Mourinho Backs England To Win Euro 2020 After Win Vs Croatia  

Jose Mourinho has declared that England are “ready” to win the Euros following their 1-0 win against Croatia in Sunday’s opener. 

The Three Lions outplayed the 2018 World Cup finalists for the majority of Sunday’s Euro 2020 showdown at Wembley – winning the game thanks to a Raheem Sterling’s second-half goal.

And the SunSport columnist, Mourinho, is certain the players believe that they could repeat the heroics of Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst in the past by winning a major tournament.

“They are ready,” Mourinho told talkSPORT before the match believing England have the quality to win the competition.

And in his post-match analysis, the 58-year-old former Spurs coach was even more confident with his prediction that Harry Kane and Co could go all the way.

“The result is more than deserved,” Mourinho said. “Everything was under control and that means a lot, especially for the first game, where people have a tendency to look to the previous results in Euros and World Cups. I think it was very positive.

“Look at that squad and look at the work they have done for many years. [Jude] Bellingham, [Kalvin] Phillips have arrived recently but the others have years of national team [experience]. They feel comfortable, they have more than a team, they have a group.

They know what they are doing and you could even feel after 1-0 the way England played they were not emotional, they were not driven by let’s do a show here at Wembley.

“They were pragmatic, they were objective, keeping complete control of the situation.

“I was positive before the competition started and after this victory I am even more confident about the team.”

    England has the squad from Defence to Attack to win the tournament their bench is even scary all they need is the character and hunger to nick the trophy but they must go head to head against teams like France, Belgium and Portugal who are equally good for the trophy. I wish England well for so many reasons.

    England is definitely a contender for this trophy. They have a good, deep squad. When you have guys like Kane and Sterling in your squad, you tend to believe a bit more. It is definitely possible for the trophy to end up in English hands.
    But they face serious competition from formidable foes like France, Spain, Portugal, and Belgium. Germany on a good day can’t be written off either. And then you have a dangerous Italy under Mancini. Netherlands is also there, hungry for a trophy. And Austria really impressed me. The way they went about beating North Macedonia 3-1. They showed great mental fortitude. They might end up being the surprise team of the tournament.
    May the best team win.
