As the Euro 2016 opens in France the hosts kick off with consistent side Romania. They are unbeaten in the run-up to the tournament and they are known for their defensive tactics. It was a slow start for the most anticipated month in the past 2 years, but it took France awhile to get out of bed, a few decent chances in the first half from both teams but until Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud  heads home a cross from Dimitri Payet – the lead was short lived as Patrice Evra brings down the striker in the box and steps up Bogdan Stancu to slot it in the back of the net! Game On!

The game dragged out until West Ham’s key player last season Payet strikes the ball from outside the box into the top bin, the keeper had no chance.
Full time the hosts take the 3 points and we hope for a more exciting weekend ahead. #Euro2016
