At the start of the tournament, Wales and Northern Ireland both would’ve been pleased to escape their EURO 2016 groups.

The mixed-up bracket now has them dreaming of the final.


Saturday’s Noon ET Round of 16 match sees the winner moving on to face the winner of Belgium and Hungary, two sides who will be playing on one less day’s rest than either Wales or Northern Ireland.

Norn Iron goalkeeper Michael McGovern has been one of the stars of the tournament so far, making 16 saves in the group stage, but Wales’ Gareth Bale joined a select group of players to score in all three games of a group stage.
