Who will clinch the Euro 2022 title at Wembley on July 31st? That’s the million dollar question right now as the start of the 16-team tournament gets closer.
Kick-off will be at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with hosts England taking on Austria in front of a sell-out crowd.
Matches will then take place at 10 venues across the UK, including the Manchester City Academy Stadium and St Mary’s Stadium. But all roads lead back to Wembley, where the final will be held at the end of the month.
Who will win Euro 2022?
It’s incredibly difficult to predict the winner of Euro 2022 – there are at least six teams who could go all the way.
England will be hoping to capitalise on the home advantage, but will be challenged by Norway, Spain, Germany, France and Sweden. It would also be foolish to write off the defending champions, the Netherlands.
So yes, it’s hard to say who will be basking in European glory come the end of the summer. But we’ve given it a good go, predicting the outcome of every single match at Euro 2022.

Group A and B will be very tight at the top, with the top two teams both finishing with the same amount of points. It will be England and Germany that boast a superior goal difference, going through as respective group winners.
I’m predicting Switzerland to cause a bit of an upset in Group C and end the Netherlands’ title defence in the group stage.
Group D will be fairly straightforward. A narrow victory for Iceland over Italy will see the country finish as group runners-up and progress into the knockout stage for the second time in their history.
England 2 – 2 Spain (AET) – England win 4-2 on penalties
Germany 1 – 2 Norway
Sweden 3 – 1 Iceland
France 1 – 0 Switzerland
England will make it through to the Euro 2022 semi-finals, but it won’t be an easy ride. A draw against a Spanish side stacked with talent will result in a penalty shoot-out, with the Lionesses emerging triumphant.
Norway, led by Ada Hegerberg, will spring a surprise against Germany, while Sweden will continue their excellent form in the group stage with a confident victory against Iceland.
France will look less than convincing against Switzerland in their quarter-final, but they will make it through regardless.
England 2 – 3 Sweden
Norway 2 – 1 France
Is it coming home? Unfortunately, in these predictions, it is not. It will be heartbreak for England in the semi-finals, despite a gutsy performance against Sweden.
Norway will continue to impress, defeating France to set up a Scandinavian final at Wembley.
Sweden 2 – 0 Norway
Sweden missed out on Olympic gold at Tokyo 2020 last year, falling to Canada in the final, but this summer they will not be the side losing out.
Stars such as Stina Blackstenius, Fridolina Rolfö and Magda Eriksson will inspire the Swedes to a comfortable victory against Norway.
