Football News: England Eyeing Euro 2024 Glory, but Can They End Major Tournament Drought?

England are among the favorites to lift the trophy at Euro 2024, but the Three Lions face a tough challenge as they look to end their long wait for a major tournament triumph.

England’s Euro 2024 Campaign

Gareth Southgate’s exciting young side came agonizingly close to Euro 2020 glory, but were ultimately pipped to the post in a penalty shootout against Italy at Wembley Stadium. However, with England’s star players boasting more top-level experience together, they’ll be hoping to go all the way this time around.

Drawn in Group C alongside Denmark, Serbia, and Slovenia, England will kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Serbia on Sunday, June 16th in Gelsenkirchen. If they top the group, the Three Lions will face one of the best third-place teams from Groups D, E, or F in the Round of 16.

Should England finish second in their group, a daunting tie against Germany could await in the first knockout round, with potential quarter-final clashes against the likes of Spain, Italy, or Croatia, and a possible semi-final showdown with either Portugal or the Netherlands.

Facing the Challenges Ahead

According to the latest FIFA world rankings, England are currently placed fourth, giving them a strong chance of navigating their way through the early stages. However, the latter stages could prove trickier, with a potential semifinal meeting with world number two France potentially standing in the way of England’s dreams of Euro 2024 glory.

“While a semifinal exit to the eventual champions would be a respectable result, it’s unlikely to appease England fans, who will be hoping Southgate can finally guide the Three Lions to a major tournament triumph.”
