The term ‘Group of Death’ is certainly overused, but entirely applicable this summer as France, Germany and Portugal were all drawn together (along with Hungary) in Group F.
A star-studded France are out to add to their 2018 World Cup triumph by adding the Euros crown, with Didier Deschamps boasting the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba in a squad brimming with talent.
As for Germany, they are in between cycles, but Joachim Low – who will step down as Nationalmannschaft coach at the end of the tournament – still has quality all over the park.

France vs Germany prediction
Given how tight Group F could end up being, starting with a win is vital. Germany looked confident in their 7-1 warm-up win vs Latvia, but France are a different proposition altogether. Les Bleus have so much talent and belief that they should get off to a win, but it could be a real thriller.
