My predictions for Euro 2016:
Winners: I predict France will win the tournament. They have a very strong midfield and options upfront and if Payet plays, a very big threat from dead ball situations. There might be a couple of questions over an ageing defence and defending set-pieces, but Lloris is an excellent keeper to be able to call upon. They have gone a while without competitive football, but have what appears to be a relatively easy group to ease them back in to competitive games.
England: I predict England will reach the quarter-finals. They should be strong enough to qualify from the group and qualifying top of the group should give a favourable draw for the last 16. England’s biggest concern is the defence and I think this will be their downfall against good opponents.
Dark horses: I think the tournament dark horses are Poland. They have one of the most dangerous strikers in Lewandowski and Milik is being tipped to be just as good. A goal threat like that is always going to give a team a chance of winning a game and if it’s an open tournament, two excellent strikers could take them a long way.
Leave me a comment with your predictions for the three categories I’ve predicted.
