The Euro 2016 football championships kick off in France on 10 June, with fans eagerly awaiting a month-long feast of football.

While much discussion has been around which nation will go on to win the tournament, there has been little focus on the big teams who could perform badly this summer. From France at Euro 2008 to the Netherlands at Euro 2012, to England and Italy at the 2014 World Cup; international tournaments often see one or two of the major footballing nations failing to live up to lofty expectations.

Despite an expanded tournament of 24 teams featuring more smaller nations, there is no reason to suggest that pattern will be broken. France are under increasing pressure to make the most of home advantage, while neighbours Belgium have yet to amaze despite their team being recognised as the best in a generation. Spain are still without an effective forward line following their humiliating group stage exit at the 2014 World Cup, while reigning world champions Germany have been far less effective since their triumph in Brazil two years ago.

In this video, IBTimes UK sports writers assess the nations that could flop in France.
