Euro 2012 Results: Where to Watch LIVE Italy vs. Croatia

Euro 2012 has started, and for every soccer fan, it’s the best thing to happen aside from the World Cup.

This year’s Euro Cup — a tournament played every four years — will be hosted in Poland and Ukraine. Many big name stars will be present, including Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Spain’s Xavi and Cesc Fabregas, Netherland’s Arjen Robben, England’s Wayne Rooney and John Terry, France’s Franck Ribery, and Germany’s Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

It should be an epic tournament.

TV: In the U.S., all ESPN channels will show Euro 2012 live. Fox Sports or your local Fox channel will show most of the matches. And Fox Soccer Channel will also show all the matches.

Online: All games will be shown on ESPN3 (your internet provider must allow the site)

Below are all of the games and times, for all teams in all groups, through Monday. I have taken the liberty to highlight the “don’t miss” matches (in italics), as those games should be the most fun to watch. You’re welcome.

Note: All times are in EDT.
