SAINT-MARTIN-DE-RE, France (AP) -- Spain is going to stick to its game of quick passing and ball possession. One game into the European Championship and it's obvious that the two-time defending champions are not changing their style despite their World Cup debacle two years ago, when the tiki-taka failed and Spain didn't make it past the group stage. When the team plays Turkey on Friday in Nice in its second Group D match, Spain will be using the same formula that worked to perfection when it won the last two European Championships and the 2010 World Cup - keeping control of the ball and being aggressive with the final pass near the opponent's goa

Anglo-Welsh rivalry to reach new peak on the pitch

By Karolos Grohmann EVIAN, France (Reuters) - World champions Germany have warned that there is more to their biggest Euro 2016 group rivals Poland than Bundesliga top scorer Robert Lewandowski. The Germans, fresh from their impressive 2-0 win over Ukraine, take on their neighbors in Paris on Thursday, knowing the Poles also made a winning start in Group C with a 1-0 victory over Northern Ireland.

A rivalry dating back 137 years will reach a new level of intensity in Lens on Thursday when England and Wales meet at a major tournament for the first time. As the Welsh won their opening Group B game 2-1 against Slovakia before England conceded a last-minute goal in a 1-1 draw with Russia, they go into this encounter looking down on their neighbors, which has not often been the case.

The smallest country ever to play at a European Championship, with its population of 330,000, Iceland made its major tournament debut in style with a 1-1 draw. Having recently helped Real Madrid win the Champions League in Milan, Ronaldo lacked his usual accuracy in front of goal, miskicking a great chance in the first half with only Hannes Halldorsson to beat and then sending a powerful header straight at the Iceland goalkeeper from close range in the secon

Iceland was second best most of the Group F game and trailed to a first half strike by Nani.
