Wayne Rooney, a former England striker, has spurned the Three Lions and chosen France as the favorite to win Euro 2020 this year.

Because of their quality, experience, and track record as world winners, Rooney believes France are clear favorites to win Euro 2020 ahead of England, Portugal, and Belgium.

France are in Group F alongside Germany, Hungary and Portugal.

“England are among a group of four teams that stand above the rest in terms of prospects at Euro 2020. Portugal and Belgium are in there too, but my clear favourites are France,” Rooney told The Times.

“Kylian Mbappe, N’Golo Kante, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, Hugo Lloris: you look at their quality, experience and track record as world champions and realise that if their players turn up, they will win the tournament, no problem.”
