We have reached day eight of these European Championships and the second round of the group stage is in full swing.

The Netherlands reached the round of 16 alongside Italy thanks to a 2-0 win over Austria. Memphis Depay and Denzel Dumfries both scored two wins for Twin in a convincing performance.

Earlier in the day after Ukraine beat North Macedonia, substitute Kevin de Bruyne scored a goal before scoring the winning goal to give Belgium a 2-1 win over Denmark.

England will face Scotland at Wembley on Friday as the two Auld enemies face each other. But first they go to Group E, in which Sweden plays against Slovakia before Croatia wants to play against the Czech Republic.

To the bar!

Fans of England and Scotland are forecast to buy 3.4 million pints during today’s game.

The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) estimates 14.8 million pints to be sold across England and Scotland on match day, of which over 3 million were sold during the game itself.

However, the trade association warned that beer sales will be reduced by nearly 850,000 pints due to Covid-19 restrictions, including social distancing, rule of six and no standing.

This would result in a loss of around £ 3.2 million in sales for pubs across England and Scotland.

UK Beer and Pubs General Manager Emma McClarkin said: “Whether you support England or Scotland, nothing beats watching the game in the pub.”


Netherlands into the last sixteen

Memphis Depay and Denzel Dumfries each scored one goal to give the Netherlands a 2-0 win over Austria and a place in the round of 16.

The Netherlands failed to qualify for the last two major international football tournaments, but they won both games of Euro 2020 in Group C.

Depay scored a penalty in the 11th minute to score his 27th goal in 66 international matches. Dumfries scored his second goal of the tournament in the 67th round after a selfless pass from PSV Eindhoven’s team-mate Donyell Malen.

Austria played without the suspended striker Marko Arnautovic.

Good Morning!

It’s day EIGHT at the Euros and all eyes will be on Wembley tonight.

Here is the location of the country …


Southgate makes Maguire decision

Southgate said Harry Maguire will join the squad after having been out with an ankle injury since May.

The boss said, “Harry will be involved tomorrow, the decision we have to make is whether he is ready to go.

“We are very happy with his progress, he has been training with the team for four or five days and has shown no reaction.

“He’s on a really good way. We want everyone to be available, that leads to difficult decisions, but we have 26 players on the training field and that’s a great position to get involved in. “


Southgate: England are focused on the result, not Scotland

England coach Gareth Southgate says his side is focused on qualifying from Group B rather than the emotions of the game against Scotland.

The Auld Enemy will visit Wembley on Friday for a tough Group D clash, with a win for England that practically sealed their entry into the knockout stage.

“We know we have to compete or else you can get overrun in every game,” said Southgate.

“Our focus has to be that the performance gets better with every game we play.

“It’s a big event for the fans and us, but it’s another chance for three points and our goal is to qualify. We have to focus on that.

“We have done this very well in the past. We did that on Sunday, Sunday was a big event for everyone and we managed it very well. “


Kane: Eriksen in all of our hearts


Southgate: Maguire will be involved


FT result: Denmark 1-2 Belgium 1-2

Belgium international Kevin de Bruyne scored one goal and scored the winning goal himself to secure a 2-1 win over Denmark in a Euro 2020 game marked by an emotional tribute to Christian Eriksen in the first half.

De Bruyne came after half-time for his first appearance since his face fracture in the Champions League final and equalized Thorgan Hazard in the 55th minute. Then he hit in the 71st minute with a low shot from outside the box.

It was Denmark’s first game since Eriksen’s collapse and the hosts got off to a breakneck pace in a wild Parken Stadium when Yussuf Poulsen hit the far post with a low shot in the second minute.

After 10 minutes the players of both teams stopped the game as the 25,000 fans stood up for a minute with thunderous applause to pay tribute to Eriksen, who wears the number 10 for Denmark.
