There are six matches today. That’s entirely too much football. Fortunately, the Euro matches are played simultaneously, so the overall time spent watching is manageable. But the double screen watching setup makes me feel a different kind of degenerate.
Yesterday, a heavily rotated Italy side beat a resilient Wales team 1-0. Welsh manager Robert Page protected his players on yellow cards by not starting them (but lost Ethan Ampadou to a straight red), and Wales seemed content sit on their four points and goal difference advantage over Switzerland and advance despite the loss. The Swiss beat perhaps the most disappointing side of the tournament, Turkey, 3-1. Turkey was a popular darkhorse pick, and they finished on 0 points and only scored one goal. The Swiss should still make the knockout stage as one of the four best third place finishers, but they’ve got a few days of waiting.
