This year’s EUFA Championship will be staged from the opener on 11 June right up until the Final on 11 July, when the top two European nation’s battle for the ultimate prize, and a chance to engrave their country’s name on the Henri Delaunay Cup.
The Euro 2016 will be held across France, and there will be great expectations on the hosts, as well as traditional powers Germany and Spain. Spain are the defending title holders but were knocked out in the round 16 so a new champ will emerge, and you won’t miss a minute of the live action when combining the best of Free to Air coverage with a Trial offer from beIN Sports with Foxtel.
Euro 2016 Finals Preview
The EUFA Championship is the pinnacle of European football competition, with the top twenty-four nations divided into six groups, and competing over four intense weeks to reach the Final on July 11 (AEST). Euro 2016, the 15th edition of this exciting event, promises to be one of the best yet and will be played in France at several cities and towns across the tournament, with the major stadium of course being the Stade de France in Paris.
Host nation France looks the hardest sides to beat here in Euro 2016 Finals and will enter with much momentum. France will play the surprise packet of the tournament, a confident Portugal side that dispensed a stubborn Wales team 2-0 to advance. France will be looking for their record tying third European Championship, and their second on home soil. Standing in their path is a determined Portugal side, who has been to the Finals once before (2004), where they lost 1-0 to Greece in their home city of Lisbon. France is favoured, but don’t look for Portugal to be intimidated as they have nothing to lose and only history to gain.
