The Best (And Worst) Fans Of The Euros So Far

We’re just about halfway through the tournament, and already some pundits have called Euro 2016 one of the more disappointing competitions in recent memory. Teams that were hyped up before the tournament don’t seem to have delivered the spark expected of them, with Germany in particular looking pedestrian. Some have also pointed out the low […]

EURO 2016: Eden’s Return To Form Should Provide Wales With A Hazard Warning!

Belgium ran out impressive 4-0 winners last night against a Hungarian team that had done well previously in Euro 2016. The outstanding performance from Belgian captain Eden Hazard would have raised a few eye-brows, especially in the Welsh camp.

Euro 2016: Team Of The Tournament So Far

So that’s the first round of fixtures finished at Euro 2016. With that in mind I thought it would be a good idea to select a side that has impressed me. I have went for a 4-3-3 formation.  The standout players, so far, have been midfielders with the forwards taking more time to impress. teams […]

Euro 2016: Is Manager Roy Hodgson Really England’s weak link?

I was very surprised to discover that England’s Roy Hodgson was going to be the best paid coach at Euro 2016. The England manager earns a staggering £3.5m a year. That is more than World Cup winning bosses Joachim Low and Vincente Del Bosque. It’s also more than Italy’s Antonio Conte who won three Serie […]

EURO 2016: Can The Unfancied Italians Find A Way To The Final?

I think only the true die-hard Azzurri fans will be watching the Euros with any hope of Italy doing really well this summer. Most believe that the Italians have no hope of winning their first European title since 1968 and that this squad represents one of their weakest at a major tournament. Players like Mario […]

Euro 2016: Harry Kane Taking Corners… Just Bonkers!

ITV asked England’s Harry Kane what his best attribute was before their Euro 2016 opener and the striker simply responded with ‘Finshing!‘.

French Star N’Golo Kante Shines In Euro 2016 Opener

Euro 2016 started off with a bang last night as hosts France finally saw off Romania’s challenge in the Championship’s opener, with Dimitri Payet scoring a screamer in the last minute to secure the victory. Payet was the hero, he was the subbed off to a standing ovation and cried tears of joy as he […]

Kyle Lafferty: Northern Ireland’s Unlikely Euro 2016 Hero

Michael O’Neill almost performed miracles as he guided Northern Ireland to their first ever European Championships this summer.  In an almost equally miraculous feat the manager has also managed to get the very best out of striker Kyle Lafferty. The beanpole forward earned a £3m move to Rangers in 2008, after impressing at Turf Moor with […]
