Drogba: England or France will win Euro 2016

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba believes that England stand a great chance of upsetting hosts France and World Cup winners Germany this summer. Roy Hodgson’s men finished the qualifying campaign with their unbeaten record intact, scoring 31 goals and conceding just three in their 10 group matches.

And with that in mind, Drogba has given his thoughts on this summer’s competition – claiming that England are one of the teams to watch ahead of the opening ceremony on June 10th. Hodgson’s side will begin their campaign against Russia in Marseille before facing Wales in what is widely regarded as THE tie of the group stages.

With less than one month until the tournament gets underway, excitement is building across the continent and you can keep up with all of the latest Euro 2016 team news, injury gossip and odds via Bookies.com. In fact, the majority of squad announcements are being made in the next week or so as the pre-tournament friendly matches begin.

England will be quietly confident ahead of the tournament and supporters may actually believe that the Three Lions can emerge victorious this summer. If truth be told, England have failed to inspire confidence on the international stage since winning the World Cup in 1966 and they fell at the first hurdle when touted as potential winners at the 2014 event in Brazil.

However, Drogba has also admitted that he believes France may have a better chance to win the competition and that’s a fair assumption. On paper, Didier Deschamps’ side is perhaps even stronger than that of world champions Germany and Drogba may be proven right if Les Bleus go on to lift the trophy on July 10th.

As previously mentioned, Bookies.com can keep punters up to date on the latest news, gossip and information regarding the upcoming tournament. In fact, you can almost taste the atmosphere as France bid to win their third European Championship crown. They certainly stand a great chance of advancing to the semi-finals at the very least.

With the likes of Anthony Martial, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba in their ranks, France are exceptionally strong and it would take a brave man to back against Deschamps’ men this summer. France’s “golden generation” are certainly capable of winning the competition and they seem to raise their game in front of the passionate French crowd.

If nothing else, France will benefit from the added support on home soil this summer. While Drogba’s comments on England are correct in their own right, it would be foolish to back against France – they’re simply too strong…
