Euros: It’s been a wild few days in Europe. Tuesday’s matches saw a protester “accidentally” parachute into Germany’s stadium, injuring fans during Germany’s 1–0 loss to France, and Portugal's 3–0 win over Hungary made Cristiano Ronaldo (who we are not fans of, BTW) the Euros’ all-time leading goal-scorer.

  • Yesterday was a touch tamer, with wins for Wales, Italy and Russia, and three more matches are on deck today. Check out all the results and the full schedule here.

CanWNT: Both of CanWNT’s latest friendlies ended in scoreless draws, and though we’re a bit nervous about their offense, the games proved the team’s defense is solid as a rock. Let’s hope defense wins championships in futbol too.

  • Speaking of, stay tuned for head coach Bev Priestman’s Olympic roster announcement, expected over the next couple of weeks.

CanMNT: The guys can hang, too. They’re riding a six-game winning streak, including Tuesday’s 3–0 win over Haiti, and for the first time in forever 24 years, they made it to the final round of World Cup qualifiers ahead of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
