  • So here we are, at the last 16 stage. It's been an interesting tournament and one that is hotting up. The 3-3 draw between Hungary and Portugal has been the most lively game so far. Hungary have surprised many people and it's great that Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and England are through to the last 16.

    Portugal not going all out for a win against Hungary, and Iceland scoring an injury time winner in their game, ensured that England will no play the smallest nation at the tournament, Iceland.

    Perhaps this is a chance . . .

  • We're now at the stage where some countries have already qualified. The managers have some big decisions to make. Do they want to top their group? Should they rest their better players for the final match in that group? I will be interested to discover the starting line ups for some of those matches. It could alter how I bet.

    Since we last communicated on the football front, England beat Wales with a late winner in a 2-1 victory. I admire how Wales defend and the passion of their supporters. I hope they beat Russia.

    England won because . . .

  • Euro 2016 Football Tips Wednesday & Thursday June 15 & 16th

    By on 15th June 2016

    What have we learned these past few days?

    Italy are back! They may not have won an opening match in a competition for 16 years going into Euro 2016, but they have now. Italy were impressive in the manner in which they swept aside a Belgium side made up of some talented individuals.

    The Italians never take friendlies or prep games seriously. Now they are a serious threat at Euro 2016 and may well make the semi-finals at least.

    And we learned that Portugal have not changed their spots. Going back to the days of the great Eusebio, Porugal . . .

    So Wales played with pride, defied the critics who gave them no hope, their supporters were a credit to the country and - as predicted - their talisman Gareth Bale scored. At 13/8 and 6/5 he was the first winning match bet for me of this tournament and one I felt confident would pay off.

    I toyed with betting on him to score first at odds of 4/1. Some VG Tips members did that, the clever people! But i decided to play safe and simply up my stakes and bet on him to score at any stage. It took . . .

    So the tournament began with a late win for the hosts, France, against Romania.

    A cracking last ditch strike from the talented Payet ensured France got all three points. West Ham will be fortunate to hold on to Payet. Clubs from around the world will be sitting up and taking notice of him.

    At the time of writing, on Saturday, England have yet to play Russia and Wales will come up against Slovakia later in the day.

    Long term followers know that I tend to avoid betting on England. Experience has taught me not to trust them . . .

  • The European Championships kick off in France on Friday. The host country may be under water but some players, and at least one team, will prove they can walk on water. But which?

    The hosts will fancy their chances. Hosting a World Cup or Euros is usually a big advantage and the bookies have installed France as the best price 10/3 favourites. What do I think? Which country do I fancy to win the tournament? What particular bets will carry my money for the next month?
