Micah Richards reveals his Euro 2024 favorites as ex-England international tips ‘incredible’ Germany star to host breakthrough tournament


Micah Richards has revealed his favorites for Euro 2024, tipping Germany’s Florian Wirtz as his breakout star at the tournament.

«France is a favorite for me,» Richards said. «I don’t think they have better players than England, but when they come together and with the system they play, I think they are a better team than England right now,» he added.

As part of his tournament predictions, Richards insisted that Wirtz, who has won a league and cup double with Bayer Leverkusen this season, is his one to watch, describing the 21-year-old as «unbelievable».

According to Marco in Spain, the attacking midfielder is set to join Real Madrid next summer.

Wirtz has scored 18 goals and provided 20 assists in 49 games this season and has established himself as a regular in Julian Nagelsmann’s national team as Germany prepares to host the Euros on home soil, starting on Friday in Munich against Scotland.

When asked for his dark horses for the Euros, Richards chose Portugal, who won the tournament in 2016.

Portugal, led by Roberto Martinez and led by Cristiano Ronaldo, were the only team to finish the qualifying campaign with a 100% record, winning all ten matches.

«Ronaldo is still scoring goals and they have the likes of Bernardo Silva scoring week in and week out for Man City,» said Richards.
