The campaigns of England and Wales commenced on Saturday June 11 – despite losing to England 2-1, Wales ended up topping Group B, with England having to settle for second place after lacklustre displays against Russia and Slovakia.

Eventually, England would crash out to Iceland in the last 16 – ‘lacklustre’ there would be being too kind. Wales? They captured the imagination of the entire UK, making history by going all the way to the semi-final.

Northern Ireland and Ireland also enjoyed positive campaigns, but ultimately, it’s France and Portugal who’ve made it to the decider, which takes place this week on Sunday July 10.

Whoever you’re supporting during the Euros, you won’t want to miss a second of the action – and you don’t have to.

Even if you can’t struggle down to the pub or get the time off work, it’s pretty straightforward to tune in from your PC or mobile device.
