Euro 2016: FourFourTwo's Singapore Bulletin, Day 16
A mammoth Euro 2016 round of 16 is officially set to get underway today as two sides tipped to be dark horses of the tournament open this set of fixtures!
Bayern Munich star Lewandowski has looked off-colour this tournament and will need to return to his goalscoring best if his nation are to get the better of their opponents, who can rely on Arsenal arrival Xhaka to direct the game with Swiss precision from midfield.
It'll then be Wales' turn to showcase their mettle as they take on Northern Ireland post-Brexit, and Gareth Bale will relish the opportunity to take his nation – still in triumphant mood after topping Group B at England's expense – to the next round.
With everything to play for as Euro 2016 starts getting serious, be sure not to miss a moment of action as FourFourTwo brings you all the news and stories that matter!
