Day 11 at the European Championship is upon us as we look ahead to Group B and C being decided.
Sunday saw in-form contenders Italy beat Wales in Rome to secure top spot to set up a last-16 tie against the runners-up in Group C – either Ukraine or Austria. Switzerland could only beat Turkey 3-1, meaning Wales finished second on goal difference.
We are treated to four games on Monday as Netherlands look to hold on to top spot by earning at least a point againt North Macedonia, while Ukraine face Austria face off in Bucharest for second place, the loser having a nervy wait to see if they are one of the best four third-place finishers.
We’ll also have all the latest news from the England camp as the fallout continues from Friday’s stalemate with Scotland at Wembley and attentions turn to Tuesday night’s Group D decider against the Czech Republic.

Here’s where we stand…
FT! Italy 1-0 Wales, Switzerland 3-1 Turkey
That’s it – Italy win Group A, and Wales qualify for the last-16 as runners-up!
That’s a terrific result for Wales in a tough group, and they will travel to Amsterdam for their knockout game this weekend.
Group A latest
Wales are losing 1-0 and down to 10 men after Ethan Ampadu’s red card, while Switzerland lead Turkey 3-1.
The Welsh are still second as things stand, but a two-goal swing to the Swiss now with the same results would see them leapfrog Wales into second place.
Switzerland would probably need to win 5-0 and also hope for Wales to lose to Italy… but the Swiss are going for it.
Xherdan Shaqiri has just scored a worldie from long range, and they lead 2-0.
Group A latest
Bad news for Wales as Haris Seferovic has given Switzerland an early lead against Turkey.
Wales remain second as things stand, but would drop to third if they concede against Italy and the Swiss bag a few goals…
The final round of Group A games are underway…
Donnarumma to leave Italy squad to complete PSG deal
Gianluigi Donnarumma is set to be given permission to leave the Italy squad on Monday morning to undergo his Paris Saint-Germain medical.
The goalkeeper is reportedly set to sign a five-year contract with PSG worth over €10million per season after leaving AC Milan as a free agent after refusing to sign a new contract.
Sky Sport Italia claim PSG will carry out medical checks on him in Florence, close to where the Italy squad is based for Euro 2020.
‘Leave Christian alone!’
Holland defender Daley Blind has criticised pundits for speculating over Christian Eriksen’s future in football following his cardiac arrest.
Eriksen was discharged from hospital earlier this week after he had an operation to fit a heart-starting device.
Ajax star Blind also has an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) after suffering from heart problems in the past.
Blind said: “When this happened to me, the whole world was telling me I was finished as a player, that I would not be able to play again.
“Look where I am today. This is why I say to everyone, “Leave Christian alone!”
“I felt I was ready and I felt comfortable to return once I got the green light from the doctors in the hospital and the medical staff at Ajax.
“There was no reason why I could not play at the top level again. The most important thing is that you have to feel free in your head.
“I had no fear. I was just incredibly happy that I was allowed to be part of the squad again and to be back in the team.
“Once the doctors tell you that you are OK to play again, you only feel the tension and excitement of playing, not the tension of fear.”
