Euro 2016 Soccer Tournament Kicks Off

The European Soccer Championship, which began this month in France, has already seen its fair share of drama as fan violence and hooliganism has found its way back into the games. 

After fans from Russia and England clashed last week, UEFA, the governing board of European football, threatened to kick Russia out of the tournament if they were to repeat their actions. 

We discuss the latest from Euro 2016 with Russian soccer analyst Pavel Yuism and Euan Hague, professor of geography at DePaul University. We also get an update of the Copa America Centenario tournament in the United States.
