Read on to find out more about the goals, the venues and for your chance to win a set of Finesse goals.
Around the grounds
With so many matches taking place, here is a short guide to the venues that will be using Harrod Sport goals during the tournament.
Wembley Stadium - London (8 matches)
Since the 'White Horse' FA Cup final of 1923, the goals at Wembley Stadium have become a part of English football folklore. In 1966, the crossbar became iconic with Geoff Hurst's 'goal that never was' in the World Cup final versus West Germany. In 1977, Scotland took the bragging rights as the Tartan Army swarmed onto the pitch to celebrate after the final whistle following a famous 2-1 victory.
The last time England and Scotland met at a major tournament was at Wembley in the Euro '96 group stages, best remembered for Paul Gasgoine's goal and celebration. Twenty-five years later, will Andy Robertson and Che Adams' side be able to upset the auld enemy?
