Euro 2016 Group E Preview and Predictions for Belgium
Now that the 2015/16 campaign has finally come to a close in what has undoubtedly proven an enticing annual offering for domestic fans to enjoy, we’ve decided to inspect the relevant previews and predictions surrounding Group E at Euro 2016 this summer, continuing with Belgium and all Marc Wilmots’ determined outfit can expect to achieve at the upcoming international face-off…
Chances of success:
Although Belgium don’t exactly possess the most prolific record for success upon the ever competitive international scene, this supposed ‘golden generation’ of talented international stars clearly have enough talent on board to really make things happen for Marc Wilmots’ side this summer.
Via their attacking potency inside the final third, often strong possession-play in the middle of the park, and reliably secure defensive capabilities all across their respective back-four – this is one nation who certainly have what it takes to successfully build upon their growing sense of progress at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and eventually go all the way at Euro 2016 with all things fairly considered.
Ones to watch:
Whilst the Premier League admittedly plays host to a vast array of talented Belgian stars who will more than warrant their respective place among Marc Wilmots’ first team plans this summer, Everton’s Romelu Lukaku must seemingly arrive as the most dangerous pick of the entire bunch when all is said and done.
He may have ultimately failed to set the world alight in Brazil, but when it comes to successfully holding up the ball in even the most testing of circumstances – and subsequently serving to bang in the goals at a truly formidable rate – Goodison Park’s highly rated striker can easily walk away from Euro 2016 with the golden boot award in his hands if we’re all being completely honest with Belgium’s overall chances at the upcoming competition.
From the dug-out:
Despite failing to possess the most extensive managerial CV on offer at Euro 2016 this summer, Marc Wilmots nonetheless remains extremely well placed when it comes to overseeing Belgium’s current ‘golden generation’ of players.
Impressive foundations were certainly laid by Wilmots at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil two summer’s ago – but as the pressure is most definitely mounting for Belgium with Euro 2016 seemingly waiting just around the corner right in the here and now – this summer’s upcoming tournament may just prove a make or break showcase for Belgium’s current main man in the dug-out one way or another.
Belgium’s Euro 2016 predictions:
Whilst the more pessimistic football punters out there will probably label Belgium as somewhat naïve and unprepared for the real trials and tribulations that are certain to meet them at Euro 2016, there is absolutely no reason why Marc Wilmots’ side can’t finally deliver on their massive potential, and eventually serve to set the continent alight throughout the coming summer months.
Relevant betting tips could therefore place Belgium rather highly in the race to go all the way at Euro 2016 this summer, even if Group E may in-fact turn out to be the dreaded ‘group of death’ with Italy, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland all looking to stake their claim in as promising circumstances as possible.
