This June, all eyes will be on Europe as Euro 2020 takes centre stage. The quadrennial competition is taking place a year later than scheduled after the coronavirus pandemic forced it to be postponed last year.
This is the 16th edition of the Euros, but unlike the previous tournaments, this edition is different as it’s the first that would be played across the whole of Europe, with no designated host. The Euro 2020 tournament will run between June 11 – July 11, and there are fantastic odds on top Nigerian sports betting site Melbet for each of the games. Fans could also place a bet on the outright winners on Melbet.
For the first time in years, England head to a tournament as favourites. The Three Lions, along with France, who are world champions, are bookies favourites for the competition. Both sides are well stacked in all areas, with the likes of Harry Kane, Mason Mount and Harry Maguire all expected to lead England’s charge.
Meanwhile, France can count on the talents of players like Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe, Ngolo Kante and Karim Benzema, who surprisingly makes a return after six years away from the team. The French team will hope to emulate the class of 1998/2000 that won the World Cup in 1998 before conquering Europe two years later. Les Bleus are backed as tournament favourites on Melbet, with odds of 5.55 to win Euro 2020.
Meanwhile, the number one ranked nation in the world, Belgium, are also not far behind and could finally end their wait for a major international trophy after a third-place finish at the 2018 World Cup. Roberto Martinez’s side will rely on the quality of players like Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku if they are to go all the way.
Portugal are the defending champions and have even gotten better since they won it in France five years ago. However, Cristiano Ronaldo is still the main guy in the team, and with him, they have a strong chance of retaining their trophy.
Spain will also be hoping to get back to winning international tournaments again after disappointing exits in the last three major competitions.
Italy missed the World Cup last time out, but they are back and have a squad with a blend of youth and experience. The Azzurris may not be as well stacked as their rivals, but they are good at international competitions.
Finally, Germany, the joint-most successful team in the competition, heads into the tournament with question marks over their form. But they are still a threat and are masters of international tournaments, having won four World Cups and three Euros.
Die Mannschaft’s manager Joachim Low departs his role at the end of the tournament after 15 years in charge, and will be replaced by departing Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick, but he would be eager to leave on a high.

“This game is over and we have to shift our focus to Thursday’s game against Abia Warriors in Okigwe. We are still on top but only on superior goal difference so we need to keep fighting for points in all our matches”.

The Promise Keepers will make a short trip to Okigwe for a mid-week clash with Abia Warriors scheduled to be played on Thursday 27th May, 2021.
