Group C Team-by-Team Outlook


The favorites headed into Euro 2024, England have a very talented squad, one that is looking to end their 58-year drought without a major trophy. They very nearly won the tournament last time around, losing the final on penalties.

This time, England are perhaps an even better team than they were last Euros. They got to play a majority of their games on home soil in the last tournament, which they won't have the benefit of doing in 2024.

England's qualifying campaign was a breeze. They went unbeaten in eight matches, scoring 22 goals and conceding only four. Their recent form is a bit more questionable, having won just once in four tries in 2024.

The strength of the Three Lions is definitely up front. They'll have arguably the best front three in the tournament, with Harry Kane in the middle of Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka. That trio combined for 91 goals for their clubs this season. Then you have Jude Bellingham in midfield, arguably one the best players in the world. Bellingham had a fantastic season for Real Madrid.

The question marks for England are in defense. They lost Harry Maguire from the squad due to injury. This will leave them with a center-back who's very inexperienced at this level, either Lewis Dunk, Marc Guehi or Ezri Konsa.

They are also unsure who will play at left-back before Luke Shaw returns. In their last warmup match, Kieran Trippier played there instead of his natural right-back position. That strips him of his biggest asset -- crossing from the right side of the pitch.

England have a lot of great players, but a defeat against Iceland a week before the tournament definitely raises some eyebrows. If they can find their groove and grow into the tournament, they should be capable of winning it all.


On their way to the final, England beat Denmark in a dramatic semifinal. This was the Danes' best finish since they shocked the world and won the Euros in 1992.

Denmark had a relatively easy group in qualifying for this tourney, but they suffered defeats to Kazakhstan and Northern Ireland. This made them slip to 21st in the FIFA rankings after they had a poor showing in the 2022 World Cup.

You could make the case for Denmark being a bit of a dark horse in this tournament. They have good players in all positions, and no true weaknesses if things break right for them.

The strength is in midfield. Christian Eriksen isn't the same player as he has been in the past, but he is still capable of pulling the strings from a deeper role. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Thomas Delaney are also experienced midfielders who can dictate a game -- especially against some of the weaker teams in the competition.

The defense has experienced center-backs playing at top clubs in Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer. They even have depth behind these two, with Joachim Andersen coming off a solid season with Crystal Palace.

Where they may be lacking a bit is with their forwards, but there are reasons for optimism there. Rasmus Hojlund finished out the season strongly for Manchester United, and the young striker has an impressive seven goals in 14 games for Denmark. Jonas Wind is also coming off a decent season with 11 Bundesliga goals for Wolfsburg. Wind could be a replacement for Hojlund if necessary.

If things break right for the Danes and they get good play from their strikers, they could make the latter stages of the tournament.


An underrated country in terms of producing great players, Serbia's squad is actually one of the most interesting in the tournament.

The talent they have doesn't always translate to success in tournaments -- or even qualifying for them. This is the first time Serbia has qualified for the Euros since the tournament expanded to 24 teams in 2016. They qualified for the last two World Cups but went out in the group stage of both of them.

This time around, they won just four of eight games in qualifying. Their two defeats were against the group winners Hungary, and they took care of business in the other games.

Serbia's attack boasts forwards who would make even some of the top teams jealous. Aleksandar Mitrovic led the team in qualifying with five goals and has an impressive 58 goals in 91 games for his country. Dusan Vlahovic will play alongside him up top, giving Serbia two giant center forwards who are good in the air. Vlahovic scored 18 goals in 38 games for Juventus this season.

Dusan Tadic will play right behind these two and is a good playmaker who can help get the side's strikers the ball in scoring areas. On the wing, Filip Kostic -- as one of the best crossers in Europe -- will cross balls into the box for the two strikers to get onto. Serbia's attack will be difficult for any team to deal with.

The weakness of the team is their center-backs. They'll likely play a back three of Milos Veljkovic, Nemanja Gudelj and Nikola Milenkovic as they did at the World Cup in 2022, when they conceded eight goals in the group stage.

If Serbia can sort out their defensive issues, they can be dangerous.


Rounding out Group C is Slovenia. They have the third-lowest ranking by FIFA of any team in the tournament, and it could be a struggle for them.

Slovenia finished second behind Denmark in their qualifying group, so they'll have some familiarity with the Danes when they face off on Matchday 1. Unfortunately, they lost and drew in their two matches with Denmark.

Slovenia's form has been relatively good since qualifying kicked off. They've lost just twice and beat Portugal in a friendly in March. They've now gone six matches unbeaten headed into the tournament.

One of the best keepers in the world will be between the sticks for Slovenia -- Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid. He has been named Slovenian Footballer of the Year seven times. It may be difficult to win the tournament if your goalkeeper needs to be your best player, but Oblak should allow them to hang around in some matches.

The outfield players really lack top-end talent. They have just four players who play in Europe's top five leagues. Their standout player is Benjamin Sesko, who scored 18 goals for RB Leipzig this season.

It will be difficult for Slovenia to get out of this group with three teams with loads more talent than them, so we can't expect much from them in this tournament.
