Happy Euro Day!! And some Copa America action too.

Finally! Euro 2016 is here to save us from the mediocre play and half-filled stadiums of Copa America Centario. Not to say there aren’t things to like about Copa America, but the Euros are pretty much the best international competition outside of the World Cup.

This year’s tournament is being hosted by France, a squad that is in the midst of a pretty special generation of players that have a legitimate shot at winning the whole thing. No doubt there will be much pride to play for their national colors given all of the awful things that have happened in Europe this past year.

Sticking to football, Les Bleus have big names all over the pitch: Tottenham’s Hugo Llloris is in goal. West Ham's Dimitri Payet and Manchester United’s (???) Paul Pogba will be patrolling the middle of the pitch. And Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and Arsenal’s Oliver Giroud will be trying to score the goals. There is even more star power to talk about, but you get the picture.

SB Nation’s France full preview

The French will be taking on Romania to open up the Euros. Not a whole lot of recognizable players here. Their top two goalkeepers are Ciprian Tătăruşanu (Fiorentina) and Costel Pantillimon (Watford) and their top two defenders are Vlad Chiricheş (Napoli) and Răzvan Raţ (Rayo Vallecano). Outside of that, you would have to be REALLY soccer-mad to know too many guys.

Copa America

Yes, it is still going on. And there are two more group stage matches today. Yesterday's final scores were Uruguay 0-1 Venezuela and Mexico 2-0 Jamaica. So, Uruguay and Jamaica have been eliminated from the competition. All that is left to decide in group C is who will be win and who will come second. Venezuela and Mexico face each other next week in a winner-take-all scenario

Today, the focus turns to Group D; probably the most talented group in the tournament. Everton player alert!!! Ramiro Funes Mori will be suiting up for Argentina again late this evening. Before that, Chile will be looking to take three points from Bolivia, setting them up for a match with Panama next week to decide who advances.
