Euro 2016 just keeps getting better and better.

:00:32.:00:36.

I know it has felt weird with no matches over the last

:00:37.:00:39.

couple of days, I don't know how I've coped!

:00:40.:00:42.

But don't fear now we've reached fear, now we've reached

:00:43.:00:46.

From now on, each match will be winner takes all.

:00:47.:00:50.

Oh, and just in case you haven't noticed, all our teams

:00:51.:00:53.

We've got the latest news from England, Northern Ireland

:00:54.:00:56.

and Wales coming right up plus all of this.

:00:57.:01:00.

See if you agree with our top five goals of the tournament so far.

:01:01.:01:07.

Passionate Polish fans give us the low-down on their team who have

:01:08.:01:10.

Plus our man in France, commentator Conor McNamara,

:01:11.:01:16.

compares Paris landmarks with football icons.

:01:17.:01:19.

The group stages are over and it is all change

:01:20.:01:23.

Persich break-out star of the tournament and Hal Dawson

:01:24.:01:32.

Over here McGovern, Ramsay and Walker all play

:01:33.:01:36.

for their home nations, who have fantastically all qualified

:01:37.:01:38.

What a massive cause for celebration.

:01:39.:01:41.

Wales secured their place in real style by cruising past Russia.

:01:42.:01:44.

3-0 in one of the best performances of the tournament.

:01:45.:01:47.

Aaron Ramsey was on fire with a lovely little dink

:01:48.:01:53.

for the first and Swansea left-back Neil Taylor got the second

:01:54.:02:01.

and his last goal was for Wrexham over five years ago

:02:02.:02:03.

Gareth Bale was majestic and another goal from the Real Madrid star means

:02:04.:02:08.

he is the tournament's joint top goal scorer and best

:02:09.:02:14.

of all for delirious Welsh fans, not only did they top Group B,

:02:15.:02:17.

but they also finished above neighbours England!

:02:18.:02:19.

Roy Hodgson made six changes for their final group match

:02:20.:02:25.

and the Three Lions could only draw nil-nil against Slovakia.

:02:26.:02:33.

There were plenty of decent openings as England dominated but Vardy,

:02:34.:02:35.

Henderson, Sturridge and Ali could not find

:02:36.:02:37.

Still, I'm urging all you England fans to keep the faith.

:02:38.:02:41.

The level of support inside the stadiums in France

:02:42.:02:43.

They've zipped the ball around well in every match so far.

:02:44.:02:47.

The subs bench is packed with talent and captain fantastic Wayne Rooney

:02:48.:02:52.

should be back from the start against their last 16 opponents

:02:53.:02:58.

When you're playing world champions Germany

:02:59.:03:03.

losing 1-0 is an incredible effort and that's what Northern Ireland did

:03:04.:03:06.

Goalie Michael McGovern made a string of outstanding

:03:07.:03:09.

His heroics ensured that Michael O'Neill's men avoided

:03:10.:03:16.

a bigger defeat and that was crucial because they qualified thanks

:03:17.:03:19.

to a better goal difference than Albania and Turkey.

:03:20.:03:24.

That's obviously because four third placed teams have still gone

:03:25.:03:31.

through from the six groups to make up the last 16.

:03:32.:03:34.

I mean, organising this tournament is about as difficult

:03:35.:03:37.

And what a mouth watering opponent up next.

:03:38.:03:40.

Yes, Northern Ireland and Wales play each other later today for a place

:03:41.:03:43.

And another team with loads of familiar faces to have qualified

:03:44.:03:47.

They snatched a crucial win against Italy thanks to this

:03:48.:03:53.

dramatic late goal and see if you can recognise

:03:54.:03:55.

These Ireland fans don't want to go home and the way

:03:56.:04:13.

it stands at moment, they're not going home!

:04:14.:04:19.

Yes, our very own Conor McNamara with Kevin Kilbane, both

:04:20.:04:21.

Now, once all the excitement had died down, Conor found time to cast

:04:22.:04:39.

At Euro 2016 will we say represents the Eiffel Tower.

:04:40.:04:57.

But here is the thing - of those ten million people,

:04:58.:05:00.

they reckon that 80% of them only come to look at one painting.

:05:01.:05:03.

So I'm trying to think who here at Euro 2016 do we think

:05:04.:05:07.

is the footballer who most reminds of the Mona Lisa?

