I can see us getting through to Semi Final stage again but not sure we have enough quality to win it.

However form could go out of the window if the flippin Covid has an affect. There are already two teams that have players isolating and I suspect they wont be the last which could throw up some interesting results across the whole competition if key players miss matches.

I would think that Belgium will be the favourites given that they are numero uno in the FIFA rankings. However IMO, I think this tournament is probably the least predictable we have had for some years. In the past, I have been guilty in getting carried away with the hype & predicting England to win it, given the players we have had at our disposal.

Southgate deserves a lot of credit with picking his squad, in the past, if you’re not playing for the top 6 or 7 teams, you wouldn’t get a sniff of getting in the England squad, Southgate has definitely changed that one. There is always a surprise & I wouldn’t write off our chances.

France 🇫🇷 or Belgium 🇧🇪 for me.

If we win our group we will have a tough game in the last 16.

I think ultimately our defence will be our undoing, QF at best for me.

Is there much of a buzz about it over there?

Fairly low key here. Yes every other advert is connected to the tournament, but I put that down to business trying any angle to get going.

But within the general public there is very little enthusiasm, normally by now we are seeing whole towns decked in orange. Even read that there were still tickets available for game in Amsterdam.

It maybe the pandemic, maybe the general sense of being underwhelmed by de Boer, maybe the fact that, during the tournament, tv's are not allowed in bars and restaurants so it will be another series of games sat at home with a few friends, crate of beer and the small screen (and how we are all bored of that). Possibly all these things, but it sure is quiet.

Oh and Kevin, whilst it is not exactly 'going out on a limb', like you I will be surprised if the captain of the winning team is not a French speaker.

There is some excitement over here but obviously quite hard to gauge. I think we’ll see a few pub gardens full over the next few days.

Apparently tickets are sporadically going on and off sale for the England matches if anyone is interested.

France are clear favourites but Italy are looking good.
