Euro Latest 21 July 2016

For the home nations it was a tournament of mixed fortunes, it may have not been great for England, but the Welsh and the Northern Irish have a lot to smile about and the competition as a whole was a fantastic success. There is a changing of the guard which could be beneficial for the English team and they have a lot of rebuilding to do with Sam Allardyce(Big Sam) at the helm, only time will tell if this appointment will bring success. World Cup Qualifiers here we come!

Euro Latest 22 June 2016

After an exciting match between Portugal and Hungary that ended 3 - 3, England finally found out that they would play Iceland in the last 16, who had managed to beat Austria in the last minute of injury time. So to the relieve of the England team they will miss Ronaldo and the Portuguese who have been their downfall in competitions before.
