UEFA EURO 2020 Quarter Finals will be starting from 2nd July 2021. Here are some more information about the UEFA Euro 2020 Quarter Finals.
The group stage of the 2020 European Championship ended on 23 June 2021 with teams from Hungary, Finland, Scotland, Poland, Hungary, Macedonia, Russia, Turkey and Slovakia eliminated. The semi-final draw at Euro 2020 marked the start of the knockout stage, with many of the big names out of the competition.
In the round of 16, 24 teams played in six groups of six to advance to the knockout phase. The round of last 16 began on Saturday, June 26, with teams guaranteed their place in the quarter-finals. The schedule and kick-off times for each knockout round match can be found below.
Once a host team qualified, they moved into the play-offs, which were drawn to determine which teams played three group games at home and away. If one of the host teams qualified and the other did not qualify, the host team contested all three home and away games, while the other host team qualified and contested two away games.
Should one host team advance straight into the play-offs and the other drop out, the host team would automatically qualify in the play-offs and play all three group games at home. Should both teams not qualify directly, the route to the winner would be via the host city, which would host two of the three matches in the host city of both teams according to the above criteria.
On May 24, 2018, UEFA announced the original tournament schedule including kick-off time for the opening matches and quarter-finals. Twenty-four teams played 51 matches in 12 cities during Euro 2020 until last Friday. The dates, kick-off times, times, results and reports are included in the full Euro 2020 schedule.
In the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, a trip to London and a semi-final at Wembley Stadium are on the line this weekend. The tournament concludes at Wembley with the final on Sunday, July 11.
Spain, two-time European champions in 2008 and 2012, played Switzerland in their first quarter-final on Friday, setting a pulse racing at Euro 2020 and knocking out reigning world champions France.
With huge upheavals, historic victories and goals galore, the 2020 European Championship just keeps on going. The quarter-finals of Euro 2020 have been confirmed after the round of last 16 produced one of the most exciting days in football at a major tournament. Few predicted what the quarter-final lineup would look like, but Switzerland shocked world champions France and the Czech Republic eliminated the Netherlands, a team that had impressed many in the group stage.
Even though Belgium were considered favourites to win Euro 2020 before kick-off, they lived up to the hype surrounding the championship. From upsets and dramas to penalty shootouts and extra-time, something heroic was conceivable.
The Danish fans have allowed themselves to dream of a repeat of Euro 92 given the group’s remarkable mental strength, when the national team won their only major international trophy to date. They will face a Czech team who boast one of the best attacking lines of the tournament so far. The Czech Republic impressed with a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in the last 16, a team many believed would reach deeper into their pockets at Euro 2020 after an impressive performance in the group stage.
After losing star man Christian Eriksen in the opening game, the Danes rallied as their captain found his form. Raheem Sterling made it 0-0 with a goal in the 75th minute before Harry Kane secured victory with his first European Championship goal. The Swiss were reduced to 10 men after the red card for Remo Freuler, but held firm and forced extra-time and penalties.
Christensen finished with two interceptions, three rebounds and two free throws. With two Swiss goals, Spain had to be on high alert. The Italian left flank from Leonardo Spinazzola and Lorenzo Insigne was key for the team in their quarter-final clash with Austria and proved pivotal as they defeated a lively Austria team to win in extra time 2-1.
Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku were at their best in Belgium’s win over Italy. Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter called UEFA’s decision not to let the Allianz Arena shine in rainbow colors in favor of LGBTIQ + “shameful.”. UEFA has banned rainbow-coloured adverts for two Euro 2020 quarter-final matches between Russia and Azerbaijan.
The eight teams remaining from Euro 2020 will have a tough time matching the dramatic quarter-finals that enchanted us for four days. In partnership with Vivo, the official smartphone for Euro 2020, we hope to celebrate and enjoy all the great moments of the tournament.
In the knockout phase, when a game is tied after 90 minutes of play, there is extra time (two periods of 15 minutes each) with each side to make a sixth change. If it remains a draw after extra time, the match will be decided by penalty shootout.
Matches will be between the followings europian countries:
Switzerland 1 (1) – 1(3) Spain
The prediction is Switzerland 1 – 2 Spain
