Carragher predicts the European Championship: “Belgium will die in front of this country”

Carragher predicts the European Championship: “Belgium will die in front of this country”

Two more sleeps and the European Championship in Germany will officially begin. About three days later, the Red Devils also start their first group stage match against Slovakia. The question is how far the Belgians can ultimately go.

Euro 2024 will be the first major tournament for the “new generation” in Belgium. After the sad World Cup finals in Qatar, national team coach Roberto Martinez bid farewell. In his wake, many prominent players retired from international football: Eden Hazard, Toby Alderweireld, Simon Mignolet,… .

The sporting fate of the Devils was then placed in the hands of Domenico Tedesco. This in turn led to a modernization of selection. In addition, he managed to make his team play more flexibly at the tactical level. The results in the qualifying campaign were also worth watching.

Easily into the quarter-finals

But in Germany, confirmation is required. Although it will never be easy to set foot next to the top nations, there seems to be a lack of quality, especially at the defensive level. But in almost every major tournament one or more participants manage to rise above themselves, and who knows, this time it might be up to Belgium.

bee Telegraph Chief English analyst Jamie Carragher shed some light on the course of the tournament. The Liverpool president is already expecting a strong start from the Devils. For example, Belgium is expected to top its group and then settle with Serbia in the second round.

France is very strong

But Carragher fears the quarter-finals could be the end point. He recommends France as a contender and rates the vice-world champion somewhat higher. “Of course they have Kevin De Bruyne. No matter who owns France, they won’t have a better player on the ball than him. But France has a lot of speed and physical ability, as well as a lot of quality. This is going to be very difficult.” So much for Belgium,” said Carragher, who ultimately sees France winning the final against hosts Germany.
