Build Up to the Euros

Posted on May 26, 2016 by in fans

The Euros start on June 10th and England are already playing their warm up friendly games ahead of their matches with Russia, Wales and Slovakia. With a 2-1 win last weekend against Turkey, England followed that up with another 2-1 win over Australia with debutant, Marcus Rashford, scoring on his debut at the tender age of 18.

England manager, Roy Hodgson, has until Tuesday May 31st to name his squad and still has some important decisions to make over squad selection. One of those decisions is whether to include Rashford in the squad after his meteoric rise at his club, Manchester United, this year.

The favourites for the tournament are current World Champions, Germany, closely followed by hosts, France. Although many people think England’s young team are a good outside bet. However, most commentators agree that Russia 2018 may be a better bet for Hodgson’s young England side.

The action kicks off early next month and fans are expecting a festival of football at what will be the largest Euros to date with the addition of 8 extra teams in the new format. We look forward to some great football, lots of goals and success for our England team. Good luck to Roy and the boys!
