Euro 2024 Teams: A Look into the Top Contenders

5 Mins read
The Euros are back and it is predicted to be an absolute thriller. With Germany, Spain, Belgium, and Italy all fighting for European glory, predicting the winner is no easy challenge. But that’s where we, the football fans, come in, right? So, grab your favourite beverage, settle in, and let’s analyse the participants.

Germany: Can home advantage guide them to Euro 2024 glory?

Host nation Germany are heavy favourites to bring it home. A new generation of young and exciting players, with the likes of Europe’s brightest stars such as Alexander Pavlović, Jamal Musiala, and Florian Wirtz are called up to a squad already stacked with champions. Veterans Antonio Rüdiger, Joshua Kimmich, and Toni Kroos will play a crucial role in helping the juniors settle in while playing in front of the home crowd. Their path to the knockout stages seems straightforward, with group fixtures against Scotland, Switzerland, and Hungary.

Key players: Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Florian Wirtz (Bayer Leverkusen), Nico Schlotterbeck (Borussia Dortmund), Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich)
Manager: Julian Nagelsmann

Spain: Can tiki-taka titans cause a Euro 2024 upset?

Spain returns with a squad that embodies footballing poetry in motion. Their tiki-taka style – mesmerising short passes, and constant possession, are a joy to watch and a nightmare to defend against. They might lack the raw physicality of some teams, but their technical brilliance is non-negotiable. The engine room boasts the established talents of Pedri and Rodri, pinging balls to talisman Lamine Yamal – Barcelona’s successor to Lionel Messi. 

While their form has dipped slightly recently, Spain comes alive in the later stages – quarter-finals, semi-finals, they are always there. They also face a challenging group stage, pitted against current Euro champions Italy and sleeping giants Croatia. Progression seems unlikely, but La Roja are known for pulling off surprises. One of the dark horses to watch this year.

Prediction: Group stage / Round of 16
Key players: Joselu (Real Madrid), Rodri (Manchester City), Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Lamine Yamal (Barcelona)
Manager: Luis de la Fuente

Belgium: Is their first Euro 2024 trophy in sight?

For the past decade, the Red Devils have been abundant with a wealth of talent in their pool. Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, and Toby Alderweireld – these are some names that have worn the Belgian jersey for years.  Belgium has been labelled favourites and title contenders on many occasions, and yet, the trophy cabinet remains bare – a disappointment for a team once dubbed the ‘golden generation’. Belgium are expected to cruise through and top the group stage. Since this will be Kevin De Bruyne’s last Euro competition, the motivation to earn some silverware for Belgium is stronger than ever.

Young prospects have also been integrated into the squad, marking a resurgence in the new ‘golden generation’. Keep your eyes out for emerging attacking talents like Johan Bakayoko, Charles De Ketelaere, and Loïs Openda – they could be the difference-makers Belgium needs to progress.

Prediction: Quarter-finals / Semi-finals
Key players: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Jeremy Doku (Manchester City), Youri Tielemans (Aston Villa), Loïs Openda (RB Leipzig)

Italy: Euro 2020 Champions target back-to-back glory

After a disastrous World Cup qualifying campaign, current Euro champions Italy look to make amends. Determined to replicate their previous campaign and win a consecutive Euro trophy, they will be the second team to do so since Spain in 2008 and 2012. No easy feat, considering Spain and Croatia are in their group. They’re not heavy favourites, but do not underestimate the Italians.

Manager Luciano Spalletti has instilled a clear philosophy: intense pressing, strong team cohesion, and dominant possession – the same tactic and mentality that pushed Napoli to a Serie A title in 2023, scoring a staggering 77 goals with the highest average possession at 62%.

Several players see this tournament as a chance for redemption. Jorginho will be eager to bounce back from his missed penalties against Switzerland that cost Italy a World Cup spot. Others, like Nicolò Barella, fresh off the 20th Scudetto with Inter, and Juventus’ Federico Chiesa, one of the nation’s best wingers, will want to capitalise on their brilliant club form at international level. Italy are one of the tournament’s most underrated teams, and they’re the current champions.

Prediction: Round of 16 / Quarter-finals
Key players: Alessandro Bastoni (Inter Milan), Jorginho (Arsenal), Federico Chiesa (Juventus), Nicolò Barella (Inter Milan)
