EURO 2020 - Group A & B

Updated: Feb 3

Group A - England


Until they face each other on 14/11/19, it is too close between Czech Republic and Kosovo to confidently say which team will qualify for EURO 2020.


Therefore, from Group A, I will just focus on England.


England


Many English players are inflated in price, mostly due to the rational reasoning of having an increased chance of MB. However, many are inflated in price because of the irrational demand for English players which partly comes from English players playing in leagues (The Premier League in particular) which Football Index traders tend to watch the most as the product is available in the UK and Ireland.


The three England players which are quality, young, could have potential transfer speculation and will be playing at EURO 2020 are Declan Rice, James Maddison and Ben Chilwell.


Rice and Maddison could increase in price further, however, as they already appear quite expensive (Maddison is currently the 12th most expensive player on Football Index and Rice's price ceiling is lower as a Defensive Midfielder) I have decided to focus on Ben Chilwell.



Ben Chilwell

1. Ben Chilwell


Country: England

Age: 22

Price: £1.45

Team: Leicester City

Position: Defender


Pros:

  • Young

  • Transfer Speculation - Strong MB Potential

  • Strong PB

  • Top 5 PB scores 19/20 season - 220, 138, 134, 112, 112

Cons:

  • High Price - especially for a defender


Group B - Portugal, Ukraine



As you can see Ukraine have made a very strong start to their EURO 2020 Qualifying campaign and as Portugal have a game in hand and are of course such a strong team - we can be quite confident that Ukraine and Portugal will both qualify.


Serbia do have an outside chance, but, having lost 5-0 to Ukraine in their first fixture against Ukraine, it is unlikely they will be able to qualify for EURO 2020.


Portugal
