English football fans have renewed hopes of a UEFA Euro 2020 victory.

With the tournament fully underway on June 11, football fans have had fun predicting the outcome of the competition.

This includes YouTube star Vizeh, which simulated the competition on both FIFA 21 and Football Manager 2021.

The YouTuber simulated the Euro 2020 tournament ten times in FIFA 21 and 100 times in Football Manager 2021.

And it’s good news for fans of England, as the Three Lions were among the biggest winners of the experiment.

In the FIFA 21 simulation, England are level with France with two tournament wins each.

Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Italy and Spain all get away with one tournament win, which seems pretty realistic.

England did not fare very well in Football Manager 2021, finishing with 14 tournament wins compared to 21 for France.

Spain and Portugal were the only other teams to reach double digits with the Football Manager 2021 simulation, so it’s still a positive sign for the Three Lions.
