With all the group stage fixtures of Euro 2016 now behind us, we can look back on the games gone by and assess the performances of those involved. 

While nerves may have played a part in the opening match, teams eventually settled and some players stood out above the rest as they helped their teams through to the knockout stages, or struggled to keep them in contention. 

Vote below in our poll to choose the best players of the group stages, and we'll reveal the final XI, as chosen by you, before the knockout fixtures begin.
