Spanish team fought for the winner’s Delaunay cup. The game was successful for Spain, it defeated the Czechs. And late in the evening in Lyon, Italy competed with Belgium. Our column "Euro 2016 Chronicles" will tell you everything that happened during the day in the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.
Match of the day
Belgium - Italy. Antonio Conte recognized that Belgium might look very respectable, but Italy was more successful and more experienced. Belgians showed a good game, and two missed goals indicated that they deservedly lost.
Goal of the day
Here we have an amazing combination of the Irish and the Swedes. Seamus Coleman went down the right wing to the front line and gently pushed the ball in the area of the penalty point. Wes Hoolahan was already there; he spectacularly shot Isaksson.
Save of the day
Thibaut Courtois has saved his team for several times. Immobile and Pelle would exactly remember their unrealized moments.
Surprise of the day
The best attack of the Euro 2016 - I mean Belgium – did not result into a goal in the match against Italy. Buffon took everything, and where he was powerless, the ball flew over.
Disappointment of the day
The Spanish team did not show its title game. One error in the defense decided everything, and the Spaniards did not show their strongest advantages. If they have them, of course.
Fight of the day
Thank God, today in France, there were no fights out of the field. But on a green lawn, one squabble definitely happened. The Irish and the Swedes made a good get-together and did not even hesitate to beat each other's legs. As it often happens, the fate awarded the fighters equally.
Shock of the day
Belgium has a very fashionable team. Radja Nainggolan came with a new hairdo, Marouane Fellaini supported him, and Origen has dyed his hair. It did not help them to win though.
Mistake of the day
A few hours after the match Poland vs. Northern Ireland one of the British fans died in France. 24-year-old fan died after falling from a railing at Castel Plage, on the Promenade des Anglais. According to local law enforcers, the fan was drunk, and he fell down on the stony beach. Yeah.
Photo of the day
Black clouds over the Stadium of Light in Lyon. Crimson sunset.
Hero of the day
Gianluigi Buffon is 38 years old, and he had come to Euro 2016 not as a tourist. He is soul and heart of Italy. The fantastic game he did not leave a chance for Belgians.
Anti-hero of the day
Ciaran Clark was marked with the first own goal in this Euro. In an attempt to interrupt the transfer of Ibrahimovic in the penalty area, he sent the ball into his own net. So the score was 1:1, and Ireland has lost the victory.
