EURO starts in 56 days. Big tournament like this deserves special thread. It is confirmed that this will happen with fans. 

12 different host cities in 12 different countries. Budapest is the only one for now that is planning full stadium capacity.

I am annoyed when we have international breaks during the season but I love big tournaments like EURO or World Cup.

With my NT out I think I am going to support Italy. How not to like them when you see them singing that beautiful anthem?

They are underdogs imo. Did not lose since 2018 I think with Mancini. Great GK and defense, and midfield with Jorginho, Verratti and Barella is so good. Full backs only weak part of the team.

According to bookmakers top 8 favorites:

England 6.00

France 6.50

Belgium 6.50

Germany 8.50

Portugal 9.00

Spain 9.00

Netherlands 12.00

Italy 12.00

No chance anyone else can win it.

But from this group I also think Netherlands has no chance really. We saw lately how bad Spain and Germany looked. Spain has no top striker. Belgium is always missing something and they lost prime Hazard.

England has amazing attacking talent but with Southgate I just cannot take them seriously. So apart from France who is best team on paper and has crazy squad depth I think only Portugal and Italy can go all the way.

What do you guys think?

Bilbao unable to guarantee fans inside stadium. Lost hosting for EURO. 

Munich and Dublin also not sure yet. 

Other 9 cities OK. Budapest only for now to provide full capacity.
