Euro 2016: Where to watch, what to watch, when to watch

(CNN)It’s a solid month of soccer: 51 games, 24 countries and millions of fans.

Euro 2016, the second-biggest soccer tournament in the world behind the World Cup — is upon us.

Where can I watch?

    On the various ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes). You can also stream it live on the WatchESPN app. Watching outside the United States? Games are probably on a national broadcaster, like ITV and BBC in the U.K., beIN Sports in Australia, TSN in Canada, Sony Six in India, Al Jazeera Sport in the Mideast and North Africa or Globo TV in Brazil.

    Who should I root for?

    Germany for sure. It’s the current World Cup champ. And Belgium, the top-ranked FIFA squad in the tournament. Talented host team France may lack experience, but will get a jolt from the home crowds.

    Super

    Since this is a soccer tournament, I assume there’s an official song?

    Yes. And it’s a pretty catchy David Guetta ditty.
