After 18 years, France was set to host another major international football tournament. 

The chance to go to a Eurocup in France sounded so sick we began planning it a year in advance. We applied for tickets early on and meticulously planned our travel around it. The matchups we witnesses were awesome – we went to the Spain vs. Italy second round match in Paris and the Portugal vs. Poland quarter final in Marseille.
