Through the first three days of the 2016 European Championships, every Juventus player that has stepped onto the field has seen his respective country win. Paul Pogba and Patrice Evra? Win with France. Stephan Lichtsteiner, the new captain of Switzerland, a winner. Germany, captained by Brother Sami Khedira, were winners.

Now comes the tricky part.

Both of the Euro 2012 finalists are taking the field today. And it's safe to say that both of those countries, Italy and Spain, are not in the same shape they were four years ago. Key players are either show their signs of being four years older or completely retired.

Seriously, Thiago Motta is Italy's No. 10. Seriously.

This is our first chance to see if Antonio Conte can work his magic and transform a meh squad into something that can, well, do something at the Euros. With who he has brought to France, not many people are expecting the Azzurri to do much of anything. A trip to the final for the second straight Euro tournament? Nah, not really. That's just what happens when people see your likely starting strikers for your opening game are going to be Graziano Pelle and Eder.

Here's to hoping Gigi Buffon and that BBC defense in front of him just shuts everybody out and Italy just grinds out a bunch of 1-0 wins. That's what all the cliches say, right? Those crazy Italians sure do know how to defend!
