Who are the favorites to win?
France have been placed as the favorites for Euro 2020 followed by England, Germany and Belgium.
Didier Deschamps’ team begin as the world champions and will be looking to go one better from runners up position at this championship which they hosted in 2016.
A team loaded with world-class players like Kylian Mbappe, N’Golo Kante, Griezman, Pogba have been further strengthened by inclusion of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema who got a surprising call up after six years of international exile.
France is considered at odds of around 5-1 to win the tournament although they are placed in the “Group of Death” alongside reigning champions Portugal and the ever-dangerous Germany.
England are the second favorite for the tournament which means the bookies rate them as potential finalists.
With one of the youngest teams at Euro, along with more experience from their world cup run, Gareth Southgate’s men will be hoping to win an international tournament for the first time since 1996.
