All 8 teams left in Euro 2016, quarter-final fixtures

Of all the 24 teams that qualified for the 2016 European Championships, only eight are left.
Following the conclusion of the round of 16 on Monday, big names like Spain and England have exited the competition.

The quarter-finals kick off on Thursday, with world champions Germany, Portugal, Iceland, Belgium, etc in the race to win the tournament.

Poland take on Portugal in the first round of 8 fixture on Thursday at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille. The Poles booked their place, after defeating Switzerland 5-4 on penalties, while Portugal needed a late, late Ricardo Quaresma winner in extra time to see off Croatia.

On Friday, Wales will battle Belgium in Lille for a place in the last four. The Welsh saw off fellow Brits, Northern Ireland 1-0, while Eden Hazard inspired his team to a 4-0 battering of Hungary in the round of 16.

The ‘final before the final’ comes up on Saturday between Germany and Italy. Joachim Low’s team are yet to concede in the tournament, while the Azzuris have proved that class is permanent, surging ahead against all odds and with relatively unpopular names.

On Sunday, hosts France play Iceland, who shocked England out of the Euros. The game will be played at the Stade de France.
