This weekend will be packed with exciting fixtures in the Euro 2020 Championship. Wounded Germany will seek to rekindle their title chase when they clash with Portugal, while England and Scotland flare up the oldest rivalry in football history.   

The matches will be shown on StarTimes channels live in HD.


In Group D, England will face Scotland in Wembley Stadium at 8.00 p.m. England and Scotland have the oldest rivalry in football history. Favourites of the tournament, England are on a high after an impressive victory over Croatia but a defeat against their neighbours would rob them of much of the momentum they are looking to build. The 0-2 loss to the Czech Republic leaves Scotland likely needing a win here to escape the group stages. Croatia will battle against the Czech Republic at 5.00 p.m., while in Group E, Sweden versus Slovakia will take place at 2.00 p.m.

Tomorrow, Group F’s Group of Death will provide an exciting match with Portugal facing Germany at 5.00 p.m. on the StarTimes World Football channel.

Portugal beat Hungary 3-0 in their opening game, with Raphael Guerreiro opening the scoring before Ronaldo scored twice to take his European Championship to haul to an all-time record of 11 goals. Germany lost their opening game against world champions, France, 1-0.


On the same day, France will try to take the Group F lead against Hungary at 2.00 p.m., while Spain versus Poland match will kick off at 8.00 p.m.

Italy became the first side to book their place in the last 16 round of Euro 2020 after a 3-0 win against Switzerland. Wales took a significant step towards qualifying for the knockout stages after prevailing 2-0 against Turkey. They will seek a win against Italy on Sunday to secure the second qualifying spot in Group A following their 1-1 draw with the Swiss in their opening game. Italy and Wales will clash on Sunday at 5.00 p.m., while Switzerland will take on Turkey at 5.00 p.m.
