EURO 2020 is finally here!

Kylian Mbappe was reportedly left fuming after Olivier Giroud publicly criticised him for failing to pass.

The PSG star was so angry with the Champions League winner’s comments after the friendly with Bulgaria that he reportedly wanted to call a press conference to explain his point of view.

And things didn’t turn out much better for France’s other striker Karim Benzema, who went off injured.

Meanwhile Denmark and Romania are set to announce an increase in the number of fans that can attend their Euro 2020 games – to 65 and 50 per cent respectively.

And we’ve got the very latest on star defender Harry Maguire’s injury comeback for England.

    Manchester United ace Harry Maguire returned to England training on the eve of Euro 2020 and has given the Three Lions a major boost before their tournament opener.

    Maguire linked up with the rest of the team for practice as he continues his recovery from an ankle ligament injury.

    The centre-back missed United’s Europa League Final against Villarreal, who won on penalties, due to his ongoing knock.

    However, the 28-year-old defender has handed Southgate a significant injury boost ahead of Sunday’s opener with Croatia.

    Meanwhile, Wembley could be half full for the Euro 2020 knockout stages, according to plans being discussed by the Football Association and the government.

    That is according to BBC Sport, who report that talks are ongoing regarding 40,000 fans being allowed in regardless of whether the easing of current restrictions is delayed.

    The historic stadium will host all of England's matches in the group stage against Croatia, Scotland and the Czech Republic as well as two last-16 ties, both semi-finals and the final.

    Fans attending The Three Lions' group stage games at Wembley will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test before entry.

    And Real Madrid superstar Karim Benzema looks likely to compete at Euro 2020 despite the knock he suffered against Bulgaria.

    Benzema picked up a knee injury and hobbled off the pitch in tears, which raised concern over his fitness ahead of the summer’s Euros.

    However, France boss Didier Deschamps is confident the star striker is going to be fit in time for Tuesday’s opener against Germany.

    Journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi backed Deschamps’ claims as he said there is 'no worry 'for Benzema who will return to training in 72 hours at the latest.

    Bouhafsi tweeted: “No worries for KB9! Karim’s muscle deflated that night and the pain was less.

    "Nevertheless, the star of #Real was not scheduled to train this Wednesday. He will resume his training path within 48 to 72 hours maximum."

    And finally, France stars Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud appear to have been embroiled in a public spat just a day before Euro 2020 kicks off.

    It all started in the Tricolores' last warm-up game against Bulgaria where Giroud was not impressed with his service after coming on as a substitute, particularly from Mbappe.

    The Chelsea striker said after the game: "Sometimes you make the runs and the ball is not arriving. Perhaps we could have found each other better, there it is.”

    According to L'Equipe, the ex-Arsenal ace's comments angered the Paris Saint-Germain superstar so much that he was ready to issue a public response to clear the air.
