England has emerged as the outright favorite at +350 to win Euro 2024 after cruising through the qualifying campaign with an unbeaten record. The Three Lions have a great deal of attacking talent on their squad, including Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, and Bukayo Saka. However, they have not won a major trophy since the 1966 World Cup, so the players will be looking to end 58 years of hurt this summer at the 2024 Euros.

England’s odds to win Euro 2024

England was also the favorite to win the last European Championship, but it ultimately lost to Italy on penalties in the final. Yet the players have matured since then. England beat Italy twice during the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, and the sportsbooks responded by making it the favorite to lift the trophy this summer.

England vs. Serbia odds & betting preview

England’s defense will face a stern test against Serbian forwards Aleksandar Mitrović, Dušan Vlahović, and Dušan Tadić in this game. The Serbs fired in 15 goals in eight qualifying games, with Mitrović leading the charge.

However, Serbia has failed to keep a clean sheet in its last six competitive matches. That does not bode well for its chances of containing the likes of Kane, Saka, Bellingham, and Phil Foden for 90 minutes. It could prove to be an open, entertaining game, and England will likely need to defend diligently.

Top goalscorer

Captain Harry Kane will spearhead the Three Lions’ attack in Germany this summer. He was the top goalscorer at the 2018 World Cup, so he knows how to find the back of the net at major tournaments. You can bet on him winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2024, but he faces competition from the likes of Kylian Mbappé and Cristiano Ronaldo.

England’s potential path to victory

England is the favorite at FanDuel to win Group C. If the Three Lions get the better of group rivals Denmark, Serbia, and Slovenia, they will advance to the Round of 16. At that point, they would face a team that finished third in its group, so England would be the heavy favorite to progress to the quarterfinals.

Potential opponents in the quarterfinals would include Croatia, Italy, and Switzerland. England has lost to both Croatia and Italy at major tournaments in recent years. If the winning continues, the Three Lions could then end up facing France in the semifinals, and potential opponents in the final would include Spain (Group B), Portugal (Group F), and Germany (Group A).

England group stage fixtures

England’s group stage games will take place during an intense 10-day period in June. These are the fixtures that the team must navigate:

Why England could win Euro 2024

England is currently No. 3 in the FIFA world rankings after delivering a series of impressive performances in recent years. The team came within a whisker of winning the last European Championship, only to lose on penalties in the final against Italy. Key players have improved since then, including Phil Foden, Declan Rice, and Bukayo Saka. England has a formidable attacking unit, and it heads into this tournament as the sportsbooks’ favorite to lift the trophy.

What could stop England from winning Euro 2024?

Defensive shortcomings, a lack of depth in attack, and negative tactics could cause England to come unstuck. The Three Lions are heavily reliant on Kane, and they could struggle if he is injured. Central defense is a weak point, as manager Gareth Southgate is still reliant on the much-maligned Harry Maguire. He often tries to compensate by adopting cautious tactics, regularly fielding a back-five and two holding midfielders, and that could also hold England back.

Key player: Jude Bellingham

The 20-year-old midfielder has been a revelation since joining Real Madrid last summer. He is arguably the best player in the world right now, and he could be a game-changer for England at Euro 2024.

How has England performed in past Euros?

England has never won the European Championship, despite coming close on a few previous occasions. It has lost several big games on penalties, so the players may need to sharpen their skills in that department if they are to finally end their 58-year trophy drought this summer.

England: Euro FAQ

Which teams will England face in the group stage of the Euros?

England will take on Serbia, Denmark, and Slovenia in the group stage of Euro 2024. The Three Lions are the favorites to win their group, but they will likely need to be at their best if they are to beat those teams.

Who could be an X factor for England in the Euro?

Phil Foden could provide an X factor for England at the Euros. The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has stepped out of Kevin De Bruyne’s shadow to emerge as Manchester City’s key player this season, scoring goals and providing assists with relentless efficiency. It will now be hard for Gareth Southgate to leave him off the team, and he could potentially outshine Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka if he maintains his upward curve.

Is Harry Kane playing in the 2024 Euro?

Yes, Harry Kane will be playing in the 2024 Euro tournament. He has been a rostered player for the English national team since the 2009-10 season, when he played for England’s U17 team.
