England are the favourites to become European champions for the first time since 1984 and it’s no surprise considering the faces in the Young Lions squad. 

Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe, Liverpool’s Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott, Chelsea’s Noni Madueke and Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey are just some of the stars playing at the tournament. 

Germany were seen as the team to beat as they began the Euros as reigning champions, however, they failed to win a single game and were knocked out at the group stage.
