  • Championship Records: Germany and Spain are the big kahunas here, each boasting three Euro titles. Italy and France are hot on their heels with two championships each.
  • Italy’s Triumph: Flashback to the 2020 final? Italy edged out England in a nail-biting 3-2 penalty shootout after a tense 1-1 draw. The pandemic pushed the tournament to 2021, but it was worth the wait.
  • Historical Performances: Italy’s Gianluigi Donnarumma broke the mold in 2020, becoming the first goalkeeper to snag the Player of the Tournament award. Quite the feather in his cap!
  • Top Scorer: Who else but Cristiano Ronaldo? The Portuguese legend topped the scoring charts in 2020 with five goals and an assist, proving he’s still got it.
  • Germany’s Consistency: No team has shown up as often as Germany. This year marks their 14th appearance in the UEFA European Championship. Talk about reliability!
  • France’s Longevity: France is making their 11th appearance, with a streak of nine consecutive tournaments. Only Germany beats that record.
  • Spain’s Legacy: Spain’s got bragging rights too. They’ve participated in 12 Euros and are the only nation to win back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2012. Impressive, right?
  • Portugal’s Streak: Portugal is set for their ninth Euros, keeping a steady streak since 1996. Eight in a row is nothing to scoff at.
  • England’s Quest: England’s back for their 11th shot at the title. Despite playing the most games (38) without winning, their spirit remains unbroken.
  • Netherlands’ Glory Days: The Dutch are making their 11th appearance, still reminiscing about their 1988 victory against the USSR. Glory days indeed!
  • Belgium’s Progress: Belgium is gearing up for its seventh European Championship. It’s the first time they’ve nailed three consecutive qualifications. Nice job!
  • Denmark’s Surprise: Denmark is on its 10th run and is remembered fondly for its 1992 win after Yugoslavia’s sudden disqualification. Sometimes, the stars align just right.
  • Croatia’s Challenge: Croatia is in their seventh Euros and sixth straight. They’ve reached the knockout phase four times but have never cracked the quarterfinals. Maybe this year?
  • Czechia’s Persistence: Czechia, including its days as Czechoslovakia, is marking its 11th appearance. They’ve qualified eight times in a row since 1996. Only Germany and France have longer current runs.
  • Italy’s Presence: Italy is making its 11th appearance. With two titles under its belt, it is chasing Germany and Spain in the championship tally.
  • Serbia’s Debut: Serbia is competing in the Euros as an independent nation for the first time. Previously, it competed as Yugoslavia, finishing second twice. A fresh start, fresh hopes!
  • Switzerland’s Streak: Switzerland is on their sixth Euro outing, making it three in a row. They’ve qualified for six consecutive major tournaments, a solid feat over two decades. Keep an eye on them!

 

Stars to Watch at Euro 2024

Who’s gearing up to claim Player of the Tournament honors at Euro 2024?

England, still smarting from their Euro 2020 final defeat, is eyeing redemption with Jude Bellingham spearheading the charge. The 20-year-old sensation will be supported by the likes of Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, and Bukayo Saka, making the Three Lions a formidable force.

Cristiano Ronaldo, despite a less-than-stellar 2022 World Cup, will once again be the focal point for Portugal. Veterans over 35 expected to shine include Croatia’s Luka Modrić, Germany’s Manuel Neuer, and the evergreen Giroud.

Kylian Mbappe will lead a formidable French team, aiming to bounce back from their heart-wrenching loss in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final. France boasts a star-studded lineup, especially in attack, featuring Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembele, and Randal Kolo Muani.

Don’t overlook the Premier League heavyweights like Kevin De Bruyne and Virgil van Dijk, who will add their flair to the tournament.
