Euro 2020 last 16 fixtures - 8 Matches: Schedule, Kick-off time, Venues, How to Watch - TV Channel

Saturday, June 26

1.Wales vs Denmark (5pm) - Amsterdam

How to Watch: Noon ET, ESPN

Denmark’s win against Russia has been the best moment of the tournament by far. With star player Christian Eriksen recovering from the frightening cardiac arrest he suffered on the field in Denmark’s first game of the tournament, Denmark beat Russia 4-1 to assure themselves a spot in the knockout rounds after losing to Finland and Belgium to start group play. Wales, meanwhile, finished second in Group A after tying Switzerland and beating Turkey.

2.Italy vs Austria (8pm) - Wembley

3 p.m. ET, ABC

Italy has been one of the two most convincing teams of the tournament so far. The Italians scored seven goals in their three group stage games and didn’t give up a single goal. Austria beat Ukraine and North Macedonia to easily advance to the knockout rounds.

Sunday, June 27

3.Netherlands vs Czech Republic (5pm) - Budapest


The Netherlands ran rampant over Group C. The Dutch scored the most goals of anyone in the group stage (eight) and posted shutouts in their last two games after beating Ukraine 3-2 to open the tournament. The Czech Republic got through as the third-place team in Group D thanks to a tie against Croatia and an opening win against Scotland.

4.Belgium vs Portugal (8pm) - Seville

3 p.m. ET, ABC

What a perfect game for a Sunday afternoon on network television. Belgium is the No. 1 team in the world according to FIFA’s rankings and Portugal are the defending European champions. The Belgians have Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne while Portugal’s attack is centered around the indefatigable Cristiano Ronaldo. A goal against Belgium makes Ronaldo the man with the most international goals ever.

Monday, June 28

5.Croatia vs Spain (5pm) - Copenhagen


Croatia got off to a slow start with a loss to England and a tie against the Czech Republic but defeated Scotland to finish second in Group D. The reward is a game against Spain after Spain tied its first two games of the tournament. Spain made up for all its wasteful chances against Sweden and Poland by scoring five goals against Slovakia on Wednesday.

6.France vs Switzerland (8pm) - Bucharest

3 p.m. ET, ESPN

France will probably be the biggest favorites in the Round of 16. The defending World Cup champions got a win and two ties in the group stage while Switzerland beat Turkey on Sunday to ensure their participation in the knockout rounds. France is pragmatic and can also score in the blink of an eye. Just ask Portugal.

Tuesday, June 29

7.England vs Germany (5pm) - Wembley


Whew, what a matchup to begin the last day of the Round of 16. Germany got through to the knockout rounds by tying Hungary in the final minutes on a Leon Goretzka goal. England is looking for its first major trophy since winning the 1966 World Cup. Both teams have expectations that are perhaps larger than they should be and there will be a lot of questioning in the loser’s home country.

8.Sweden vs Ukraine (8pm) - Hampden Park

3 p.m. ET, ESPN

It’ll be a gorgeous battle of gold and blue kits at the very least. Sweden doesn’t play the most attractive soccer but scored three times against Poland to win Group E ahead of Spain. Ukraine has been one of the more fun teams of the tournament and it’s cool to know that one of these two teams is guaranteed a spot in the quarterfinals.
