The group stages are over and it is all change
Persich break-out star of the tournament and Hal Dawson
Over here McGovern, Ramsay and Walker all play
for their home nations, who have fantastically all qualified
What a massive cause for celebration.
Wales secured their place in real style by cruising past Russia.
3-0 in one of the best performances of the tournament.
Aaron Ramsey was on fire with a lovely little dink
for the first and Swansea left-back Neil Taylor got the second
and his last goal was for Wrexham over five years ago
Gareth Bale was majestic and another goal from the Real Madrid star means
he is the tournament's joint top goal scorer and best
of all for delirious Welsh fans, not only did they top Group B,
but they also finished above neighbours England!
Roy Hodgson made six changes for their final group match
and the Three Lions could only draw nil-nil against Slovakia.
There were plenty of decent openings as England dominated but Vardy,
Henderson, Sturridge and Ali could not find
Still, I'm urging all you England fans to keep the faith.
The level of support inside the stadiums in France
They've zipped the ball around well in every match so far.
The subs bench is packed with talent and captain fantastic Wayne Rooney
should be back from the start against their last 16 opponents
When you're playing world champions Germany
losing 1-0 is an incredible effort and that's what Northern Ireland did
Goalie Michael McGovern made a string of outstanding
His heroics ensured that Michael O'Neill's men avoided
a bigger defeat and that was crucial because they qualified thanks
to a better goal difference than Albania and Turkey.
That's obviously because four third placed teams have still gone
through from the six groups to make up the last 16.
I mean, organising this tournament is about as difficult
And what a mouth watering opponent up next.
Yes, Northern Ireland and Wales play each other later today for a place
And another team with loads of familiar faces to have qualified

Now, once all the excitement had died down, Conor found time to cast
At Euro 2016 will we say represents the Eiffel Tower.
But here is the thing - of those ten million people,
they reckon that 80% of them only come to look at one painting.
So I'm trying to think who here at Euro 2016 do we think
is the footballer who most reminds of the Mona Lisa?
Well, let's see, everyone regards it as being world-class,
it likes being the centre of attention this painting.
Everyone, I think, pretty much wants to get a selfie taken with it.
I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the Mona Lisa of Euro 2016.
OK, the next calling point on my whistle-stop tour of Paris
It's the business district and it is called La Defense.
Any pictures you see of Paris, you never really see skyscrapers
like the huge one behind me and that's because they've got such
lovely old architecture here, they don't want big buildings to be
dominating the skyline so if you want to build
a big business building, you don't do it in
You do it here at La Defense of which the highlight
and the landmark is the huge modern arch behind me,
So, if we are to pick a footballer, at Euro 2016 to represent this grand
I'm going to say the Ittalian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon
This arch was name after soldiers that defend this city.
I'm going to say that Buffon is the grand arch of Euro 2016.
Now what trip to Paris would be come bleat without a trip
A structure that's become a symbol for the entire city.
It was built in 1889 for a world trade fair and the idea
was it was to be dismantled a few years later.
Parisians though fell in love with it and you can't
Which footballer at Euro 2016 represents the Eiffel Tower?
Let's see, it is tall, it's elegant, it is world-class,
I'm going to pay that Paul Pogba is the Eiffel Tower of Euro 2016.
Conor there enjoying both football and culture.
I have said it before and I'll say it again,
As for the host nation, they go into tomorrow's match
against Ireland knowing that the whole country will be

That's what Freddie and Joey did after watching last week's show.
Check out Freddie's Eric Dier's technique there.
Don't worry Joey I know you could have saved it,
but you just let your older brother score, admirable.
Next up, nine-year-old Tom couldn't find five people to stand
in the wall for his Gareth Bale free Kick so he used a net instead.
From over the net to back of the net.
Here are some more are you to go out and practise after the show.
It's our top five goals of the group stages.
Is this the opener for the world champions?
Hamsik, just brilliant from the best player on the field.
A chance for Cristiano Ronaldo!
Because for me, it's not all about long-range thunderbolts,
team moves and headers can be just as skilful.
But if you have a different view, that's great because football
For instance, I think that not only has Payet scored the best goal,
he also gets my award for player of the tournament so far.
I mean, yeah, we all know this, don't we?
We all know that France are great and Payet is amazing.
Can I give out some alternative awards for the slightly
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the award show
If your dreams are about niche football tournament trivia
award shows, of course, yes, we have put the winners
in the binners and given the golden boot the boot because this
is The Footies, the only ceremony that honours the alternative
And I can't do an award ceremony without a glamorous assistant.
Super Victor, what's the first category, please?
Our first category is the Golden Mic Award for outstanding
endeavour in the field of football commentary and the award goes
to the Icelandic commentator who managed to hold it
together for all of 0.0.5 seconds as Iceland broke away to score
the winning goal score the winning goal against Austria
and qualify from their group.
Composure, resonance and impartiality, none of them
Let's just hope he doesn't have cause to do the same
Yes, it's the biggest rip off award for the most questionable shirt
of the tournament and whilst Spain almost snatched it with their second
kit that looks like someone did a digital sick down the front of it,
Whilst the Swiss didn't tear it up on the pitch during their nil-nil
draw against France, the same can't be said
I've designed these replacements which are more sturdy
Look, oh actually, they're not, they are just about as
Anyway, our final category Victor, please.
Yes, it is the comfy keeper award which belongs to only one man.
Not only is he the oldest player at the tournament at 40 years young,
but Hungary's player insists on wearing his pyjamas every time
he plays and for that, I love him.
In fact, such as is his popularity in his home country,
people turned up to work in their tracksuit bottoms
to show their support and it is not just the Hungarians that like them,
Right, back to the serious stuff and a team with a serious defensive
record. Poland have been impresent trable and have serious fire power
upfront. Many are tipping them as a dark horse in the competition and
with almost one million Poland supporters right here in the UK, we
had to go and find out more. This is the first time we went to
the knock-out stages and it is really good because they play really
well. COMMENTATOR: Poland can look forward
to further adventures here in France. I'm really happy that Poland
won the Northern Ireland match because that was the first ever win
in the Euros for Poland. COMMENTATOR: And that beats
McGovern! Poland score. Oh! Oh! My favourite player. I like his tricks
and things like that. Antos is Poland's best defender. We like him.
We eat these snacks every time there is a Polish match on and with our
family we share it. That means Poland white and red. At
2pm I'm going to watch Poland versus Switzerland. Come on Poland! And the
good news for all you Poland supporters is our young
international Kickabout fans are proving a lucky omen. Dar yo gave us
the low-down on Albania. He travelled to France to watch his
team play Romania and witnessed the most famous night in their history.
Last week, we met Iceland fans who have seen their team beat Austria to
book their place in the last 16. All of our country guide can be found on
the Kickabout website where you can choose your dream five a side team
and read about mine! I have had a shuffle after the group stages. Here
is a little selection of who you have been choosing. My name is
Frank. I'm a big Chelsea fan. Cristiano Ronaldo on the right
left-wing. Payet because he scored two goals in the Euros. Upfront
Harry Kane from England as he was a top scorer in the Premier League. So
that's your lot. We are awe out of time. Enjoy the feast of knock-out
football starting this afternoon and if the entertainment is anything
like the group stages, we are in for another treat. See ya!
