The Round of 16

For many, this is when the tournament really begins. The group stages did throw up some dramatic games, but because 16 of the 24 nations playing in this tournament qualify for this stage, we have yet to see much jeopardy for the top nations involved.

Below are the full set of fixtures for the last 16:

Switzerland vs Italy (Berlin,18:00)

On Tuesday, the Italians were looking at the prospect of elimination straight in the face. It was looking like Croatia would pip them to second place until Mattia Zaccagni scored a fabulous goal in the 98th minute. The scenes were glorious for the Italians, while Croatia and their best player of all time, Luka Modric, were left with feelings of heartbreak.

Germany Vs Denmark (Dortmund, 21:00)

Germany versus Denmark is the second game confirmed for the Euros Round of 16. The knockout match will be played at Signal Iduna Park, the home stadium of Borussia Dortmund, this year’s Champions League finalists.

Spain vs Georgia (Cologne, 21:00)

This Spanish side were supposedly in the group of death. However, someone should have informed them of this since they won all three games and conceded no goals.

England Vs Slovakia (Gelsenkirchen, 18:00)

England fans were extremely hopeful heading into this tournament. Let's be honest; this is for good reason. Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, and Phil Foden are just some of the players England fans are pinning their hopes on.

France Vs Belgium (Düsseldorf, 18:00)

Belgium and France were expected to top their groups and make a smooth entry into the round of 16. While their performances were not the worst, they finished second in their groups and now face each other in the knockout stage.

Portugal vs Slovenia (Frankfurt, 21:00)

Portugal headed into this tournament as one of the favourites, boasting a squad rich in talent and experience. Under the leadership of manager Roberto Martinez, they were able to win their first two games, playing the attacking football they have become associated with. This afforded the manager the luxury of resting some of his key players, which should result in a very fresh-looking Portuguese outfit.
