Today’s match between Spain and Italy could be the best so far in the Euro 2016. World champions Germany will be watching closely, since they will play the Spain-Italy winner in the tournament's next round.
Spain became the eleventh team to qualify for Russia 2018 after their convincing 3-0 win over Albania and Italy's disappointing home draw against Macedonia. Elsewhere, Euro 2016 surprise package Iceland are looking good.
The World Cup draw produced no obvious "group of death," but Germany certainly have it tougher than most other top seeds. No game is ever easy for the title holders, but Group F will at least keep them on their toes.

Favorites are out of fashion, minnows are the rage and the low number of goals makes last-minute strikes particularly valuable. DW takes a completely subjective look at what we learned from the first stage of Euro 2016.
