Numb the pain of cheering on England with our UEFA Euro 2016 football drinking game, which can be played during any Euros match, but is especially dangerous during an ITV showing.
Football and drinking are two of Britain’s favourite past-times, and so why not combine them into a glorious living room sport of your own? Our Euro 2016 drinking game will help you to get through every painful, stilted England performance in the Euros, and make that infamous ITV commentary even more dangerous to your health.
All you need to take part is some sort of telly device and a crate of your favourite booze. Remember, kiddies, that this game is for over-18s only and should be enjoyed responsibly. So raise your tankard and steel your stomach with a pickled onion sandwich and get ready for a month of glorious footy action.
