EURO 2024: TODAY'S FIXTURES, SUNDAY 16 JUNE

Here's a rundown of today's fixtures at Euro 2024 and which broadcaster you can watch on.



Poland v Netherlands

2pm, BBC One

Mark Chapman introduces the action as the Dutch, who were European champions 36 years ago, begin their campaign against Group D rivals Poland in Hamburg.


It was in Hamburg that the Netherlands recorded one of their most famous wins, beating hosts West Germany in the semi-finals on the way to winning Euro 88. Current coach Ronald Koeman, who scored in that victory, can call upon some truly elite defensive talent such as Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk and Bayern Munich’s Matthijs de Ligt.



Slovenia v Denmark

5pm, ITV1

Laura Woods presents live coverage alongside Gary Neville, Joleon Lescott and Eni Aluko, and will include a preview of England’s group as well as all the key news ahead of England's opening game against Serbia. Pien Meulensteen is in commentary alongside Ally McCoist. 


Slovenia haven't qualified for a European Championship in 24 years, whilst Denmark reached the semi finals in EURO 2020, when they lost to England at Wembley.



Serbia v England

8pm, BBC One

Gary Lineker presents full coverage of England’s opening European Championship match, with Gareth Southgate’s side taking on Serbia in Gelsenkirchen. Commentary comes from Guy Mowbray and Alan Shearer.


England agonisingly missed out on a first European triumph three years ago, losing to Italy on penalties in the final. With Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane shining abroad this season and players such as Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka in scintillating Premier League form, the Three Lions begin their campaign amongst the favourites to lift the trophy.


Serbia are recognised as the successors to Yugoslavia, who beat England in the semi-finals of the Euros in 1968. Forwards Dusan Vlahovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic could prove a handful for the England defence.
