WATCH: Jon Walters - 'It's important to get off to a good start with Sweden'

Ireland striker Jon Walters has spoked of the need for Ireland to start their Euro 2016 group strongly.

Four years ago the Boys in Green lost all three of their games at Euro 2012, but fans willl be hopeful that Martin O'Neill's men can achieve significantly better results this time around.

The fitness of Walters will be key in that regard, with the Stoke attacker somewhat of a doubt for today's group opener against Sweden in Paris.

After Sweden, Ireland face Belgium in Bordeaux on June 18 before travelling to Lille to take on Italy on June 22.
