Spain, Sweden, Slovakia and Poland are in a tricky boat. All four teams look good for the next stage. Sweden striker Alexander Isak can dribble, run and cause excitement and panic on the counter. Well played Spain and Sweden.

Almost all the games before this had been refreshingly open and pacey affairs.

I managed 5 minutes of Spain v Sweden. I find Spain's style of play too boring to watch and consider their affection for gravity when touched to be detrimental to the sport. I expect to be seeing more of them in the later stages of the tournament.

Sweden did well hanging on. Getting a point off Spain may be key to progressing.

Spanish fans shouldn't worry. Their current team has plenty of ability. Portugal, whom I also avoid watching for the same reasons, may have an even better side than in previous tournaments. They are not so dependent upon Ronaldo. They have quality all over the place. Both teams should do well if they can dominate possession and control the pace of the game.

Don't read too much into first games. Footballers are human too, and can get nervous in big tournaments.
