Euro 2016's first round of matches comes to a conclusion on Tuesday, with a Group F double-header. The day's action therefore doesn't start until a little later, when the two nations once united under the banner of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy go head-to-head in Bordeaux (5 p.m. BST, 12 p.m. ET). Austria have been touted by a few as the tournament's real dark horses, what with their smattering of solid Premier League talent and a genuine star in David Alaba. They'll certainly head into this match expecting three points.

However, that remains something of a warm-up fixture for the day's main event: the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and 10 of his Portuguese compatriots for their encounter with Iceland in Saint-Étienne (8 p.m. BST, 3 p.m. ET). Portugal, needless to say, head into the match as comfortable favourites, though much depends on whether they'll be able to play as a team. They've failed to do so at recent major tournaments, much to the frustration of their captain. Keep an eye on Iceland's star man Gylfi Sigurðsson, who starred in qualifying during an impressive season at Swansea City.

Are there any United players in action?

Negative.

What about potential transfer targets?

Basically, the entire Portugal team if transfer rumours are to be believed. However, keep a particular eye on creative midfielders André Gomes and João Mário. Defensive midfielder William Carvalho was once thought to be a big United favourite, though he seems to have gone out of fashion of late.
