France has always been the favorite to win the championship in international competitions. Of course, the one that has attracted much attention is the “genius forward” Mbappe. He announced some time ago that he would leave Paris Saint-Germain to join Real Madrid, and ended up gloriously by winning the French Cup. In his career in Paris, this time he will lead his teammates to the championship as the captain of the French team.

There are also Antoine Griezmann and N’Golo Kanté who play for Real Madrid. Kanté is also known as “the man who blocks Messi.” These two Coupled with Mbappe’s French team being full of firepower, it’s no wonder they are hailed as favorites to win the championship!

Austria has made great progress in football in recent years, especially under the leadership of former Manchester United coach Rangnick.

Slovakia originally had Marek Hamšík, but he also retired last year and served as one of the national team coaches, but this was not enough for Slovakia to break out of the cocoon; Romania has no star outside the team , and the results in international competitions also have no outstanding performance.

Group F (Türkiye, Georgia, Portugal, Czech Republic)

Ronaldo is participating in the European Cup for the sixth time , and has been in excellent form in recent club matches, becoming the Saudi League scoring champion! But he was on the bench during the 2022 World Cup knockout rounds, so whether he will play is still a question mark.

The core of the Czech team is Tomáš Souček, a versatile midfielder with both offense and defense. However, because the Czech Republic relies too much on him, if he is not in good condition that day or is blocked by the opponent, the Czech Republic’s winning rate will drop significantly.

Georgia is participating in the European Cup for the first time after breaking through the play-offs.
