Euro 2016: FourFourTwo's Singapore Bulletin, Day 17
Day 2 of round of 16 action is upon us and it's time for tournament hosts France, world champions Germany and No.2 nation Belgium all in action.
Poland, Wales and Portugal triumphed and progressed to the next round earlier on Saturday and Sunday and will be eagerly watching the action unfold to see who they get drawn to face.
After looking decidedly off-colour so far this tournament, it's time for Didier Deschamps' men to show they have the mettle to deliver to the expectations of a demanding home support.
Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann must translate their form for their club to their country now, as must Germany's stars, who are still seeking a truly convincing performance.
Their opponents Slovakia can strengthen their claim as one of the tournament's dark horses by progressing to the quarter-finals at the expense of Joachim Low's troops, with the likes of Marek Hamsik capable of exploiting any uncertainty.
Hungary, meanwhile, will not be looking forward to facing a Belgium side led by a resurgent Eden Hazard, who is finally starting to look like his former self alongside his fellow Premier League star, Romelu Lukaku.
Be sure not to miss a single minute of the action and coverage of Euro 2016 as it unfolds, right here with FourFourTwo!
