Russia

As one of the hosts of the tournament, Russia has its chances against Belgium, and one thing is sure - it will definitely try to take advantage of that fact and make its fans happy. Recently, Russia was banned from global sports for four years over doping accusations, and will not participate in big events such as the next World Cup in Qatar, the Olympic Games, and others, but EURO2020 is not included in the blacklist. So this tournament is an excellent opportunity for the team to make an outstanding performance, and to try to recover Russia's reputation.

Although the team lost two times from Belgium in the Qualification Group I, now the things are different, because we are talking for EURO 2020 finals, and each team is motivated as never before. If we put on the side the games against Belgium, the Russians performed very well in the qualification process as they won all other eight games. Russia's team has players such the striker Dzuyba and the winger Cherishev, who have plenty of strong sides to make troubles for any football team.
