This year's Euros are in full swing and whether your nation is represented or not as we near the final it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement.

There are eight teams left in contention, but here at FineDiningLovers we want want to know which nation can deliver where it matters most, in the kitchen!

Here's a list of quintessential terrace food and snacks traditionally enjoyed by supporters of the remaining teams in UEFA Euro 2016; Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Wales.

Whether at home or away and with a cold beer, vinho verde or a cider, who's match snack food has got your support this Euro 2016?


Belgium supporters will enjoy a stadium side snack of hot fries, lashings of mayonnaise and a cold beer to wash it all down. 



Meanwhile, French supporters might well enjoy a galette or crêpe at half time perhaps with a 'saucisse' filling. "Eating is not cheating" despite what well lubricated fans may tell you, although a chilled dry cider wouldn't go amiss. You could even try making your own ricotta crêpes if you want to lend support.



While fans around the country have their own traditional variations on the 'half-time' snack, you'll never go far wrong with the classic beer and bratwurst pairing. Here's the recipe for some delicious currywurst sauce to top that off.



Despite popular belief, the Icelandics probably won't be stocking up on fermented shark or whale meat and more than likely tucking into a hot dog and soda. (Although we still couldn't resist the gratuitous photo opportunity).

While the Italian team load up on carbs with a pre-match pasta, supporters will enjoy tucking into one of Italy's most beloved terrace foods according to's Paolo Menicucci –  'salamella' or 'salsiccia' is a grilled sausage usually served inside a bread roll.

Portguese food lends itself easily to a few traditional snack foods to be enjoyed matchside. Take your pick from three meaty options: bifanas, entremeadas and couratos.



The hot snack food of choice will probably be sausages and hot dogs, although we have it on good authority seeds are also a popular snack to enjoy during intense nail–biting moments. If you're looking for something more traditional try Gołąbki (stuffed cabbage leaves) as a healthy home–cooked alternative.



And last but not least, Welsh fans won't go far wrong with a handheld meat pie and a mug of tea to cheer on their team.
