England v Italy

Every which way you cut this up it looks to be a final as tight as a Glenn McGrath opening spell at the Gabba.

Both teams have five wins and a draw from the tournament so far (over 90 minutes). Italy has scored 12 and conceded three. England has scored 10 and conceded one. Chop it up in any way and it seems a dead-even game.

There is the home advantage for England which is a big factor of course. But then the crowd can also add to the tension of the home team if Italy scores first (and England doesn’t respond swiftly as they did against Denmark).

There’s also the experience of Italy at the back – Chiellini, and Bonucci has been together in big games on so many occasions including the final in 2012 but then England has more weapons off the bench as the game goes on. Whatever point you bring up for one team to have the edge you can counter it with a point for the other.

It’s likely to be a tight game but that may be with goals (if there’s an early one) or just a 0-0/1-1 affair.

All the analysis leads me to a draw after 90 minutes. That’s the value for me. If I’m picking a team though I’m leaning ever so slightly to Italy be it over the 90 or in extra-time or pens. The experience at the back may prove the difference amid the pressure of a final and just maybe the relief of having finally made a final for the first time in 55 years will take away England’s edge ever so slightly. But of course, the opposite would not surprise one bit.

A draw after 90 minutes. Italy to win.

GROUP A: (Italy, Switzerland, Wales, Turkey)

Italy is the team to watch here in a big way. After missing out on the last World Cup they brought in Roberto Mancini as manager and got their house in order. Qualifying was achieved with a 100% record and they’re serious value money fancy to go all the way.

It’s then a matter of who goes through the group with them and that’s a very even call. Turkey had a slightly easier group in qualifying than the other two but still cruised through and have beaten the Dutch and Norway in meaningful games recently. Switzerland has been very solid too and has an experienced group while Wales did well at the last Euros but has some very patch pre-tournament form. Turkey to go through with Italy for me.

Italy first, Turkey second. The Swiss are the other backable option.


GROUP B: (Belgium, Denmark, Russia, Finland)

Is this finally Belgium’s time? It feels like it’s now or never for this golden group. They’re a serious chance to win it after romping through qualification with a perfect record and going into the tournament as the world’s number one ranked side. The concerns surround Kevin De Bruyne’s recovery from facial surgery and Eden Hazard’s form after a torrid time of it at Real Madrid. In Romelu Lukaku though they have a quality goal scorer in serious form and ready to rip a tournament apart.

They’ll cruise through the group and I like Denmark to go with them who have built nicely after making the last World Cup and are a settled, classy group. Watch out for the Finns though who look like having a bit of Iceland 2016 about them and could shock a few. Russia is always hard to beat but they have an aging group and are likely to lack the required zip and firepower.

Belgium to win the group from Denmark. Fancy Finland to ruffle some feathers though.


GROUP C: (Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, Macedonia)

The Dutch had an excellent qualifying campaign after missing the last World Cup but have since lost their manager who spearheaded the revival in Ronald Koeman to Barcelona and will be without their best player in Virgil Van Dijk after his ACL injury. The group should be fine for them to navigate through but after that, it’s hard to see them having enough quality to challenge for the title.

Macedonia is one of the stories of the tournament, having qualified against the odds but it’s hard to see them moving past the group stage. It’s a tight call then between Ukraine and Austria but I’m leaning towards Andriy Schevchenko’s side. They had an excellent qualifying campaign finishing above Portugal and have a tendency to lift against big teams. They could even top the group.

Ukraine and Netherlands to finish top two in any order. Austria a decent chance to be the highest third placed qualifier.


GROUP D: (England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland)

England is looming as a fascinating proposition. They’ve sorted their in-team culture out recently and have a lot more talent since making the semis at the last World Cup. In Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Jaden Sancho, and others they have quality play-making ability to compliment Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, and Raheem Sterling. The only question mark is whether they have the guile and nous to navigate all the way through a massive tournament and whether Gareth Southgate is the man to help them do that. Nothing in the lead-in games suggests he does.

Croatia is their big challenger coming off their World Cup final in 2018. The Czech’s were monstered by England in qualifying while the Scotland presence will be enjoyable as always but they won’t have the required quality.

England to win the group from Croatia.


GROUP E: (Spain, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia)

It’s so hard to get a read on Spain. The squad is going through an interesting transition under Luis Enrique with no Real Madrid player making it which is hard to fathom. In Thiago, Morata, Rodri, Ferran Torres, and Laporte they still have plenty of quality but have they been through enough as a team to win the Euros? I don’t think so.

Poland and Sweden could spring a surprise and challenge them for group supremacy. Lewandowski is obviously Poland’s main man and they’ve been building as a group nicely for a little while now.  Has Sweden got enough top-level talent to go on a run? It’s hard to see it.

Spain to win the group from Poland but Sweden could sneak through in third.


GROUP F: (France, Germany, Portugal, Hungary)

We’ve left the best until last. The ultimate group of death to surpass every group of death in group of death history. Poor bloody, Hungary. They are absolute cannon fodder here.

France deserves tournament favouritism. The reigning world champions still have the best team on paper and with N’Golo Kante protecting the defense and Kylian Mbappe launching the counter-attacks it’s hard to see anyone stopping them. This tournament could take either of those two players to a Ballon D’or this year.

Portugal is a huge obstacle in the group stages though. They are still the reigning European champions and possess crazy talent in support of Cristiano Ronaldo through Bruno Fernandes, Joao Felix, Diogo Jota, Ruben Dias and others. It’s just a matter of how taxing, navigating through the group will be for them because Germany is in there too.

You can never write off the Germans in major tournaments but they just aren’t tracking like the Germans of old heading into this one. Perhaps Jogi Loew’s farewell will get the best out of them but they’re missing some top-level talent.

France and Portugal to get through – Germany may miss out, incredibly.


Overall Winner

It has to be France. If they’re at their best who can stop them? Belgium and Portugal are my other main contenders and for value look at Italy, the form guide is superb and they seem a united, energetic group.

BACK – France to win Euro 2020 at $6.20 or higher

Golden Boot

He comes into the tournament in great form will be the undoubted spearhead of the attack, will have top-class service, and could cash in in the group stages. Harry Kane is the other big fancy and the same theory applies to him, especially as the penalty taker.

BACK – Romelu Lukaku at $7.80 or higher
