How Does The Postponement Of EURO Affect CR7, Hazard And England?

UEFA has officially announced it will postpone the UEFA EURO 2020 finals to 2021 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. This will greatly affect many stars, teams or events including Cristiano Ronaldo, Eden Hazard, England and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Hazard & the stars are hurt

The EURO delay of 12 months is an opportunity for injured players to recover and attend the tournament. The first person to rejoice at this decision was Ousmane Dembele. Hazard used to win the World Cup with France, but he was always injured in Barca.

The 22-year-old has now returned to training and with more than a year ahead, Hazard absolutely has the opportunity to regain his form and hope to be included in the French squad for the big European football festival.

Another star who is also happy is Nicolo Zaniolo. The AS Roma midfielder was in perfect form before suffering a tendon injury in the match against Juventus in January, Italia.

It is impossible not to mention Eden Hazard. The Belgian star hasn’t shown much since he came to Real Madrid due to injuries. Hazard thought that he had to miss the most important EURO period of his career, in the end, everything was still under control.

Christiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese superstar is on a journey to challenge the time while still showing impressive scoring form despite being 35 years old. He has just equalized a record for 11 consecutive games in Serie A and is still hunting for new great records.

CR7 is confident that it will still be the leader of Portugal in the next two major tournaments and the EURO 2020 finals in Europe and the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar. Compared to peers like Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla, Ronaldo is clearly still much more prolific.

Ronaldo may suffer a lot because the tournament has to be delayed for 1 year

But no matter how confident Ronaldo is, no one is sure he will show a terrible scoring rate next year. Only one thing is for sure that if the EURO is held this summer, CR7 will be stronger because, by 2021, he is 1 year older.

Ronaldo is a superman but everyone has his limits. No matter how crazy you practice and how hard you try, time is still the winner.


Gareth Southgate’s army is considered by many to be still quite young when it comes to the EURO 2020 finals. When the tournament is delayed for 1 year, their young talents will really be much older.

Stars like Jadon Sancho (19), Trent Alexander-Arnold (21), Callum Hudson-Odoi (19), Declan Rice (21), Mason Mount (21), Fikayo Tomori (22) or Tammy Abraham (22) will accumulate more experience after 1 year and become extremely formidable.

England talents like Phil Foden will have more time to improve

In addition, Phil Foden (19) may play more often at Man City while Dean Henderson (23) is more mature enough to replace Jordan Pickford as the number 1 goalkeeper.

In addition, pillars like Marcus Rashford or Harry Kane will almost certainly be healthy to attend the big festival. Both are the best strikers in English football right now and they are unlikely to be able to regain their form after injury in June 2020.

The England Football Association defines the new 2022 World Cup as a ripe time for English football to realize its ambition to bring about a big title. But with the EURO finals being delayed one year, they can do this sooner.

The obscure future of coaches

Some players who had retired from the national team after the EURO 2020 final could postpone another year. But with the coach, not so lucky. Those who are about to expire this summer have yet to see their future guaranteed.

Typically coach Age Hareide of Denmark. He led the “lead soldiers” to qualify for EURO 2020 and announced his resignation after the finals. However, with the current situation, he can break up quietly without having the opportunity to help Denmark advance in the tournament.

Basically, the Danish Football Federation has reached an agreement with coach Kasper Hjulmand. He will take over the national team from August 1, 2020.

Another coach who shares the pain with Hareide is Mick McCarthy. He was signed by the Irish Football Federation to be the coach of the national team until after EURO 2020. And whether the Republic of Ireland has tickets to the finals, McCarthy will also part ways to make room for Stephen Kenny.

Now, no one knows if Ireland passes the play-off, McCarthy will continue as captain or Kenny will take over from August.
