My money will be on Germany for Euro 2016, says Bryan Robson

New Delhi: Former England and Manchester United skipper Bryan Robson stated that his money will be on Germany for the upcoming 2016 Euro Championships.

Robson thinks England can win the coveted tournament but if given a chance to put his bet into a team, his money will be on Germany.

"I would like to think so (that England can win its first major football crown in nearly half a century), but I still got to say if people were to give me money and say you have to bet on one of the teams, my money will be on Germany."

Germany won the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and are the favourites to land the Euro trophy too. 

Robson also feels that arrival of young strikers in the England side can improve their chances at the Euros and the side can go into the competition very well.

"Over the years, we have had Wayne Rooney, (Stephen) Gerard, people like that. England will do really well with Harry Kane and Vardy coming to the team with a lot of enthusiasm and real passion to do well. They are not local super stars within our league. Mentality-wise, England can go into the competition very well.”

The Euro 2016 Championship will be starting from June.
