It will go down as one of the great tournament days, as Spain battled past Croatia before France were sensationally knocked out on penalties by Switzerland
And that result in Bucharest has sent this market wide open.
It's tough to split the top four in the betting, with England, Germany, Italy and Spain the front-runners.
And that's before we even get onto Belgium.
We're not going to deter you from a patriotic punt on England (9/2), with the Three Lions – for the most part – playing on home soil throughout.
This could prove a huge advantage as Wembley is such a fortress for Southgate's side, with just two defeats there since 2014.
Germany are next up at the Home of Football and if the Three Lions can negotiate that clash, they are on the right side of the draw to have a real run to the final.
But we feel this youthful England side is a couple of years too early to end all those years of hurt – and therefore our pick for overall winner are Italy (4/1)
They've 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.
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 12 games. 4/1 is a great price, don't miss out.
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.
But he's failed to fire in either of the opening three matches, drawing a blank against Scotland, Croatia and Czech Republic.
If you're looking for longer value, Ciro Immobile is worth a go at 20/1.
The Italians potentially have three games left and he has been getting chances galore in the opening four.
With Italy tipped to go all the way, he needs another three to catch up with Cristiano Ronaldo and we wouldn't put that past him.
A quickfire double and he's very much back in the race – plus he's already bagged an assist too.
At 20/1, that's the real value in the current market.
Player of the tournament
Is this tournament finally the time for Belgium to fulfill their potential?
Beaten semi-finalists in the World Cup three years ago, the Red Devils have the market leader for player of the tournament in their ranks.
Value is the name of the game and Belgium have cruised through the group stages after seeing off Russia, Denmark and Finland with minimal fuss.
And they will continue to look to former Man Utd and Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku to keep supplying the goals.
The 28-year-old striker has been a revelation for Inter Milan since heading to Italy, netting over 60 times in two seasons.
Originally available at a whopping 20/1, he's still a real value bet in this market after smashing in three group stage goals (now 8/1).
