Kevin de Bruyne Reckons England Are Strong Favourites to Win Euro 2020

Kevin de Bruyne Reckons England Are Strong Favourites to Win Euro 2020

Manchester City and Belgium star Kevin de Bruyne reckons England are favourites to win next summer’s European Championships.

The 27-year-old started alongside promising English starlet Phil Foden in last night’s 2-0 Premier League win over Cardiff City, and he reckons it’s only a matter of time before his club team-mate is given the nod for Gareth Southgate’s international squad.

Coincidentally, Foden was making the first Premier League start of his career on the same night as another promising Englishman, Callum Hudson-Odoi, did the same for Chelsea against Brighton, and speaking via the Independent, de Bruyne explained: “Southgate will do what he needs to do and if Phil progresses well he has a chance to go to the Euros next year. He will play enough games for England.

“I told the England guys a week ago that you should win the Euros. I think they are favourites, with France.

“I see the guys already established, and those coming up, so the future looks really good.

“Will they win it? I don’t know, because only one team can win it but you have a chance to do well in the next ten years.”

Of course, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann and N’Golo Kante embedded in the French ranks, they should probably be the team to beat next summer, but could England’s exciting young pups be their closest challengers?

What do you think of the current state of English football?
