NICE. – Saturday was the ninth day in the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Euro 2016 which France is hosting, and it was the last day in the second-round competitions of the group stage.
The second crushing defeat was recorded on that day, as Belgium beat Ireland by a score of 3-0.
But Iceland, which are considered the “Leicester City” of this tournament, were unable to maintain their score advantage, and they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Hungary.

Portugal cannot achieve a win for the second match in a row; this time they played a goalless draw against Austria. Even though Portugal captain and FC Real Madrid (Spain) forward Cristiano Ronaldo could have pulled his squad ahead, he missed a crucial penalty.
But Ronaldo’s socks were being discussed more than his actual performance on the pitch.
After the game, a fan invaded the pitch in an attempt to take a selfie with the Portugal football star. Even though the security staff immediately grabbed hold of this supporter, Ronaldo approached the boy and allowed him to take a selfie with him.
