European Championship 2024 Group F Preview

Anticipation is in the air as the Euro Championship 2024 edges nearer. Cristiano Ronaldo’s fans, in particular, are waiting for the Group F matches, as this will likely be the player’s last international tournament for Portugal. His team is an obvious favourite in this group, considering the star players they can call upon and their impressive qualifying performances.

The other teams in this group are Turkey, Georgia, and Czechia. Turkey were considered to be one of the dark horses in 2021, but they had a shocker of a tournament. Georgia barely made it to the tournament, partly because they were placed in a group alongside powerhouses like Spain. Czechia also faced tough competition during the qualifiers but managed to finish second in Group E of the qualifiers.




Group F Teams


Portugal opted for a change in leadership after Fernando Santos was replaced by Robert Martinez, who has injected a new sense of vigour and optimism into the team. Under Martinez’s guidance, the team won all ten matches in the qualifiers, making them the clear favourites. With a strong offensive and defensive record, it's safe to say that Portugal is poised for success in Group F.

Portugal has many experienced players apart from Ronaldo. Gonçalo Ramos, João Félix, and Rafael Leão are all excellent attackers, and with Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva supporting them from the midfield, they shall have no problems with creativity. Under Martinez's leadership, these players will aim to go all the way in the tournament.


Coach Vincenzo Montella’s leadership enabled the team to win all matches except one in Group D to reach the Euros as the leaders of their group in the qualifiers. Montella became the first foreign coach to qualify the Turkish national team for an international tournament.

Being placed in a group with Portugal, it is highly unlikely that the team will be able to secure first place, but there is still a lot of optimism surrounding this young and exciting team.


Czechia suffered a few setbacks during their qualifying campaign. The manager, Jaroslav Silhavy, sent three players back home for breaking curfew, and immediately after the first Group E match, Silhavy and the rest of the coaching staff resigned. These circumstances put the team in a tough spot, but they quickly found a replacement in Ivan Hasek.

Hasek had only briefly coached the Czech team a decade ago, but his tenure this time got off to a decent start. The team was able to secure second place in their group and ultimately made their way to the Championship. Considering their performance, the team will be pretty confident in competing against Georgia, Turkey, and Poland in their group.


Georgia squeezed their way into the Euro Championship 2024 in the playoffs, and many would consider their qualification a miracle. The team finished second last in Group A, but they defeated Luxembourg and Greece in the playoffs, securing their spot in the tournament. This is the first time Georgia has ever qualified for an international tournament, and the nation, as you might expect, is ecstatic to see their team in Germany.

Despite being the underdogs, Georgia's qualification for the Euro Championship 2024 is nothing short of a miracle. The team's performance will be closely watched in a challenging group with Portugal and Turkey. With players like Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who can produce moments of magic, Georgia might just surprise us all.




Biggest Game/Deciding Game

The most thrilling and potentially decisive game of Group F will likely be between Turkey and Czechia. As the two teams battle for the second spot, a win in this fixture could catapult them into the knockout stage. Meanwhile, the losers of this fixture will feel that their chances of making the last 16 are very slim.

Influential Players

Group F has several key players who have the potential to take their team to the finals.

- Cristiano Ronaldo: This might be the Portuguese legend's last international tournament. Fans are eager to see whether he can win the tournament for Portugal this year and leave the football world with one final moment of glory.

- Tomas Soucek: The West Ham player can score occasional goals and make excellent contributions in defence. His all-round game proved pivotal in his nation's qualifiers, but will he have the same effect in the European Championships?

- Khvicha Kvaratskhelia: One of the best Serie A players, the skilful player is a crucial player for Georgia, owing to his performance during the qualifiers. If Georgia stands a slight chance of competing against other teams in the group, it will probably be due to this man.

Possible Final Standings

Portugal is the team most likely to secure the top position in Group F, owing to the top players on their side. The team remained unbeaten in the qualifiers, and the players’ form, combined with Martinez’s leadership, can give them a decent shot at going all the way. Turkey also has talented players like Çalhanoğlu and will be hoping to secure second place.

Czechia may only be able to secure third place in the group, as the team faced several challenges during the qualifiers and might not be ready to compete on the biggest stage. Georgia has a very weak squad and if they don't finish bottom of their group, they would have done very well.
