Which eight teams will make it to the quarter-final stage of Euro 2016? England have an easy-looking tie against Iceland on Monday evening, although their failure to beat Russia or Slovakia means that Roy Hodgson’s team could struggle against a team with little to lose.

Switzerland meet Poland on Saturday afternoon, with the Poles slight favourites to claim the first last eight berth, while Wales and Northern Ireland then clash on Saturday evening and we fancy the Welsh to beat their fellow Home Nation.

Croatia and Portugal then meet in the final Saturday game, with the Croatians having stood out for mostly right reasons in this tournament and the 2-1 win against Spain really rocked the applecart.

On Sunday afternoon, France meet with Republic of Ireland, with the hosts yet to convince and they might find life tough against a dogged side who beat Italy to claim a spot in the last sixteen.

Germany are strong favourites to meet Slovakia, with Die Mannschaft still among the tournament favourites although the Slovakians know how to defend and we could see the game go to extra-time.

The same applies to Hungary who were rightly top of Group F after three games and they could put Belgium to the sword given the right ammunition.

On Monday, we will be treated to two fantastic-looking matches. Italy will bring their best players back to face Spain, with the Azzurri beating Belgium during the group stage and they can’t be ruled out considering Antonio Conte is such a good manager.

England then meet Iceland on Monday night, with the Three Lions playing the winner of the Republic of Ireland v France match if they can overcome a side who are ready to try and cause an upset.
