Belgium still have the majority of their golden generation that made them one of the favourites for the last world Cup and have had a few players come through in problem areas since. However, similarly to southgate, i simply don't rate martinez and believe he will hinder them.
Portugal will do well, England should put in a respectable showing but fall short of their potential. Spain and Germany will go out early, neither are what they were in the last decade.
France to win it. Got the depth all over the pitch, got match winners and whilst Deschamps isn't great, they're used to his approach and know what they are doing with him.
I don't understand why southgate has decided to name a bigger provisional squad and delaying the final one until June 1. Nobody else is doing that. If he's worried about potential injuries this week that's what the reserve list is for. Just screams indecisive.
