Assessing England’s EURO 2020 Chances

For England fans it’s a very exciting build-up to the European championships at present, as there is no doubt that their side is going in with as good a chance of winning than any time in recent history.

England are also heavily fancied within their fanbase, with supporters also backing them using the latest Euro 2020 betting offers. That is a trend that is set to continue moving into the tournament, as belief grows that it could finally be England’s year.

So, can England win Euro 2021? 

If you look at the history of England in the tournament, then you would say no, as they’ve failed to win the competition. Third place has so far been their best finish in both 1969 and 1996.

England have also really failed to hit expectations at the last two European championships, as they dropped out in the quarter-final stages in 2012 and then exited in the round of 16 back in 2016. This was simply not good enough for a side as good as England, so changes needed to be made. 

There’s no doubt that major improvements have been made and we saw this at the World Cup back in 2018, with England progressing through to the semi-finals before being beaten in extra time by Croatia. Even since then, England have gone from strength to strength and this has been shown in their results, that has included a very impressive qualification to the European Championships itself. England are also on an unbeaten run (Source that dates back to the 2-0 away defeat to Belgium in November. This has included a 4-0 home victory over Iceland and a 2-1 home win over Poland. These are all games that they would have been expected to win but they’ve impressed and controlled every game with ease. 

England are now heading into the European Championships in some very strong form as a squad and as individuals, with many of the players coming off the back of some incredible seasons.

We have seen this with the success of English sides in European club competition, with Manchester United the strong favourites for the Europa League title heading into the final and both Manchester City and Chelsea taking each other on for the Champions League title also.

These sides have a number of the leading English stars, who will now be heading into the tournament full of confidence and these major finals will also have given them some much needed experience of the big stage.

So, there is little doubt that England can win the tournament as the team continues to grow in confidence.
