Because England is eagerly awaited ...

With its semi-final at the 2018 World Cup, England found the last four of a major tournament for the first time since Euro 1996. It has its stars (Kane, Sancho, Rashford), its experienced executives (Maguire, Walker , Henderson) and his promising talents (Bellingham, Foden, Mount).

"

We know the excitement surrounding our team, and it is relevant,

" said coach Gareth Southgate last week.

The

Three Lions

are expected at the turn, without donning the costume of big favorite.

... and she will play at Wembley

Wembley Stadium will host the semi-finals and the final of this Euro spread across the continent.

It will also be the scene of England's three matches during the group stage, starting this Sunday with this duel against Croatia (3 p.m.).

The legendary London enclosure will be able to accommodate up to 22,500 spectators, health conditions require.

That's a far cry from the 90,000 seats that fill Wembley.

But the English public proved, during the FA Cup final on May 15 (Chelsea-Leicester, 0-1), that they can create a sensation even with small staff.

Because Croatia is an outsider

It's a real shock that Wembley will witness this Sunday afternoon.

England-Croatia, it was a semi-final of the 2018 World Cup. The Croatian vice-world champions have slightly lost their splendor since, but not to the point of not being able to play spoilsport.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric still has resources.

He is assisted in the midfield by the winner of the 2021 Champions League in Chelsea, Mateo Kovacic.

"It would be great to surprise everyone in this Euro," said striker Ante Budimir for Ultimo Diez.

For the great Macedonian beginnings

Born in the 90s, the team of North Macedonia will play its first major tournament with Euro 2020. An event for this small country of 2 million inhabitants which relies on its legendary striker Goran Pandev (37 years old) , record holder of selections (116) and goals (36).

His match against Austria this Sunday (6 p.m.) is perhaps the one that is most within his reach.

Leaving Group C, which also includes Ukraine and the Netherlands, is not even an objective: the Macedonians are there to enjoy this historic summer.

And play their chances, like the surprising Iceland four years earlier, quarter-finalist against France (5-2 defeat).

Because there will be Memphis Depay

The Catalan press evokes a possible formalization at FC Barcelona on Monday. But until June 30 and the expiration of his contract, Memphis Depay remains a striker of Olympique Lyonnais. With 20 goals and 12 assists in 37 matches, he put Ligue 1 at his feet before saying goodbye. The Dutchman (27) is expected to be one of, if not the leader of the Netherlands, absent from Euro 2016 and then from the 2018 World Cup. Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt will not be too much to support him.
