There is no Next Episode of Match of the Day planned.
The BBC will bring audiences a month-long festival of European football including every step of England, Wales and Northern Ireland's journeys at Euro 2016, alongside Europe's elite
Gary Lineker presents highlights from the opening game of Euro 2016, in which hosts France took on Romania at the Stade de France, Paris. The final will take place a month today in the same stadium, but before that, 50 matches will be fought out as teams strive to earn the right to be crowned European champions.
France won the tournament the last time they hosted it back in 1984, and would dearly love to repeat that feat. The man in charge of Les Bleus is Didier Deschamps, who knows what it is like to captain France to World Cup and Euros success – can he repeat that feat as a manager?
Dan Walker presents live coverage of the second match of Euro 2016 as Albania take on Switzerlan
This is Albania's first-ever appearance at a major finals and expectations will be high back home that they can caused an upset against the Swiss, whose talisman is Stoke's Xherdan Shaqiri.
Dan is joined in the studio by Thierry Henry and Danny Murphy, while commentary comes from Simon Brotherton and Kevin Kilbane.
Wales are making their debut at the finals of a European Championship and it is the first time they have played in a major tournament since the 1958 World Cup. Led by talisman Gareth Bale, Chris Coleman's side take on a Slovakia team captained by Liverpool's Martin Skrtel.
Gary is joined in the studio by Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand, while Steve Wilson and Robbie Savage provide the commentary.
Boss Michael O'Neill has targeted a place in the knockout stage in France, but they face a tricky opening match in Group C against a Poland side containing striker Robert Lewandowski, who top scored in qualification with 13 goals. Gary is joined by Neil Lennon and Rio Ferdinand, while commentary comes from Guy Mowbray and Gerry Armstrong.
Joachim Low's side were World Cup winners two years ago in Brazil, but they have not been at their best since and have suffered a string of defeats, most notably against England in a friendly in March. Group C opponents Ukraine qualified for France via the play-offs. Gary is joined in the studio by Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry. Commentary comes from Jonathan Pearce and Danny Murphy.
There's another chance to watch Northern Ireland's opening match of Euro 2016 against Poland in full on BBC Two later from 2am to 3.40am.
The Republic of Ireland are taking part in their third European Championship campaign, and will be hopeful of winning only their second ever finals match – the last was a famous victory against England at Euro '88.
Like the Irish, Sweden had to come through the play-offs to qualify for this tournament, with the goals of brilliant striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic proving decisive. With tricky games against Belgium and Italy to come in the group stage, both sides will be desperate to get off to a winning start. Alan Shearer and Kevin Kilbane provide studio analysis, with commentary from Jonathan Pearce and Mark Lawrenson.
The clash at the Stade de Lyon should be one of the outstanding games of the group stage. The Belgians boast a very strong squad, featuring Premier League stars such as Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, and are among the tournament favourites.
Italy were runners-up at Euro 2012 and qualified for this tournament unbeaten. Under coach Antonio Conte – who will take over at Chelsea this summer – they are a side in transition. But the Azzurri backline, featuring legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and defensive stalwart Giorgio Chiellini, will be a tough nut to crack. Studio analysis comes from Thierry Henry and Gianluca Vialli, with commentary from Steve Wilson and Martin Keown.
There's also another chance to see full coverage of today's Euro 2016 group game between the Republic of Ireland and Sweden at the Stade de France later from 2am to 3.40am on BBC Two.
Iceland are making their debut at a major tournament but their squad contains several talented players – such as Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who was their top scorer in qualifying with six goals.
As ever, Portuguese hopes rest largely on the brilliance of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Real Madrid superstar has won virtually every conceivable honour at club level, but chances are running out for him to lift silverware with his country.
There's another chance to see full coverage of one of today's Euro 2016 group games later on BBC Two from 0200 to 0340.
Russia, the 2018 World Cup hosts, are looking to re-establish themselves on the international scene. They were inaugural European champions in 1960 as the Soviet Union and have finished as runners-up on three occasions.
Slovakia are appearing at their first European Championship. They impressed on their last showing at a major tournament, beating defending champions Italy at the 2010 World Cup en route to the last 16.
Martin Keown, Robbie Savage and Jermain Jenas provide expert analysis, while Guy Mowbray and Mark Lawrenson supply the commentary.
The mouth-watering encounter is one of the most intriguing matches of the group stages, and has been eagerly awaited since the draw was made last December. Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane will be among those on display for England, while Real Madrid star Gareth Bale and Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey are set to feature for Wales.
England have won the last four encounters between the sides since Wales claimed a 1-0 victory in 1984.
