Group F: Hungary v France, 2pm (Budapest)
France is expected to win this game from Paul Pogba, but Hungary’s home advantage means it may not go smoothly.
Group F: Portugal v Germany, 5pm (Munich)
Bruno Fernandes can show that he is a real big player by leading Portugal to an away win in Germany. It’s easier said than done, and this should be a great game.
Group E: Spain v Poland, 8pm (Seville)
