Group D Euro 2020 odds
Who will win the Euro 2020 Group D?
Group D: Qualifies for Round of 16
Euro 2020: Group D
England almost went unbeaten during their Group A qualifying campaign, winning 7 and losing just the one. The one game they lost was a surprising one against the Czech Republic which became England’s 1st defeat in 43 Euro and World Cup qualifying games. Manager Gareth Southgate took England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup where they lost in extra time 2-1 to a Mario Mandzukic goal that sank hearts across Britain. Key player and Captain Harry Kane won the golden boot at that same world cup. He is a tall, powerful striker who not only needs one chance to score (scored 12 goals in the qualifiers) but he has now developed him game as a brilliant assister, capable of insane through balls. Another player to keep an eye on is Aston Villa winger/playmaker Jack Grealish who has been one of the best players so far in the Premier League this season and after making his England debut just a few months ago, he is arguably the 1st name on the team sheet. It was a disappointing display last time England were in the Euro’s back in 2016 as they failed to progress into the quarter finals after losing 2-1 to Iceland.
After 8 qualifying games, Croatia won 5, drew 2 and lost 1 with a goal difference of 14. Bruno Petkovic was their top goal scorer with 4 goals, but their key player is of course Luca Modric. The 2018 Balon d’Or winner is one of the greatest midfielders of this current generation; silky on the ball, great stamina and agility, insane vision and range of passing and on his day he can smash shots in from 30 yards+. Another midfielder in their ranks is Ivan Rakitic who, whilst be ageing, is flying high as a defensive midfielder for Sevilla and has been a 1st name on the team sheet ever since his debut. They lost 1-0 to eventual winners of the competition back in 2016, Portugal, in the round of 16.
A very shaky qualifying campaign somehow saw Scotland beat Serbia on penalties to book a spot in Euro 2020. In the group, they won 5 and lost 5, finishing on a goal difference of -3. John McGinn scored almost half of their goals (7) and without the tenacious midfielder, it could have been a very different story. McGinn is known for making late runs into the box and this helped towards his 1st ever Scotland hattrick.
They won 5 of their 8 games, losing 3 and Patrik Schick was their top goalscorer during that campaign. Vladimir Darida made his trade at Hertha Berlin as top, top midfielder. He has a fantastic ability to break the lines with defence splitting passes. In Euro 2016, they were unable to reach the knockout rounds after not finishing in the top 2.
