Group F Team-by-Team Outlook


The winners of Euro 2016, Portugal come into this tournament with a better squad on paper than they did that year. That team only won one game before 90 minutes in the tournament.

Portugal's group wasn't difficult in qualifying, but they took care of business easily. They won all 10 matches, scoring 36 goals and conceding just two. In 2023, they won every match they played.

This good form has bumped them up to sixth in the FIFA rankings. They've been handed a group where none of the teams can match their level of talent.

A huge storyline for Portugal remains Cristiano Ronaldo. He scored 10 goals in qualifying, the second most of any player. There is an argument to be made that they are a better team without Ronaldo and can have a more mobile forward up front who will press when the team doesn't have the ball. They benched Ronaldo during the World Cup and saw it pay off for that match.

Portugal is littered with good players throughout their team. They have other talented forwards like Joao Felix, Goncalo Ramos and Rafael Leao. The midfield is loaded with great players like Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes. In defense, they have two players who are arguably world class in Joao Cancelo and Ruben Dias.

Hopefully for their sake, they don't let the Ronaldo situation dominate the headlines. If he isn't able to contribute to the team, they'll need to put him on the bench. They have enough talent to go very deep in this tournament without him but may suffer if he's not playing well against one of the best teams in a key match.


In Euro 2020, some people considered Turkey a dark horse headed into the tournament. That didn't work out, as they failed to get a single point and were out in the group stage.

This is their chance for redemption, as they didn't make the 2022 World Cup. Their qualifying campaign was a pretty good one. They beat Croatia, won their group, and also won a friendly away to Germany. Since that win, however, they've failed to win any of their next five games.

Turkey's squad is definitely not among the best in the tournament. They particularly lack talent at forward, after the injury to Cengiz Under. Cenk Tosun will have to be the guy to score the goals. He really struggled to score at Everton but has been able to find better form at Besiktas, with 35 goals in 82 matches.

Where Turkey may be able to generate some chances is through set-piece master Hakan Calhanoglu. He is an elite free-kick taker and also good from corner kicks. His indirect set pieces can aim towards some of Turkey's tall center backs.

Luckily for Turkey, they are in a group where they can easily be the second-best team. They have a decent chance of qualifying, but it will be tough for them to make the latter stages.

Czech Republic

The Czech Republic -- also known as Czechia -- were a team that went further than expected in Euro 2020. They made the quarterfinals after upsetting the Netherlands in the Round of 16 and will look for a similar run this time.

They frankly should have done better in their qualifying group. They were the best team but suffered a 3-0 defeat to Albania and also had a 0-0 draw with Moldova. Though they've won their last four friendly matches, they were all against teams not in the tournament.

The main man for the Czechs in Euro 2020 was Patrik Schick. He scored five goals, tied for the most with Ronaldo. He will be the focus of their attack again, and his 19 goals in 38 international games is one of the better scoring records for a striker at this tournament.

Czechia doesn't have a ton of talent at the other positions. Their best midfielder is Tomas Soucek, who is a solid box-to-box type of player who can score goals from corners with his head. His 69 caps are the most on the team -- highlighting their lack of experience.

Soucek's West Ham teammate Vladimir Coufal is their best defender and one of just two Czech defenders to play in Europe's big five leagues.

Like Turkey, the Czech Republic have hope to make it out of the group because of the lack of a really strong second team. Which team makes the knockout stage may come down to when these two teams play on Matchday 3.


Making their first appearance at an international tournament, Georgia have done well to make it this far. However, things will likely be difficult for them now they've made it here.

Georgia finished third in their qualifying group and suffered some heavy defeats. That includes a 7-1 loss to Spain in September. They made it to this tournament in the playoffs -- in a 0-0 game against Greece that they won on penalty kicks.

According to FIFA's rankings, Georgia is the worst team in the tournament. They also are tied for the longest odds to win the tournament.

What Georgia does have going for them is one elite player who would probably make most squads in the tournament. That player is Napoli's Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who was instrumental in the Italian team winning Serie A in 2022-23. Kvaratskhelia has 15 goals in 30 games for Georgia, which is a great rate for a player who contributes in other ways as well.

Kvaratskhelia is one of just two players on Georgia who play in Europe's big five leagues. He will have to be excellent to have any chance of making it to the knockout stage.

Georgia could be a team to watch for future tournaments, but this one is coming just a bit too soon for them to really compete.
