Don’t get your kicks from football? Tough luck, because this next month it’s going to be what everyone else is talking about. For everyone else, #HappyEuro2016!
Google marked the start of Euro 2016 in France with a special Doodle, featuring a cute smiling Eiffel Tower and the flags of all 24 nations competing in this year’s tournament.
In another version, a cockerel (a coq sportif if you will) heralds the dawn of a new major championship, decked out in the Tricolore.
Over 300 million are expected to tune in to this year’s tournament – although, checking Google’s Doodle stats, the soccer hasn’t quite caught on in the States yet.
Euro 2016 begins this evening with hosts France v Romania, before England face Russia and Wales play Slovakia on Saturday.
