Next summer, Europe’s finest footballers will be on show at Euro 2016 in a tournament expanded to 24 teams. There will be some new additions on the pitch when qualification ends, including Gareth Bale and Wales, as well as Ireland. Besides the addition, it would be great to know who will take the tournament by storm, and here is the predictions of dream team with 4-3-3 formation.
Goalkeeper: David de Gea (Spain)
De Gea almost certain to take the gloves from Iker Casillas, helping the team with the combination of agility, reflexes and command of his area.
Right-back: Matteo Darmian
Darmian is a natural center-back, which means he is a redoubtable defender. In recent years Darmian has played as a dynamic fullback on either flank; although he prefers the right. He is known for his good quality of offensive and defensive play.
Center-back: Raphael Varane (France)
Varane’s combination of high pace, physical strength and positional poise for someone so young. He shone at the last World Cup, and there will be huge expectations in his home country next year.
Center-back: Giorgio Chiellini (Italy)
Walter Mazzarri once labeled him as “a force of nature, he’s a universal player that any coach would love to have on his team.” Chiellini is considered to be one of the top defenders in Europe,and in 2013 he was ranked as the seventh-best footballer playing in Europe.
Left-back: Jordi Alba (Spain)
Alba, a scorer in the 2012 final win over Italy, but in Barcelona’s tightened defence, no left-back has looked as solid or enterprising.
Midfielder: David Alaba (Austria)
Alaba offers supreme athleticism wherever he plays and his arrival on the scene has certainly helped revive his country’s fortunes.
Midfielder: Paul Pogba (France)
The Champions League final showed off the strength of his running and tackling, but also some laxity in passing and tracking back. Europa League 2016 will be the test to assess his talent.
Midfielder: Toni Kroos (Germany)
Played in 22 winning games last season, Kroos dictates the tempo and creates the angles for attackers quietly but effectively.
Forward: Antoine Griezmann (France)
The small, lightweight and incisive Griezmann is the player who supplies flair and surprise for Didier Deschamps’ team. He is a player in significant transfer demand this summer and can play as winger or support striker.
Forward: Eden Hazard (Belgium)
He was the best player in the Premier League this past season, leading Chelsea to the title, but Hazard has yet to truly excel in the same way for his country. Belgium will need the brightest of their many stars to show his best.
Forward: Harry Kane (England)
Kane has good pace, but was weak in the air and had not scored on his loan at Norwich; and he just need more chance to be on pitch to show his best.
