When and Where To Watch The Home Nations At Euro 2016
We are only two days away from the start of Euro 2016 which means we are in for a footballing feast over the next 4 weeks. All of the group games will kick off at either 14:00, 17:00 or 20:00 – which means you get to watch one at work, one straight after work and one in the evening. For the first time in a very very long time, we have got four of the home nations (including Ireland) competing in the tournament (sorry Scotland).
We have compiled a handy list of when and where you can catch all of the home nations games in the group stages. From this list, the only game that needs prior planning is the England vs Wales game which kicks off at 14:00 on Thursday 16th June. And to help with that we will have a special little feature for you tomorrow.
Whilst England and Wales have been draw together, both should safely pass through the group stages with the top 3 progressing. However, both Northern and Republic of face tougher tests. Northern Ireland really need to win their first game against Poland and again, you would think that Republic of Ireland would need to beat Sweden to stand a chance of progressing!
