Belgium finished as runners-up in Euro 80, losing to West Germany in the final.

Denmark shocked the football world in 1992 when they replaced Yugoslavia in the tournament and won the whole thing.

Finland have qualified for the first international tournament in their history.

Russia were the first ever winners of the competition as they claimed the trophy at Euro 60.


The key game

Denmark v Belgium on the June 17 looks like it could have a huge bearing on this group and who finishes where. The home crowd in Copenhagen will no doubt play a huge part in the proceedings.


The big storyline

Can Belgium do what theyโ€™ve been threatening for years and finally win a major tournament? The recent injury to Kevin de Bruyne may hamper that.


The surprise package

The men to watch

Romelu Lukaku

Coming off the back of his best ever season, the Inter striker has all the tools to light up this competition.

Christian Eriksen

Back in from the cold after a difficult start at Inter, Eriksen has been playing some of the best stuff of his career.

Fredrik Jensen

The 23-year-old has been superb at Augsburg this term and has a happy knack of coming up with important goals.

Aleksandr Sobolev

A tall, imposing striker with an eye for goal, Sobolev has impressed at Spartak Moscow and could have a breakout tournament.


Prediction

  1. Belgium
  2. Denmark
  3. Finland
  4. Russia
