One of the most awaited football events -- Euro 2016 – has started, and some close matches have already been witnessed as well. France, Spain, Germany, England, Italy are serious contenders for the title, but one cannot ignore other teams like Austria, Croatia and Poland, who are the dark horses of Euro 2016.

The Euro 2016 comprises 24 teams battling it out for the prestigious title, divided into six groups of four teams each. The top two nations from each group make it to the round of 16, while the four best third-placed teams will also qualify for the pre-quarters.

Group E has been regarded as the 'group of death' with teams like Italy, Sweden, Belgium and Northern Ireland, who are all capable of making it to the round of 16.
