Plenty of drama yet again on Saturday, as Switzerland hang on for a win against Albania, Wales score a goal and record a (lucky) win in an international tournament for the first time since 1958, and England contrive to produce a disappointing result for the first time since the last time they played in a major tournament (2014).

And then, in the late games over in America, Colombia and Costa Rica throw caution to the wind and entertain with five goals while 10-men USA grit their way to a 1-0 win over Paraguay and first place in Group A.  Here's DeAndre Yedlin with the most bone-headed one (1) minute you'll likely to see all summer long, resulting in the US having to play basically the entire second half one man down.  (Watch Klinsy's reaction; he knew it.)

Couple big hitters in action today with Germany and Brazil.

TURKEY vs. CROATIA

When:  14:00 BST; 9am EDT
Where:  Parc des Princes, Paris
On TV:  ITV 1 (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  ITV Live (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who/what to watch for: A match-up of two teams who have at times surprised greatly on the international stage, though this is certainly no Euro 2008 version of Turkey, then the comeback kings until their eventual loss to Germany in the semifinals.  Their comeback against the Czech Republic that year, via a Petr Cech howler is one of my more painful memories in international football.  Croatia, meanwhile, once finished third in a World Cup and currently boast a midfield featuring key Real Madrid and Barcelona men in Modric and Rakitic.  They'll be worth watching just to see what those two could accomplish.

POLAND vs. NORTHERN IRELAND

When:  17:00 BST; 12pm EDT
Where:  Allianz Riviera, Nice
On TV:  BBC One (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  BBC iPlayer (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who/what to watch for: Lewandowski.  Oh, and Will Grigg's on fire.  Defenses on both sides will be terrified.

GERMANY vs. UKRAINE

When:  20:00 BST; 3pm EDT
Where:  Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille
On TV:  BBC One (UK); ESPN, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online:  BBC iPlayer (UK); ESPN3 (USA)

Who/what to watch for: The defending World Cup champions, who also just happen to have the second youngest team at Euro 2016, are alone worth the price of admission.  Our boy Andy Shirley is back, too, ready to be the most glorious impact sub once again.

ECUADOR vs. HAITI

When:  6:30pm EDT; 23:30 BST
Where:  MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
On TV: Premier Sports (UK); Fox Sports 2, Univision (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online: Fox Soccer 2Go

Who/what to watch for: Haiti have already been eliminated.  Ecuador, who have managed two draws so far need a win to make the knockout round and face the USA.

BRAZIL vs. PERU

When:  8:30pm EDT; 01:30 BST (next day)
Where:  Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
On TV: Premier Sports (UK); Fox Sports 1, Univision (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online: Fox Soccer 2Go

Who/what to watch for: The winner finishes top of the group, the loser's likely to go home (unless Ecuador fail to beat Haiti, who are really bad).  Brazil looked uninspired in their first match but did light up Haiti for seven goals on Wednesday.  Which Brazil will show up today?
