We’ve got cricket, F1, rugby, cycling and American sport discussions on here - surely I’m not the only football fan?!
Ireland didn’t qualify for the Euros (and look unlikely to get to a tournament for a very long time) but I’m loving this competition as a neutral. It’s so good having spectators back in stadiums again, even in limited numbers. It’s like a completely different sport from the soulless closed-door football we’ve endured. The emotion and atmosphere at Denmark v Belgium on Thursday was amazing.
Who’s caught your eye so far, a week in? Italy are the obvious stand-outs. Two 3-0 wins playing superb attacking football. France looked good in spells against Germany. And Portugal are real masters of these tournaments.
Scotland were absolutely heroic last night, felt they deserved to win. A great example of how team spirit, passion and organisation can bridge a supposedly big gap in ability. But I think we’ll see a much better England in the knock-out stages.
