France

Euro 2020: any of these five teams will win the tournament

France are the most likely squad that might take home the European Championship this year due to the depth of their squad. Recall that France are the reigning FIFA World Cup champions and they might add the Euro 2020 to it on July 11.

In the France squad, every role has at least one or two backups that can hold their own anytime, any day. For instance, the country is so filed with stars that established players like Dayot Upamecano, Alexandre Lacazette, and Ferland Mendy were not able to make the 26-man list for Euro 2020.

Portugal are another deadly team to watch out for in Euro 2020. It is not just because they have Cristiano Ronaldo in their squad but because of the depth and experience, the squad has.

They are currently the reigning champions of the European champions which is an extra pressure on them. The pressure could motivate them to do more to win the tournament for the second successive time.

Almost like France, every department of the Portugal team is blessed with talented options that can cause damage to any team in Euro 2020.

If France fail to win Euro 2020, and Portugal also fail to do so, the next in line could be Belgium. The team that is currently ranked the best team in the world according to FIFA will have one of the best assembly of talents when the competition kick-off.

Aside from Romelu Lukaku who is on fire and Eden Hazard who can be unpredictable, Belgium has options on the bench and on the field that can silence any opposition. A fit Kevin De Bruyne can also make the team invincible.

If the three teams mentioned above fail to do the expected, Spain could be that one team that can set the record straight. The country is known for big moments in football and they would not hesitate to take their chance when it comes.

They are also blessed with squad depth that the head coach of the team, Luis Enrique could not invite the team’s legendary defender Sergio Ramos. However, they are currently battling with the Covid-19 invasion which could go a long way to distract the team ahead of the competition.

5. England

Hence, in the forthcoming Euro 2020, coach Gareth Southgate could take his beautiful assembly of talents beyond the semi-final stage of the competition straight to the final and probably win it.
