Book makers say Denmark, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany and Sweden will crossover to the quarter-final.
But can't defending champions Portugal pull a surprise over Belgium? Is England not good enough to upset Germany? Will Ukraine fold their arms to allow Sweden run them down?
This is where the real battle is. The boys have been separated from the men. It is now a show of resilience, courage and will power to excel. A bit of luck too is needed.
Cristiano Ronaldo cannot stop doing what he knows how best to do....banging in goals. He keeps breaking and setting records. With 109, he sure looks set for more. He now smells goals like a hunting dog in a jungle seeking games. His hunger for goals will propel his country against fixture favourites Belgium.
Euro 2020 is gradually getting to the boiling point. We wait to see those that cruise to last eight and eventually reach the semis to possibly lift the prestigious trophy.
Best of luck to all 16 teams!!!
