    The tournament is only 10 days away.....time to get talking.

    TV Coverage for those in Canada is on TSN. In the US, games broadcast on ESPN.

    The Euro 2016 Wiki has tons of great information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2016

    ...and just so you all know I will be supporting England once again. With their young, fast, attacking squad they will be fun to watch but will cause many a heart palpitation with their shaky defence.

    I have to think Germany will win, however, Belgium has to be considered with a chance. A usual Portugal will fail and Ronaldo will underwhelm. Italy, France and Spain each have the teams strong enough to win but will they be able to play well together (especially Spain). The rest will be also rans and will contain an spoiler or two.....can't wait to watch, let the overacted diving begin !!!!

    I have been rooting for Italy in all tournaments since about 1970,so I will continue in that vein.I think your analysis is spot on.I know that the quality of the football will be far inferior,but the Copa America tournament starts on on June 3rd with the USA vs. Colombia.You can have no expectations for the American side other than they will probably disappoint.Just to clarify I'm American and heartily root for Team USA.

    24 teams this year, yuck.

    Germany are a bit of a mess defensively but still can win it. I give Belgium the dark horse nod, and throw Iceland in as a surprise Cinderella story.
