France, Portugal, Italy, England, and Belgium are intimating competitors, that undoubtedly have been gathering talents in recent years.

Portugal, led by Cristiano Ronaldo would be France’s biggest rival, without a doubt, the world still remembers C Ronaldo’s saving the game on the critical moments at Russia World Cup. However, it was pity that C Ronaldo and the Portugal team finally stopped at elimination round and lost to Uruguay in 1 to 2, led by Suárez and Cavaney. This time, with Liverpool striker Diogo Jota and Atletico Madrid’s Joao Flix, who can win the Spanish league title, Portugal initiated a formidable front line for defending the European championship. For the middle-fielders, Portugal has assigned Bruno Fernandes and Bernando Silva, which are called “the Great Asset” of Manchester United for their big success in the Premier League. Joao Cancelo and Ruben Dias play as the core of Portugal’s defenders’ position, who also play for Manchester United have returned home and aimed to help Portugal earn its place in the Euro 2020.
England also has the most selected team; Gareth Southgate is spoilt for choices when it comes to team selection. The tactician will have the likes of Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden to choose from. The expectations are high from the Three Lions on this occasion.
Italy should also be considered as a strong opponent. They have a nice blend of experience and youth in its ranks, as well as Belgium Who finished third at the 2018 World Cup with star players such as Romelu who helped Inter Milan win the Serie A.
However, compared to the above ambitious teams, Germany revealed squad shows uncertainty.
For the dark horse that will stage upset in this time’s Euro 2020, Dream Island, would take odds on Turkey and Czech. With full-strength team, Turkey made a notably performance in recent tournaments and showed they are in the position to be treated seriously, while Czech is betting their best Patrik Schick and the rising star Vladimir Coufal to impress the world.
