Euro 2020: Wayne Rooney names country to win tournament

Former England striker, Wayne Rooney, has snubbed his country and named France as the favourite country to win this year’s Euro 2020.

France are in Group F alongside Germany, Hungary and Portugal.

“England are among a group of four teams that stand above the rest in terms of prospects at Euro 2020. Portugal and Belgium are in there too, but my clear favourites are France,” Rooney told The Times.

“Kylian Mbappe, N’Golo Kante, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, Hugo Lloris: you look at their quality, experience and track record as world champions and realise that if their players turn up, they will win the tournament, no problem.”
