France, world champion, top favorite for UEFA European Cup: After winning the 2018 World Cup, will France also win the next European Championship? There are no factors against the Tricolor team.


There were no significant resignations from the French national team after the World Cup final. On the other hand, many young players such as Kylian Mbappé or Benjamin Pavard promise even greater development potential at UEFA European Cup.
 

World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps has also remained in charge. He once again made Les Bleus a footballing powerhouse. However, the question arises whether he is so good that nothing has changed in France.
UEFA EUROPEAN CUP


After winning the title in Brazil in 2014, Germany followed a similar path and paid a bitter price for it. So, the world champion cannot rest on its laurels in the UEFA European Cup final.
 

  1. Germany: the fallen champion is still the favorite: Germany experienced a disaster of historic proportions at the 2018 World Cup. The German national team has never failed in the preliminary round of a World Cup and then as last in the group. In addition, there was a gigantic scandal over Mesut Özil's resignation in a Germany jersey.
  2.  
  3. People did not let their heads roll after the debacle. National coach Joachim Löw was allowed to stay on after the disappointment and can also qualify for the European Championships 2024 in Germany.
  4.  
  5. Definitely, the German Football Federation expects a challenging reaction. The team must prove that it can do better than in Russia. It remains to be seen whether this calculation works. As a real tournament team, the team is once again one of the big favorites at the UEFA European Cup.
  6.  
  7. Incidentally, UEFA European Cup will also be played in Germany. The Allianz Arena in Munich will host three matches in Group F, along with a quarter final.
  8.  
  9. Spain is off to a new start: Spain is still a favorite for UEFA European Cup. Spain has the glory years, when they won the Euro title in 2008 and 2012 and the World Cup title in 2010, behind them. The Iberians only made it to the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup. There was also a lot of turmoil around the team, tangible, for example, when there was a change of coach 48 hours before the start of the tournament.
  10.  
  11. Julen Lopetegui was sacked as head coach because he joined Real Madrid after the World Cup. Fernando Hierro then took charge of the Spaniards at the tournament on an interim basis. After the 2018 final, experienced players in the Spain jersey such as Andrés Iniesta and Gerard Piqué retired from the national team.
  12.  
  13. Luis Enrique took over the team as coach and now has to build a new team. He then resigned as coach in June 2019 for personal reasons, but qualification for UEFA European Cup 2024 is quite possible.
  14.  
  15. With players like David de Gea, Sergio Ramos, Thiago, Koke, Sergio Busquets or Alvaro Morata, Spain's squad still has so much quality that La Furia Roja is one of the favorites. Just like Germany, Spain can boast a UEFA European Cup 2024 venue. They could play three Group E matches and a round of sixteen of the European Championship at the Olympic Stadium.
  16.  
  17. Belgium: another favorite for the UEFA European Cup: The golden generation of the Belgians has long been highly praised, at the 2018 World Cup, the Red Devils could finally live up to this period.
  18.  
  19. Belgium had France on the brink of defeat in the World Cup semifinals, but it was not enough. In the end they finished third, which remains one of the greatest success stories of Belgian soccer.
  20.  
  21. During the World Cup the team's "swan song" was strong. It was said that the golden generation of the Belgians was advancing in years. It is questionable whether Belgium could again play as good a role as in Russia.
  22.  
  23. The players in the Belgium jersey and accompanied by superstars like Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Axel Witsel and Kevin de Bruyne want to taste victory again. The successful coach Roberto Martinez is still in office and should continue the successful path from 2016. Will Belgium's golden generation finally make the big hit at the European Championships in 2024?
  24.  
  25. England is from secret World Cup favorite to European Championship favorite: In the 2018 World Cup final, English soccer proved with fourth place that it is finally back on top of the world. Coach Gareth Southgate has achieved what was considered impossible for years. He made a superior team out of the Three Lions.
  26.  
  27. The team has great development potential, most of the players who competed in Russia and UEFA European Cup 2024 qualification are still incredibly young. Especially Harry Kane, who secured the crown of top scorer at the World Cup in Russia with 6 goals, should secure the necessary goals at UEFA European Cup 2024.
  28.  
  29. Also, in the final, the Englishman is one of the favorite top scorers of the championship. Several observers said before the tournament that the World Cup was too early for the big success.
  30.  
  31. With fourth place, however, the English proved that they must be among the top favorites for UEFA European Cup. After all, England's UEFA European Cup 2024 squad is getting ready with numerous established players.
  32.  
  33. The English will be particularly motivated by the fact that both the UEFA European Cup 2024 semi-finals and the final will take place at the 2024 European Championship venue.
  34.  
  35. Netherlands as an insider: The Netherlands is entering the race as our number one secret favorite. Although the Dutch have failed to qualify for a major soccer tournament since the 2014 World Cup, you can expect the 2010 World Cup vice-champion at UEFA European Cup 2024.
  36.  
  37. Already in the Nations League, the Netherlands proved by winning the group and entering the final quarterfinals of the that they could become a surprise team at EURO 2024.
  38.  
  39. Numerous young and talented players can be found in the "Orange" team, which is led by center-back and captain Virgil van Dijk. Other outstanding players in the Netherlands squad are Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong or Memphis Depay, who for us is even one of the favorites for best player of UEF
  40. A European Cup.
  41.  
  42. Matthijs de Ligt at UEFA European Cup: Italy finds itself in a similar situation to the Netherlands. The Squadra Azzurra missed out on qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, but the Italians are greatly confident about EURO 2024 due to the qualification for the European Championship Italy convinced with 10 wins in 10 games and 37 goals scored.
  43.  
  44. However, Finland, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Armenia and Liechtenstein were not the strongest opponents. After the resignation of goalkeeping legend Gianluigi Buffon, young Gianluigi Donnarumma is defending the goal for the Italians and is also one of the favorites when it comes to the question of the best goalkeeper for Euro 2024 .
  45.  
  46. Other young players like Marco Verratti, Federico Chiesa, Nicolo Barella or Daniele Rugani should make the fans of the Italian national team happy again and take them as far as possible in this championship.
  47.  
  48. In defense, experienced Juve players Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini in the Italy jersey also guarantee reliable support. Although the Italian national team was not represented at the World Cup in Russia, Italy is one of the big favorites in the UEFA European Cup final, as in all tournaments.
  49.  
  50. Portugal with a chance: As the third team of the secret favorites for UEFA European Cup, we have decided on the reigning European champions Portugal and not the world runners-up Croatia. Why? After the World Cup final, some important pillars of the Croatian national team announced their resignation (including Mandzukic and Subasic).
  51.  
  52. Achieving similar success again at the EURO will probably not be possible for the World Cup runner-up. Reigning European champions Portugal, on the other hand, can count on one of the best players in the universe in Cristiano Ronaldo, who, despite his age, could make a difference again at the next UEFA European Cup.
  53.  
  54. Other strong players in Portugal's squad for the championship such as Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Neves, Andre Silva or Raphael Guerreiro are in their prime as footballers. With Portugal as the secret favorite, it is to be expected.
