Some of the highlights from the group stage of the European Championship in football.

If you cheer for Hungary, the highlights will be the three matches of Hungary. The first match is at 15:00 on June 15 against Switzerland, followed by a second match against Germany on June 19 at 18:00 against Germany, and the third group stage match will be against Scotland at 21:00 on June 23 in Stuttgart. But, besides these matches, which are some of the most interesting matches during the group-stage of the European Championship in football?

  • Spain – Croatia, June 15, 18:00.
    Who said we had to wait for a long time for great matches? The opening match between Germany and Scotland on June 14 is interesting, but when Spain plays against Croatia on June 15, both teams are considered to be among the best teams in the tournament. Knowing that Italy is in the same group, both Spain and Croatia know for sure that this is a match they do not want to lose! Spain has some of the best keepers in the tournament (David Raya and Unai Simon), and recent Champions League champions such as Dani Carvajal and Joselu in the squad. Is that enough to cause trouble for Joško Gvardiol, Mateo Kovačić, Luka Modrić, Andrej Kramarić, and Bruno Petković?
  • England – Serbia, June 16, 21:00.
    England is one of the biggest favorites to win the tournament, but Serbia is a much tougher opponent than many people think. They have fantastic players such as Dusan Tadic, Filip Kostic, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Dusan Vlahovic. In other words, England might get a much tougher start on the tournament than many people expect! But, if we look at the English squad with names such as Jude Bellingham, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Declan Rice, Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish, Cole Palmer, and Harry Kane, it is no wonder why many believe England is among the biggest favorite to win Euro 2024.
  • Spain – Italy, June 20, 21:00.
    The match between Spain and Italy on June 20th might mean goodbye to one of the teams, depending on the results of Italy’s first match against Albania, and the result of Spain’s opening match against Croatia. No matter what, this is gonna be a fantastic match. It is also important to remember that few people expected Italy to win the European Championship in football in 2021, but they still Did. Few people believe Italy will win in 2024, but who knows? Do you think Gigi Donnarumma, Jorginho, Lorenzo Pellegrini, and Stephan El Shaarawy can do miracles? It is also interesting to see that Italy has a squad consisting where more than 90% of the players play in Italian Serie A, with Jorginho in Arsenal and Donnarumma in PSG as the exceptions.
  • France – Netherlands, June 21, 21:00.
    France is the biggest favorite of them all to win the European Championship in football. They will play against Austria, the Netherlands, and Poland during the group stage. Neither team should be good enough to steal points from France, but we also know that the Netherlands can cause trouble on a good day. Will June 21 be such a day? Can Nathan Ake, Virgil van Dijk, Stefan de Vrij, Jeremie Frimpong, Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Teun Koopmeiners, Steven Bergwijn, Memphis Depay, and Cody Gakpo cause trouble for Ferland Mendy, William Saliba, Eduardo Camavinga, Antoine Griezmann, Kingsley Coman, Ousmane Dembele, and Kylian Mbappe? What do you think?

These are just four of many matches that will be incredibly interesting during the group stage of the European Championship in football. You can watch these and all the rest of the matches online at M4 Sport in Hungary by following the instructions above.

Hungary in the Euro 2020 in Handball!

The European Championship in Handball is currently arranged in Austria, Sweden, and Norway, and the Hungarians surprised us all and won their initial group. That was a giant surprise, especially considering that they have to play against the Danes, the team considered to be the best in the world currently.

After the initial stage, Hungary went on to the next stage in the tournament together with Iceland. The Danes were left behind together with the Russian team. The Hungarians have played very well, far better than expected, and especially the second half against Iceland during the group stage was magical. But, can they keep the tempo up in the upcoming matches?

On January 17th, Hungary will play against Norway

Norway has been an awesome team so far in the tournament, and they have gotten to the final in several large tournaments recently (however, they never managed to actually win the final). Sander Sagosen is the big star of the team, but they have highly-skilled players at all positions. The way we see it, this is probably the toughest of all the matches during the upcoming stage of the European Championship in handball!

On January 19th, Hungary will play against Slovenia

Slovenia has been a big surprise themselves so far in the tournament, but how they will enter this match will in large also depend on their result as they play against Portugal on January 17th.

On January 21st, Hungary will play against Sweden

Handball has been greatly influenced by the Scandinavian nations, and this will be the third Scandinavian nation against which Hungary will play in the tournament.

On January 22nd, Hungary will play against Portugal

This will be a tough one, not because of the incredible skills of the Portuguese team, but because the Hungarians will not have a rest-day in front of the match. Well, neither will Portugal, but it will still create a large pressure upon the players who will for sure be tired by then after playing so many matches in such a short time.

Can Hungary make it to the semi-final?

Hungary has a little advantage considering that they enter the group stage with two points already. These might be very useful when things get tight. However, if the Hungarians can keep up the fighting from the earlier matches, and if they manage to keep their heads calm, this team might make it to the semi-finals. It would for sure be considered a major surprise to everyone if they do, but there is one thing we can know for sure, the Hungarians will be cheering for their team with everything they have!

If you want to cheer for the Hungarians or simply watch the matches online, check the following streaming guide or the following YouTube video for further information!

Are you looking for a place to watch the matches from the European Championship in Handball in Hungary? If you live in a hotel or an apartment with a TV, then look for the channel Sport1. They broadcast all the Hungarian matches and quite a lot of other matches as well.
