Twenty-four teams are playing across 51 matches in 12 cities, the European Championships aka The Euros is underway, finally.
It all ends at Wembley Stadium with the final, which takes place on Sunday July 11.
England enter the tournament as one of the favourites to lift the trophy. The Three Lions will have home advantage for the group stages, with their last 16 game (should they win their group) and then the semi-final and final, if they get that far. This could be England’s best chance since 1996 of lifting the trophy for the first time… fitting that 25 years on from it’s chart debut, Football could actually be coming home!
