The group stage might have dragged on a bit, but the tournament has really lit up since the knockouts began.
With Belgium, Holland and Germany all on the plane home, the final four teams will all fancy their chances in a wide open contest.
And there's no chance we're going to deter you from a patriotic punt on England (6/4 from 9/2) after the Three Lions tore Ukraine apart in Rome.
They take on Denmark next and return to Wembley, a huge reason why their price has nose-dived and put them into favouritism.
The Home of Football is such a fortress for Southgate's side, with just two defeats there since 2014.
England will never have a better chance than this – and the nation knows it.
On the other side of the draw, Italy vs Spain looks set to be an absolute cracker.
The Italians been absolutely superb throughout the tournament, with momentum key in competitions like this.
Austria took them to extra-time, but unlike the French they didn't crumble in the extra 30 minutes and let their strength in depth do the talking.
And the way they managed the game against Belgium might not have been for everyone, but this is tournament football – all that matters is getting through.
Spain might be finding their groove at the right time but are dodgy at the back.
This Italian side have kept 11 clean sheets in 13 games. 7/5 is a great price on Italy seeing off Spain with minimal fuss.
Harry Kane was deservedly the antepost front-runner in this market.
The 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner was the top scorer in this season's Premier League with 23 goals.
In international competition, a tie in the goalscorer standings are decided by the amount of assists a player has.
And his two goals against the Ukrainians have put him back in contention for this award – but only just.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the heavy favourite to take the gong, especially with Patrik Schick now out of the competition.
Another brace or better for Kane against the Danes though and things change fast in this market.
He currently has three goals, Ronaldo has five – and a crucial assist.
You can get 4/1 on the Three Lions talisman pipping the Portuguese superstar.
Kane really did look like his proper self in Rome and will be chomping at the bit to get stuck into the Danes – get on.
Player of the tournament
This is a really interesting market and there's some excellent prices going into the final three games.
Raheem Sterling (5/1) is favourite after his superb run of form, scoring goals and laying them on.
The England winger returns to Wembley for the final two games and he absolutely loves it there – that's definitely a price worth chasing.
If you want something a bit longer and are a bit pessimistic about England's overall chances, Simon Kjaer could be a great shout.
The Dane captain has been a colossus throughout the tournament and has harnessed the emotion of Christian Eriksen's cardiac arrest.
There's a real fire behind Denmark at the moment and at 8/1, he's a value bet if the Danes can stun England on Wednesday.
