The delayed European Championships start this week on the football pitch with England among the favourites to go all the way.

Gareth Southgate's men look to emulate Chris Coleman’s 2016 Welsh team and get to at least the semi-finals. England has an embarrassment of riches with two of football's outstanding players, Phil Foden and Jack Grealish in the squad. Will the England manager be brave and play both together? Or will he stick with tried and who he trusts to help him create some history? 

Personally of course I would love to see Wales reach the last four again but if we can get into the knock-out stages from a tough group that could be as much as we can expect this time. Scotland are in England's group and with World Cup finalists Croatia to play, the same can be said of them as well. 

It will be great watching but possibly not as enthralling as The Lions Tour to South Africa. Already the squad has changed with Kyle Sinckler replacing injured Andrew Porter. The Boks are renowned for intimidation and brutality in the warm-up matches from past Tours, so every match will feel like a Test Match in some shape or form and will be compulsive viewing!

Better get that recorder on series link, what do you think?
