Match of the tournament England 1-2 Iceland. A night England will probably never live down but, more than anything, one of the great underdog narratives of any international tournament.
Player of the tournament Antoine Griezmann. Yes, he could not influence the final, but the third Frenchman in history to finish as the top scorer in a major tournament, emulating Michel Platini from 1984 and Just Fontaine in the 1958 World Cup.
Goal of the tournament Cristiano Ronaldo vs Hungary. Apparently Ronaldo was finished, washed-up , no longer a player to fear. That improvisational flick behind his standing leg at high speed was a nice riposte.
Personal highlighting An unexpected invitation to watch Wales vs Northern Ireland from behind Chris Colemans dugout. Lowlights: stinging into a slab of butter reasoning it was cheese. See also: strolling into a lamp-post outside Englands hotel.
Biggest frustration A day in Marseille genuinely guessing someone would end up being kicked to demise. Or Uefas killjoys charging Wales for the heinous crime of the players inviting their children on to the pitch to celebrate their wins.
Team of the tournament Wales. An honorary mention to Iceland but only consider one of the players Chris Coleman brought on to try to rescue their semi-final against Portugal: Simon Church, a striker who could not get into the MK Dons side that finished second from bottom of the Championship last season.
Fondest memory of France The same as at every major tournament taking your seat for the final, remembering you should feel fortunate to be in this profession.
What now for England ? My hunch is that Sam Allardyce might get the job instead of Jrgen Klinsmann ignoring the fact that Slaven Bilic has taken West Ham to a different level since Allardyce left the club.
Match of the tournament There was no outstanding game. Some were a lot better than others but there were no classic encounters worth digging out and replaying 20 years from now. Hungary 3-3 Portugal looked a lot of fun but the best game I attended was Wales 3-1 Belgium. A fabulous night for the Welsh but a bit one-sided in the end.
Player of the tournament Antoine Griezmann announced himself fairly effectively to all the non-believers, even before running away with the golden boot. Aaron Ramsey was in the running until his unfortunate suspension. Cristiano Ronaldo was exceptional and unignorable but lost phases for belittling Iceland.
Goal of the tournament Hal Robson-Kanu against Belgium. Ronaldos towering header against Wales was pretty good too, but weve insured him do that before. Robson-Kanus effort had the priceless element of astonish. I had a quick seminar with my colleagues in the Lille press box and we agreed we were all gobsmacked.
Personal highlight Stepping off a crowded mtro in Paris, hearing the rucku make use of both sets of supporters singing Will Griggs on Fire fade into the distance.
Biggest letdown Thats a little bit obvious, isnt it? England played four games and still objective up not knowing their best team. While that situation remains they have no hope of playing as effectively as a squad as Iceland and Wales.
Team of the tournament Wales. They caught the imagination more than anyone and reaching the last four at Belgiums expense was a bigger achievement than Iceland beating a clueless England. They might even have gone farther extra hour at the least if they had not been hit by suspensions.
Fondest memory of France It was interesting being there the day the Brexit result was declared. There was a certain sum of sarcasm therefore welcomed Europe etc but most people were keens to know which way I had voted and why. Few people seemed to take sides on such issues but everyone was interested in the debate. The food was a considerable upgrade on Brazil 2014 too.
What now for England? At club level to fail so badly would result in relegation. In some routes it is a pity nothing similar exists in international football to concentrate the intellect, cut out unnecessary luxuries and lead to an acceptance among players, fans, administrators and anyone else with an interest that nothing can be taken for granted. It is not as clear what England have to do to regain lost status. As soon as we win a couple of friendlies or qualifiers we tend to fall into the same trap of overexcitement all over again. Hiring a new coach is the obvious next step and already it is being invested with more rite than appears necessary. It would be ridiculous to start the season with a temporary manager when there are viable candidates who would step in right now. The FA has been known to pay people on the basis that the England directors job is the most important in world football but it is not by a long way.
