Many of the teams that came in with the chance to win the title have already been eliminated. The list goes on and on in France, Germany, Portugal and the Netherlands. The performance of some of the younger teams in the tournament where the giants fell was also notable. This will include the name of Finland, who made their debut and came close to qualifying for the quarterfinals. In addition, Hungary is one of the few countries in the world that has literally fallen into the death trap. They belonged to a group consisting of world champions and Euro champions and surrendered after shaking them all. In addition, the Euro Group stage witnessed some memorable comebacks. Denmark entered the quarterfinals with a stunning performance from the brink of defeat in the first two games of Group B.
The excitement doubled as the group entered the stage and reached the quarterfinals. The pre-quarter stage, the scene of the Super Fights, also witnessed some exciting coups. France, the reigning world champions, lost to Switzerland in the semi-finals. The other was the Czech Republic’s check to the Netherlands, who had won all three matches in the group stage. Apart from them, the super teams Germany and Portugal could not overcome the challenges of England and Belgium and win the quarter berth. The overall picture of the quarterfinal fight became clear when Ukraine overtook Sweden in the final yesterday.

The two teams will meet to share their experience of winning the first quarter finals. Spain defeats Croatia and Switzerland defeats world champions France. If Spain stay in good form after scoring 10 goals in the last two games after the first two games without conceding a goal, the Swiss team will be confident of beating France.
The next match can be described as the super fight of the quarter. It is impossible to predict who will take the lead in the clash between Belgium and Italy, who have shown authentic performance to reach the quarterfinals. The goal is for the team consisting of players from Belgium’s golden generation to win the title. Italy, on the other hand, is on a dream journey under Roberto Mancini. A fierce battle will ensue as the two clash. The injuries of Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, their super-talents, have put Belgium in crisis as they prepare to face Italy.
The next match is between two teams that can be called the black horses of the tournament. Denmark, who initially struggled in the fall of their superstar Eriksen but then battled hard, and the Czech Republic, who came with coup power, are on the horn. Fighting to the quarterfinals, Denmark are trying to make their dream of winning the title again in 1992 a reality.
England and Ukraine face off in the final quarterfinals. Ukraine will enter the match with the strength to fight to the end as England set out to make up for the loss of not winning a title since 1966. Since they were able to shake the Dutch column in the group stage, England will have to think of something against them.
