    Denmark squad (those in bold are the ones to watch out for imo).

    Keepers
    Daniel Iversen, Oldham
    Oskar Snorre Olsen, Lyngby BK
    Peter Vindahl Jensen, FC Nordsjælland

    Defenders
    Andreas Poulsen, Borussia Mönchengladbach
    Asger Sørensen, Regensburg
    Jacob Rasmussen, Empoli
    Joakim Mæhle, Genk
    Mads Valentin Pedersen, FC Nordsjælland
    Rasmus Nissen, AFC Ajax
    Victor Nelsson, FC Nordsjælland
    Joachim Andersen, Sampdoria

    Midfielders
    Jens Stage, AGF
    Mathias Jensen, Celta Vigo
    Magnus Kofod Andersen, FC Nordsjælland
    Philip Billing, Huddersfield Town
    Oliver Abildgaard, AaB
    Anders Dreyer, St. Mirren
    Andreas Skov Olsen, FC Nordsjælland
    Robert Skov, FC København


    Forwards
    Jacob Bruun Larsen, Borussia Dortmund
    Jonas Wind, FC København

    Marcus Ingvartsen, Genk
    Mikkel Duelund, Dynamo Kiev

    Prediction:
    It's always difficult to guess the outcome of these U21 tournaments as they seem slightly more random at times, but I don't think I've ever seen a better Danish squad than this one, and this even without the likes of Kasper Dolberg and Andreas Christensen. Could go all the way, but their first game against Germany will be decisive (for both countries).

    Possible line-ups:

    Iversen

    Poulsen or Valentin
    Andersen
    Nelsson
    Nissen or Mæhle

    Billing
    Jensen
    Kofod Andersen

    Skov Olsen
    Bruun Larsen
    Skov

    England squad in full:

    It does look a little profile-weak doesn't it? Whom to look out for and who's missing from the list? Hudson-Odoi and Sancho are the most obvious ones I guess.

    Wan-Bissaka, Gray, Sessegnon and Foden the ones to look out for - anyone else?

    The squad list
    1. Dean Henderson
    2. Aaran Wan-Bissaka
    3. Jay Dasilva
    4. Jake Clarke-Salter
    5. Fikayo Tomori
    6. Kieran Dowell
    7. Demarai Gray
    8. James Maddison
    9. Dominic Solanke
    10. Phil Foden
    11. Ryan Sessegnon
    12. Jonjoe Kenny
    13. Angus Gunn
    14. Lloyd Kelly
    15. Ezri Konsa
    16. Hamza Choudhury
    17. Harvey Barnes
    18. Mason Mount
    19. Dominic Calvert-Lewin
    20. Morgan Gibbs-White
    21. Reiss Nelson
    22. Freddie Woodman
    23. Tammy Abraham

    Reiss Nelson - Hamza is a really good DM (if he plays) and interested to see how Gray and Maddison perform.
    Thought Gibbs-White looked good for Wolves whenever I saw him.
    Is that the Lloyd Kelly?

    Ha, actually googled Lloyd Kelly as the name seemed familiar, he's a defender who has recently joined Bournemouth.

    And yeah forgot about Maddison, he seems highly rated too. This U21 England team seems pretty like a very balanced team overall but perhaps lacking one of Hudson or Sancho for that final spark?

    Harvey Barnes is alright too isn't he? Rodgers might get a lot out of him.

    It's a different tournament, but Ukraine just won the FIFA U-20 World Cup, beating South Korea 3:1 in the final:



    Don't ask me about which players are good, I don't know any of them. I think the best Ukrainian talents are Zinchenko and Lunin and they are already at Man City and Real Madrid respectively.

    Chiesa has looked a wonderful talent each time I've seen him play.

    I've went all in on Italy as hosts at 4/1.

    I think I'm on a winner.

    I'm going to back Denmark to beat Germany tonight, the odds seems well lucrative. Germany will always be clear favorites in games against smaller nations but if you look at the available players in the two teams there shouldn't be much between them really in terms of clubs and playingtime.

    So I've backed them at odds 5 (the equivalent to 4/1) tonight. We'll see.

    You easily could be. England could prove difficult and same with France I guess.
