England has been quite unconvincing recently, yet they remain among the favorites for the European Championship title.

Much will also depend on Jude Bellingham, who has had a stellar season in Spain.

England heads to the Euro after an unexpected defeat to Iceland. Notably, they have won only once in their last five matches. Many experts still see England as one of the favorites this year, and coach Gareth Southgate aims for the European title. However, it's clear that his team will need to shift into a higher gear.

England's star player is Jude Bellingham, who goes to Germany after winning titles in La Liga and the Champions League with Real Madrid.

The young midfielder will undoubtedly play a key role for England at the Euro, yet the team boasts many other star players who will trouble their opponents, including Harry Kane, Phil Foden, and Bukayo Saka. Southgate believes Jude will be a crucial part of the team but doesn't want to place all the pressure on him.

"Will Jude lift us? That's not his job. I'm confident he's capable of it, but we won't place everything on his shoulders. We have many good players, and we can only win the tournament as a team. Jude is a brilliant guy with the right mentality and will certainly have a positive impact on his teammates."

England will face Serbia, Denmark, and Slovenia in the group stage of the European Championship.
