    So Siri can't give me any scores from Euro 2016 and Ok Google can?
    Seriously Apple - sort this **** out.

    Sounds like the team on Siri's backend didn't really put special handling for various soccer tournaments (at least not in US, not sure about outside of US).

    Yahoo! Sports app seems to not have anything about Euro 2016 either (basically for similar reasons it would seem).

    same here, pretty disappointing. Also add F1 to that list. One of the most prestigious and popular racing sports in the world and siri is numb about is. Another fail on Apple side!

    Apple is American company. Americans only care about Hocky and Football. I don't really get the appealing of Hocky and Football, players seems gets angry all the time.

    Soccer is much more beautiful sports

    ha Siri cant even understand "football match" in german. kept correcting it to "football players" which led to a websearch. glad to know Siri is still as useless as last time i used it in the 4S days.

    You don't get the appeal because you don't understand the sport.

    To someone who doesn't understand Soccer:

    - Players run back and forth up to 90 minutes without scoring a point.
    - Players fall to the ground and grab their legs pretending they are hurt just to get the advantage of a free kick.

    I watch American Football and Soccer FYI and I'm American.

    I think you are missing baseball and basketball (in addition to college versions of most of those as well).

    It is American company, but it sales its products globally. It amazes me how difficult it is for Apple to catch up with its services abroad (Apple Pay, Nearby, Transit, Flyover, Siri and many many more).

    There is no reason to turn this topic into a "soccer vs X" debate.

    ****. Really? That sucks. I for some reason did not think of asking her about any scores yet.

    I just tried and she understood me perfectly.

    At one point I asked Siri who was winning when Derby County were playing (I forget who the opposition was).

    For a brief period it brought up results etc but has seemingly been axed again.

    Don't they aggregate their data from Yahoo! or did I imagine that?

    Well, if various data is coming from Yahoo! for sports then the fact that Yahoo!'s own sports app doesn't know anything about Euro 2016 so far could certainly provide some potential explanations.

    Google has engineering centers across Europe, so they are more in tune.

    You're right. I just didn't take "Americans only care about Football and Hockey" too kindly.

    They'll sort it out later today. Once they open it up to developers, I'm sure there will be an app with soccer scores that you can access via Siri.
