Football. Bloody hell. Ireland beating Italy with four minutes left on the clock to send us through to the last 16. Sure, there were 15 other teams that made it through, but none smaller than Irel – what do you mean Iceland got through?!
Yes, the last 16 is upon us which always brings up the possibility of a shock result or six. We’re back to the afternoon kick off’s as well! Saturday sees Wales and Northern Ireland collide in Paris in a game only your crazy uncle Dan predicted would happen. That’s sandwiched between Switzerland against Poland and Croatia against Cristiano Ronaldo.
Once again we’ve asked our four experts to give us a correct score bet and after questioning Mick McCarthy’s prediction of a 1-0 Ireland win against Italy, we don’t know what to think anymore.
