WHO ARE THE STAR PLAYERS?


Ada Hegerberg Norway

The star of European women's football going into this tournament is Norway striker Ada Hegerberg. UEFA's player of the year has scored a phenomenal 112 goals in 97 games over the past three seasons for Lyon, firing them to back-to-back Champions League titles - and she is still only 22.

Tournament favourites France and Germany, meanwhile, will be led by Amandine Henry and Dzsenifer Marozsan respectively.

The biggest transfers of the summer

They have a bit of a rivalry going: Henry has pipped Marozsan to second place in the European Player of the Year voting two years in a row, while Lyon signed Marozsan to bolster their midfield after Henry left for the Portland Thorns. After less than a year with Portland, she returned to France to join Lyon's biggest rivals Paris Saint-Germain.

Germany, though, will have to lean on some younger, less proven players to retain their title. Lena Goessling and Anja Mittag are two members of the old guard but world-class players such as Nadine Kessler, Celia Sasic and Nadine Angerer have all retired over the past couple of years and Alexandra Popp is injured.

France's team, on the other hand, is littered with established talent. In addition to Henry, Wendie Renard, Camille Abily and Eugenie Le Sommer were all on UEFA's last player of the year shortlist, although Amel Majri has been ruled out due to an injury and Louisa Necib has retired.

England will hope to have something of a secret weapon in Fran Kirby, who starred at the World Cup in 2015 but has only recently returned from a year on the sidelines due to knee and ankle injuries. They will also expect goals from Toni Duggan, who recently swapped Manchester City for Barcelona.

Keep an eye on Sweden, too, who have a vastly experienced captain in Caroline Seger.


WHO ARE THE FAVORITES?


Dzsenifer Marozsan Germany

Germany were 2/1 pre-tournament favourites win Euro 2017, according to dabblebet, with France just behind them at 3/1 odds.

England were priced at 8/1 to claim the European title and Sweden and hosts Netherlands came in at 10/1. Norway were not much further out at 16/1, but could not get through the group stage.
