Jude Bellingham

Jude Bellingham

England’s hopes at Euro 2024 rest on stars like Jude Bellingham. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder, who excelled at Borussia Dortmund and now stars for Real Madrid, is crucial for Gareth Southgate’s side with his goal-scoring ability and playmaking skills.

Jamal Musiala

As hosts, Germany will look to Jamal Musiala to perform. The 21-year-old Bayern Munich standout has been impressive, registering assists in recent games for Germany. Coach Julian Nagelsmann will count on Musiala’s creativity to drive the team’s success at Euro 2024.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo needs no introduction. Even at the age of 39, he shows no sign of stopping. The Al Nassr star is the highest goalscorer of this tournament with 14 goals to his name in 25 appearances. The EURO 2016 winner will be playing record 6th Euro, which seems like to be his last.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane will continue to spearhead England’s formidable attack as they look to overcome the loss in Euro 2020 final. The highest goal scorer for the Three Lions, Kane has scored 4 goals in 11 games in UEFA Euro.
