Denmark 0 - 1 Finland

A match of course dominated by the awful medical emergency experienced by Christian Eriksen.

Belgium 3 - 0 Russia

Pretty much exactly as expected.

Encouraging early signs for England as thusfar every team I’ve hoped would lose has failed to do so.

I share your predictions. Since I am always against anything that has Putin in it, I welcome Belgium's victory yesterday, and I favour the valiant, hard-pressed Ukranians against Oranje. Also, as a matter of course, how could a Moffe ever support the Kaasköppe.

My football hating parents live with us just now, so I'm making a point of watching as many games as I can on the big sitting room TV. Delighted to discover that Copa America is on now too, so after the last of tonight's Euro games there's the Brazil match at ten on iplayer.

ETA - and having gone to France 98 to support them, having been unable to get Scotland tickets, I think I can consider myself a slightly legitimate Brasil supporter.

I tought as much. Fitting FAZ headline: Sterling is worth gold for England... [-o<

1 all in the Schluchtistan vs. North Macedonia match. The Schluchtis' penchant for fucking up is legendary and surpasses even that of our lowly Hertha. Let's see what is next.ö

You are right, of course. William of Orange, and all the ensuing murder and chaos here, means I must cheer for Ukraine. Thanks for making me think more on the matter my friend.

Oh, I saw on that Internet they have now that if Sweden play Denmark then the score in the corner of the TV will say SWE-DEN, and the left over letters would spell DEN-MARK. Maybe I’ve just had too much to drink for a Sunday.

Grrr. I'm sitting in or hospitals youth hostel style appartement for on-call seniors and all I'm looking forward to is takeout burgers. But it's a nice coincidence.

NED 2 - 2 UKR

3 -2 at the 85th. At least, they seem to get their act together. Header with a high B note.

That was an excellent match. Brazil v Venezuela in Copa America for me now.

In contrast to the weekend matches, here's to hoping your predictions pan out. If pressed, I'd probably support Sweden over Spain, Ibra's presence notwithstanding, but that is a very minor disagreement.

As fond as I am of Scandie countries, I used to live in Spain. I'll be slightly supporting them, but won't be rending my garments should the vikings triumph.

Czech Republic 2-0 up against Scotland. Hmmm, either this bodes well for England against Scotland - and I was very pleasantly surprised with yesterday's Croatia game - or badly for us against the Czechs. Let's hope the former.

It was indeed a shame that Netherlands beat Ukraine. Be nice to see Spain beat Sweden though. No great views on the Poland v Slovakia match.

I think Scotland played well on the whole, and deserved to at least draw maybe even win the game. Clear penalty not given at the end of the first half, and the Czech goalkeeper made some great saves. 2nd Czech goal was fantastic, although only made possible by suicidal positioning by our goalie. Need to be able to convert chances into goals.

With that and Slovakia beating Poland, I’m 2 swings and 2 misses for predictions today. Arriba España!

And with Spain v Sweden finishing nil, zero, hee-haw, fuck all each apiece it’s steeeeeeeeee-RIKE THREE for my predictions today.

Argentina v Chile next for me. I’d better dig out my Argentina shirt and see if there’s any corned beef in the house to help salvage some predictor reputation.
