Internationals
England 1- 2 Holland

England sent their b team out - I still can't get my head around Milner as a midfielder (how?) and Captain.

Holland won this match - the Nike template for their kit really annoys me

Ah, the referee was Spanish? LOL, say no more.

Vardy was the fox in the box. I was impressed by Vardy in terms of link up and effort. Drinkwater was average, and Milner shouldn't even have been called up.

Honestly, watching the Leicester and Spurs (and better LFC) players on Saturday versus the primarily Everton players last night, I can see why coaches stick to certain teams in their domestic league and have outliers from other teams. For instance, why Spanish teams mostly had Barcelona and Real Madrid players, or Germany had mostly Bayern Munich and some Dortmund players. To go from the intensity of Spurs and Leicester to the slow build up Martinez' Everton style (and Milner's uninspired turn at anything) was a contrast of fail. I think the starting XI revealed themselves on Saturday, tbh. Oh, and sod off to those red socks. This Nike kit is tragic

When will Depay be great? Or even good? I'll take good. I do want him to win. Don't be another Balo!

France 4- 2 Russia

Payet is on fire. France is my team for the Euros in terms of them winning it, to be honest.

Payet's wonder goal! Love how the Russian goalie were like WTF?

N'golo Kante scored as well. Happy belated birthday to Payet and Kante!

Portugal 2- 1 Belgium

No to this Portuguese kit. That's a colour you find in hospital waiting rooms, or the scrubs that doctors wear. What is this, Nike? What is this?

The Lukaku brothers played on the same Belgium team and celebrated a goal! Alderweireld withdrew from squad duties with illness, so the Belgium defence was makeshift (but still better than England's).

Did Fellani elbow anyone else this time?

Germany 4- 1 Italy

After a shock defeat, a rebound. Meh to this German kit though. After the decent effort for WC 2014, Adidas couldn't be arsed for this one. Three stripes on the s--- *yawn*

Götze supposedly scored. I... guess

Uh oh...

Scotland 1- 0 Denmark

Oh at Agger and Schmeichel. Oh, oh, oh!!! That was a horrible miscommunication

The Danish kit looks almost the same as the Welsh kit. Whyyyyy?

OP: Done! Cheers, jeers, corrections and commentary pushback. Bye!