:05:08.:05:09.

Well, let's see, everyone regards it as being world-class,

:05:10.:05:12.

it likes being the centre of attention this painting.

:05:13.:05:14.

Everyone, I think, pretty much wants to get a selfie taken with it.

:05:15.:05:17.

I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the Mona Lisa of Euro 2016.

:05:18.:05:20.

OK, the next calling point on my whistle-stop tour of Paris

:05:21.:05:22.

It's the business district and it is called La Defense.

:05:23.:05:26.

Any pictures you see of Paris, you never really see skyscrapers

:05:27.:05:29.

like the huge one behind me and that's because they've got such

:05:30.:05:33.

lovely old architecture here, they don't want big buildings to be

:05:34.:05:36.

dominating the skyline so if you want to build

:05:37.:05:38.

a big business building, you don't do it in

:05:39.:05:41.

You do it here at La Defense of which the highlight

:05:42.:05:44.

and the landmark is the huge modern arch behind me,

:05:45.:05:52.

So, if we are to pick a footballer, at Euro 2016 to represent this grand

:05:53.:05:59.

I'm going to say the Ittalian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon

:06:00.:06:03.

This arch was name after soldiers that defend this city.

:06:04.:06:14.

I'm going to say that Buffon is the grand arch of Euro 2016.

:06:15.:06:17.

Now what trip to Paris would be come bleat without a trip

:06:18.:06:20.

A structure that's become a symbol for the entire city.

:06:21.:06:24.

It was built in 1889 for a world trade fair and the idea

:06:25.:06:27.

was it was to be dismantled a few years later.

:06:28.:06:29.

Parisians though fell in love with it and you can't

:06:30.:06:31.

Which footballer at Euro 2016 represents the Eiffel Tower?

:06:32.:06:40.

Let's see, it is tall, it's elegant, it is world-class,

:06:41.:06:43.

I'm going to pay that Paul Pogba is the Eiffel Tower of Euro 2016.

:06:44.:06:49.

Conor there enjoying both football and culture.

:06:50.:06:52.

I have said it before and I'll say it again,

:06:53.:06:56.

As for the host nation, they go into tomorrow's match

:06:57.:07:00.

against Ireland knowing that the whole country will be

:07:01.:07:03.

Make sure you head to the MOTD Kickabout area

:07:04.:07:50.

Spot the ball games, match predictions plus a video

:07:51.:08:03.

uploader to send in your own Euro 2016 themed clips.

:08:04.:08:08.

That's what Freddie and Joey did after watching last week's show.

:08:09.:08:11.

Check out Freddie's Eric Dier's technique there.

:08:12.:08:13.

Don't worry Joey I know you could have saved it,

:08:14.:08:15.

but you just let your older brother score, admirable.

:08:16.:08:19.

Next up, nine-year-old Tom couldn't find five people to stand

:08:20.:08:21.

in the wall for his Gareth Bale free Kick so he used a net instead.

:08:22.:08:25.

From over the net to back of the net.

:08:26.:08:28.

Here are some more are you to go out and practise after the show.

:08:29.:08:34.

It's our top five goals of the group stages.

:08:35.:08:36.

Is this the opener for the world champions?

:08:37.:08:38.

Hamsik, just brilliant from the best player on the field.

:08:39.:09:03.

A chance for Cristiano Ronaldo!

:09:04.:09:04.

Because for me, it's not all about long-range thunderbolts,

:09:05.:09:24.

team moves and headers can be just as skilful.

:09:25.:09:26.

But if you have a different view, that's great because football

:09:27.:09:29.

For instance, I think that not only has Payet scored the best goal,

:09:30.:09:35.

he also gets my award for player of the tournament so far.

:09:36.:09:38.

I mean, yeah, we all know this, don't we?

:09:39.:09:41.

We all know that France are great and Payet is amazing.

:09:42.:09:44.

Can I give out some alternative awards for the slightly

:09:45.:09:47.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the award show

:09:48.:09:55.

If your dreams are about niche football tournament trivia

:09:56.:09:59.

award shows, of course, yes, we have put the winners

:10:00.:10:03.

in the binners and given the golden boot the boot because this

:10:04.:10:09.

is The Footies, the only ceremony that honours the alternative

:10:10.:10:11.

And I can't do an award ceremony without a glamorous assistant.

