Euro Football Extravaganza

There is no doubting the world game. Played by more, watched by most, Football or Soccer (to the less pure of heart) commands the attention of the entire planet. Supporters are more passionate, salaries are more ludicrous and the excitement of standing in the crowds as they chant and roar is not to be forgotten. Immerse yourself in some of the most vibrant and arguably best leagues in the world. We choose games from England's Premier League, Spain's La Liga, Italy's Serie A, Germany’s Bundesliga and Russia’s Premier League
