EURO U21 Championships, Day 1 / Michael Ballack / Wednesday Open Thread

Bryn Lennon

The first match the EURO U21's starts right now, with hosts Israel kicking off against Norway. While that's not exactly the most scintillating of all matchups on paper, you never know. Could be the next Benayoun playing!

The second match in Group A, in 2.5 hours, is the one most will be concerned with I think, as Chelsea's McEachran and Chalobah (at least one of whom is sure to start, no?) entertain the stacked Italian team.

Meanwhile, there's the Ballack testimonial with all its stars and intrigue. I'm not sure if it's televised in the USA yet, but it has been confirmed for ESPN in the UK at 19:00 BST.

Here's the full preview from yesterday for reference.
