Can Iceland continue Cinderella run by stunning France?
Wednesday June 29th, 2016

And so we have reached the Euro 2016 quarterfinals. The tournament began slowly, thanks largely to the new enlarged format which meant that after a week of barely any jeopardy, there have suddenly been major eliminations almost every day. Of the sides that looked as though they had a clear chance of success, Spain has gone, and of the teams in the next tier, that of possible outsiders, so too have Croatia and England.

The draw, meanwhile, has left the competition weirdly imbalanced, so that Italy or Germany’s route to the final, for instance, is far trickier than that of, say Belgium or Portugal.

So, taking all that into account, here is the ranking of the eight remaining sides in the tournament, in order of likelihood of winning:
