The Euro 2016 kicks off today at the Stade de France, Saint Denis, France. The host nation France meet Romania in the opening game of the tournament, with 51 matches to take place over the next month to crown Europe’s champion. Didier Deschamps’ side are among the favorites and with talented attackers such as Anthony Martial, Antoine Griezmann, Dimitri Payet and Paul Pogba running the show in midfield, why can’t they go all the way? Romania will plan to be the party poopers but anything other than a convincing home win would be a shock. But isn’t that what football is all about. We are expecting a grand opening ceremony for the competition today. There are other teams who would pose a threat to France lifting the trophy. World champions, Germany have a stand as well as Roy Hodgson’s England team which is made up of a lot of youngsters most notably Manchester United’s break out star, Marcus Rashford.
Else where in the world of football, the COPA america continues with Chile VS. Bolivia and later we would have Argentina VS Panama in Illinois, Chicago. Argentina is expected to progress with a win tonight.
