In preparation for one of the biggest football events in the world, we’re taking a look at the teams which have successfully qualified into EURO Group A for the final EURO 2020 (2021) tournament.
Group A Teams
Reinvigorated after a few years of decline, Turkey managed to secure a deserved spot into Euro 2020 (2021) with a game in hand – taking four points from the reigning World Cup winners, France, in the process. A strong defensive line commanded by Leicester City’s Caglar Söyüncü and an experienced striking force of Cenk Tosun and Burak Yilmaz, has allowed Şenol Güneş to transform his side into an industrious unit, more than capable of competing with the teams around them.
Mancini’s revolution of the Azzurri has prompted a dramatic turnaround in fortunes. In just a few years, the team that got eliminated from the World Cup competition in a qualification play-off game has rebuilt itself into one of the potential winners of EURO 2020 (2021). Having not dropped a single point and qualified with top marks for the competition, fans of the Italian National team are more than convinced that their team will be able to compete with the best of the best for the competition’s ultimate prize.
After waiting over half a century to enter a major international competition, Wales now enjoy the biggest European stage for the second time in just a few years. With a new generation of players to call on, manager Ryan Giggs was able to galvanise his squad to successfully beat Hungary in a winner-takes-all match to make it to the EURO 2020 (2021) competition. With the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey providing a dynamic edge to the team, Wales will fancy their chances to make it deep into the tournament.
Topping their group to qualify for the Euro 2020 (2021) tournament, the national team of Switzerland is the last team to make up Group A. Boasting a number of Premier League stars in their ranks, including Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, the Swiss national team will be looking to do more than just make up the numbers at the start of the competition, with a good chance to make it past the group stage.
