Their defensive solidity, coupled with a potent attack, makes them the team to beat.

Denmark's Resurgence

Denmark are anticipated to secure the second qualifying spot. Despite a disappointing World Cup, the Danes have shown resilience and have a balanced team capable of competing at the highest level.

Rasmus Hojlund's Impact

A key player to watch is Rasmus Hojlund, who has been in fine form, netting seven times in eight qualifiers.

His presence adds a new dimension to Denmark’s attack, making them a formidable opponent.

Serbia's Defensive Concerns

Serbia, while talented, faces significant defensive issues that could hinder their progress. Their inconsistency at the back is a major concern, making it challenging to secure one of the top two spots in the group.

Tactical Adjustments Needed

For Serbia to advance, they need to address their defensive vulnerabilities and hope their attacking players can offset these weaknesses.

Slovenia's Underdog Status

Slovenia are viewed as the underdog in the group. Despite finishing second to Denmark in qualifying, their underlying statistics reveal a gap in quality compared to the top teams in the group.

Potential for Upset

While unlikely, Slovenia could still surprise if they capitalise on any slip-ups from their higher-ranked opponents.

Predictions for Qualification

Likely Qualifiers

Based on current form and squad strength, England and Denmark are predicted to qualify for the last 16 from Group C.

We're expecting England to top the group, with Denmark securing the second spot.
