Euro 2020 (in 2021) Predictions Review

July 18th, 2021

So before the tournament got underway I made my predictions for the Euro 2020 tournament and the results are in.

I had 2 of the Semi-finalists Italy and England, and dare I say I’m chuffed to have called the Winner (Italy) and the Runners-up (England).

Not so good with the total goals to be scored, I had 129 whereas 142 goals were scored. I also didn’t get to name the top goalscorer for the tournament, I had Harry Kane, he was just 1 goal away, and in truth this was one goal away from winning a top prize too, but talk of that another day.

All in all though I wasn’t too far away.

I’ve also been able to look back on a scoresheet I did out at the start, and the results were based on my gut reaction to the teams & possible score lines and needless to say it wasn’t very good, I got only one of the semi-finalist (Spain) and none of the finalist, so here’s to more data based decisions.
