Far-Fetched Friday: England to Win Euro 2021


Euro 2021 is right around the corner, and with that are early discussions on who will win the whole thing. Well, I am here to tell you that England will win the whole tournament because of the form their best players are in going into the tournament.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at Euro 2021, or 2020 depending on who you ask.

It rarely happens, but every once in a while, we have a Far-Fetched Friday that might counter one that was already written. I say this because Jake currently has a Far-Fetched Friday that is still active, which states that England will waste this golden generation. But as wonderfully written as that article is, I am here to tell you that England will take advantage of that golden generation and win the Euros.

My primary reason for why England will win the tournament is that they have arguably the most in-form players of any country in the world, let alone Europe. Form is vital in sports, and any momentum a team can carry into a short-term international tournament is monumental.

Not even mentioning that the Champions League Final is between two British teams, ahead of this tournament, it would be hard to find a country whose players are more in form than England.

Harry Kane leads the premier league in goals and assists.

Jadon Sancho started the season slowly but now has 16 goals and 20 assists on the year, including four goals and five assists in 4 games in the month of May.

Phil Foden was a vital force in helping Manchester City to the Champions League Final with two goals and one assist in the four games between the quarter-finals and the semi-final.

John Stones seems to have recovered the form that had many labeling him as one of the best young center backs in Europe during his time at Everton.

Harry Maguire has spearheaded a resilient Manchester United defense that has performed above expectations.

And this is not to mention Jack Grealish, Mason Mount, Declan Rice, Luke Shaw, Raheem Sterling, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Dean Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka and the others that make selecting a 23 man squad for the country seems like an impossible task.

And while many believe the man choosing that squad, Gareth Southgate is the worst possible man for the job. Some things are still too good to mess up.

England has a roster that is the most in-form in Europe, and that will lead to the country's first European trophy ever and first international trophy in 55 years.

The Oklahoma City Thunder won the draft. This was the first year in my Thunder fandom where I was nervous about the draft. This was going to be the make-or-break it for the rebuild. For Thunder fans in the last ten years, the draft meant drafting raw athletic long-term projects with later picks. Players like Josh Huestis, Terrance Ferguson, and...

It's draft day! The time of year when we welcome the next wave of talent into our league. Outside of the top 3-5 players, this is the first time most fans hear the names of their next favorite player.
