What Are England’s Chances?

Despite never having won this tournament, England is still firm favourites in the Euro 2024 odds to bring some silverware home on July 14th, 2024.

England’s history in the UEFA European Championship is a tale of frequent promise but limited success, marked by moments of brilliance, heartbreak, and controversy.

England’s relationship with the Euros began in 1968, when they achieved their best result at that time, finishing in third place.

However, it wasn’t until 1996 that England truly captured the imagination of their fans when they hosted the tournament.

The team reached the semi-finals, a feat accompanied by a wave of national euphoria. Despite a heartbreaking penalty shootout loss to Germany, the tournament is remembered fondly by fans.

Subsequent tournaments have been a mixed bag for England. They have often qualified with relative ease and entered competitions with high expectations, only to fall short in the knockout stages.

Notable disappointments include early exits in 2000 and 2004 and failing to qualify for the 2008 edition altogether.

The 2012 and 2016 tournaments saw England underperform, with the latter ending in a shock defeat to Iceland in the Round of 16 in Nice on June 27th.

However, the tide started to turn under the management of Gareth Southgate. Euro 2020 (held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic) marked a significant breakthrough, with England reaching the final for the first time in their history.

Despite losing to Italy in a penalty shootout, it was the furthest England had ever gotten, and now they have every chance of winning it in 2024.

Players To Look Out For

We are blessed to be in the golden age of English footballing talent with a new generation of players who are excelling on the world stage.

With Jude Bellingham, Marcus Rashford, Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish, and Declan Rice all on form and finding the back of the net, this boost of youthful exuberance could prove pivotal.

Jude Bellingham is currently the top goalscorer in La Liga with 16 goals for Real Madrid.

Ollie Watkins is not only Aston Villa’s top goalscorer this season but also second on the table behind Erling Haaland with 16 goals in the Premier League.

With 13 goals and eight assists for Arsenal, Bukayo Saka is on fire for Arsenal as they edge ever closer in their bid to win the Premier League.

Combined with Gareth Southgate’s ability to instill a new level of tactical flexibility and mental resilience, England can now adapt their game plan to match various opponents.

In the qualifying rounds, they topped Group C, winning six of their eight games and only drawing against Ukraine and North Macedonia.

It put them in a solid position to move forward to join Slovenia, Denmark, and Serbia in Group C. That’s probably why their Euro 2024 odds are so low, given that their upcoming opposition doesn’t look particularly threatening.

Moving Past The Group Stage

The path to the finals won’t be easy, and with so many teams working out, the permutations and combinations can be tricky.

However, barring any major upsets or surprises, this is how England could do it if they top Group C:

  • Round of 16: Sunday June 30th – England vs Austria/Romania/Turkey
  • Quarter-final: Saturday July 6th – England vs Italy (possibly)
  • Semi-final: Wednesday July 10th – France vs England
  • Final: Sunday July 14 – Spain vs England

Of course, many assumptions were made above, including the fact that England would have to beat France, Italy, and Spain to win. And that’s only if their games go as predicted.

The reality, though, is that this kind of tournament never plays out according to world rankings.

After all, both Croatia and Morocco reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2022, and absolutely nobody predicted that!

Despite this, Croatia is a massive 40/1 in the Euro 2024 odds to win the tournament outright. So if there’s a dark horse in this tournament, it could very well be them!
