Fans all over the world come together again for the EURO 2024. Anticipation is high for the opening this June as the teams continue to prepare and gear up for the tournament. This year, Germany hosts the EURO 2024.

Last year, the groups have been decided and announced which boosted the excitement for the tournament. Here’s a look at this year’s EURO Groups:

  • Group A: Germany, Scotland, Hungary, Switzerland
  • Group B: Spain, Croatia, Italy, Albania
  • Group C: Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, England
  • Group D: Netherlands, Austria, Play-off winner A, France
  • Group E: Belgium, Slovakia, Romania, Play-off winner B
  • Group F: Türkiye, Portugal, Czechia, Play-off winner C

EURO 2024 Group C

The group consists of Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, England. Many people argue that the roster is highly favorable to the stronger team, England. And as usual, England in EURO 2024 is a huge favorite among fans.

England enters Euro 2024 as one of the favorites and carries high expectations to improve upon their previous tournament performance. After reaching the final of Euro 2020, the team gained valuable experience and demonstrated their potential on the international stage. With a talented squad boasting a blend of established stars and emerging talents, England possesses a formidable attacking force and a solid defensive unit. With a hunger for success and a desire to go one step further, fans and pundits alike anticipate England to perform at their best and contend for the championship.

Additionally, England competes with slightly disadvantaged teams in Group C. They enter Group C of Euro 2024 as the strongest team and clear favorites among their rivals, Slovenia, Denmark, and Serbia. With a talented and well-rounded squad, England possesses the necessary firepower and depth to dominate the group. Their attacking prowess, defensive solidity, and midfield creativity make them a formidable force. Led by experienced and skilled players, England boasts a mix of established stars and rising talents. While Slovenia, Denmark, and Serbia are competitive teams, England’s quality and recent tournament success position them as the team to beat in Group C. Expectations are high for England to secure a commanding position in the group and advance to the knockout stages with confidence.

Despite that, strategy and adaptability play a significant role in their quest for the championship. They would have to devise effective game plans, and make tactical adjustments as needed. The ability to adapt to changing circumstances and make quick decisions can be decisive in crucial moments as they move forward to tougher matches.

The home court advantage and automatic bidding of EURO 2024 host Germany should help it at least perform superbly throughout the tournament of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) league, if not become EURO champions altogether.

However, it’s not that simple. Sure, they won’t be fighting against the qualifying national teams from all over Europe in any Away games (they’re all in 10 venues within Germany). However, they haven’t won the EUROs since 1996.

Which Countries Have The Most EURO Championships Though?

• Germany and Spain are the Winningest Teams: In the history of the EURO tournament by UEFA, the most “winningest” national teams are Spain and Germany. They’re among the most successful EURO champions in EURO history, with them winning it three times a piece. If Germany wins EURO 2024, they’ll have one EURO win over Spain.

• France and Italy as well as Everyone Else: As for the second most successful EURO champions, that’s both Italy and France. They each have two EURO wins. There are then six other national teams that have won the EUROs once—Portugal, Greece, Denmark, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, and the Soviet Union.

• The Uncrowned Kings of the EUROs: The biggest almost-wins of EURO history include England, Belgium, and Yugoslavia. The three countries and their national teams have qualified for the final but stopped short of winning against EURO champions. In basketball terms, they’re the Utah Jazz of the EUROs back in the Nineties.

• Will Germany Triumph with 4 EUROs? The former EURO champions and 2014 World Cup winners have an undoubtedly solid team—arguably the best in the world—but in UEFA European Championship terms, they’ve had a championship drought since 1996 despite tying with Spain as the winningest champions in UEFA history.

• What about The Other Potential Winners? Among the most promising teams are France as headed by Kylian Mbappe. France has two wins and is tied with Italy. If it wins the EURO 2024, it then raises itself on the level of Spain and Germany. England is also gunning to get its first EURO win since forever as an uncrowned king.

• Portugal’s Legendary Ace: The sport legend Cristiano Ronaldo is gunning for giving his home country Portugal glory by helping them win a second EURO and putting them on the same pedestal as France and Italy. This is an important tournament for Ronaldo as well, because it might be his last set of international matches.

Germany, including when it was known as West Germany, has won three EURO championships, which is equal to what Spain has won. As hosts of EURO 2024, the tournament is their best bet at becoming the country with the most EURO championships instead of sharing a tie of championships with their fiercest rival Spain.
