And Euro 2024 starts in 7, 6, 5…

The countdown to the 2024 European Football Championship has begun. In seven days, the starting gun will be fired for the continent’s most important national team tournament, with Portugal on board as a VIP passenger. The competition starts on Friday, the 14th, with a Germany-Scotland match that will celebrate an edition with 24 teams distributed across six groups and that will focus sporting attention for a month, with the final scheduled for Berlin, in mid-July.

Until we get there, Portugal will play two more preparation games. After triumph over Finland, the national team faces Croatia, this Saturday (5:45 p.m., RTP), at the Estádio do Jamor – a greater test of organization and defensive transition than a few days ago -, and closes the agenda on Tuesday against the Republic of Ireland (7:45 pm, Aveiro), before the trip to Germany. Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruben Neves have already joined the group, but will only compete against the Irish.

In Rome, the European Athletics Championship continues. Portugal has already entered the competition (with the largest entourage of its history), but the main medal candidates will only compete for the podium, if everything goes well, at the beginning of next week. On Sunday, Pedro Pablo Pichardo will compete in the triple jump qualification (the final will be on Tuesday), and a day later it will be Isaac Nader’s turn to compete in the 1500m qualifiers (if he qualifies, he will discuss the final on Wednesday). fair).

At Roland Garros, it will be a weekend of finals. On Saturday, the decisive match of the women’s tournament will put Polish Iga Swiatek face to face, who reaches the decisive meeting in Paris for the fourth time, and Italian newcomer Jasmine Paolini (2pm). On Sunday, the men’s final will take place, pitting Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz (who eliminated Jannik Sinner in the semi-finals) against the winner of the clash between Casper Ruud and Alexander Zverev.

The ninth stop of the 2024 Formula World Championship season will be made in Montreal, home of the Canadian Grand Prix. Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) episodically broke Red Bull’s dominance in the very characteristic Monaco GP, and reduced the disadvantage to the leader of the Drivers’ World Championship, Max Verstappen – the Dutchman now leads with a difference of 31 points. The green light will come on at 7pm on Sunday.
