The Three Lions are among the top contenders for the Euro 2020 finals. The question though who will take part in the 23-man squad in pursuit of glory? Here is our selection based on the England Euro 2020 squad betting odds.
Euro 2020 finals will be played in 12 cities in 12 UEFA countries. The tournament will run between June 12 – July 12, 2020. One of the best online sportsbook sites in the UK, BetVictor is offering England Euro 2020 squad betting odds on a host of players to take part next summer. However, there are not many places up for grabs. Mings, Trippier, and Barkley will do their best to sneak in. Whereas, Maguire, Kane, and Sterling will more-or-less guarantee their place in the team. So, here are the favorites and the underdogs according to our predictions.
England Euro 2020 Squad Betting Odds: 23-man Shortlist for Three Lions
Goalkeepers: Pickford, Pope, Henderson
Everton’s Jordan Pickford has cemented himself as England’s number one. He was present in the starting eleven since the beginning of the 2018 World Cup. Thus, it is likely that he will keep his place with a value of 1/25 at England Euro 2020 squad betting odds, according to BetVictor. The role of a back-up goalkeeper will probably go to Nick Pope (1/4). He has been starting consistently for Burnley this season, and he will likely be picked up by Southgate.
The third choice for a goalkeeper is more difficult to select. However, we think it will land on Dean Henderson on loan at Sheffield United and linked with Bayern Munich. He cannot be far from Southgate’s thoughts with 11/8 odds to get into the Euro 2020 squad.
Defenders 100% in: Maguire, Stones, Walker
England’s defensive line is difficult to narrow down. Even Southgate called it overcrowded with competitive players. However, there are few names who will most likely be named, including Harry Maguire (1/10), John Stones (1/6), and Kyle Walker (4/6) for center back. The Red’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (1/25) will likely take the role of a right back. Whereas Ben Chilwell (1/5) might be named the left back. In addition, Joe Gomez (8/13), Tyrone Mings (10/11), and Kieran Trippier (8/11) have a good chance to take part as per BetVictor.
Midfielders: Grealish to make his England debut
We have selected seven midfielders. Declan Rice (2/5) and Jordan Henderson (1/5) are the best holding midfielders and very experienced players. Mason Mount (1/2) and James Maddison (2/7) will make a great duo if picked. Jack Grealish (13/8) is yet to make his England debut as per online sportsbook news in the UK. However, he has been involved in more goals than any other English midfielder. Besides, Dele Alli (2/5) and Ross Barkley (11/10) have a good chance but still need to work hard. BetVictor betting odds considers midfield to be the most challenging for Southgate.
Forwards: Kane, Rashford, Abraham, Sterling, Sancho
Forwards like Harry Kane (1/33), Marcus Rashford (1/10), and Raheem Sterling (1/33) will inevitably get into the squad. The question though will they meet England fans’ expectations in the tournament? Not to mention, that Jadon Sansho (1/8) is one of the hottest prospects. He has made more assists than any other English attacker this season. Besides, Tammy Abraham is strongly competing for Premier League’s top scorer. So, he will likely earn a place in next summer’s competition with England Euro 2020 squad betting odds of 1/3.
