Euro 2020: Belgian stars Dries Mertens and Jan Vertonghen will choose their favorites for the tournament

Belgian duo Jan Vertonghen and Dries Mertens feel France and England will be favorites at Euro 2020.

Vertonghen and Mertens are expected to represent Belgium in Group B of Euro 2020. They play an important role for the “red devils” who are looking to get deeper into the tournament.

Many feel that Belgium is not as strong as they were at the 2018 World Cup, but with some stable players they could be dark horses again.

France, who finished second in 2016, are hoping to do better once again this summer and join the 2018 World Cup by winning Euro 2020.

Vertonghen is feeling that France and the UK will be the favorites, reducing Belgium’s chances at Euro 2020.

“I don’t see us as a big favorite, but we’re not far from it,” Vertongen told a news conference on Thursday. “The best favorites for me are France and England.

“But I know we can beat any country. In recent years we have beaten England a few times and we can do the same with France.

“I don’t think any country wants to play against us,” he said. First place in the world rankings shows that we are at the top, but we are not a big favorite. “

Vertonghen’s international teammate Driss Mertens echoed his compatriot’s views. After spending most of his career in Italy, he feels the Italians could be a strong contender as well.

“I see world champions France as the best favorite. England and Italy are a little lower than that, and we are there, too, ”Mertens said.

France and England could meet in the first knockout round of Euro 2020

In order not to play against France, England must ensure that they finish first in their group.

If Gareth Southgate’s side finish second and France lead their group, the two will clash in the quarter-finals.

England were knocked out by Croatia at the 2018 World Cup and will seek revenge for the defeat this Sunday.

Gareth Southgate’s students enter the tournament with confidence in most of the top players.
