So here is who Jose Mourinho, Alex Scott, Gary Neville & Co think is going to win this summer.
JOSE MOURINHO – FRANCE
The SunSport columnist said: “The only weakness is, they have so many good players, that probably the noise around the team from the media, from the public, is a big one.
“They have to win it. If not, it’s an unsuccessful Euros.”
GARY NEVILLE – ENGLAND
“I’m going to go with England because of the home tournament [aspect]. I think we will go a step further than the last World Cup where we got the semi-finals, I just think the momentum is with us.”

ALEX SCOTT – BELGIUM
“Belgium are very strong and their players are all shining at the moment. They will have a special environment in their squad, as well as some hugely talented players.”
ROY KEANE – ITALY
“There is no doubt that France are the team to beat but the team I’m going with, and I just have a sneaky feeling for them, is Italy.
“I look at their form for the last year or two, and we obviously know they’re capable of turning up for the big tournaments.”
ALAN SHEARER – FRANCE
“France to win it. They have got talent all over the pitch.”
HARRY REDKNAPP – ENGLAND
The former West Ham and Tottenham manager exclusively told SunSport: “We have been here before — but I have never been so certain as I am right now, this time England really CAN go all the way.
“In fact never mind can, I honestly believe we WILL. So much so that I’ll genuinely be very disappointed if we don’t win the Euros.”

GARY LINEKER – FRANCE
“They were losing finalists five years ago, they won the World Cup three years ago and now they have Karim Benzema too.
“They’ll be improved and they have brilliant young players too.”
MICAH RICHARDS – BELGIUM
“Belgium are going to win the Euros because Kevin De Bruyne – the best midfielder in the world – is going to light it up.
“The team has got that experience now that they need too.”
RIO FERDINAND – FRANCE
“France have got the most depth and the most talent, that’s why they are my favourites.”
ASHLEY WILLIAMS – TURKEY
“My hot take for the tournament is Turkey. Not a lot of people will be expecting them to do well but they have a good squad and will be right at it.”
DANNY MURPHY – FRANCE
“France have got a wonderful squad and Benzema gives them more quality and competition for places at the top end of the pitch. In midfield, N’Golo Kante is just on a different level at the moment.”
LEE DIXON – ENGLAND
“Why not England? We do realistically have a good chance so let’s champion that. With our attacking prowess we will hurt teams.”
CHRIS SUTTON – FRANCE
“I fancy France to edge it. They probably have more match-winners than any other team.”
CHRIS WADDLE – ITALY
“I’ve watched them a few times and I really like the way Roberto Mancini has set them up to play on the front foot – they are not like a typical Italy side who shut up shop and try to nick a goal on the counter-attack.”
ROBERT GREEN – FRANCE
“I don’t see anyone as particularly standing out. I will pick France but Denmark are my dark horses – they look very tidy, although they might be lacking a centre-forward.”
ENI ALUKO – ENGLAND
“If you look at some of the top players for England, they’re the top players in Europe right now.”
WILLIAM GALLAS – FRANCE
The ex-Arsenal and Chelsea centre-back exclusively told SunSport: “We have a big chance to lift the trophy. We have the strongest squad in the tournament.
“Winning the World Cup will definitely help them win the Euros.”
EMILE HESKEY – BELGIUM
“This team has been together and playing for a long time. Now they have that cohesion and have been threatening for a while to be that team in a tournament.”
MARK POUGATCH – FRANCE
“They’ve got the experience because they are the world champions, they’ve got a system that they all understand, they all play really well in.”
ALAN MCINALLY – BELGIUM
“There’s Dries Mertens, Thorgan Hazard, De Bruyne.
“I’ll go Belgium to win the competition outright and I’ll throw this in there, Lukaku has to be there or there abouts to be top-goal scorer in the competition too.”
IAN RUSH – ITALY
“I think it’s wide open but I think the dark horses are Italy because they can produce when needed.”
SUN READERS – FRANCE
In a recent poll undertaken by SunSport, 43 per cent of you reckon Didier Deschamps’ men will do it while just 23 per cent backed the Three Lions.
