Euro 2016 - First round of matches

It's pretty interesting how all opening group matches at Euro 2016 so far have ended up in 'classic' or 'guessable' 1-0, 1-1, 2-1 or 2-0 scorelines. There hasn't been a game with a 0-0 draw, nor has there been a game with 3 or more goals scored by one side. Nor has there been a game with more than 3 goals scored between both parties.

On one view of the matter, this might be considered boring for those fans who want to see a goalfest sort of game. On another view, I think this is pretty cool because it suggests how close and evenly-matched the teams are at Euro 2016.

Iceland and Hungary, for example, have certainly punched above their weight.

I'm looking forward to seeing more upsets this tournament. Go Iceland and Northern Ireland!!!
