Euro 2024 moves into knockout phase with Round of 16 fixtures now confirmed


After a pulsating first 12 days of unmissable UEFA EURO 2024™ action, the tournament now moves into the knockout stages with 16 teams advancing from the groups to face do-or-die clashes, with the first match being played on Sunday, June 30 at 2am (AEST). 

Spain are the only team to qualify with a 100% record, winning all three of their games without conceding a goal and have become tournament favourites in the process. Defending champions Italy needed a last-gasp equaliser in their final group match to seal their safe passage, while pre-tournament favourites England are being criticised for their performance so far, despite topping their group.

  • Tuesday kicks off with a heavyweight clash between France and Belgium with both teams eager to put an underwhelming group stage behind them.
