And so after Wales' ecstasy and England's disappointment, it's Northern Ireland's time at the European Championships today: they mark their return to major tournament action with a difficult game against Poland (5 p.m. BST, 12 p.m. ET). Northern Ireland had an impressive qualifying campaign, but were drawn in an easy group; this match will prove a very stern test indeed. Will Kyle Lafferty be able to maintain his rather uncharacteristic goalscoring exploits? Very probably not.
That game comes between two others. The day's play gets underway with Turkey taking on Croatia, with the former back after a rocky few years of qualification disappointment (2 p.m. BST, 9 a.m. ET). They're a talented young team, and are almost certain to give Croatia a difficult match. The day's final fixture is, however, arguably the most interesting one: reigning world champions Germany go head-to-head with Ukraine (8 p.m. BST, 3 p.m. ET). Stay here to discuss all of the action as it unfolds.
Are there any United players in action?
Yep, two: Germany's Bastian Schweinsteiger and Northern Ireland's Paddy McNair.
What about potential transfer targets?
Turkey's free-kick specialist Hakan Çalhanoğlu is one to keep an eye on, though probably more through hope than expectation. Poland defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak has also been linked with United recently, though Barcelona are also said to be interested in the Sevilla man's services.
