    In case anyone is interested , here are the groups. France won the opener against Romania with a gorgeous left footer from Payet, probably one of the goals of the tournament already.

    Thanks murat. I'll be following for sure.

    My team Wales has qualified for it's first major championship since 1950 and as luck would have it we've been put in the same group as England. I see the England fans have been on the front pages again for the wrong reasons.

    Germany are my favourites to take the whole thing. I'm guessing you're rooting for Turkey?

    For sure, I hope they do well, but Germany is my favorite as well. Wales had a great qualifying tournament.

    Great win for Wales - our first in a major competition since the 1950s... 2-1 over Slovakia.

    Are the rumours true that a football game broke out during the fighting between England and Russia fans?

    Typical Hodgson negativity cost England. You're dominating the match with minutes to go, and you put on a defensive player. Russia had posed no threat in the half. He should have taken Sterling off who was rubbish all night. No end product, and put Vardy on. Attack is the best form of defence

    Yep, never understood why Hodgson got the job in the first place... his club resume is very ordinary and he was plain dreadful at the only big club he ever managed (Liverpool)... very negative and way too cautious.

    I don't know if it is all the rain France got recently or what, but the pitch qualities as far as I can see on TV are really bad...

    England pulls it off...it was some bad goalkeeping there I thought.
    I do not like this England team that much man. I do not like the first touches, the technique. It is like they are lacking some fundamental ball skills. And they are lacking creativity. Maybe I am just not used to some of the guys yet.
    Too bad for Wales. Very unlucky first goal, and a really bad one in stoppage time.

    Wales qualify from the group with a 3-0 win over Russia.

    Good win from the Turks over the Czechs but might be too little too late...

    Pleased for Turkey, and I hope that keeps them in. A bit of a shocker with Croatia beating Spain. Now Spain will play Italy, which is a shame, as they're two of the best.

    Yeah, one of the big guns to go. I'm a bit disappointed by the tournament so far other than Wales winning Group B. It doesn't seem to have caught fire.

    I haven't seen a lot of matches, but via the press, it's been somewhere between bad-tempered, ill-behaved and dull. Credit to Croatia today, who looked like they were going to protect the tie and live with it, and then went for it. But Spain and Italy have been playing some of the prettiest football of the tournament, and one will go out this weekend.

    Hungary-Portugal was one of the most entertaining matches of the tournament so far. 3-3 will take both of them to the next phase.
