Yesterday

Slovenia was damaged in the 95th minute with Luka Jovic scoring to steal a point for Serbia. Slovenia took the lead in the middle of the second half through Zan Karnicnik. They thought they were recording their first-ever win in the Euro Championship but Jovic had another plan to spoil their party.

Morten Hjulmand’s stunner helped the much impressive Denmark draw 1-1 against the flat England. Harry Kane’s 18th-minute strike put the Three Lions ahead but Hjulmand’s unbelievable strike levelled the score 1-1.

Spain had 20 goal attempts against Italy. Spain launched 50 attacks on Italy. La Roja dominated Italy and made them look extremely bad. Nico Williams was electric on the left-hand side. Calafiori scored an own goal in the second half which made the difference. Spain now looks the favourites per the two games played as they have been extremely exciting to watch.

Today

Ukraine must at all costs avoid defeat against Slovakia in Dusseldorf. The Ukrainians were beaten comprehensively by Romania in matchday one and hence can’t afford to lose once again. Slovakia shocked Belgium in the 1-0 win and a win for them against Ukraine will see the unfancied Slovakians progress to Round 16.

Poland will welcome Robert Lewandowski against Austria. The star striker got injured in the preparation for the Euros and subsequently missed the crucial opening game defeat against Netherlands. Austria was very impressive against France and won many hearts with their fearless display even though lost 1-0. Ralph Rangnick and his lads will fancy their chances against the Polish because a defeat for them will probably end their campaign.

The second biggest game on the stage will be played between the Netherlands and France. All eyes will be on Kylian Mbappe who will wear a protective mask after breaking his nose against Austria. The Netherlands will use this huge game to test the midfield without De Jong and Koopmeiners. The winner will qualify for R16.
