France v Germany - UEFA Euro 2020: Group F Photo by Andre Weening/BSR Agency/Getty Images

Another day, three more Euro 2020 matches. It’s going to be weird when the final round of group stage matches start and there are four per day, two sets of two kicking off at the same time. Then once we get to the knockout stage, there will be GASP days without matches at all. But today, we’ve got the usual three.

Today’s matches:

Hungary vs. France, 9 am ET, ESPN
Portugal vs. Germany, 12 pm ET, ESPN
Spain vs. Poland, 3 pm ET, ABC

Yesterday, Sweden beat Slovakia in a bit of a snoozer. Croatia drew the Czech Republic 1-1. The Croats don’t seem to have near the magic that saw them reach the World Cup Final in 2018, and I suspect it’s in part to missing Ivan Rakitic in the midfield as a steadying presence that frees up Luka Modric. It probably also doesn’t help that Modric is three years older, either.

And in the big one, the one we waited all day for, England drew Scotland 0-0. It was a fantastic performance from the Scots — they were disciplined, organized, and shut down England’s attack. They were helped by Harry Kane looking well off the pace, and Gareth Southgate’s stubborn refusal to play Jadon Sancho.

The Euro 2020 matches will be streamed stateside on ESPN+ and FuboTV.
