France projected to win Euro 2016

Five Aside

Will Germany, Joachim Low stick with what's working or tweak vs. Italy?

Germany have never beaten Italy in international competition, can they turn that around on Saturday in Bordeaux?
Lukas Podolski is doing all he can to impress Joachim Low, but the manager outdid him on one occasion.
Germany prepare to take on a confident Italy side, following their 2-0 victory over the reigning European champs.

If "Angstgegner" (German for "bogey team") was the watchword after Italy (unbeaten in eight tournament games against the Nationalmannschaft) secured a quarterfinal meeting with Joachim Low's team, the eve of the match in Bordeaux was dominated by something called "Geheimniskrämerei" -- extensive secret-mongering both in and by the Germany camp.

The German FA received permission from UEFA to hold their last training session at their base in Évian, rather than at the stadium in Toulouse,...

Italy's Antonio Conte on brink of new tactical era, Germany stand in his way

Mattia De Sciglio praises head coach Antonio Conte's sense of leadership throughout Italy's successful Euro 2016 run thus far.

Antonio Conte is well aware of the challenges Italy face in Bordeaux when they meet Germany in the Euro 2016 quarterfinals on Saturday.

"We'll need a titanic effort against Germany," the Italian manager said after his team's 2-0 last-16 win over Spain.

Italy vs. Germany is a massive match, undeniably the biggest of the quarterfinals, and carries with it a rich and extensive history. This is not merely about either side's past as heavyweights of international football. The winners of Euro 2016 will...

Euro quarterfinals: Germany, France favourites as we hit the business end

Relive the epic heartache, late victories and historic feats that led up to Euro 2016's quarterfinals.
ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Steve Nicol predict the Euro 2016 quarterfinal fixtures.

PARIS -- And then there were eight.

It doesn't matter if, like Germany or France, you expected to reach the Euro quarterfinals. Or if, like Portugal, with zero wins in 90 minutes, you're not quite sure how you got here except sheer bloody-mindedness. Or if, like Belgium, you lost your footing early and then recovered. Or if, like Iceland, Hollywood scriptwriters are knocking on your door wanting to chronicle the greatest upset since ... well, since Leicester City won the Premier League this season.

The strengths and weaknesses of Euro 2016's quarterfinalists

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Steve Nicol predict the Euro 2016 quarterfinal fixtures.

Ahead of Euro 2016's quarterfinals, no team has announced itself as true favourites in France -- so what are the remaining eight sides' strengths and weaknesses?


Strength: Adam Nawalka's side have shown they are far more than just Robert Lewandowski. The Bayern Munich striker has not even scored a goal yet, though he has taken a frightful kicking from opponents (being fouled 16 times) as he takes the brunt for the greater good. Kamil Grosicki has been outstanding on the flanks, and Paris-Saint...
