How to watch Euro 2016, Day Nine: Time, TV schedule and streaming options

On paper, the day's Euro 2016 action doesn't look particularly exciting. However, when taken in context, it promises to serve up three particularly interesting encounters. In the first match, Belgium will look to bounce back from their disappointing tournament-opening defeat to Italy with a win over the Republic of Ireland (2 p.m. BST, 9 a.m. ET). However, Martin O'Neill certainly knows how to organise a defence, and their draw with Sweden in the first match suggests they could give Marc Wilmots' side a game.

In the day's second match, two of the tournament's minnows face off as Iceland go head-to-head with Hungary (5 p.m. BST, 12 p.m. ET). Major tournament debutants Iceland salvaged a late point against Portugal in their tournament opener, though offered little in attack for the duration of the game. Hungary, who pulled off a big surprise in comprehensively defeating Austria, will head into this one fancying their chances of booking their place in the knockout stages.

The final game of the three sees Portugal take on Austria, with both sides out for revenge after opening game disappointment (8 p.m. BST, 3 p.m. ET). There's much on the line for Austria in particular, who know a defeat to Cristiano Ronaldo F.C. would likely see them eliminated at the first hurdle after losing to Hungary on the opening matchday. For one of the tournament's supposed dark horses, that would be especially disappointing.

Are there any United players in action?

Just the one, and unfortunately that one is Marouane Fellaini (Belgium).

What about potential transfer targets?

Pretty much the entire Portugal team, but in particular, André Gomes and João Mario. Apparently.
