not the first time england has a strong side and still choke. kane needs to deliver since dcl, sterling and rashford have been dry lately. foden and mount will be a duo i'm looking forward to, but they lack experience from international fields. sancho is overrated, but defo a good player. they almost have too many class players it's hard to include them in one starting xi. and ofc they lack centre backs and goalies. mings and stones will most likely be starting due to maguire injury. pickford and henderson both had a weak season and compared to nations like france, belgium and germany their goalies are a joke.
belgium has a really good squad and i doubt portugal would win twice in a row. you missed world class players like tielemans, carrasco and even mertens. it's their defence that's lacking mostly. also kdb will most likely play. eden is a big question mark after a scattered season, but i have faith in him, he was a goat contender after all :) (no chelsea bias)
portugal is the black horse this year, but since cr7 has been pretty useless on portugal shirt lately and cancelo + bernardo had a bad season, i don't see them winning. jota is insane tho.
don't underestimate italy midfield. verratti is a maestro with insane work ethic. insigne and berardi played great this season and with immobile they will be deadly. immobile > moreno, donnarumma > de gea or unai simon 100%.
just wanna say england team is fucking stacked, but my prediction is that they won't go past semis. they got a lot of youngsters with insane potential and success too, but this won't be their year yet (imo).
