The Three Lions are favourites to progress as leaders of Group C.

With England making it to the final of the Euros, three years ago, manager Gareth Southgate came nearest to leading the Three Lions to a major title in comparison to Sir Alf Ramsey.

Harry Kane along with Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Jude Bellingham, the LaLiga Player of the Year, all will provide the Three Lions with a constant offensive threat at the Euro 2024. The England team are paired with Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia in Group C.

Kane can prove to be useful against Serbia and Slovenia, whose defenders have a median height of over 180 cm, as Southgate has been experimenting with 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3.

Meanwhile, Denmark have a big chance to finish second in Group C of the Euro 2024, while in third, we expect Serbia. Slovenia could be out of the Euro tournament without even escaping this group safely.

Player to watch out for

England: Jude Bellingham

England‘s Jude Bellingham, who scored a lot of goals for Real Madrid this season, will be the centre of attention for his opponents this summer. Defenders will be anxiously awaiting his every move around the box, coaches are going to circle him on their whiteboards and the warning to be wary of him will be communicated nonstop throughout the Euro tournament.

Serbia: Dusan Vlahovic

The 6’3 behemoth, who finished as Serie A’s second-best scorer in 2023–24 behind Lautaro Martinez, has long been a target for Premier League teams. Dusan Vlahovic has scored 13 goals in 27 appearances for the national team and 61 goals for Fiorentina and Juventus during the last three seasons.

The leader of Serbia’s 2024 Euro challenge will be Dusan Vlahovic. In his team’s opening game for Euro, Vlahovic will face England as part of a potent offensive tandem with Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Denmark: Rasmus Hojlund

After a strong debut season for Manchester United this year, Rasmus Hojlund is prepared to carry the ambitions of the Denmark nation to Euro 2024. Under Erik ten Hag, the 21-year-old had a career-high 16 goals in all competitions, despite an injury-plagued and otherwise disappointing season for the team.

Slovenia: Benjamin Sesko

Benjamin Sesko, who is just 21 years old and is 6 feet 5 inches tall, has a formidable presence as a centre forward. The Slovenian’s advancement in the Red Bull system has been greatly accelerated by his outstanding achievements. In his debut season at RB Leipzig, he scored fourteen goals.

Sesko is already a crucial member of Slovenia. 11 goals in 28 games for his nation is an incredible feat. The player will be a bright hope for his nation at this Euro event.
