The third day of the Euros bring us the latter half of Group D and the four teams of Group E, with Bayern Munich’s own Thiago potentially playing in Spain’s debut match against the Czech Republic. Superstars Kevin De Bruyne, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Gianluigi Buffon all will see action today playing for their nations.

Spain vs. Czech Republic (Group D)

The first match of the day pits group-favorites Spain against the Czech Republic. Spain may be favored to win the group, but they have looked surprisingly vulnerable lately, losing their final friendly match to lowly Georgia last week. Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara might receive a chance in the midfield, but he faces stiff competition from some of the most famous stars from the Iberian Peninsula - Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fabregas, among others. The main man to watch is Alvaro Morata, whose electrifying performance for Juventus earlier this year nearly knocked Bayern out of the Champions League. One major question is who will guard Spain’s goal: a recent sex scandal surrounding David De Gea has led many to call for Iker Casillas to play instead. Whoever it is, the formidable Petr Cech will be waiting between the posts at the opposite end of the pitch for the Czech Republic.

Republic of Ireland vs. Sweden (Group E)

Belgium vs. Italy (Group E)

The final match of the day, between Belgium and Italy, may be the most exciting. Belgium has been flying high since the World Cup 2014, when it won its group only to be knocked out by the eventual semifinalists Argentina. Can the squad around Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard, and Thibaut Courtois steal points away from a revitalized Italian squad anchored by the legendary Gianluigi Buffon and the back three of Juventus?
