Poor performances cost England favourites status

England started this tournament as the sole favourite for the Euro 2024 tournament. Now we’re a week in the tournament, they’ve got 4 points after beating Serbia and drawing with Denmark. Nevertheless their performances are far from impressive. These poor performances are the reason England dropped from first favourite to third favourite. In this article we discuss the top 3 favourites according to the bookmakers.


The home nation was already in the top three favourites but now share the top spot together with France. Germany was the first team to qualify for the knockout stages after wins against Scotland and Hungary. On Sunday the Germans will play for the top spot in the group against Switzerland. The Swiss are currently second with four points, so a draw is enough for Germany to win the group.


The French side is one filled with top quality players. Their odds for winning the tournament stayed the same as before the tournament, but because of England’s poor performances it means France are shared favourites now. Even though Kylian Mbappe missed the match against Netherlands because of a broken nose, they still put 11 top quality players on the pitch. After a win in the first match against Austria, France settled for a draw with Netherlands. A draw against Poland next week is enough for France to continue to the next round.


England’s odds for winning the tournament have dropped a bit. Their pretty poor performances are the main reason for this drop. After the draw against Denmark, manager Gareth Southgate said they miss a natural replacement for Kalvin Phillips. England fans are getting annoyed by the choices the manager makes. The team is absolutely stacked with top quality players. But the likes of Cole Palmer and Anthony Gordon haven’t even played a minute in this tournament. Trent Alexander-Arnold played in midfield twice, while he played his whole Liverpool season at right back. These are all decisions that make the fans doubt is Southgate is ever capable of getting a serious result out of this team. Even though the team has pretty much secured their spot in the next round, the feeling around the team is far from positive. With the current feeling around the squad, England fans stop booking their Euro 2024 final tickets.

Dark horse

It sounds strange to call a huge football nation like Spain the dark horse, but they aren’t amongst the top favourites according to the bookmakers. When you ask any follower of the tournament which team impressed the most, Spain will definitely come to mind. Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams are two top quality youngsters, who make Spain a real force to reckon with!
