Who to Watch Out for
With all these incredible teams playing, who exactly should you be looking to for the potential winners of the tournament in the days to come.
The frighteningly strong team that Germany has put together is definitely going to be a key player in the games to come; with players like Mats Hummels and Joshua Kimmich, the incredible team is sure to put in some incredible plays, even with the rough start they’ve experienced so far in the iconic “Group of Death”.
Similarly, France is an incredibly skilled team. Already crowned the world champions, the incredible French team is considered one of the favourites to take the Euro home as well, and with players like Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba, it isn’t hard to see why either.
The favourite to win this competition, one of the main advantages that England has this year is that both the semi-final and final matches will be played in Wembley stadium. England rarely loses in its home stadium, which means that as long as the lions last that long, they will have quite the advantage when it comes to their final matches.
The defending champions, Portugal, are an incredibly strong team, and many reckon that there is a solid chance that they will be taking the trophy home once again. However, facing up against France and Germany in “The Group of Death” will be no mean feat, which means it’ll all come down to performance.
They might be an outside bet, going 15 years without winning an international trophy, but Italy has been performing extremely well so far, and they seem to be going from strength to strength with a sight to end that 15-year streak finally.
