After 13 days of great international football on display, we have reached the end of the Euro 2020/1 group stage. Of the 24 teams in the competition, 16 of them have made it to the knockout stage either by finishing first- or second-place in one of the six groups in the tournament, or by being one of four best third-placed teams across the group stage.

Matches will be played from Saturday, June 26th until Monday on the 28th, either at 17.00 or 20.00 BST. There will be seven different venues hosting the games, with Wembley Stadium at London receiving two matches instead of just one.

There are a few matches that carries a lot of promise to fans of the teams involved and to neutrals. One of which is the matchup between Belgium and Portugal on Sunday at 20.00 BST in Seville, Spain, with the talents of several former Chelsea players such as Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois up against the defending Euro champions.

Another great match is England’s encounter with historic rivals Germany on Tuesday at 17.00 BST, with Wembley as the venue. Their last clash back in November 2017 also took place at Wembley, with the then friendly match ending in a goalless draw between the two sides.

The full round of 16 stage is as follows:

Wales vs. Denmark - Saturday, June 26, 2021, 17.00 BST - Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Italy vs. Austria - Saturday, June 26, 2021, 20.00 BST - Wembley Stadium, London, England

Netherlands vs. Czech Republic - Sunday, June 27, 2021, 17.00 BST - Puskás Aréna, Budapest, Hungary
