Euro 2016 finals dates and fixtures schedule – key dates for Euro 2016

Euro 2016 starts on 10 June, with the final taking place in Paris on 10 July

Four teams left at Euro 2016, with Didier Deschamps insisting that his French side will attack Germany when the teams meet on Thursday evening.

“We showed in the second half against the Republic of Ireland and here, against Iceland, that we’re playing better now than we were,” said Deschamps.

“Look, Germany are Germany. They’re the reigning world champions and one of the best sides at the European Championship. They had a scare against Italy in the quarter-final but other than that, they’ve been in control of all the games they’ve played.

“But it won’t be a stroll in the park for them: we’ll go all out for it. We’re playing in France, our own country, and we’ll go all out for it. We have to remember anything is possible.

“It will be a totally different match on Thursday. The Germans are the world champions and they’re often in the last four of major tournaments but, as a group, we have a lot of desire to try and get our own back for what happened in the World Cup.

“We beat them here in a friendly match, winning 2-0, back in November but it will be completely different in Marseille. We’re playing a European semi-final in front of a home crowd. I’m proud of what we’re achieving. I hope we come out with the right result once again.”

The bookies are struggling to split Germany and France for the clash in Marseille, although Portugal are firm favourites to get the better of a Wales team who are missing Ben Davies and Aaron Ramsey.

Ramsey is suspended for the clash, although the same applies to William Carvalho and Wales have spent the tournament surprising the opposition. Their win over Belgium saw them come from a goal down and they must have a chance against a defence-minded Portugese side.
