Who will be your Euros Cup Predictor heroes?

Every major football tournament throws up its own set of incredible stories. From fingertip saves at full stretch to nail-biting penalty shootouts, from super subs who change the game, to old warhorses who stoically man the defences, game in and game out. Heroes and villains are created before our eyes amid the cut and thrust of the group stages and the knockout rounds, and this year will be no different.

In the past, single players, such as Michel Platini or Cristiano Ronaldo, have dominated tournaments with their goal scoring. However, it’s interesting to note that the top goal scorer has only been named Player of the Tournament once since the award began in 1996. That player, Athletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, who plays for France, could well be one of the heroes to look out for on this year’s Euros Cup Predictor card.

Heroes of the past

Other past Euros Cup Predictor heroes include the acrobatic Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 25 Euros goals before retiring last summer. At the other end of the pitch, Dutchman Edwin van der Sar, and Spaniard Iker Casillas, share the record for the most clean sheets each at the finals.

While Ronaldo may have scored 45 tournament goals so far, and Platini may have scored no less than nine times in one finals alone in 1984, perhaps the biggest of the past Euros Cup Predictor heroes is Berti Vogts. He remains the only person to have won the Euros as both a player (in 1972) and a coach (in 1996).

England’s Euros Cup Predictor heroes to look out for in 2024

Staring from the back, Everton’s Jordan Pickford has serious hero potential. He has kept five clean sheets already in just seven Euros games and has Van Der Sar and Casillas’ record firmly in his sights, if he can leave his home club’s points deduction fiasco behind him.

Other England stars who might prove to be your Euros Cup Predictor heroes include Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham, and Harry Kane, who is currently setting the Bundesliga alight with his goal scoring prowess at Bayern Munich.

Other potential Euros Cup Predictor heroes

France, Portugal and Belgium all have the potential to produce their own heroes and snatch the trophy. Just recently, Belgian Man City player Kevin de Bruyne single-handedly rescued his club from defeat against Newcastle. Meanwhile, his fellow countryman, Romelu Lukaku, currently on loan to Roma from Chelsea, has already scored 14 goals in the tournament.

Elsewhere, Portugal have heroes of their own, with the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo, who now plies his trade in Saudi Arabia, and Man United’s Bruno Fernandes, both racking up 16 goals each in qualifying.

Perhaps the country most likely to produce one of your Euros Cup Predictor heroes is France. Their side is packed with potential, from AC Milan keeper Mike Maignan, through PSG’s midfield maestro Warren Zaire-Emery, to PSG’s epic striker Kylian Mbappe, who is scoring goals for fun up front.

Rewriting history

As discussed, Jordan Pickford has a shot at rewriting the record books with nine or more clean sheets and Cristiano Ronaldo can extend his remarkable record of 45 tournament goals. But will we see an even rarer hero emerge? Will anyone beat Dmitri Kirichenko’s fastest ever goal at 1min 7secs, or Platini’s fastest hat trick in just 18 minutes? Only time will tell.

Of course, the biggest Euros Cup Predictor heroes are your own players, who take the time and make the effort to take part in the company fun that brings everyone together. They may not pull on the three lions, or score that last minute winner, but without your Euros Cup Predictor heroes, our fantastic team building game simply wouldn’t exist!
