One scout from a leading Premier League club told ESPN that, within the game, there is a concern that the pool of top-class centre-forwards is shrinking dramatically. Euro 2020 (and the Copa America) has done little to dispel that perception, which is why every top club wants to sign Haaland if, or when, Dortmund are ready to let him go.
Ostracised from the national team for nearly six years due to his alleged role in a blackmail scandal, he was brought back to the team by manager Didier Deschamp, and he didn’t need much time to do what he always does: score goals. He has scored 360 of them in all club competitions, and after a long wait, he’s up to 29 for his country.
The ‘Group of Death’ features reigning world champions, France, reigning European champions, Portugal, and 2014 World Cup winners, Germany, with Hungary given little chance as the fourth side in the pool.
Mark Ogden: I had low expectations due to the workload of last season and the strange format of games being staged in 11 cities across Europe, and the tournament has lived down to my pessimistic outlook. But nobody ever remembers the group stage, and it is all about the knockout games, so I expect Euro 2020 to truly come to life from the round of 16 onwards. The 24-team format has meant a big gulf between the top teams and the outsiders, then you have a seeding system that led to Group F being stacked with three potential winners in France, Germany and Portugal, so there is definitely room for improvement in terms of the format. The absence of a single host has also led to a disconnected feel so far, but it will get better from now on, as knockout games between top teams always generate memories and excitement.
