352ng Euros Special: Ode To Ronaldo

On Sunday, hosts  France face Portugal in the final of the European Championships and one player would be at the centre of it all, Cristiano Ronaldo.

352ng Euros Special: Final Preview

One of my earliest football memories is from the UEFA cup final between Inter Milan and Lazio. A young Ronaldo scoring the third and final goal of the game, three step-overs and he was past the goalie leaving him on his back side as he proudly strutted goal ward before slotting into an empty net. I was bemused, I...

352ng Euros Special: France vs Germany Preview

Once again revenge is in the air. The tournament’s top scorers versus the meanest defense, two teams who have grown in confidence and quality as the tournament has progressed, two similar teams; dynamic and youthful but still with a lot of experience, the stage is set.

The final whistle of Swede 'Superman' Zlatan Ibrahimovic's last game for his country against Belgium signaled the end of what has been a truly engaging and pulsating group stage of the 2016 European Championships in France. Radja Naingolan brought an end to the Swede's ambition to clinch pure European footballing heaven. That signals the start of the business end...

352ng Euros Special: Spain will be winners

After reading an article which correctly predicted the winners of the Champion’s league based purely on Historical similarities between winners, I decided to try something similar for Euro 2016. The reduced frequency between tournaments and the change in Format means it is a bit tricky, but I have decided to go with the 5 winners in the closest format...

352NG Euros Special: Didier Deschamps Dilemma

It's still early days some would say but three games into the Euros and it is very glaring that France boss Didier Deschamps has major decisions to make concerning his French side. Yes, they have qualified but performances have been way below par for a side that were expected to light up the tournament not just because they are hosts...
