Three teams remain in Euro 2016 following Portugal's 2-0 win over Wales on Wednesday night. By the time Thursday night rolls around, only two teams remain. Of the two teams in the second semifinal, we know there will be at least some kind of Juventus representation come this weekend's tournament finale.
Will it be (the injured) Sami Khedira and the defending world champions making the trip to the Euro final?
Will it be the tournament hosts France, led by Paul Pogba and Uncle Pat, Patrice Evra?
There will certainly be some of the best talent in the world on the field this evening in Marseille. Germany, while dealing with both suspensions and injuries, will look to avoid another performance like what happened against Italy in the quarterfinals where they were rather neutralized by the Azzurri defense. France, on the other hand, had easily its best performance in its 5-2 win over Iceland in the quarterfinals, with Pogba finally getting on the scoresheet in the victory.
Now, both teams look to get into the final in a game where a lot of people are considering it the final.
I mean, Portugal have been relatively crap the entire tournament and look what happened Wednesday. Now, with two of the best teams the tournament has to offer facing one another in the semifinals, we get to see a matchup many have wanted to see.
Let's just hope the Iceland win wasn't the last time we got to see Pogba dab on 'em at Euro 2016. That would have been kinda sad.
