Southgate has unveiled England’s Euro 2020 squad
The England Euro 2020 squad has been announced by Gareth Southgate, and there are a few surprises. Most notably, the additions of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, defender Ben White (Brighton) and Trent Alexander-Arnold. The most notable players to miss out are Eric Dier, Nick Pope and Patrick Bamford. Bamford finished the Premier League season with an impressive 17 goals – the second-highest from an Englishman (Harry Kane ended the season with 23). He can certainly consider himself unlucky.
Updated 1st July 2021 – Today marked the day that Gareth Southgate reduced the size of his preliminary England squad to the official 26-man team to represent the Three Lions at Euro 2020. What we’ve done is include the preliminary squad too, but have rather brutally crossed out those who didn’t make the final squad. We’d love to hear your comments about Gareth’s 26 man squad and what you think about those who’ve missed out. Please comment below. But firstly, make sure you download our Euro 2020 sweepstake kit!

What are the bookmakers saying about this year’s participants at Euro 2020?
We’ve been amazed at some of the odds being thrown around for this year’s Euro 2020 tournament. Perhaps the most astonishing thing we’ve seen is the fact that England are joint-favourites! Seriously! Based on Bet 365, we’ve taken a look at the teams taking part in Euro 2020 to see whether they’re in with a chance of winning. Hopefully, this will help with your sweepstake!
In with a chance of winning Euro 2020
Looking at the teams involved in this year’s tournament, there are 8 teams in with a real chance of lifting the stunning Euro trophy this summer. Therefore, when you’re taking part in the Euro 2020 sweepstake, cross your fingers and hope you pick one of the following teams out of the hat!
- England – 5/1
- France – 5/1
- Belgium – 6/1
- Germany – 7/1
- Spain – 7/1
- Portugal – 8/1
- Italy – 11/1
- Netherlands – 12/1
We’re no experts, but we’re backing Germany to win the Euros. Germany has always played like giants at major tournaments, and they know what it tastes like to win on the big stage. Euro 2020 will be Joachim Low’s last tournament as Germany manager. Therefore, this makes us ask – is a German victory written in the stars?
It’s pretty unlikely they’ll win Euro 2020
Okay, so pick one of the following teams and it’s pretty unlikely that you’ll be winning your Euro 2020 sweepstake. However, stranger things have happened. For example, only 5 years ago Leicester City won the English Premier League and some bookmakers rated their chances at 5000/1!
- Croatia – 28/1
- Denmark – 33/1
- Turkey – 50/1
- Ukraine – 50/1
- Russia – 66/1
- Switzerland – 66/1
- Poland – 80/1
- Sweden – 80/1
- Austria – 80/1
Seeing Croatia at 28/1 was a bit of a surprise. It seems like yesterday they broke English hearts by knocking us out of the 2018 World Cup in the semi-finals. Sure, they had an ageing squad, but they’re still a dangerous team that deserves respect.
They’ll win Euro 2020 when pigs fly
We’re going to be honest with you – if you pick one of the teams below in your Euro 2020 sweepstake, you shouldn’t expect much!
Perhaps one minor victory is available here for the Welsh, as Bet 365 believe it’s more likely they’ll win the championship (200/1) compared to local rivals Scotland (250/1). However, both teams are expected to have a minimal impact this summer.
- Czech Republic – 125/1
- Wales – 200/1
- Scotland – 250/1
- Slovakia – 250/1
- Hungary – 400/1
- Finland – 500/1
- North Macedonia – 500/1
Food for thought – what happens if England win Group D, or finish runners-up?
We’ve noticed something very interesting – England are perhaps better off finishing second in their group, rather than winning it, and here’s why.
If England win Group D (Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland), they’ll play team that comes second in Group F (Portugal, France, Germany, Hungary). However, if England finish second in Group D, they’ll play the team that finishes second in Group E (Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia).
Therefore, win Group D and England will probably face either Portugal, France or Germany. However, finish runner-up in Group D, and England will probably play Sweden or Poland). It’s certainly an interesting scenario. All we’re hoping for is England to qualify into the second round (last 16).
