Poster Boy – definition – a man who epitomizes or represents a specified quality.
With the Euros just around the corner, this article will be shedding some light on the ones to watch, the stars that everyone will be tuning in to see in action. With an array of talent sure to be on show, here are my 3 Euro 2020/21 “Poster Boys” of the tournament.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Who else? The best player to ever play the beautiful game. The only player in history to score over 100 goals for three different teams and his country. Phenomenal. Portugal go into the tournament as holders following their 1-0 final win over France in 2016. On paper, there should have only been one winner and it wasn’t Portugal. This year, however, Portugal’s squad is firing on all cylinders and has quality all over the pitch. Add in Cristiano Ronaldo off the back of another 30+ goal season at Juventus, they are a team to fear at this year’s tournament. Portugal to top the “group of death” that contains Germany, France, and Hungary. Viva Ronaldo….
2. Kylian Mbappe
France’s star boy. When you think France you immediately think of this young man. Has shown over the last few years that he is a star of the future with his eye for goal and incredible pace. Has the ability to score from anywhere and can also create for his teammates. Like Portugal, the France squad is stacked with talent. Kante, Pogba, Griezmann, Dembele, and even the returning Karim Benzema who has been missing from international duty for 6 years! The only thing holding France back is the manager Didier Deschamps. France to miss out in the group stages, you heard it here first
3. Harry Kane
Someone who is known in the football world as a “Bagsman”. Harry Kane scores goals. It’s as simple as that. The England captain and the best player in the team. Kane is arguably the current best striker in the world, having won another golden boot this year for struggling spurs. However, this season, he also added the most assists award to his collection, showing another side to his game. England are going to need him to be fit and firing come this tournament to stand a chance of winning it. But Kane is going to be hoping the likes of Sterling and Rashford can shake off their poor 2nd half of the season form to help chip in with some goals and assists along with Sancho, Foden, Mount, and Grealish in attack. Could be a promising tournament for England.
