    France sqeeks by 2-1 on Payet's sweet shot.

    I don't think there are any perfect teams and this is perhaps the most open European tournament in some time:
    France (my favorite to win) struggled a lot with Romania and has a shaky defense. Griezmann is in a funk going back to his missed penalty in the Champions League final.
    Germany saw a couple of defenders retire after the World Cup and has injuries on the defense as well.
    Spain is in transition from its golden era.
    Belgium is 2nd in FIFA rankings but are stuggling to break through into being an elite tournament.

    I am personally rooting for France, Ireland, and Poland.

    I don't root for England very often... but I do when they play Putin's boys.

    LOL at the booing/whistling during the Russian anthem.

    As far as big boys in this tournament goes, I believe France and England have the best shot at winning this tournament. France is just stacked with game changing players, and England is young and extremely talented. Still rooting for my underdogs Sweden and Iceland.

    England played a very solid game but managed to give it away in typical English fashion, Russia equalizing with its only shot on target in the 92'. Wasn't overly impressed with Kane though, I'd go with Sturridge with how fast they're capable of getting up the pitch.

    Sterling was pure garbage, I'd start there

    So close Ireland! We had the chances and should have put one or two more in. It stings a little more knowing that Sweden never put a shot on goal.

    What a performance for Iceland! Hannes Halldorsson had an amazing performance in goal. Easily MOTM for me.

    Hungary with their first Euro victory in 52 years! 2-0 over Austria. Great day for upsets!
