A long and hard year has passed since the announcement of the postponement of the European Championship 2020, and we now find ourselves a few days away from the kick-off in the upcoming European Championship, and on this occasion, the Daily Mail has spotted a report on the reasons why you might be excited about the Euro 2020 match.
The fans are back
Of course, it should be noted that the lifeblood of the game is finally back, the idea of football without fans is nothing.
Now, with the easing of the restrictions of the Corona virus and the trial operation that has already taken place to return a number of fans to the stadiums, the tournament is preparing to receive the fans, and after the tournament they will be fully returned gradually.
This means that we will see colorful chants, banners, flags and dashes on the face, everything that makes football great, which becomes a true football festival.
Matches all over Europe
11 stadiums will host the tournament
Although travel conditions over the past 18 months have been confusing and challenging, the concept for the current Euro Championships will take place in 11 different cities.
Some of the best stadiums on the continent host the best players, allowing fans from all over Europe to take part in the action, and the global theme is seen as a concept for future tournaments and a sign of things to come.
So Euro 2020, regardless of the pandemic, will be a test of this, revealing the ways this can benefit both fans and players.
Karim Benzema is back
Perhaps the most surprising call-up of any team competing in the tournament is Real Madrid star Karim Benzemas return to the France national team for the first time in six years following allegations of blackmail against his former teammate Mathieu Valbuena.
The Real Madrid striker was categorically told that he would never return to the national team again, despite his constant denials of any wrongdoing, and now coach Didier Deschamps has backed away from his pride and decided to sign him.
He may be 33 years old, but he is one of the most prominent strikers in the world at the moment, and as a result France was nominated for the title.
Does anyone remember Joachim Loew, coach of Germany’s national team, during the last encounter in the European Championships in France? The cameras showed him in a very embarrassing situation during Euro 2016.
One thing is for sure though, no one will forget the many Love-like situations in those tournaments.
Everyone loves a good goal no matter who scores it, and the Euro has seen some great goals over the years. In the last European Championship, France star Dimitri Payet scored from distance.
And who can forget Hal Robson-Kanu’s iconic role, ending Wales’ match against Belgium to leave the entire stadium in shock, or the incredible acrobatic effort by Xherdan Shaqiri against Poland.
Each tournament brings a set of goals to watch, and we hope for more this summer.
