The French, their coach Didier Deschamps: solid and efficient play is still just as smart and unspectacular. Most world Champions are in the front striker of the top-level football, with Olivier Giroud perhaps the torungefährlichste, but probably the team most suitable resources. At the world Cup, he gave in 546 minutes of no scoring.

For spectacle is France first and foremost, Kylian Mbappé, still only 20, and the first candidate when it comes to the question of who, after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the world footballer. Deschamps said a few days ago, after his 100. Countries game as national coach, there is no clear EM-favorites: "But we are confident, and have proven to be able to a tournament, be ready."

England: With Kane's goals and high hopes More cheering England has also, thanks to Harry Kane a strong Offensive. (Photo: Keystone)

With excellent services is the established England as number 2 in Europe. At least in the case of the betting providers. Bernard Challandes, the Swiss coach of Kosovo, keeps the Englishman even, optionally, for the Best in the world or Europe.

The squad of England has become much wider, and a Offensive with Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and the 19-year-old Jadon Sancho combines scoring chances, dribble strength, speed. On all of the items on strong talent to push also. But this is in many Topnationen the case, because the training work in the ultra-modern, gigantic young centers of the Topclubs is excellent for a long time.

Since 1966 and the world Cup Triumph in England waiting for a second title. In 1996, the ambitious national team of arbitration at the home European Championships in the semi-final. Of course, in the penalty shoot-out against Germany. Next year, the 60-year anniversary of the European Championships with 12 locations in the whole of Europe, semi-final and Final will be played at Wembley stadium. "We have great hopes," says Kane, "and we know that we have the opportunities to play for the title."

last week, delivered in England in 1000. Countries game in its history during the 7:0 against Montenegro, a Gala. Kane reach three goals within 19 minutes, a few days later he met the 4:0 in Kosovo, also in the eighth and the last game of the qualification. Managed to no English. With 12 international goals no matter he took out in addition, the calendar year-best values of 1908 and 1927. He says: "It is still each Time a dream, to make for England. But the best way is in a big tournament."

Italy: With many talents, and without point of loss A 20-Year-old Italy playmaker: Nicolo Zaniolo. (Photo: Keystone)

The changes the English are more than Spain, Germany or Italy. The Italians, however, as the only Team in addition to Belgium a perfect record in qualifying: 10 games, 30 points, 37:4 goals. And you have indicated to be on the way back to old strength. "This is a long process," says coach Roberto Mancini, "but we are Italy, four times world champion, our goal is to include soon to be world-class."

Mancini relies on many up and coming actors. Game maker Nicolo Zaniolo is 20, the toxic Federico Chiesa 22 like a champion Barella, strategist Stefano Sensi 24, and as the largest Talent Sandro Tonali, just before the EM its 20. Will celebrate birthday. Tonali is engaged in Brescia, the prominent Clubs vying for the technician who is praised in his homeland long as the new Pirlo.

"At the EM
no one wants to compete against us,"Roberto Mancini, the Italian national coach

Not only because of the 9:1 recently against Armenia, the third-highest victory in the Association's history, the Squadra Azzurra dream of their Fans. Especially since Goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma is only 20 and Jorginho, as well as Marco Verratti can act as a driver in the building for 27 years, still a couple of seasons at the very highest level. "There might be bigger Teams," said Mancini, "but I think that is all of EM nobody wants to compete against us."

Spain: With turbulence and a trainer chaos In Spain is the old knight Sergio Ramos is still high in the course. (Photo: Keystone)

it is Difficult to the Spanish, who have suffered after the boom phase, between 2008 and 2012, with three titles in their squad renovation setbacks are to assess the meantime. Old heroes are more important, such as defense chief, Sergio Ramos, the recently, be 169. Countries, game denied and, therefore, Iker Casillas replaced as the record-holder. Overall, however, Spain is missing it since 2012, special class, in addition, turbulence, complicate the efforts to find its former strength.

Association President Luis Rubiales has in 18 months in office, five times and so often, the coach changed as previous Angel Maria Villar in 18 years. Since two days, Luis Enrique is in office again, he had given in the summer of the resignation to accompany his cancer-stricken daughter in the last months of her life. Robert Moreno, previously over ten years in the team coach Luis Enrique's, has lost in eight games, never and was not willing to volunteer again in the second row. And so the Spaniards have again anxiety around the Post of the national coach.

Germany: Worries and modesty Where are the German world class defender? Germany is increasing as a geek in the tournament. (Photo: Keystone)

This restlessness, the Germans had, but the discussions of Joachim Löw have calmed down. The champion trainer has completed the adoption of a number of world Cup-the main actor of 2014 pretty rustic, but because in Germany less top than elsewhere nachstossen, the rebuild is complicated. "Currently, there are better Nations," says Löw, "France, England and Holland are well-coordinated." With midfielder Joshua Kimmich as well as the attackers, Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner have established at least three movers, two of the greatest hopes, but with serious knee injuries for months. Striker Leroy Sané is likely to be in the EM ready to use again, in the case of Abwehrhüne Niklas Süle is tight.

And so strong inside defenders are missing the German international, because Löw omitted: for example, in the case of Dortmund convincing Mats Hummels and prefer almost any Bundesliga Central defender with a German passport gives. With the Goalies Manuel Neuer and Marc-André ter Stegen, as well as Toni Kroos, only three of the players world-class in the squad. The Euro 2020 will be riding in Germany as a geek best.

Portugal: With potential, and the insatiable Ronaldo In the case of Portugal, remains the man with the number 7 – Cristiano Ronaldo. (Photo: Keystone)

the title of defender of Portugal to 2016 has proved that it is with a bit of luck and a favourable draw is possible to outsmart the favourites. In the meantime, perhaps the best Team in 16 years, the national team is Cristiano Ronaldo to the side. The success proved in the inaugural edition of the Nations Cup.

The kings of Europe, Brill is not in the qualifying, but at least Ronaldo continued to work on the legend status. Most recently, he met three times with the 6:0 against Lithuania and once when you 2:0 in Luxembourg. It now stands at 99 goals in 164 countries, ten are missing the best brand of Iranian Ali Daei. "Records are there to be broken," says the 34-Year-old.

The Superstar is also said to have joked, the Brazilians have five world Cup titles and more, if he would have played for you. So that tells at least Juventus team-mate Danilo. Maybe that is invented only good, but it would be all the statements about how much Ronaldo is confident.

Rest: With secret favorites and Vice world Romelu Lukaku and his Belgian must meet high expectations to master. (Photo: Keystone)

Belgium, the seemingly eternal secret favorites to trust you, given the enormous density of outstanding footballers a lot. The Generation of Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne takes 2020 the next start-up, to meet the high expectations.

Holland, with the strong interior defenders Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt, in turn, leaves to the delicate years of a well-established look, but is offensively predictable.

Behind the big soccer Nations, a whole series of teams that have the potential to make a splash follows. As of 2016, Wales (semi-final) and Iceland (quarter-final). This world Vice-champion of Croatia belongs, first of all, then, but also the strengthening of the Turkey with a remarkable Reservoir of notice of talented players. And the Switzerland.
