There’s no escaping it – one of international football’s greatest gatherings, the European Championship, has returned after its ritual four-year hiatus, and with a considerable bang well beyond continental borders.
EURO 16 takes place in France this summer, the host nation (and tournament favourite) kicking off proceedings against Romania in Paris tonight. What follows is the mouth-watering prospect of unparalleled sporting excellence and drama, delivered by 24 proud teams (many including the world game’s greatest superstar players) duking it out in six first-round groups for a chance to make the knockout stages and, ultimately, a triumphal march into the capital city for the final on July 10.
The early stages of the tournament promise some fantastic matches. Reigning champions Spain open the defence of their title in Toulouse, June 13, against the Czech Republic. The Belgian team, boasting match-winners all over the park such as Hazard and de Bruyne, clash with a resurgent, ultra-disciplined Italy in Lyon – also June 13. A few days on, England, awash with exciting, youthful talent like Harry Kane and Dele Alli, face neighbours Wales (led by talisman Gareth Bale) in what should prove a fiercely contested showpiece – this epic encounter takes place in Lens on June 16. Elsewhere, footballing giants Germany and Portugal compete alongside championship newcomers Northern Ireland and Iceland.
