While Netherlands may go further but not far in Euro 2020, we move on to another Group C team preview – North Macedonia, about to premier in the tournament.
North Macedonia is going to the Euros after a fantastic away win (1-2) over Germany in the World Cup qualifiers.
So, naturally, the squad is feeling very confident ahead of the major event.
However, that being said, the coach, staff, and players will all get goosebumps when they step onto the pitch. Why, you ask?
They will be representing their country in a big event for the first time in their history.
Still, there’s much to be confident about because the present squad consistently rises to the occasion. Their unbreakable chemistry, strong character, and true quality have brought them to the Euros, and signify future success too.
Beating ‘Die Mannschaft’ in Duisburg was a message that Macedonia can fight with the top national teams in the world.
And what better platform to extend this victorious streak than the European Championship Euro 2020.
Euro 2020 Group C Team Preview – North Macedonia
The entire country of North Macedonia is proud of manager Igor Angelovski and his players.
And in the upcoming Euros, they are confidently optimistic that they will make it at least to the knockout stage.
So, Group C is well-balanced in quality, with only the Netherlands standing out as a clear favorite.
The other three teams are very close performance-wise and thus comparable. This is why we predict that the competition for second and third place in the final standings will be fierce.
Macedonia played Austria in the Euro qualifiers, so they are familiar with each other.
However, although Ukraine, while clearly talented, is not a top-tier national side.
Macedonia needs to demonstrate the quality, determination, and motivation that propelled the country to the Euros.
If they do so, we have no doubt that the knockout stage, which is their realistic goal, is within reach.
