The 200% Podcast 64: Euro 2016, Week One

by | Jun 19, 2016

Good morning everybody, and first of all many apologies for missing a week with our podcast last week. The European Championships – well, any major football tournament – place a great strain on our resources and, with matches being played between two o’clock in the afternoon and ten o’clock at night every single day, we were unable to find a gap in our schedules for it last weekend. With matches being played at a slightly steadier pace from now on, we should be able to get back to normal starting with today, a round-up – of sorts – of the first week of this week’s matches.

We’re focused largely on the match between England and Wales that was played last Thursday, but there are plenty of other items up for discussion, including our favourite moments of the tournament so far and Cristiano Ronaldo’s post Iceland match interview. There haven’t been many goals so far – at least, it has felt that way at times – but is this a reflection of the tactical fashions of the modern game? And what of England? Are they as bad as the most savage of their detractors claim them to be, or do they have a chance of getting to the latter stages of the tournament after all?
