Euro 2012 is well and truly  into the business end of the tournament, as the group games are now completed and the quarter finals are now upon us. The knockout stages are now up and running and there some intriguing matches that lay ahead of us in the coming days. France v Spain is obviously the pick of the round, but every game has its own individual twist.

Football FanCast will continue to cover the tournament via a combination of regular blogs, interviews and news, as well as regular match commentary via our Facebook and Twitter pages – we will also be recording a video diary on location in Poland and the Ukraine, getting the views direct from the travelling fans and Tom Skinner will be doing his regular ‘Football Coffee Break’ reflecting on the Euros over here in the UK.
