WATCH: Dutch fans go wild after Cody Gakpo scores equaliser vs Poland in UEFA Euro 2024

In their UEFA Euro 2024 opener against Poland in Group C at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg, when Cody Gakpo scored the equaliser for the Netherlands in the first half, the fans were spotted having a wild celebration at the venue and the fan zone. With that, Poland and Netherlands went into half-time with a 1-1 scoreline, hoping to push for a winner in the second half to take an early lead in their group.

The goal-scoring moment happened in the 29th minute when Cody Gakpo cut in off the left before taking a shot past three defenders, only to deflect off one of them into the back of the net past Wojciech Szczesny.
