Wenger: France Are ‘Super Favourites’ To Win Euro 2020

Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes France are “super favourites” to become champions at Euro 2020.

France are the second-highest ranked country in world football, behind only Belgium, who they beat in the semi-finals on their way to winning the World Cup in 2018.

Wenger says the French squad has not “peaked” and will prosper for many years to come, due to their youth.

“They are not the favourites, they are the super favourite,” the FIFA chief of global football development said.

“Favourite is not big enough, because when you win the World Cup and then you have in your team, (N’Golo) Kante, (Paul) Pogba, (Karim) Benzema, (Antoine) Griezmann, (Kingsley) Coman, (Olivier) Giroud, I forget half of them. (Ousmane) Dembele.

“You will have on the bench 11 players who would play basically in any other national team.

“So you cannot refuse the fact that you are world champion and it’s a team which has not peaked.

“It’s a team that’s still going up, because they’re all young these guys. Apart from two or three, the core of the team is very young.”

      This is because the name is trademarked. There’s no Euro 2021 as the tournament takes place evey 4 yrs. This is EURO 2020 tournament but delayed for a year. It is the same with AFCON 2021. The name will still be AFCON 2021 even though it will now be played in Jan 2022.
