Breaking! England Have Won Euro 2020!

For the first time since 1966, England have reached the final of a major international tournament – words we never thought we’d write! But the big question is, who’s going to come out on top? If you’re an England fan, we have good news! The Stakester player base has predicted a win for the Three Lions! 

So far, we’ve had a 100% success rate – okay, so we did predict that Scotland might just edge a win against England, but if Scotland fans can celebrate a draw like it’s a win then so can we! 

Stakester’s Prediction

We’ve taken a deep dive into the data of every FIFA 21 match that took place on the Stakester app between English players and Italian players and the results are very interesting (if you’re English anyway!). Between 1st of January 2021 and the 7th of July 2021, English Stakester players won 51.8% of matches that took place between the two nationalities; which means Stakester predicts an England win in the UEFA Euro 2020 final – it’s really coming home!

In the games that our team analysed, we found that England’s average goals per game was 2.13 while Italy’s was 2.07 – pundits and fans alike have predicted that the final will be a close affair, and our FIFA stats support that. Step aside Opta, there’s a new kid on the block…

We’re expecting a close game, based on the stats. This is definitely the low end of the international scoring spectrum. But, we definitely wouldn’t mind a match where four or five goals go flying in!

Our Poster Boy

Stakester’s analysts also managed to take a look at the goal stats of English and Italian FIFA players and (unsurprisingly) Harry Kane came out on top! So, Kane won the Stakester golden boot, but will he add to his goal tally on Sunday and take home the second most important boot mentioned in this article?
