Much like the Joker and Batman, polar opposites who are defined in each other's image, we've come to assess Messi and Ronaldo against each other, not in a vacuum but as a tandem. It's the privilege and curse that comes with being the two best players on the planet right now.

We were reminded of this dynamic at the start of Euro 2016, when Iceland defender Kari Arnason pointedly...

With the quarterfinals upon us, Euro 2016 finally feels like it has shaken out the lesser teams and we're left with some tantalising matchups from here on in. For the neutral, the tournament is well poised with the majority of fancied teams still involved and star players starting to shine. Well-coached units such as Iceland and Italy will have to see if their work ethic can overcome opponents with greater individual talent.
