Sweet strike.

Sorry Fletch. I'm pulling for the Scots here. That was too simple for Germany.

Honestly, at the end of the day not much has changed for the Scots. It was always about the Hungary and Switzerland games. Pack the defence in second half, hope you don’t get horsed and keep it under 5.

For sure, it's all about tiebreaker management from the rest of the match today, keep it merely somewhat grim and go again against the less terrifying teams.

They gotta stop playing the line so high though.

Is it true that the Hungary Switzerland game is not on normal TV anywhere tomorrow or am i missing something?

so we have to become fubo subscribers? Wtf is Vx?

streaming is the plague. They are taking a communal experience of my youth and turning it into a niche product.
It was far easier for me to pirate this broadcast. That's a terrible job by whoever handled the rights to these matches.

ViX is a Spanish language streaming service. I got a free account for a youth tournament, maybe the CONCACAF U-20 tournament. I think you need a paid account for the Euros though.

I do wish we could get access to everything in one place, but with the amount of soccer I get to watch now I’m not going to complain. When I was a kid we got maybe one EPL game a week along with a highlight show. We got World Cup games too, but that was about it. Granted, we didn’t even have FOX yet, so there were like 4 channels. Most of my friends as a kid were Sicilian and their families had access to some Italian programming so we all watched a ton of AC Milan. In other words, I’m spoiled now.

Derek Rae's commitment to accurate pronunciation of foreign names despite his thick Scottish accent is always one of the most entertaining bits of international tournaments.

Love the marketing people there!

this is Williams' just 3rd cap?

Should be fun.
With Yamal on the field it’s hard to say this, but Williams is pretty young at 21.The move away from the static players like Torres, a favorite of Enrique due to… relations, has been slow.

Nicely worked goal for the Sons of de Cervantes.

For a fixture with two of the all time kit heavyweights, Spain brought it but this thing that the Croats are running around in is butt-ugly.

Croatia almost pull one back. Hard low shot through traffic, well placed, keeper did great to get to it.

Another oh-so-close moment for Croatia, just failing to connect on a cross to the far post. Could easily be level.

Spain’s back line has been really disorganized, there’s a path back for Croatia if they can just build their attacks a little more quickly