:10:12.:10:15.

Super Victor, what's the first category, please?

:10:16.:10:21.

Our first category is the Golden Mic Award for outstanding

:10:22.:10:24.

endeavour in the field of football commentary and the award goes

:10:25.:10:29.

to the Icelandic commentator who managed to hold it

:10:30.:10:31.

together for all of 0.0.5 seconds as Iceland broke away to score

:10:32.:10:34.

the winning goal score the winning goal against Austria

:10:35.:10:36.

and qualify from their group.

:10:37.:10:38.

Composure, resonance and impartiality, none of them

:10:39.:10:55.

Let's just hope he doesn't have cause to do the same

:10:56.:11:00.

Yes, it's the biggest rip off award for the most questionable shirt

:11:01.:11:09.

of the tournament and whilst Spain almost snatched it with their second

:11:10.:11:13.

kit that looks like someone did a digital sick down the front of it,

:11:14.:11:17.

Whilst the Swiss didn't tear it up on the pitch during their nil-nil

:11:18.:11:22.

draw against France, the same can't be said

:11:23.:11:26.

I've designed these replacements which are more sturdy

:11:27.:11:29.

Look, oh actually, they're not, they are just about as

:11:30.:11:34.

Anyway, our final category Victor, please.

:11:35.:11:41.

Yes, it is the comfy keeper award which belongs to only one man.

:11:42.:11:45.

Not only is he the oldest player at the tournament at 40 years young,

:11:46.:11:49.

but Hungary's player insists on wearing his pyjamas every time

:11:50.:11:53.

he plays and for that, I love him.

:11:54.:11:56.

In fact, such as is his popularity in his home country,

:11:57.:12:00.

people turned up to work in their tracksuit bottoms

:12:01.:12:03.

to show their support and it is not just the Hungarians that like them,

:12:04.:12:07.

Right, back to the serious stuff and a team with a serious defensive

:12:08.:12:28.

record. Poland have been impresent trable and have serious fire power

:12:29.:12:31.

upfront. Many are tipping them as a dark horse in the competition and

:12:32.:12:34.

with almost one million Poland supporters right here in the UK, we

:12:35.:12:36.

had to go and find out more. This is the first time we went to

:12:37.:12:53.

the knock-out stages and it is really good because they play really

:12:54.:12:57.

well. COMMENTATOR: Poland can look forward

:12:58.:13:01.

to further adventures here in France. I'm really happy that Poland

:13:02.:13:04.

won the Northern Ireland match because that was the first ever win

:13:05.:13:11.

in the Euros for Poland. COMMENTATOR: And that beats

:13:12.:13:25.

McGovern! Poland score. Oh! Oh! My favourite player. I like his tricks

:13:26.:13:36.

and things like that. Antos is Poland's best defender. We like him.

:13:37.:13:46.

We eat these snacks every time there is a Polish match on and with our

:13:47.:13:48.

family we share it. That means Poland white and red. At

:13:49.:14:07.

2pm I'm going to watch Poland versus Switzerland. Come on Poland! And the

:14:08.:14:12.

good news for all you Poland supporters is our young

:14:13.:14:17.

international Kickabout fans are proving a lucky omen. Dar yo gave us

:14:18.:14:21.

the low-down on Albania. He travelled to France to watch his

:14:22.:14:25.

team play Romania and witnessed the most famous night in their history.

:14:26.:14:30.

Last week, we met Iceland fans who have seen their team beat Austria to

:14:31.:14:34.

book their place in the last 16. All of our country guide can be found on

:14:35.:14:39.

the Kickabout website where you can choose your dream five a side team

:14:40.:14:43.

and read about mine! I have had a shuffle after the group stages. Here

:14:44.:14:46.

is a little selection of who you have been choosing. My name is

:14:47.:14:58.

Frank. I'm a big Chelsea fan. Cristiano Ronaldo on the right

:14:59.:15:06.

left-wing. Payet because he scored two goals in the Euros. Upfront

:15:07.:15:10.

Harry Kane from England as he was a top scorer in the Premier League. So

:15:11.:15:14.

that's your lot. We are awe out of time. Enjoy the feast of knock-out

:15:15.:15:19.

football starting this afternoon and if the entertainment is anything

:15:20.:15:24.

like the group stages, we are in for another treat. See ya!