Gary Lineker leads the presentation.
Gary Lineker is joined by studio guests Thierry Henry, Danny Murphy and Neil Lennon for live coverage of the Group D game between Czech Republic and Croatia in Saint Etienne
Croatia have twice reached the quarter-finals, on debut in 1996 and again in 2008, and they boast one of the strongest midfields in world football, headlined by Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic of Barcelona. However, they struggled to qualify for Euro 2016 and new coach Ante Cacic remains an unpopular choice with the majority of fans, despite making the best start of any Croatia head coach.
The Czech Republic are ever-presents at the European Championship since independence and, in the absence of any true stars, coach Pavel Vrba has instilled a team ethic into his attack-minded, possession-based side.
Commentary comes from Steve Wilson and Kevin Kilbane.
With a population of just 330,000, Iceland is the smallest country to have qualified for a European Championship or World Cup. But they were hugely impressive in qualifying, beating the Netherlands home and away and also defeating the Czech Republic and Turkey.
Hungary were once one of European football's heavyweights - the ‘Magical Magyars' that famously taught England a football lesson at Wembley in 1953, and they were World Cup finalists in 1938 and 1954. Though unfancied this summer, they will be hoping to recapture past glories.
John Hartson is amongst the studio guests, while commentary comes from Steve Wilson and Robbie Savage.
Portugal are consistent performers at the European Championship, reaching at least the quarter-finals in each of the last five tournaments. They were beaten finalists as hosts in 2004, and suffered heartbreak again in 2012, losing on penalties to Iberian rivals Spain. While Cristiano Ronaldo remains Portugal's key attacking weapon, a new wave of young talent - including Renato Sanches and Joao Mario - will also be looking to make their mark on the international stage.
However, Austria will be tough opponents: they qualified unbeaten, winning nine of their 10 games, and boast midfield talents including Bayern Munich's David Alaba and Stoke's Marko Arnautovic.
Studio analysis comes from Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand, with commentary from Guy Mowbray and Martin Keown.
Manish Bhasin introduces coverage as Romania take on Albania in their final group game at Euro 2016. Trevor Sinclair and Dion Dublin provide studio analysis, with commentary from Simon Brotherton and Mark Lawrenson.
The two sides also met at the group stage of the 2014 World Cup, with France recording an impressive 5-2 victory - although both teams went on to reach the knock-out stage.
The Swiss laboured in qualification for Euro 2016, losing home and away to England, so a win against their neighbours and tournament hosts would be a real coup for Vladimir Petkovic's side. France, meanwhile, will be eager to finish top of the group - if at all possible - as it could mean they avoid facing a fellow heavyweight in the last 16.
Gary Lineker presents highlights of the final group matches involving England and Wales in Group B. England face Slovakia in Saint-Etienne, while Wales take on Russia in Toulouse. With both games kicking off simultaneously, could both home nations secure their progress to the last 16? Gary is joined by Alan Shearer and Danny Murphy.
Michael O'Neill's side face a tough match against Joachim Low's World Cup winners at the Stade de France in Paris. The Germans are blessed with a frightening array of talent across their squad - can the Northern Irish upset the odds and book a place in the last 16?
Gary is joined in the studio by Alan Shearer, Neil Lennon and Jens Lehmann. Commentary comes from Jonathan Pearce and Gerry Armstrong.
Live coverage as Ukraine and Poland face each other at the Stade Velodrome, Marseille, in their final group match at Euro 2016. Commentary by Simon Brotherton and Mark Lawrenson.
Northern Ireland conclude their group fixtures with a daunting match against 2014 World Cup winners Germany, while group rivals Poland and Ukraine meet in Marseille. In Group D, defending Euro 2012 champions Spain play Croatia and the Czech Republic finish off against Turkey.
Portugal have reached at least the quarter-finals in each of the last five tournaments and boast the most celebrated European player in the modern game, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portugal captain could make a record 17th appearance in the European Championship finals in this game.
Hungary is competing in their first major tournament for 30 years, having come through a disjointed and chaotic qualifying campaign to progress via the play-offs under new coach Bernd Storck. The German has attempted to instil a more attacking approach from his side, with captain Balazs Dzsudzsak as instrumental for Hungary as Ronaldo is for his country.
Simon Brotherton and Martin Keown provide the commentary.
In Group E, the Republic of Ireland faced 2012 finalists Italy in Lille, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Sweden were up against a fancied Belgium side. Portugal met Hungary in Group F, with Iceland and Austria also in action.
There is also another chance to watch the Republic of Ireland's final group match against Italy on BBC Two between 2am and 3.40am.
