Tonight’s TV: Naked Eva Mendes after Ireland v Spain
Tonight’s TV has a lot to offer, not least a naked Eva Mendes. Maybe slightly more important that that is Ireland v Spain in the Euros. Either way, it should be a great televisual night.
Main Pick: Euro 2012 Ireland v Spain , RTÉ 2, 7.30pm
Spain v Republic of Ireland (Kick-off 7.45pm). Coverage of our second round Group C match, staged at the Arena Gdansk in Poland.

The most recent meeting between these nations took place at the 2002 World Cup, when Ireland, then managed by Mick McCarthy, produced a valiant display in the last 16 that before being eliminated on penalties, with the teams level at 1-1 after extra-time. Presented by Bill O’Herlihy, with commentary by Stephen Alkin, Brian Kerr, George Hamilton and Ronnie Whelan, and analysis by John Giles, Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady.
