EURO 2024: England will rely on Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane


France are the favorites to win EURO 2024.  Why? They have one of the best international teams, boasting a perfect blend of youth and experience. 

A golden generation of players, strong competition across the team, continuity in an experienced coach who has been at the helm since 2012 and perhaps most importantly, they can call on Kylian Mbappe, who is arguably the best footballer in the world.

This group of players will be desperate to put the World Cup final defeat against Argentina behind them and re-announce themselves as the best team in Europe (and the world)

Key players: Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Aurelien Tchouameni


As hosts, the Germans didn’t have to play any qualifiers, a situation that has starved them of the chance to play adequate competitive matches.

 Their games since the 2022 World Cup have all been friendlies, but even those yielded defeats against Poland, Colombia, Japan, Turkey, and Austria.  Germany are probably one of the favourites because they’re hosting the tournament, as their form in the past 12 months (W4, L6, D2) has left fans with little confidence ahead of their opening game against Scotland.  

However, their last two matches have been victories over France and the Netherlands, which has led to renewed optimism that Germany can make a statement at EURO 2024.

They will rely heavily on Toni Kroos; the elegant Real Madrid midfielder’s decision to come out of retirement has coincided with their recent good form and they’ll hope that Kroos, along with Jamal Musiala, Ilkay Gundogan, and Florian Wirtz can give them what they need to win the Euros on home soil.

Key players: Jamal Musiala, Florian Wirtz, Ilkay Gundogan and Toni Kroos.
