The last day of the group stages today - after this we'll know the full draw for the knockouts and be able to work out exactly which day we'll be very grumpy.

Group E first at 5pm, Sweden win the group with a win over Poland and means Spain can't finish higher than second whatever they do against Slovakia, in a game where the possession stats are likely to be one sided.

Then Group F, which will decide England's Round of 16 opponents. If France and Germany win, we play Germany. If France and Portugal draw, and Germany win, we play France (please no). If Germany and Portugal win, we play Portugal. If Hungary win, we all laugh for a very long time.

It just depends how much France want to top the group, it is quite feasible that they would draw with Portugal in any case.

So if we'd have finished second in the group we'd have got Spain. Makes getting Germany or Portugal after winning it a little less painful.

Sweden now reasonably likely as a quarter final for the winner of us/group F second place, then Netherlands in the semi.

Other side of the draw probably has France, Spain, Belgium and Italy.

Very unlike Sweden to have such an exciting young forward line coming through. Kusulevski, Forsberg, Isak, Sema, Larsson.

Great to see.

As an England fan with money on France topping the group and Germany coming third, I would like these games to end now please.
