Wales v Denmark

Second from Group A faces second from Group B to kick things off in the last 16, with Matt Smith’s Wales facing Denmark at the Amsterdam ArenA.

While Smith is yet to feature for the Dragons, there’s still time for the City midfielder to make an impression on the tournament, as Rob Page’s side look to book a place in the last eight with victory in Holland.

The game kicks off at 17:00 (UK) on Saturday 26 June and, for those living in the UK, is being broadcast live on the BBC.

Netherlands v Czech Republic

Nathan Ake and co. were one of the standout sides from the Euro 2020 group stages, topping Group C with maximum points after victories over Ukraine, Austria and North Macedonia.

However, they will need to be at their best once again to reach the quarter-final, pitting their wits against the Czech Republic, whose third-placed finish in Group D belies their solid performances thus far.

The two will do battle on Sunday 27 June at Budapest’s Ferenc Puskas Stadium, with kick-off scheduled for 17:00 (UK).

Belgium v Portugal

Two of the pre-tournament favourites lock horns on Sunday 27 June in Sevilla’s Estadio Olympico, with some familiar faces lining up on both sides.

Kevin De Bruyne has been in fine fettle so far, grabbing two assists in as many group stage matches as well as the winning goal against a stubborn Denmark side as the Red Devils marched to first position in Group B.

He’ll face two of his City teammates in Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva when they take on the reigning European Champions at 20:00 (UK).

While Portugal finished third in Group F, they have shown more than glimpses of their devastating quality across the tournament so far, hammering Hungary in Budapest before going toe to toe with World Champions, France.

It promises to be a fascinating matchup, and the game is available to watch live on ITV in the UK.

Croatia v Spain

Spain’s Euro 2020 campaign burst into life with an emphatic 5-0 victory over Slovakia in their final group game, spearheaded by a first international goal from Aymeric Laporte and a strike off the bench from Ferran Torres.

The win ensured that La Roja secured second spot in Group E, with their reward being a matchup with the runners up from Group D, Croatia.

With Laporte and Torres joined by City teammates Eric Garcia and Rodrigo, Spain are unquestionably in capable hands and will hope to get the better of the World Cup finalists at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium.

The match kicks off at 17:00 (UK) on Monday 28 June and is available to watch live on ITV in the UK.

England v Germany

It perhaps comes as no surprise to learn that the largest potential involvement of City players in any of the last 16 clashes will take place at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday 29 June.

John Stones, Kyle Walker, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling have all played a huge role in securing top spot for England in Group D, with the latter also bagging two goals in the process.

The City quartet will come up against a familiar foe in the form of Ilkay Gundogan as they vie for a spot in the quarters.

Sweden v Ukraine

The Euro 2020 last 16 concludes with Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Ukraine locking horns with Group E winners, Sweden on Tuesday 29 June at 20:00 (UK).

Andriy Shevchenko’s side qualified by virtue of being one of the four strongest third-placed teams, after narrow defeats to Holland and Austria and a battling victory over North Macedonia.

Zinchenko has operated in central midfield for Ukraine, starting all three group games as a vital part of their industrious and organised setup.

The match takes place at Glasgow’s Hampden Park and is available to view live on the BBC in the UK.
