Friday saw the opening game of Euro 2016 with France narrowly defeating Romania thanks to a brilliant late goal from Dimitri Payet. While the French didn't perform up to expectations, a lot of that could be put down to a pretty nice gameplan by the Romanians to keep them at bay.

Saturday's action sees three interesting games, especially the day's first match.

The match between Albania and Switzerland is one of the most interesting matches in the entire tournament. Five players on the Albanian side were born in Switzerland after the Albanian Diaspora. Four players in the Swiss squad have Albanian ancestry. (For more information on the interesting ancestry matchups thanks to immigration throughout Europe, see this article from Bayerischer Rundfunk.)

The match also features two brothers on opposite teams. Former Borussia Mönchengladbach man Granit Xhaka will suit up for Switzerland while FC Basel's Taulant Xhaka will be playing for Albania.

In a match that is truly a “Best Player vs. Best Player” game, Wales and Slovakia will each play their first ever match in a European Championship. The stars of the show are Gareth Bale and Marek Hamsik. Both countries will be relying on their two stars to carry them in the tournament.

Can Russia stop Harry Kane? That will be the big takeaway from this match as the 2015-16 EPL Golden Boot winner will look to add to his international total against the Russians. At only 22 years old, Kane has made an impact on the English since joining the national team, and it will be interesting to see if he can translate his recent club form to the national team.
