We’ve waited a long time for this tournament, and every single country competing could do with the nationwide morale boost that comes with winning the Cup after the toll Coronavirus has taken. But sadly, only one squad of 25 players and their manager can take home the silverware, and we are going to look at which teams are most likely to go all the way and then win the final.
Generally speaking, the winners of the World Cup before the Euro’s are normally the favourites. If a European team can best the likes of Argentina and Brazil, then they must be something pretty special. And France actually did just that after winning the World Cup in 1998 by winning the Euros of 2000. So the smart money has got to be on France to do the continental double, so why not check out a few offers on pitchinvasion.net.
Despite not reaching a major tournament final in the 21st Century, Belgium somehow finds itself ranked number 1 in Fifa’s rankings. Just like Lukaku was a flat track bully at Manchester United, it seems Belgium have made their reputation on stomping smaller teams while not quite being able to beat the big boys. Perhaps this will change with the Euro’s, and perhaps it’s time for Belgium to finally fulfil all the hype that has been around them for the past five years.
Is now the time that Football is finally going to come home? England had a great World Cup in 2018 and managed to get to the Semi-Final after losing to Croatia. But now England has already beat Croatia, the demons have been exorcised, and it definitely shows improvement on an already strong England team. With seasoned pros like Harry Kane and Raheem Stirling coming into form and great performances from youngsters like Mason Mount and Phil Foden, England has a very strong chance of winning.
Italy had the pressure of the first game of the tournament at their feet. Luckily they steamrolled a plucky Turkish side 3 – 0 and laid down the gauntlet to the rest of Europe. With two superstar forwards, Immobile and Insigne, in their prime, this could be time for Italy to avenge the humiliation of not qualifying for the World Cup in 2018. Even though it’s just three short years since then, new manager Roberto Mancini has got Italy back to winning ways, and we wouldn’t put anything past the man who got Man City their first league title in 25 years.
