And Wales could reach the final!

Okay, so after an incredibly dramatic finish to the group stages for certain teams (Ireland in particular) we have now reached the knock-out stages of the tournament, we started with 24 and now have 16 therefore we lost 8 teams along the way, fortunately (or unfortunately, however you look at it), no one has escaped the group stages with 3 teams (curse you Norwich City!!!!!!!!!!), and we have some seriously juicy games lined up for you, starting with Switzerland vs Poland and finishing in an almightly clash between the smallest country in the tournament and the most English, Iceland vs England.

I do *sometimes* support Britain/British teams just because they're from my country. I'm just not always reliable at that!
