    So when we kickstarted the discussion on the round of 16, little did we know of the surprises we will be presented as we inched closer to the round of 8! Let's do a quick recap, of what has transpired thus far

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Wales 0 - 4 Denmark

    Regardless of the form, Gareth Bale had in the EPL, he couldn't take his team to victory. A bitter disappointment for many, as he showed no signs of that earlier form we mentioned as Dolberg's double strike took Denmark to the next stage.

    Italy 2 - 1 Austria

    Italy was one the favorites to start with, and it ended that way. Austria gave it a heroic fight but alas, Italy's substitutes Chiesa and Pessina ensured they saw Italy through.

    Netherlands 0 - 2 Czech Republic

    It was a total collapse for the Dutch, who never seemed to be in the game, and the red card that sent Matthijs home didn't help. Tomas and Patrik saw their side through with a goal each.

    Belgium 1 - 0 Portugal

    Belgium took one shot at the target and Hazard with his stunning long-distance kick ensured the ball hit the back of the net. Thus ended the dreams of the defending champions, and what many reckon, Ronaldo may have played his last Euro.

    Croatia 3 - 5 Spain

    What started as a disastrous comical own goal for Spain, ended with a goal fest for them! Try as much as they might, Luca Modric's side garnered 3 goals but Spain went through with 5!

    France 7 - 8 Switzerland (3-3 and penalty)

    France looked like they would see themselves through, after Benzema's double strike and a stunning penalty save from their keeper. But the Swiss bounced back to level the scores and ensured they hit the goal with every chance they go in the penalty shootout. A shocker miss that was, by Mbappé which is going to be hard for the French to digest.

    England 2 - 0 Germany

    Captain fabulous Kane scores and England, for the first time since 2005, has won a match in the EURO by a margin of more than one goal! Germany never looked to threaten the Brits in any capacity, as the home fans rejoiced.

    Sweden 1 - 2 Ukraine

    A red card and an extra-time goal at 120+1' by Dovbyk dropped the final nails into the coffin for Sweden.
