EURO 2016 – The Cynics Predict

With this summer’s biggest international tournament now underway (no not the Copa America) we asked the @90minutecynic team for their predictions for the tournament.  The predictions are based on an in depth knowledge of international football, extensive game based statistics and, of course, absolute guesswork!
