Today’s Fixtures – Monday 13. June13th Jun 2016 |
This is a match day that is full of very exciting and important fixtures for all teams. The day will open with Spain against Czech Republic, and only victory can be good enough for Spain. They will certainly make a huge effort to make up for the total failure in the previous World Championship. And Czech Republic won’t go with in an offensive style, as that will mean a certain failure against a Spanish team’s strong attack.
The match between Ireland and Sweden is the most important in the group stages, for both teams. They are both expected to lose against Belgium and Italy, and that means that a draw might be catastrophic for them.
But the match that attracts the most excitement is Belgium – Italy. Both teams are considered to be outsiders with a decent chance of surprising and taking the trophy back home. They are in rather different positions, however. Italy is a football giant in a small crisis, while Belgium is considered to be a giant in the making. This means that both teams have a lot to prove to the world, and a victory here will be a giant step towards a successful championship for both of them.
