Why are Chinese tech brands flocking to Euro 2020?

Everybody's eyes were on the ball during the tense England v Germany Euro 2020 football match this week - mine included. But almost every time I saw a sponsored brand on the digital billboards that run the circumference of the pitch at Wembley, there appeared to be a Chinese super-brand logo on display.

Who will win Euro 2021? Odds, betting favorites, best bets for tournament quarterfinals

Euro 2021 largely played to expectations in the group stages. There were a couple of upsets and some surprising results, but there weren't any shocking early exits or squads that tumbled further down than expected in their group standings. That allowed bettors to capitalize on trends, identify favorable odds and make some solid bets.

Enjoying the Plotless Fever Dream of Euro 2020

There is a reasonable argument that this year’s European soccer championship should not be happening. Like the Tokyo Olympics, the tournament is a holdover from last summer, when it was called off because of the pandemic. But it’s not as if the coronavirus has vanished, obligingly, from the scene. On July 1st, the World Health Organization reported a ten-per-cent increase in cases across Europe in the previous week, seeded, at least partly, by people going to stadiums and bars. In the United Kingdom, where the tournament’s semifinals and final will take place, a third wave of the virus, powered by the Delta variant, is potentially on its way: more than twenty-six thousand cases were recorded on June 30th, sixty per cent more than the week before. Hospitalizations remain low, but have also increased by more than fifty per cent in England in the same period. Germany’s Interior Minister has called the gathering of large, beer-drinking, anthem-singing crowds across the continent “utterly irresponsible,” and the Prime Minister of Italy, whose team has performed strongly so far, has suggested that the final should be moved from London to Rome.

Euro 2021 updated odds: Who will win it? England is new betting favorite

There's a good chance that it is coming home for England, at least according to the sportsbooks. England fans eager to see the national team win its first-ever European Championship will enjoy how the sportsbooks are handicapping the Euro 2021 title race. Five U.S.-based betting houses have England at roughly 2-to-1 odds to win the tournament. Their odds were greater than 6-to-1 at the start of the Round of 16, ranking third behind France and Italy.

How Italy Has Rampaged Through Euro 2020

The new-look Italy has survived its sternest test. Since Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, manager Roberto Mancini has rebuilt the national team by emphasizing quick passing, high pressing, and, most of all, goals. The culture shift has worked better than anyone could have dreamed. Italy was on a 31-game unbeaten streak going into Friday’s match against Belgium. The advanced numbers approved of its form; the eye test liked its cohesion and the speed with which it drove at the goal after forcing turnovers. Italy flooded opposing nets during the streak, scoring four, five, six, seven, and nine goals at various times. It was the complete opposite of the dour, boring Italy teams that had earned reputations for defensive cynicism and attacking opportunism for generations.

Euro 2020 fatal flaws: What could keep England, Spain, Italy, all quarterfinalists from winning it all

Only eight teams remain in Euro 2020, but the picture as to who is going to win this thing has barely cleared up at all. Some of the original batch of favorites are gone -- France, Portugal, Germany -- but according to ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI), no remaining team has even a 30% chance of winning the tournament.
