Re: Euro 2016 Thread

France going to be doomed, ultimately, by their attack.

Though i really really want to see their midfield go up against Spain's.

@OptaJoe
2 - Olivier Giroud has completed just 2 passes in the 1st half & 1 of those was kick-off. Periphery. #Euro2016 #FRA

That's a solid start for France there.. Payet MOTM, very very good in the 2nd half.

They should be all set to make it out of the group now

Swiss with the win.

Nervy day for me now, with my Welsh and English sides both at it.

Three LFC players starting for Wales. The most nervous of whom will be Danny Ward in goal, with just his first start in goal for the Red Dragons.

Still not sure how Hamsik didn't score. Great run though.
