From June 14, the focus of football fans turns to international football. That’s when Euro 2024 gets underway in Germany. A whole month of exciting football lies ahead of us. Just who do bookmakers believe will win the final on July 14?

Maybe this time?

It was back in 1966 that England won the World Cup and the years of hurt keep piling up. Maybe 2024 will be the year when they finally win another major tournament. England are 4/1 at bet365 to win the European title for the first time but will they?

England lost the last final to Italy in a penalty shootout. They seem to possess a stronger squad now and have no major injury concerns There are still worries over their defending though. Top players such as Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham are used to playing in Germany. Kane has been scoring for fun for Bayern Munich and is 13/2 at William Hill to be the top scorer at Euro 2024.

England play in Group C against Denmark (who they beat in the semi-finals in 2021), Slovenia and Serbia. It’s 2/7 at BetVictor they top Group C and should so so. 

Gareth Southgate’s squad is packed with game-changing players. England are 11/8 at bet365 to reach a second successive European final.

France Overdue a European title

France haven’t won the European crown since 2000 but made it to the final in 2016. In Group D, they play Austria, the Netherlands and Poland so should comfortably qualify for the knockout stages. They are the 7/2 favourites at William Hill to win Euro 2024 and 13/8 to be finalists.

Kylian Mbappe is again in good scoring form for club and country. BetVictor has him at odds of 5/1 to be the top scorer in Euro 2024.

Germany are the hosts and have an excellent record in the European championships. They regularly make it to at least the last four and have won the title three times. Their last win was in 2016 but can they win on home soil?

Their form has been inconsistent and the pressure will be on them as host nation. There have been recent wins over both France and the Netherlands, so if showing that form they’d be contenders. Bet365 offers odds of 11/2 on them winning Euro 2024.

Portugal should also be considered as potential winners. Cristiano Ronaldo is still in good scoring form.  It’s almost inevitable that this will be his last European championship tournament. He’s available at 12/1 at William Hill to be the top goal scorer.

The Portuguese are not a one-man squad though. Players such as Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota, João Félix, Bernardo Silva and Ruben Neves are all match winners in their own right. The 2016 champions are 8/1 at BetVictor to again become European champions. 

Italy are the defending champions but English fans will be quick to mention that they beat the Italians twice in the qualifying rounds. The loss at Wembley this year was a rare defeat for the Italians. Retaining the European title is not an easy task though. Only Spain have won back-to-back titles. 

They are 16/1 at William Hill to win the title and will need to be in form early on in the tournament. That’s because they are in the same group as Spain and Croatia with Albania making up the quartet.

Spain won’t be an easy side to play in Germany. Even more so if Rodri can repeat the form he’s shown for Manchester City this season. They will again rely on Alvaro Morata and Ferran Torres for goals. Although nowhere near the squad that won two successive European titles, they are the reigning Nations League champions and are 9/1 to win another European title.

It’s going to be a fascinating tournament in June. England has the squad to become European champions for the first time but must get out of the habit of always seemingly finding some way not to win a title.
