So one year delay but UEFA Euro 2020 starts today. What team is your favorite and who do you think will win?
I always cheer for Denmark, they have good chance to get out of the group stage as they play all games at home and Finland and Russia certainly are beatable but Belgium to me is a favorite to win it all. Maybe France too. Dark horse to me is Turkey, they have very good team which nobody talks about. Would not be surprised if they advance at least to semifinals.
Go Denmark! Lets repeat 1992!

That 92' Euro was the first tournament I really followed as a child. Loved that Denmark squad which won, with phenomenal Schmeichel and Laudrup brothers.
I will root for Poland (as I am from there) but my expectations for them are zero. I live in Belgium so I hope they win it all as they have potential and experience.

Yeah, Turkey was disappointing. Italy just steamrolled them even if couple goals were kind of lucky ones. Tomorrow is when it starts for me!

Italy - Turkey 3:0

Congratulations @Troat Guru
Sorry @Hekate
This Turkey team is very talented but stubborn decisions by the coach and fit in the midfield is just not there. Not a true winger so there is just no space. We kinda made it easy for the Italians and their high pressing.

Also Italy is my favourite to win this tourney. They are just relentless and Mancini is a brilliant tournament coach. Up there with the best. Still can't forget how Galatasaray under Mancini beat Juve in the last minute and came out of the CL groups that also had Real Madrid.

Congrats @Troat Guru

That was such a scary thing to watch. Players and fans crying, seeing his wife on the sidelines getting supported by Kjaer and Schmeichel when they were doing chest compressions and defibrillation and just this huge unknown threat hanging in the air...I never felt so hopeless in my life watching sports. Was wondering why there was no ambulance ready and why it took them so long to get him moved out of the field. Glad he is alive and kind of pissed they decided to finish this game today. 22 shots to 1 and yet final score 0-1 is a blow Denmark won't recover from. They can beat Russia without Eriksen but Belgium is a different tier team....

Big wet fart by Poland.. Losing to Slovakia means we are practically out as we still have to face Spain and Sweden.
