Euros Outright Predictions!

With the Euros now just 3 days away, behind the scenes here at Superbru a few of us have been discussing some outright tournament predictions before the real picks begin in our score predictor game.

So, as we often do just for a bit of fun before major tournaments, here’s a run-through of our outright predictions for the Euros as a whole and we’d love for you to add your own in the comments section again!

We’re after your expected winner, the team you hope wins, your top scorer, your dark horse (a team that will surprise a few this summer), and the team you think will fall short of expectations at the tournament (flop).

Don’t forget, Euro 2020 begins this Friday when Turkey take on Italy in Rome. In case you need it, here's a reminder of the groups:



Euros Outright Predictions

Jack

1. Predicted winner: France
2. Team I hope wins: England
3. Top scorer: Romelu Lukaku (very interested to see how Benzema goes though!)
4. Dark horse: Italy. Group A in general will be interesting though as I think one of Turkey or Switzerland could also surprise a few.
5. Flop: Belgium. It obviously depends who they face once they make it through their (fairly kind) group but I’m not as convinced as others seem to be about them.

Hutch

1. Predicted winner: France - on paper, their squad is head and shoulders above the rest
2. Team I hope wins: England
3. Top scorer: Kylian Mbappe
4. Dark horse: Germany - people seem to be writing them off
5. Flop: England - the expectations seem a bit too high, which only ends one way in my experience!

Charel

1. Predicted winner: France
2. Team I hope wins: Austria
3. Top scorer: Kylian Mbappe
4. Dark horse: Croatia
5. Flop: Portugal

Rich

1. Predicted winner: France
2. Team I hope wins: Pipe dream: Scotland, Vaguely realistic: England
3. Top scorer: Harry Kane
4. Dark horse: Tricky... Are Germany or England too highly ranked to be dark horses? If so, Scotland!
5. Flop: Belgium

Mike

1. Predicted winner: Belgium
2. Team I hope wins: Belgium
3. Top scorer: Kylian Mbappe
4. Dark horse: Spain
5. Flop: Portugal

The General

1. Predicted winner: Belgium
2. Team I hope wins: England
3. Top scorer: Harry Kane
4. Dark horse: Germany
5. Flop: France

1. Predicted winner: France to beat England in Wembley Final
2. Team I hope wins: England - they could face Germany if Germans only come 3rd in their tough group and then beat famously unstable Netherlands. . Based on my shaky projections.
3. Top scorer: Harry Kane - 'Point of the Spear' far more than most teams. 6 goals should do it.
4. Dark horse: Turkey (Historic ex-Winners like Spain, Germany or Italy technically can't be Dark Horses).
5. Flop: Belgium - That defence creaks! Hazard hasn't been fit all season. Lukaku is their only hope, so just man-mark him. Oh and De Bruyne & Mertens & Trossard & Tielemans & Carrasco. Actually I've changed my mind. BELGIUM TO WIN. Netherlands to flop due to split dressing room as usual or is that France?

Historically the Euros are harder to win than the World Cups, as there are less easy games. There have been far more different winners of the Euros than the World Cup which has been held far more often.

Jersey pud puller are you still sore around the nether regions, put some ice on it and stay out of the Nederlands coffee shops and you will not meet Goose and be goosed. The next trip for you is Czechia, don"t talk about it when you get back to Earls Court. LOL! 9 Jun 12:30
21,601 caps
John, why do you keep replying to the wrong Bru's posts? Czechia?? I assume you mean Czech Republic been there 3 times too! Great country. Earl's Court priced out Kiwis & Aussies 30 years ago btw - try Act(i)on Town or Shepherds Bush these days. Lets stick to writing about the Euros shall we? 9 Jun 13:11
19,044 caps
Ah, Shepherds Bush! That brings back my fondest memories. Back in the day, I was a goat-herder, and my girlfriend was a lovely shepherd from the land of the long white cloud. She would always invite me down to Shepherds Bush. It was supposed to be her treat, but she was just pulling the wool over my eyes. 9 Jun 13:28

Yeah topgun, my 'prediction' that Scotland will be champions, is tongue-in-cheek! However, they might get a couple of points in the group stage. Black Beauty will, in all probability, also be an 'also-ran'. 11 Jun 03:07
