We reviewed the official Euro 2016 match day menu (so you don't have to)

Matchday menu

Two indisputable facts:

  1. The French make great food.
  2. Football stadiums serve terrible food.

So, with Euro 2016 being held in France, I decided to find out which of these truths would give, and if the Universe would survive this shift in its fundaments, by heading to the England vs Wales game and trying out the entire official Uefa match day menu.

Leaping into a Kia (who sponsor the Euros, but apparently have no involvement in menu choices), I drove from London to Lens, passing up the offerings of every service station en route, keeping my powder dry and my belly empty in anticipation of steak and kidney croissants or vin de Bovril.

Legging it to the food counter five minutes before half time, and missing Joe Hart’s gift to the Welsh people, I got stuck in. Sadly, they were out of hot dogs and tuna baguettes, and I refused to buy the popcorn because it has no place at a football match (or a cinema, IMHO), but I did manage to plough my way through eight of the available items. These are my expert opinions.
