Many British bookmakers agree that the France team is the big favourite for this Euro 2020.

The Netherlands are Announced as the Big Loser of the Competition
The bookmakers are not confident. According to them, the Netherlands will not make a good tournament. The home nation players at Euro 2020 who make up the Dutch squad have, with a few exceptions, been irregular this season at club level. Since the departure of Ronald Koeman and the injury of Virgil Van Dijk, the team has lost a bit of its reputation.
Romelu Lukaku Named Top Scorer at Euro 2020?
Following on from his excellent season with the Inter Milan team, Romelu Lukaku is expected to finish top scorer at Euro 2020. This is in any case the bet that many British bookmakers are making. The sportsman has scored 30 goals in all competitions this season with the Milan club. With the Red Devils, Romelu Lukaku does not want to experience the same disillusionment as at the 2018 World Cup. Well served by Kevin de Bruyne, the 28-year-old Belgian international footballer of Congolese origin should impress his opponents during the tournament. Two other names have been cited as possible top scorer of the Euro: Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo! Among the national players at Euro 2020, we remember the name of Harry Kane. Top scorer in the 2018 World Cup, he is also one of the big favourites to obtain this title at Euro 2020. He is coming out of a good season with Tottenham (23 goals and 14 assists in the Premier League), and will not lack support (Rashford, Sancho, Mount, Sterling, Foden, Grealish). In addition, he is the one who shoots the penalties, an essential parameter. It was also impossible to rule out Cristiano Ronaldo for the title of top scorer in the league. He achieved 104 national goals. Cristiano Ronaldo will be the No. 1 threat in front of the goal for Portugal. And he too will have good people around him (Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota, Joao Félix, Bernardo Silva).
