Five things that leaves the first phase of Euro 2016
The first phase of Euro 2016 It ends and as is logical, leaves joy and sorrow equally, good and bad feelings and as, many records and curiosities. We have five of them.
1-Cristiano Ronaldo breaks records: Portuguese achieved several records in this Euro 2016. The first of them being the most capped player in the history of Euro. He debuted in the 2004, held in the Iberian country and after 4 editions becomes the most capped player. Then gets another record, the dial in 4 Eurocopas, something no one had done.
2-The “British” Euro: four teams of the islands involved in this European Championship 2016. North Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Wales and England came as representatives soccer islands and 4 more or less creditworthy, They have passed to the second round.
3-Iceland and Welsh make history (even more): with their presence at Euro 2016 already made history but this seemed little. Both teams are making history not only for their qualifying round but also for its solvency to do. Welsh makes it as group winners ahead of England and Iceland itself as a second ahead of Portugal.
4-Sweden removing just the international career of Zlatan Ibrahimovic: the poor performance of the Swedes who fall into the first round attached to the announcement a few days before leaving the team football by the Ibrahimovic himself, leave Euro 2016 as the last major international tournament for the Swedish country. Shame go by the back door.
5-The goals for the end: the first phase has left many unresolved matches scoring between the minute 80 and the 90 more discount. More of 10 parties have resolved goals in these minutes. Last Sweden-Belgium and the Italy-Ireland gave the pass to the Irish with a goal late in the game.
