daily Šport in the wake of Róbert Mak's Group C winner against Ukraine in Kyiv. "This was one of the goals of my life," said the PAOK FC man. It was an indubitably happy Monday for Slovakia, given that a 1-0 victory at section favourites the Netherlands also earned them a place in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship play-offs as group winners. "I will never forget this match," said U21 goalkeeper Dobrivoj Rusov.
