England head into Euro 2020 as the favourites, just like they did prior to last summer's postponement of the tournament, as they sit at 5/1 alongside world champions France.
Gareth Southgate's men have produced a brilliant rise under his leadership, having gone from being knocked out of Euro 2016 at the round of 16 stage to Iceland in stunning fashion, to semi-finalists at the World Cup two years later. In the process, the then young stars like Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane have become the senior heads of the team and turned into some of Europe's very best, whilst the latest wave of youth talent like Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden have quickly become some of the most sought after youngsters around.
However, despite possessing some of the best talent in world football and arguably the most promising squad for the future across the continent, England fans are still not satisfied. In fact, a telling 7% of England followers believe they will go all the way at Euro 2020, despite being the joint-favourites for the entire tournament itself, whilst only 25% believe they will progress further than the quarter-finals and match their semi-final result from three years ago.
England should, however, progress from their group relatively easy, as they, without question, have the easiest group from the nations expected to get to the latter stages. The Three Lions will compete with Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland in Group D, and they sit at 4/11 to win the group and an incredibly low 1/50 to qualify.
Advancing should be simple, but given how the winner of England's Group D faces the runner up of Group F, which is either Portugal, Germany, France or Hungary, Southgate's men have to beat arguably the best nation at the tournament immediately following their progression from the groups.
If England finish as runners-up in Group D, ironically, their life seems significantly easier, similar to how was the case at the 2018 World Cup. The Three Lions will meet the runners-up of Group E if this is the case, which could be either Spain, Poland, Sweden or Slovakia. Whilst Spain is a task too, the Spanish don't quite uphold the fear of France of Portugal right now.
So, with only 25% of people thinking England can get past this point do have a case, because if they can win their group, things get quite worrying in the round of 16.
