After weeks of hype, the summer’s most anticipated international tournament is finally upon us.
Euro 2016’s hosts, France, are led by West Ham breakout star Dmitri Payet, Juventus superstar Paul Pogba as well as Bayern Munich's Kinglsey Coman as they look to secure three points in their opener against Romania.
The Romanians’ 23 man Euro squad features but a few players you'll probably recognize (amongst them potentially colossal 6’8 keeper Costel Pantilimon of Watford), but they'll look to play the spoiler none the less.
Though the World Cup it’s not, it’s hardly unheard of for the European championships to produce even better quality football as the kings of the continent look to dethrone defending champions Spain.
