Palace Quartet Learn Euros Fate

23 June 2016


After the final group games in Euro 2016 were completed yesterday, all four of Palace's international representatives will face Irish opposition in the last 16.

Yohan Cabaye's France will take on the Republic of Ireland in Lyon on Sunday after Martin O'Neill's men stunned Italy last night with a 1-0 win to clinch a third-place berth. Cabaye's France ended their three group games on top of the table with seven points to help the hosts advance to the next stage.

Meanwhile after Northern Ireland reduced Germany to a single goal victory on Tuesday night, they too clinched a spot in the knockout stages and set up a Battle of Britain clash with Wales.

Joe Ledley, Wayne Hennessey and Jonny Williams could all see some gametime against Michael O'Neill's outfit in Paris on Saturday as they look to steer their country into the quarter-finals, having topped their group ahead of England following Monday night's emphatic 3-0 victory against Russia.

Wales are also included in a wide open side of the draw that contains no previous winners of a World Cup or European Championship amonsgt the eight qualified sides, with one of those guaranteed a spot in the final on 10th July.
