nah England doesn't have the mentality to win it. talented young squad but will choke in the big moment and lose on pens again. Germany, France, Portugal all strong squads and for outsiders I quite like Belgium who are as close to a complete team as any in every position.
I would say Holland as well but being without VVD who is a leader and best centre back in the world will affect their defence and upfront they don't have a target man like they used to. using a winger come forward to play that position like Babel(useless player) or Depay doesn't help.
Belgium is promising too, but they choked too in 2016 and 2018, when they actually were favourites (yes, even with France in semis).
Pardon me, but VVD is now the 2nd best CB, first one is obviously Coates
1996? No magic with the numbers back then
Speaking of Portugal, I think the squad is much better than the one in 2016 with R. Dias, J. Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, A. Silva, J. Felix, D. Jota, etc. + CR7 still being a monster. Looks too evident for a winner. I expect a surprise
2016 is probably the worst portuguese squad when comparing all Euro squads, even with CR7... 96 and 2000 had massive talent like Figo, Ronaldo, Baía, Couto, Sousa, then 2004 till 2012 again amazing talent that brought previous generation with new one... 2016 almost no one here thought that we would win anything and yet, there you go.
This time we have, without a doubt, the best generation. Before Portugal started to be regular in Euros and WCs, most would cheer for Brazil (for obvious reasons) and we used to say that Brazil could make like seven top teams with all the talent they have, but now I can proudly say Portugal, with just 10 million, can make at least three competitive teams, including our youth squads with many already playing at top level... However, the synergy now is not the same as 2016, and considering we're in the group of death, Portugal has to play much better.
