Euro 2020 | Group B

We reviewed Group A a few days ago and now it’s time for group B for the upcoming Euro 2020.

Group B: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Russia

Belgium

Currently sitting at number 1 spot in the FIFA World ranking, Belgium is a team filled with so much quality that it is impossible not to be with all the talent into the starting 11; with players from Real Madrid, Manchester City, Leicester, Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund. The team features superstars like Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Azar, Thibaut Courtois, and many more. Led by Roberto Martinez, with Thierry Henry as his assistant, The #RedDevils will be hungry for glory. They won the bronze medal 3 years ago and are definitely one of the favorites in the tournament. They should easily win the group and advance further.

Denmark

The #DanishDynamite have always been a team to comply with – a hard-to-beat team as Croatia witnessed in Russia three years ago. They’re a well-organized mix of experienced players and young talent. Players like Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, the newly crowned #ChampionsLeague winner, Andreas Christensen, and Barcelona’s Martin Braithwaite are just a few of the names that manager Kasper Hjulmand will rely on. Cristian Eriksen is a player who can make a dangerous situation out of nothing. Denmark are used to shocking Europe, they did it in 1992 when called from the beaches, they won the European championship. The #Danes will probably battle over the 2nd spot in the group with Russia.

Finland

The #EagleOwls will make their debut at the Euros this summer. Not known for their football, they have never played in the Euros or the World Cup. But this can only motivate them to do well in their debut. The team is made up of relatively unknown players with their biggest star being Teemo Puki. The Norwich striker got a name for himself in the last few seasons in both Premier League and Championship. The #Finns are a physically strong team, they love using set pieces to put pressure on the opposition team and are definitely the underdog in the group and will be a big shock if they progress.

Russia

Russia is definitely a team on the rise. After they hosted the World Cup in 2018, their team is doing better and better. Let’s not forget, they beat Spain in the quarters of that World Cup. Most of the players are part of the local #PremierLiga. They are spread among the grands there among Lokomotiv, Zenit, Spartak, Dinamo, and CSKA. Players know each other very well and they’re a very experienced team. Led by Stanislav Cherchesov, Russia won’t give up easy and will be a threat to every opponent. As I already said, they will probably fight Denmark for the 2nd spot in the group.
