Low's new Germany comes at a price


England embarrassed, holders Spain out, Euro 2016's round of 16 exits

With the round of 16 over, eight teams are going home. Here's a look back at each of their Euro 2016 campaigns.

Click on each country's name for an in depth view on what happened in France.

CROATIA: Croatia played the most exciting football of the group stage, ironically, only to get kicked out in perhaps the most tedious game in Euros history. -- Alex Holiga

ENGLAND: Until the Iceland game, the word to sum up England's Euro 2016 campaign was "frustrating": after it, "embarrassing" was more accurate. They looked disjointed throughout, and while there were moments of hope in the group games, they were dashed in the knockouts in the most abject fashion. -- Nick Miller

HUNGARY: A sad day for Hungarian football, but a proud one - to go out like that is disappointing, but to even think Hungary had a chance is testimony to how far this team has come over the past two weeks. -- Tomasz Mortimer

NORTHERN IRELAND: Michael O'Neill's players and the country's boisterous supporters were ousted by a cruel own goal and Gareth Bale's impact but were a superb example of how spirit, preparation and diligence can impact in major tournaments. -- Julian Taylor

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND: A fantastic and ultimately heart-breaking roller-coaster with the prevailing mood after each game going - one and done; useless and hopeless; unbeatable and heroic; unlucky, plucky and proud. -- Ewan MacKenna

SLOVAKIA: Slovakia fulfilled their pre-tournament goal: to advance from a tough group. Everything else would be something extra, and you cannot beat Germany, the world champions, in every match (and they did it in May). -- Lukas Vrablik

SPAIN: Spain failed to defend their title as Vicente del Bosque did not find the right mix between old guard and new blood. -- Ed Alvarez

SWITZERLAND: Switzerland did pretty much what was expected of them, no less, no more. Though Xherdan Shaqiri's stunning overhead kick against Poland will give them some fond memories. -- Brian Homewood
