Further progress to come from the Three Lions

One positive outcome of their run to the Euro 2020 Final is that there was further progress by the Three Lions under Gareth Southgate. It was a semi-final place under the current manager at the 2018 World Cup.

Next year England will be heading to Qatar to contest the FIFA World Cup. Can they take this journey further to that one final step and land some silverware?

It’s highly unlikely that anyone other than Southgate will be leading the team to Qatar. The FA is behind him and it will be interesting to see what he does next.

England to be more attack-minded?

Perhaps one criticism of England’s run at the Euro 2020 Championship was that they weren’t dynamic enough in attack. Aside from a 4-0 drubbing of Ukraine, England were a little stifled in attack for most of the tournament.

But alongside main forwards Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, England have an embarrassment of attacking riches. There’s a lot of youth around the likes of Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Jack Grealish, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Bakayo Saka.

Will Southgate now try and push to a more attacking game for England moving forward, to try and bring the best out of what could be a brilliant attack? At Euro 2020, Southgate stuck with two holding midfielders for the tournament.

Italy trimmed in World Cup 2022 odds for success

Right on the back of an impressive success at the European Championships, extending their run to 34 matches unbeaten, Italy have naturally been backed for more success.

Despite an ageing backline and no real superstar of the team, Italy pulled together to produce a great Euro 2020 tournament under Roberto Mancini, who rebuilt the Azzurri from the ground up.

Italy are a current quote of 10/1 to win the World Cup 2022* (odds record at 20:29 GMT on July 12th, 2021 at William Hill).

Reigning Champions France remain World Cup 2022 odds favourites

Despite a shock exit at Euro 2020 against Switzerland, reigning world champions France are the 6/1 favourites to land the title again* (odds record at 20:29 GMT on July 12th, 2021 at William Hill)..

They have such a talented squad, but their early exit from Euro 2020, coupled with Kylian Mbappe not shining on the big stage, will have left doubts in punters’ minds about Les Bleus.

South American giants pose a threat

Fresh off ending a long wait for silverware, Argentina are 11/1 to land the World Cup title* (odds record at 20:29 GMT on July 12th, 2021 at William Hill).

The Albiceleste ended a 28-year wait for a trophy by beating old rivals Brazil in the Copa America Final on the weekend. It could very likely be the last World Cup for Lionel Messi too.

Then there is Brazil who are always trading strong in any World Cup market. They are a quote of 11/2 to land the World Cup title next year* (odds record at 20:29 GMT on July 12th, 2021 at William Hill).
