Summary

Germany v Ukraine (Kick-off 8.00pm). Gary Lineker presents coverage of the opening match in Group C for both teams, which takes place at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille. This will be just the sixth overall meeting between these nations, and the first at a major tournament, and the Ukrainians will be chasing their maiden victory over the reigning world champions. Following their triumph in Brazil, Joachim Loew's men got off to a rocky start in the qualifying campaign, but eventually went on to top a group that also contained Republic of Ireland and Scotland, and they will be considered among the favourites to lift the trophy in France, and claim it for the fourth time. Their opponents are appearing at a European Championships for just the second time, with the first coming four years ago when they served as co-hosts alongside Poland, although it is worth noting that they have only been eligible as a nation since 1996, having formerly been a part of the Soviet Union. With commentary by Jonathan Pearce and Danny Murphy, and analysis by Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer.
