Euro 2020 TV Schedule USA: Round of 16 Games Times, Dates, How to Watch on TV and Online

Almost two weeks have passed and 36 games have been played since Euro 2020 kicked off a year later than scheduled.

Over the past 12 days, the competition has delivered a combination of the sublime— witness some of Belgium's goals and Italy's ruthless brilliance—the comical— Slovakia's goalkeeper Martin Dubravka will never want to see his calamitous mistake against Spain again—and the downright dramatic as Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field following a cardiac arrest.

The 24 teams that entered the tournament have been whittled down to 16, as Euro 2020 reaches the business end with the knockout stages due to begin on Saturday.

There are lots of compelling storylines in the Round of 16, none more so than England and Germany colliding at Wembley Stadium exactly a quarter of a century since they met in the same venue—albeit in its old incarnation, which was replaced by the current stadium at the turn of the century—in the semifinal of Euro 96.

Current England manager Gareth Southgate's miss proved the difference as Germany won the penalty shootout and ultimately defeated the Czech Republic in the final. England won Group D despite scoring just twice, but it's yet to concede a goal, while Germany needed a late equalizer against Hungary in the final game of Group F to progress.

France and Portugal, the reigning world and European champions, respectively, also qualified from the so-called Group of Death, but their paths toward the final couldn't look more different. France takes on Switzerland on Monday and could face the winner of the game between Croatia and Spain in the quarterfinals, while Portugal faces Belgium on Sunday, with the victor taking on the winner of the tie between Italy and Austria.

Belgium and Italy—along with the Netherlands, which takes on the Czech Republic—are the only two sides to have won all their three group games and they have looked mightily impressive so far. Elsewhere, Wales will be looking to reach the quarterfinals for the second consecutive tournament when it plays Denmark on Saturday, while the winner of Sweden vs. Ukraine on Tuesday will play either England or Germany.

Here's all you need to know to keep up with the action.
