Belgium National Team: A heavy contender for the Euro 2024 Championship

With a world-class star lineup and impressive gameplay, the Belgium national team is determined to conquer the throne at Euro 2024. This team has participated in 6 previous Euros, most recently in 2020. Their best achievement is the runner-up position in 1980. Let’s explore the strength and ambition of the “Red Devils” in the upcoming journey.

Under the guidance of coach Domenico Tedesco, Belgium boasts a “terrifying” lineup with many world-class stars. Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, the “brain” of Manchester City who has scored 6 goals and 11 assists in 20 matches with a transfer market price as of May 27th being 50 million dollars, will be a key factor in the creative and vibrant gameplay of the team. Alongside, the return of striker Romelu Lukaku promises to increase the terrifying attacking power for the “Red Devils”.

Belgium’s defence is also solid with the presence of experienced centre-backs like Jan Vertonghen and Axel Witsel. The combination of youth and experience will help Belgium build a solid defence line, ready to face the strongest opponents.

However, to realize the dream of championship, Belgium needs to avoid regrettable mistakes as in previous tournaments. Instability and loss of concentration moments can cost them dearly. If the “Red Devils” can overcome this weakness and maximize team strength, they will completely top Group E and have the opportunity to win at Euro 2024.

Slovakia National Team: Strength and potential for the first Euro Championship

Slovakia’s national team has participated in the Euro five times, with the most recent being Euro 2020. Their best result to date is the round of 16 in 2016. Currently, the head coach of this national team is Francesco Calzona.

Captain Marek Hamšík confidently shared: “We have a cohesive collective and are always ready to give our all for each other. That is Slovakia’s biggest strength.” Coach Francesco Calzona also appreciates the balance between experience and youth in the squad.

However, Slovakia will face no small challenges at Euro 2024. Falling into a difficult group with Belgium, Romania and Ukraine, the team needs to play at their highest level to get past the group stage.

Experts rate Slovakia as a “dark horse” at Euro 2024, with a 20% chance of winning for the first time. If they overcome the challenges and maximize their strength, the team can definitely make history.

Romania National Team: Strength, weaknesses and opportunities to surprise

The Romania national team has participated in the Euro five times and the most recent was in 2016. Their best performance is quarterfinals in 2000. The head coach of the team is Edward Iordanescu.

With a squad combining experience and young talent, can Romania create a shock at the upcoming Euro 2024 in Germany? Let’s analyze deeper the strengths as well as the points to improve of the yellow team.

Romania’s strength lies in the experienced frame with many players who have stood side by side for many years. This helps Romania have a good understanding and know the strengths and weaknesses of teammates. In addition, Romanian players possess skillful personal techniques, can diversify gameplay to adapt to each opponent. They also demonstrate commendable spirit and mental strength in overcoming many challenges to win tickets to Euro 2024.

Romania promises to bring interesting surprises at Euro 2024. If they utilize the strengths well and overcome the weaknesses, they are capable of going deep beyond Group E and write the fairy tale story like Euro 2000 reaching the quarterfinals.

Ukraine National Team: Best results, strength and weakness analysis

The Ukraine national team has participated in the Euro three times, with the most recent being Euro 2020. Their best result in this tournament is reaching the quarterfinals in 2020.

The head coach of the Ukraine national team is Serhiy Rebrov. After Ukraine’s victory in March 2024 in the Euro 2024 play-off final with Iceland, coach Serhiy Rebrov said the participation in this summer’s tournament is “for our supporters, for our country, for our people and for our soldiers, who are currently defending our freedom.”

Despite facing Romania, Slovakia, and Belgium in the group stage, Ukraine is determined to overcome the challenge and bring joy to compatriots. With their brave spirit and powerful gameplay, they promise to create surprises at Euro 2024.

Predictions for Euro 2024 Group E reaching the round of 16:

Theoretically, Belgium seems to have the strongest lineup, making them a bright candidate to advance to the direct qualifying round at the European Championship for the third consecutive time.

Behind the Red Devils is where the battle is heating up, with Slovakia, Romania and Ukraine all ready to compete for the second position and one of the four best third-place positions.

Romania has only won one out of 16 matches in the history of the European Championship and we think they may have another difficult tournament, opening the opportunity for Slovakia to surpass them to achieve third place.

With UEFA Euro 2024 just days away, Belgium, one of the championship contenders, is ready for the Group E battle along with Slovakia, Ukraine, and Romania. Join us in watching and cheering for your favorite team in this video!
