With the next set of qualifiers coming up, we’ve taken another look at the Euro 2020 winner odds and updated our power rankings for the leading contenders to lift the trophy.
This will be the 16th European Championship and UEFA are breaking new ground by staging the tournament in 12 cities in a dozen different countries.
However, both semis and the final will be staged at Wembley Stadium in London, with the decider scheduled to take place on July 12.
Here are our Euro 2020 predictions regarding which teams can challenge for outright glory:
Les Bleus were runners-up in the last renewal of this competition and went on to go one better at the 2018 World Cup, with Didier Deschamps leading a disciplined outfit to success.
Established stars such as Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane are still under 30 and at their peak, while prodigious youngsters like Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele can surely only improve.
Deschamps will be content with five wins from six games in Group H and this remains the team to beat, even if a 2-0 loss in Turkey did raise some question marks.
Gareth Southgate’s exciting young side made the World Cup semis and then showed there is still scope for more improvement when finishing third in the Nations League.
Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Dele Alli and Jordan Pickford were all under 25 at Russia 2018, so the spine of this team should only get stronger, while starlets like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jadon Sancho and Tammy Abraham are coming through.
The Three Lions have secured four straight wins to kick off their Group A campaign and potential home advantage in the closing stages keeps them at number two in our rankings, even though they were a bit sloppy when beating Kosovo 5-3.
The Red Devils had to settle for third place at Russia 2018 after being edged out by France in the semi-finals, so the quest for a first major trophy goes on.
Some members of Belgium’s golden generation are starting to age, but there will still be plenty of life left in Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois when this tournament comes around.
Roberto Martinez has been boosted by an impressive start to qualifying, with 19 goals scored and just one conceded in a run of six consecutive victories, including 3-0 and 4-0 triumphs over Scotland.
Die Mannschaft have hinted they are ready to bounce back from a woeful run of results in 2018, when finishing bottom of their World Cup group and Nations League pool.
That sequence included just one win in seven competitive fixtures, putting the pressure on Joachim Low to turn things around, especially after putting Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng out to grass.
Four wins from five matches in Group C is a solid start, although the Netherlands did avenge a 3-2 Amsterdam defeat with a 4-2 Hamburg success.
Even so, history dictates that Germany must be respected in this event, having been crowned champions three times and reaching the semis on nine occasions.
La Roja have faltered at three straight major tournaments since completing back-to-back wins in this competition in 2012, with a World Cup victory splitting those triumphs.
However, Spain look back on track, with six wins on the bounce helping them to quickly take control of Group F, and the conveyor belt of stylish young players still seems to be working well.
Inspirational captain Sergio Ramos is at the veteran stage of his career, but can help steer them through the sad departure of Luis Enrique due to personal reasons.
Ronald Koeman has awoken this sleeping giant of international football, judged on a series of promising performances in the Nations League, with England beaten in the semis.
Virgil van Dijk is a rock at the back, Luuk de Jong, Memphis Depay and Quincy Promes have come of age up front, while Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt are potential superstars.
Swapping away wins with Germany in Group C highlights how the Dutch are still capable of blowing hot and cold, but more and more experts are becoming convinced they will be a major force next summer.
Failing to qualify for the World Cup was seen as a national disaster, so the Azzurri are clearly fired up to make amends with a first European Championship success since 1968.
Roberto Mancini secured some solid Nations League results with a young squad and Italy have hit the ground running in Group J of this event.
Six straight victories have featured 18 goals for and just three against, with a 3-0 triumph in Greece catching the eye.
The defending champions do have a fine record in this tournament, having also been runners-up in 2004 and semi-finalists in 2012.
Obviously, the big worry is that Cristiano Ronaldo will be 35 when Euro 2020 takes place, but he did hit a hat-trick versus Switzerland on route to Nations League glory and struck four times in September’s 5-1 romp in Lithuania.
The likes of Bernardo Silva, Andre Silva, Joao Felix, Renato Sanches and Gelson Martins are also capable of taking on more responsibility, while this is a team with a strong work ethic.
Many punters will see the Blazers as a value option, judged on their Russia 2018 exploits, when only losing out to France in the final.
A thrilling home win over Spain in the Nations League also showed what this team is capable of, but we just fear Ballon d’Or hero Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Ivan Perisic are not getting any younger.
That concern also applies to some key defenders and there have been some mixed results in Group E.
10 RUSSIA 66/1
Poland did occupy this position until losing away to Slovenia and only drawing at home to Austria in Group G, so Russia are now reinstated into the top 10.
Stanislav Cherchesov’s side performed with credit in the World Cup on home turf and have picked up five wins in six Group I fixtures, with the sole loss coming in Belgium.
Some of the victories have been merely workmanlike, but captain Artem Dzyuba keeps banging in the goals and there is great unity in this squad.
