Euro 2016 is Finally Here!
Posted on June 09 2016
Finally Euro 2016 is upon us and we cannot wait for a whole month of excitement and passion. The tournament kicks off at 20:00pm on the 10th of June, where the hosts France start their campaign against Romania.
Of course we will be rooting for England to finally do well in a major tournament after all these years. It seems as though the squad that they are taking to France could possibly cause an upset. With lots of young talent coming through the ranks such as Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Marcus Rashford, there is certainly potential for a upset to be caused.
England's first match will commence on the 11th of June at 20:00pm against Russia. With the teams England have been grouped with they may feel pretty confident of winning their group as they have to face the likes of Russia, Slovakia and Wales. England will be hopeful of reaching the last 16 perhaps grabbing all 9 points from a possible 9.
At the moment the hosts France are the bookies favourites to win the tournament on home soil. France do normally step it up when it comes to major tournaments so it would not be a surprise if they were to become european champions once again.
So this is finally it, this is what all football fans have been waiting for all year and the time has finally come. Lets hope its a summer of football that we wont forget in a hurry, and who knows maybe England will be the new champions of Europe? We can only hope. COME ON ENGLAND!
