Who wins the Euro 2021?
With the qualifying completed for the Euro’s in the past week, our heads turn to the highly anticipated finals of the competition which is now just around the corner. Just last week, there were 4 more additions to the competition as North Macedonia beat Georgia 1-0, Hungary beat Iceland 2-1, Slovakia beat Northern Island 2-1 and Scotland beat Serbia in remarkable fashion on penalties. These teams will join the already qualified teams making the total number of countries 24.
Group A consists of Turkey, Italy, Wales and Switzerland; a group that many are unsure about as all 4 teams are of similar calibre, however, I am sure many would choose Italy as the favourites to top the group due to their quality of players. Switzerland have a knack for beating team high up the world rankings due to their battling nature and so will probably the 2nd favourites. This does not mean you should write of Wales because if you think back to the last rendition of the Euro’s, Wales made it to the Semi-Finals of the competition against the odds and it wouldn’t surprise many if the same happened.
Group B is kind to Belgium as they have Russia, Denmark, and Finland alongside themselves. It would not come to anyone’s surprise that I am going to predict Belgium to ease through this stage of the competition but the 2nd qualifying spot could go down to either of the other 3 teams.
Group C is similar to group B as it contains a powerhouse of a nation, being the Netherlands, with 3 other teams who will battle out for the 2nd spot. North Macedonia will be a longshot as they do not anywhere near enough quality to threaten Ukraine and Austria, but if I had to guess between the two, I would predict Ukraine to finish ahead.
Group D contains England and Croatia, two teams who met in the Semi-Finals of the previous World Cup, although, with age, Croatia have dropped off in quality in the last 2 years. The other two sides are Scotland and Czech Republic, with many not expecting either of these sides to progress, especially Scotland who had a pretty miserable qualifying campaign, despite reaching the finals.
Group E consists of Spain, Poland, Sweden, and Slovakia. Spain’s golden decade has finished and are looking as poor as they have been in a while, resulting in many disappointing performances. I do believe they will progress; however, it will be tight, and I do not expect them to go much further than this.
The final group is F, also known as the group of death, containing Germany, Portugal, France, and poor Hungary. Anyone one of Germany, Portugal and World Cup winners France could make it through and unfortunately for Hungary, I don’t think they stand a chance.
In my opinion, the Euro’s could be won by one of these teams. France are probably the favourites, after winning the World Cup in there golden generation, England have one of the brightest squads as it is full of flair and excitement and the final team I think could do so is Germany.
