UEFA EURO 2024 GROUP F: Preview, Prediction, Key Players and Key Matches To Watch


UEFA Euro 2024 will throw up many interesting matches between some of Europe’s top nations, and Group F will be one that fans want to keep an eye on. Portugal is one of the favorites to win the tournament but has tough tests against Turkiye, Georgia, and Czechia. The four nations will be looking to advance to the knockout stages in Germany and this could be one of the toughest groups to call.

We take an in-depth preview of Group F and how the final group of Euro 2024 may pan out. Cristiano Ronaldo spearheads Selecao das Quinas’ attack, and their performance in the group stages could determine their championship-winning credentials.


TurkiyeAy-Yıldızlılar impressed during qualifiers, topping a group that consisted of Croatia, Wales, Armenia and Latvia. They are somewhat unpredictable as they can sometimes spring a surprise but also disappoint, as was the case at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They have an experienced manager in Vincenzo Montella, who has coached AC Milan, Fiorentina, and Sevilla.

Georgia – Willy Sagnol’s men are making their debut at a major international tournament, and they’ll be eager to impress at Euro 2024. They could spring a surprise in Germany and may have their sights set on that third-place berth that could offer a route to the knockout stages. They are no slouches and have one of Europe’s most exciting attackers in Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Portugal—Roberto Martinez’s Selecao is one of the favorites to win Euro 2024 after a sensational qualifying campaign in which they won all 10 of their games and scored a remarkable 36 goals. They won the European Championships in 2016, and there are similarities with the current squad as star names Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, and Bernardo Silva are flourishing.

Czechia—Gone are the years of Paolo Nedved and Petr Cech, which made the Czechs one of the most formidable European nations. Ivan Hasek’s men fared well in qualifiers, getting the better of Poland, indicating a potential push for the Euro 2024 knockout stages. Their squad boasts several familiar faces, including captain Tomas Soucek of West Ham United.

Key Players To Watch Out in UEFA EURO 2024 Group F

Turkiye's Arda Guler

Arda Guler (Turkiye)

The Real Madrid starlet will be one to watch in Germany amid a meteoric rise that led to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu last summer. He’s been dubbed the ‘Turkish Messi’ and with good reason. He’s yet to fully dazzle on the international stage, and this is his opportunity to add to his one goal in seven caps. The 19-year-old attacker enjoyed an excellent end of the season with Los Blancos.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (Georgia)

The Napoli winger is one of Europe’s most exciting forwards, as he’s been vital for the Serie A giants over the years. That was the case as Azzurri won the Scudetto in 2023. He flourished with 11 goals in 34 Serie A games last season and won’t have the distraction of a potential transfer to deal with as he’s put pen to paper on a new deal in Naples—the Crusaders’ hopes of a memorable debut European Championship campaign rest on his shoulders.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will play in his 11th major international tournament, which could be his last. He’s the undisputed greatest goalscorer in club and international football history and could roll back the years in Germany. The Al-Nassr superstar has 130 goals and 46 assists in 207 caps and knows all about winning. He was part of the Selecao side that won the European Championships in 2016.

Patrik Schik (Czechia)

The Bayer Leverkusen forward was an important member of Xabi Alonso’s Bundesliga-title-winning side last season, registering 13 goals in 33 games across competitions. He’s a complete forward with a lethal left foot that could give defenders problems this summer. He has a sensational record on the international scene, with 19 goals in 38 caps.
