Sweden XI: Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Danielsson, Augustinsson; Larsson, Olsson, Ekdal, Forsberg; Berg, Isak.

Slovakia XI: Dubravka; Pekarik, Satka, Skriniar, Hubocan; Kucka, Hrosovsky; Koscelnik, Hamsik, Mak; Duda.

Slovakia will be through if they can beat Sweden, but the Swedes were stubborn against Spain. Both these sides likely to go for it so it could be a good contest.

I'll go Sweden to win by a goal. Looking forward to Isak up against Skriniar.

Job done by Sweden. 4 points from those first 2 games is a healthy return. Isak with another strong performance.

Croatia XI: Livakovic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Gvardiol; Modric, Kovacic; Rebic, Brekalo, Perisic; Kramaric.

Czech Republic XI: Vaclik; Coufal, Celutska, Kalas, Boril; Soucek, Masopust; Darida, Jankto, Holes; Schick.

Fancy Croatia for this one. I expect a reaction from them and think they'll edge it.

England: Pickford, James, Stones, Mings, Shaw, Phillips, Rice, Mount, Foden, Kane, Sterling.

Scotland: Marshall, Hanley, McTominay, Tierney, O'Donnell, McGregor, Gilmour, McGinn, Robertson, Adams, Dykes.

Would worry for Scotland down their right flank…could see Shaw and Foden making mincemeat of O’Donnell

I think the best we can hope for is putting on a good, spirited display. I fancy England by a couple of goals.

England fans on BBC news - "three or four-nil, England are that good, Scotland are that bad" lol

Most arrogant delusional fans on the planet.

Well done Scotland - you played brilliant for a "bad" team

On paper they probably should be winning by 2, 3 or 4 goals Jess but football isn't played on paper. Scotland gave a great account of themselves especially after our poor showing in the opening game against the Czechs.

Gilmour will be a huge talent and bonus for the national team for years to come.

Someone on one of the podcasts said something a long the lines of England have a lot of very good soloists but you can't always make an a good orchestra out of of a bunch of soloists.

Hard not to agree with that.

Hungary XI: Gulacsi; Botka, Orban, Szalai; Nego, Kleinheisler, Nagy, Schafer, Fiola; Sallai, Szalai.

France XI: Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Digne; Pogba, Kante, Rabiot; Griezmann; Benzema, Mbappe.

Surprised Pavard starts after the backlash about him carrying on after being out cold. Digne for Hernandez is the only French change.

Fancy France by two, maybe three, goals.

Wow, Hungary with the sucker punch.

Sets up the second half nicely.

Griezmann with the equaliser.

I'd expect Hungary to fade in the last 15 minutes like they did against Portugal but they've done well so far

Germany XI: Neuer; Ginter, Hummels, Rudiger; Kimmich, Gundogan, Kroos, Gosens; Havertz, Muller; Gnabry.

Huge game for Germany now

Jota scores. Comeback on? Still 20+ minutes left!

Being served up a treat here with all the goals

Sanches Class shot! Unlucky

Nice to see him playing well. I remember him struggling on loan at Swansea

Good result for Germany, reviving their hopes. Very impressed by Gosens. Portugal looked very vulnerable at the back and I'd like to see Fonte and Dalot come in for the France game. Thought Semedo was awful.

Teams for the evening game:

Spain XI: Simon; M. Llorente, Laporte, Torres, Alba; Koke, Rodri, Pedri; Moreno, Morata, Olmo.

Poland XI: Szczesny; Bereszynski, Glik, Bednarek; Moder; Jozwiak, Puchacz, Klich, Zielinski; Lewandowski, Swiderski.

Moreno starts, but not at the expense of Morata - Ferran Torres is benched. Both sides need the win. I'll go for Spain by a goal

Cracking header by Lewandowski for the equaliser.

This Spain team is awful.

I don't think Spain are too far away from clicking. I think he just needs to get his forward line sorted out. Front three imo should be Torres on the right, Moreno in the centre, and Oyarzabal on the left. Trust the form players.

Wales XI: Ward; Roberts, Gunter, Rodon, Ampadu, Williams; Morrell, Allen, Ramsey; Bale, James.

Mancini takes the opportunity to make a bunch of changes. Verratti makes his first start.

Thought Verratti played well today. Interested to see who Mancini picks in midfield for the round of 16. Nice dilemma to have.

Danny Ward should be looking for a club where he can play first team football

Italy were in 2nd gear there.

Fair play and delighted for Wales and they have a chance of QF spot if they avoid Denmark

Turkey XI: Cakir; Zeki Celik, Demiral, Soyuncu, Muldur; Ayhan; Under, Tufan, Kahveci, Calhanoglu; Yilmaz.

I think the Swiss will have too much for Turkey.

Switzerland take the lead. Lovely low strike from Seferovic. Then Shaqiri with a wonder strike for 2-0.

Brilliant goal by Turkey's Kahveci.

Shaqiri restores the Swiss two goal margin.

Quite a few players ruled out of their nations next game including Scotland's Billy Gilmour who has tested positive for Covid-19.

Thomas Mueller will miss Germany's game against Hungary and possibly the knockout stages. And France have lost the services of Ousmane Dembele for the remainder of the tournament.

Scotland saying there were no close contacts, even though there was a video of Gilmour, Robertson & McGinn playing table tennis together last night.

That is a massive blow. Gilmour was excellent on Friday night.

Hopefully no-one else tests positive and has to miss out.
