“THE GROUP OF DEATH BELGIUM ITALY REPUBLIC OF IRELAND SWEDEN” INSIDE FOOD FOR GAME NIGHTS HOW TO PACK SMART 2016 IN FANTASY FILMS ODD SUMMERS ARE ALWAYS DISAPPOINTING for fans of European football. Teams have settled league and cup titles, players have long placed individual awards on their shelves, nursed their injuries and rested their bodies. There is the interminable boredom of spending weekends away from the couch and television minus any topflight football. There is nothing to do but wait until August when leagues begin. Every alternate June evens things out, though… This is one of those thrilling mid-years, with the UEFA European Championship in France and 24 nations to contest the trophy. Will Spain do a three-peat of the tournament they won in 2008 and 2012? Will France successfully ride the home advantage? Will…

young guns!

ANTHONY MARTIAL France In his debut season in England, Martial has impressed with his ball-playing and finishing skills. The clinical striker will hope to catch more eyes and lead the line for the hosts. RENATO SANCHES Portugal The powerful midfielder, who has signed for Bayern Munich from Benfica, is often called the best Portuguese talent after Cristiano Ronaldo. LEROY SANÉ Germany Sané, 20, might find his appearances limited at the tournament, what with Germany having a glut of star names, but will look to make an impact when given a chance. DELE ALLI England Speedy, tricky, and mighty impressive in Spurs’ Premier League campaign, Alli has already scored on his full international debut in a friendly win over France. He will be hoping to score many more. JOSHUA KIMMICH Germany A versatile midfielder who has also played in defence at Bayern Munich, the youngster…

CRISTIANO RONALDO Portugal Senior and more experienced, Ronaldo remains the focal point of attack in a mediocre side. After a gruelling season with Real Madrid, will it be a tired Ronaldo or an energised, inspired one who rocks up in France? ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC Sweden At 34, the magnificent Swede will probably put in his last appearance at the Euros. There should be a bagload of trickery and oomph, but don’t expect Ibra to drag his team over the line. GARETH BALE Wales Wales go into the tournament as dark horses, and one Mr. Bale could be the main reason behind it. With competent teammates like Aaron Ramsey and Ashley Williams, Wales can make their match against England in the group stage very exciting. DAVID ALABA Austria A crowd favourite at Bayern Munich football club, the midfielder has been named the best…

the goal standard

CRISTIANO RONALDO DOS SANTOS AVEIRO wakes up every day in a compound of a home in Madrid. A Mercedes, a Bentley, a Lamborghini, and a Rolls-Royce are parked outside. A closet of designer shirts are ready to accentuate his perfectly toned figure. A private jet sits on standby. And he tells himself something that would sound pompous if it weren’t, well, completely true: “I’m the best,” he says to Maxim a few days after he’s won his fourth Golden Shoe, the award for the most prolific goal scorer in Europe. “That I am the best is why I continue to improve. This is why I achieve so many great things.” “I LIKE TO WIN. I KNOW THAT IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO ALWAYS WIN, BUT WE CAN ALWAYS TRY TO WIN IN EVERYTHING…

pack mentality

YEARS AGO, BEFORE BESPOKE LUGGAGE MAKER GOYARD WAS A brand well-known in the U.S. (or anywhere outside of France, for that matter) and while a certain Louis was not just a former French king but the king of handbags everywhere, I strolled into the Goyard store on the slightly less-travelled end of the Rue Saint Honoré and saw, on top of an assortment of handsome trunks, an odd-looking one. It was long and narrow and opened in the middle, revealing two sections with long leather belts to secure the contents. The salesperson, spying a potential American with money, immediately sidled up to me in the empty store and asked if I “knew” Goyard. Oui, I did, and I also knew the repeating chevron pattern was a mark of understated snobbery—only…
