Finally the Euro’s have begun and it can’t have come soon enough for me with lots of games to look foward to watching.

Naturally being English I don’t expect that we will win, and expect to knocked out on penalties at some point but I still like watching the matches regardless.

Game 1 saw Italy eventually overcome Turkey 3 goals to 0 but Turkey were doing alright and it was an unfortunate own goal that opened the scoring for the Italians and once they had got the bit between their teeth there was no stopping them. It was not surprising that they ended up the victors when they had not lost before this in 27 games.

In the sweep at work I have got Wales whose first game is against Switzerland. I hope that they can get some point in the bag with this game as Italy will be a hard task for them and Turkey will not be a walk in the park either.
