Supercomputer predicts Euro 2024 winner after England’s boring draw with Denmark while Spain and Germany impress

A SUPERCOMPUTER has predicted England’s chances of Euro 2024 glory following their second Group C match.

The Three Lions were given a near twenty per cent chance of ending the nation’s 58-year-long wait for silverware prior to the tournament getting underway.

A drab 1-1 draw with Denmark, however, has well and truly tempered fans’ hopes of them lifting the Henri Delaunay trophy.

But amazingly, the chances of Southgate’s troops winning the tournament have GONE UP – albeit slightly – after their Danish draw.

According to BETSiE’s supercomputer, England now have a 20.55 per cent chance of winning the tournament and a 13.69 per cent chance of being runners-up for the second Euros on the trot.

Harry Kane and Co have 78.4, 52.83 and 34.24 per cent chances of reaching the quarter, semis and final respectively.

England currently top Group C with four points to their name and have a 99.99 per cent chance of qualifying from the group.

France are the second favourites to win the competition, with the supercomputer calculating Didier Deschamps‘ side have an 18.97 per cent chance of winning the tournament.

It’s been calculated that Les Bleus have a 32.19 per cent chance of reaching next month’s final.

Hosts Germany are third with a 14.56 per cent chance, while 2008 and 2012 winners Spain have a 13.53 per cent chance of victory.



ENGLAND stumbled to a drab 1-1 draw with Denmark.

Here’s how SunSport’s Tom Barclay rated the Three Lions team.

Jordan Pickford: 6

Looked a little jittery early doors, though there was nothing he could do about Morten Hjulmand’s corker and he made a decent parry after the break.

Kyle Walker: 7 

Made England’s opener by racing round a sleeping Victor Kristiansen – he’ll be having nightmares of that forevermore – and teeing up Kane via a deflected cross.

John Stones: 6

OK but you have got to wonder how fit he feels having barely played for Man City in the second half of the season, plus his injury and illness issues over the last month.

Marc Guehi: 8 and my star man

Really encouraging again from the Crystal Palace centre-back, looking sharp with his interceptions and assured in distribution.

Kieran Trippier: 6

Like Stones, he was fine, but England really need Luke Shaw back ASAP because having no natural left-footer at left-back is a problem.

Trent Alexander-Arnold: 5

This experiment of playing Trent in midfield is far from convincing, especially when his passing was off it like it was here, barring one good ball to Saka. Subbed on 54 minutes.

Declan Rice: 5

Had to cover so much ground as England dropped worryingly deep in the first half and also lost it a few times in front of his back four.

Bukayo Saka: 7

Not quite as electric as his first half against Serbia, but another solid showing from our right winger who has been our most consistent attacker across the two games.

Jude Bellingham: 6

Nowhere near the majestic display he put in against Serbia and one of many who looked tired.

Phil Foden: 7

Was far more involved than against Serbia – although that was not hard – and had a few dangerous efforts from range, including one that smacked the post after the break.

Harry Kane: 6

Netted his 64th goal for his country with an opener he could not really miss, but then gave the ball away from Denmark’s leveller. Surprisingly subbed.


Conor Gallagher (on for Trent, 54): 7

Vital clearance on the stretch when Christian Eriksen was lurking and was not afraid to put his foot in.

Ollie Watkins (on for Kane, 70): 6

Played in by Bellingham’s lovely ball after coming on but could not finish from an acute angle.

Jarrod Bowen (on for Foden, 69): 6

Copped a nasty tackle which saw Joakim Maehle booked.

Eberechi Eze (on for Saka, 69): 6

On for his tournament bow though he was rarely involved.

The duo have respective 26.03 and 25.84 per cent chances of reaching the final.

Defending champions Italy have a mere 4.26 per cent chance of retaining the trophy and a 10.71 per cent chance of making the final.

England fans will be thrilled to see that a computer algorithm rates their chances of winning the competition so highly.

Although they’ll be hoping for much more from Southgate’s men in their coming matches.

Southgate said: “We understand people will be disappointed with the performances and rightly so – we have to make them a lot better.

“At the moment we’re not using the ball well enough and have to accept if you do that you will suffer at times, as we have.

“We know there’s another level we have to find.”

England will face Slovenia in their final group match of the tournament on Tuesday night.
