French Team: A formidable force and ambition to win Euro 2024 for the third time

With a world-class roster and rich battle experience, Les Bleus are determined to win the Euro championship for the third time in history.

The French team is always a heavy contender for any major title. The current golden generation has reached the final of 3/4 of the most recent tournaments, including an impressive World Cup 2018 victory. Now, Les Bleus are eager to conquer Euro 2024 to assert their dominant position.

The strength of France lies in its uniformity across all lines. A solid defence with Kounde, Upamecano and world-class goalkeeper Maignan. The midfield has a combination of Kante, Rabiot and young star Camavinga. But the most frightening is the star-studded attack with Mbappe who has scored 44 goals with 7 assists in 50 PSG matches, Antoine Griezmann who has scored 23 goals with 8 assists in 44 Atlético Madrid matches, Olivier Giroud who has scored 17 goals with 8 assists in 46 AC Milan matches and young talent Kolo Muani who has scored 9 goals with 5 assists in 39 matches.

With a quality squad and great ambition, the French team promises to make an exciting and dramatic Euro season. Fans are eagerly awaiting the brilliant performance of Mbappe and his teammates in their journey to conquer the European throne.

Netherlands Team: Strength and potential to win the Euro for the second time

With a talented roster and attractive attacking style of play, the Netherlands team is considered one of the top contenders for the Euro 2024 championship. Let’s delve deeper into the team’s roster and prospects for “The Orange Tornado” in this tournament.

The Netherlands team is always known for its beautiful attacking style and creativity on the field. At Euro 2024, they once again bring a quality team, combining experience and youth.

On the attacking line, 2 stars Memphis Depay who has scored 6 goals with 1 assist in 26 Atlético Madrid matches and Donyell Malen who has scored 15 goals with 3 assists in 38 Dortmund matches are dangerous spearheads with speed, technique and excellent finishing skills. The Dutch team will be a nightmare for any opponent.

With a combination of talent, world-class centre-back Virgil van Dijk’s experience and attractive play, the Dutch team can completely go deep into the knock-out rounds at Euro 2024.

Polish Team: Strength and weakness of “The White Eagle”

With the guidance of talented coach Michal Probierz and world-class star Robert Lewandowski, can Poland surprise by defeating France, Netherlands, Austria and surpass their quarterfinal achievement at Euro 2016?

The Polish team is always seen as a formidable “dark horse” in major tournaments. At Euro 2024, “The White Eagle” will bring a squad that combines experience and youth, with the ambition to conquer the summit of European football.

The strength of Poland lies in its highly quality attack, led by the great striker Robert Lewandowski who has scored 24 goals with 9 assists in 46 Barcelona matches. With his brilliant form at Barcelona, Lewandowski promises to be a sharp spearhead on the Polish attack. In addition, the presence of talented players like midfielder Piotr Zielinski who has scored 4 goals with 2 assists in 35 Napoli matches and Arkadiusz Milik who has scored 8 goals with 1 assist in 36 Juventus matches will make Poland’s attack more diverse and unpredictable.

However, Poland’s weakness lies in defence. Despite owning world-class goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, Poland’s defence often makes mistakes and concedes quite a lot. This requires coach Michal Probierz to make reasonable adjustments to bolster the defence, while maximizing the strength of the attack to advance straight to the round of 16.

Austrian Team: Analysis of strengths, weaknesses and chances of overcoming the “death group”

With a force that combines experience and youth, the Austrian team is determined to make a difference in the “death group” at Euro 2024. Let’s delve deeper into the strengths, weaknesses and advancement opportunities of coach Ralf Rangnick’s students.

After reaching the round of 16 at Euro 2020, the Austrian team is very excited for the upcoming Euro 2024 campaign. However, falling into the “death group” with the presence of championship contender France and two “horny” opponents Netherlands and Poland makes Austria’s path to progress more thorny than ever.

Nevertheless, with a squad that harmoniously combines experience and youth, “The Eagles” can definitely surprise. The solid defence with centre-back Lienhart and full-back Lainer, the creative midfield of Sabitzer, Laimer, Baumgartner, coupled with the dangerous spearhead Arnautovic on attack who has scored 7 goals with 3 assists in 31 Inter matches, will create surprises in front of big teams.

With a difficult fixture having to confront France, Netherlands and Poland, Austria’s chances of advancing will depend a lot on the results of direct matches. Rangnick and his students need to have at least one victory and earn additional points before direct competitors for the ticket to advance are Poland and the Netherlands.

Let’s wait and see, whether Austria can overcome the challenge in the “death group” and fly high at this year’s Euro. With a determined spirit and bold play, Rangnick’s troops promise to create interesting surprises.

Predictions for Euro 2024 Group D entering the round of 16:

We are approaching UEFA Euro 2024, and Group D is attracting special attention. France, with impressive past achievements, is predicted to be the top contender to win the group. The French team has demonstrated their strength through a victory with a double from young star Mbappe against the Netherlands 2-1 in their qualifying group.

However, the strength of other teams cannot be underestimated. While not really convincing in matches with Greece, Germany and Chile, France is still the team expected to top Group D. But Austria’s rise under coach Rangnick is posing a big challenge to the Netherlands in the race for second place.

Although Rangnick is lacking some quality players to make a difference, we believe that the Netherlands will take second place with some memorable victories. As for Poland, although they are unbeaten in six games and possess talents that can surprise, they may compete for third place with Austria.
