Euro 2020 Open Watch Thread: Day 2

New, comments

The first day of the tournament was good. The second? Let’s see!

If you’re one of the many people who thought the first night of Euro 2020 was highly enjoyable — and you’re Italian, then that is definitely the case! — just you wait until what we have in store for the second day.

From Roberto Mancini and his high-flying Italy squad to ... Aaron Ramsey!

Yes, the lone Juventus player in action today, the second day of Euro 2020, just so happens to be the guy who received one of the lowest ratings during our recent review of the 2020-21 Serie A season. It’s nothing personal, Aaron, and we know that you yourself have recently talked about the struggles that have gone on during your two years in Turin. So maybe this is a turning point in your year, and hopefully one that results in a chance to show what you’re all about before finding a nice new club later this summer.

I digress.

The schedule for today:

  • Aaron Ramsey and Walves vs. Switzerland, the side formerly captained by Stephan Lichtsteiner
  • Denmark vs. Finland
  • Belgium vs. Russia

So maybe outside of Belgium and its golden generation it’s not the big, headline-grabbing names like it was when Italy was taking the field at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome after Andrea Bocelli did his wonderful thing. But this is Day 2 of the Euros, and now we settle into a group stage routine where we’ve got three games a day for a nice little chunk of time.

And there’s Aaron Ramsey! Exciting, ain’t it?
