For the first time in the history of the competition, the game will be played in 11 cities in Europe. Earlier, there were at most two national honor competitions. Even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the game will be played in so many cities. Dublin and Bilbao failed to deliver on their promises after the European Football Confederation (UAE) made spectator access mandatory. So these two were removed from the host city. The games here will now take place in London and St. Petersburg.
The first game will be played at the Olympic Stadium in Rome on Friday. Italy and Turkey will face each other. It is believed that the number of spectators will touch 16,000. France will take the field only on Tuesday. The world champions will face Germany in the group stage match in Munich. The presence of Callien Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann has made France look strong. All eyes will be on Benzema(33). He has returned to the French team after a five-and-a-half-year exile.
Last season at Real Madrid was good for him. Defending champions Portugal will face Hungary in Group F. This group is called the ‘Group of Death’ of the competition. Ronaldo himself is 36 years old. But he is still strong. The current team supporting him is better than the winning team five years ago. The Portuguese team includes players such as Joe Felix, Bruno Fernandez, Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias.
The Euro has been delayed by a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is estimated that 16,000 fans will attend the opening game. The attendance of spectators in 51 games in cities of 11 countries will be similar.
