England's most valuable XI is incredible

Euro 2020 is now less than two weeks away.

The festival of international football kicks off on June 11th with Italy's group game versus Turkey.

It promises to a fantastic tournament and it will be made all the more exciting by the fact that there isn't a clear favourite to lift the trophy at Wembley on July 11th.

Europe's eight major footballing nations right now, England, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal and Holland, are all in with a chance of glory at Euro 2020.

That octet of countries possess some of the finest and most valuable footballers operating in the game today.
