NATIONAL FAVORITE BY BOOKMAKERS:

National favored by bookmakers in this moment are two: Germany and France departing on the same step. Slightly more secluded the Spain. The Germans are the champions of the world and also in the last two years have shown their strength and competitiveness in every department. La France has made great strides, it is the national organizer of the tournament and good Group. The French arrived in Brazil until the quarter-finals and with the various Pogba, Griezmann and Martial win would not seem a utopia.

Spain is at the center of a generational shift that still is not completed entirely, but remains a national level. Without Puyol Xavi and Villa to name a few red furies have lost a lot, but still in good squad of players that from 2008 to 2012 have won everything there was to win. The Belgium, always first fifa ranking, is given as a possible outsider given the great backbone of the team Wilmots. England and Italy follow with the English who come from ten officers straight wins and big sweep, while Italyni are veterans of the good work done by Conte and pink there are good elements that could lead to a great national achievement. The farewell already communicated by Conte at European order could lead our national team to give 110%, exactly as the coach wants. A farewell with victory also put an end to all the controversy triggered after the decision of the former coach of Juventus.

Here are the odds on national mentioned above that at the moment the major bookmakers offer on the market.
William Hill share the victory of France at 3.75, the Germany is given in 4:33. The other national in the following way: 6.50 Spain, Belgium to 11, 13 to England, Italy to 17.
