England, runners-up in 2020, look genuine contenders and are currently the bookie’s favourites to win the tournament. Previous England sides have been talked up by the press as being likely winners, then criticised when they came up short. However, during Gareth Southgate’s tenure England’s record in major tournaments has been very good. World Cup semi finalists in 2018, runners up in Euro 2020 and then quarter finalists in the 2022 World Cup where they exited to eventual runners-up France.

Southgate is not, however, without his critics. Some accuse him of being too cautious, others dismiss his importance and say he should be doing even better with the players he has and he has also been criticised for being too loyal to certain players and for not freshening the squad up with in form players. This all seems to be a little unfair. Southgate’s work behind the scenes has been responsible for a lot of talented players coming through from the age-group teams and fulfilling their potential and his man management and loyalty to players has fostered a team spirit rarely matched in the history of the England national team.

Southgate may privately have been disappointed when Denmark were drawn out first to join England. They are a good side and will be looking for revenge after their defeat in 2020. Slovenia and Serbia, in theory, offer less stringent tests although both are capable of delivering a shock. England have a great spirit and have genuine world class talents in the likes of Declan Rice, Harry Kane and, especially, Jude Bellingham. They will be disappointed if they do not top the group.

Southgate’s side began their preparations for the tournament with friendlies against Brazil and Belgium, where, missing several key players, they suffered a 1-0 loss and were held to a draw. However, several fringe players were given a run-out and England will approach the tournament with confidence.


Functional and organised, Slovenia qualified behind Denmark, with the Danes claiming top spot thanks to a 2-1 win in Copenhagen. That result proved crucial as Slovenia, who had a better goal difference, finished level on points but were relegated to second place on the head to head record. As Denmark will no doubt testify, they are not a team to be taken lightly and are capable of taking points from sides who look better on paper. Slovenia last qualified for the Euros in 2000, where they exited in the group stage.


England are clearly favourites and should be able to get the job done. Slovenia are resilient and organised. They will be difficult to break down and England have, at times, struggled against opposition who sit in a low block. However, we predict England to come out on top, however, it might not be pretty.  England to win.
