Euro 2024 Group F: Portugal and the others

In this group, one thing is certain: Portugal will qualify for the next round. After that, anything is possible, but above all, it is a great opportunity for Turkey to shine on the big stage.

Türkiye

The Turks finished ahead of Croatia and Wales in their qualifying group. This is already a clear message to competitors. This choice is serious even if it only participates in the sixth Euro. She stopped at the group stage three years ago and intends to get back on track.

Coach Vincenzo Montella has been at the helm of the team for less than a year, and is counting on plenty of young talent as well as more experienced veterans. Looking at the other players in the group, Turkey has a very good chance of expanding its participation beyond the group stage.

Georgia

This is the first time Georgia has qualified for a major tournament. The simple presence in this Euro is a practical achievement of this choice. However, the Georgians were able to defeat Greece in the final of the qualifying elimination stage, which was another achievement.

Serie A fans will recognize Georgian star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who plays for Napoli. He was the team's offensive leader during the playoffs. But we should not expect great miracles from this small, honest and strong-willed team.

Portugal

This team is full of talent and was able to leave Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench in the last World Cup. Despite being 39 years old, he has lost none of his brilliance in the opposition box by scoring ten goals in as many European Nations Cup qualifying matches. With him we find Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Otavio and Joao Felix leading the attack, and there are other players behind them waiting.

Defensively, the team is equally strong despite having more youth. Want to get an idea of ​​Portugal's level of dominance in the qualifiers? The team scored 36 goals and allowed only two goals. This is not good news for the other countries in this group.

Czech Republic

The Czech Republic lost to Denmark in the quarter-finals of the last European Championship and then began to decline. They did not qualify for the 2022 World Cup and were somewhat unlucky in their attempt to qualify for Euro 2024. But the difficulties in the end overcame coach Jaroslav Silhavy, who resigned last November. We will be able to see if this team is cohesive or not. In recent international matches, new coach Ivan Hasek has selected around ten players from Sparta Prague, which gives us a good idea of ​​how united this group is.
