As the Euro 2016 is just round the corner, the England fans are still trying to stay positive about their team’s winning prospects this year. The England team have had a mixed year so far in the league matches so far against Holland and Germany.
The team started their journey towards Euro 2016 Football Championship on a great note this year when they faced off against Germany last month. In an exciting game that first tilted in the favour of Germany during the first half, England emerged the winners. In spite of a 1-0 trail during the first half, England picked up quickly in the second half, thanks to its three of its star player- Eric Dier, Harry Kane, and Jamie Vardy (who came in as a substitute), who each scored a goal to propel England into a thrilling 3-2 win over the German team. This obviously made the English fans confident about their team’s chances in this year’s UEFA Euro 2016.
However, the celebrations proved to be too soon, since the team faced a quick defeat in their very next match a few days later. England’s momentum towards Euro 2016 could not sustain them against Holland, and even Jamie Vardy’s goal in the first half couldn’t help England win. Their efforts were overshadowed by goals from Holland’s Luciano Narsingh and Vincent Janssen. So with one win and one loss before Euro 2016 so far, it’ll be interesting to see how the team fares in the championship.
Talking about the latest from the English Premier League, some interesting transfernews is going around in the industry. The first one is from the premier club of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG)whose starplayer ZlatanIbrahimovic has supposedelyreceived offers to join them from a number of premier English clubs. But whether he will accept any of these offers or not is yet to be seen. Even so, this transfer newshas incited contrasting reactions from his fellow players. Among the prominent of these are Angel Di Maria and Thiago Silva. While Di Maria himself had done a short unsuccessful stint with Manchester United earlier, and has voiced his support for whatever choice Ibrahimovic makes. ThiagoSilva on the other hand thinks that joining the English Premier League will be a step back instead of forward for the player.
Apparently a lot of leading English Premier Leagueclubs including Chelsea and Manchester United are fishing for few new talent this year. The chief names doing the rounds include Marc-Andre TerStegen, RiyadMahrez,Everton, Eden Hazard, Kostas Manolas and a few others. Here’s hoping that one of these transfers enable England to get closer to their dream of winning Euro 2016, something which has never happened before. In fact, England are the only team who have won the European World Cupbut not the Henri Delaunay Cup yet.
