Alexander Isak could cause a sensation

When entering the competition, against Spain, Sweden spent almost the entire meeting in their camp and repelling the assaults of Roja.

But this aspect of match did not prevent his striker Alexander Isak from shining.

On several occasions, the center-forward of Real Sociedad sowed discord in the Spanish defense thanks to his good ball catches, his dribbling in small spaces and his power.

Even if he failed to make a difference, the young Swede showed himself to his advantage.

He will be eagerly awaited this Friday against Slovakia, against whom he should be one of the main offensive weapons of his selection.

In full doubt, Croatia has no room for mistakes

She has to pull herself together.

Croatia missed its debut in this European Championship.

For his first match, against England, Luka Modric and his teammates, dominated, logically bowed (1-0).

Zlatko Dalic's men showed defensive largesse and struggled to bring danger into the opposing defense.

The finalist selection of the last World Cup must therefore resume against the Czech Republic to hope to finish in the first two and be thus assured of seeing the round of 16.

It will be interesting to see the Croatian reaction this Friday.

The "revelation" Patrik Schick

He is one of the revelations of this first week of Euro 2020. Patrik Schick splashed his talent on the meeting between the Czech Republic and Scotland.

Already author of the opening scoring with the head, the 25-year-old center forward scored a second goal that marked the spirits.

On a counterattack, the Bayer Leverkusen striker shook the nets with a sublime lob ... from the midfielder.

Brilliant inspiration, full of class.

The Czech must confirm this very good performance this Friday against Croatia.

He might well have another little surprise in store for us.

The enticing "derby" between English and Scottish

It is without doubt one of the matches of the group stage not to be missed under any circumstances. This Friday evening, England welcomes their Scottish neighbor to Wembley in a confrontation that looks like a "derby". The meeting promises to be explosive and very engaged on the lawn but also in the stands where the supporters of the two selections should give voice to support their team. It will not be devoid of sporting issues either. The English, victorious against Croatia, will want to continue their momentum and thus ensure their qualification for the rest of the competition. Steve Clarke's men, for their part,will be keen to recover after their poor performance against the Czech Republic in the hope of leaving Group D for their return to the European Championship after a quarter of a century of absence.
