Spain’s Marc Cucurella believes England and the Netherlands are stronger contenders than his own team in the Euro 2024 final.
Marc Cucurella has truly been a standout player for the Spanish team this summer as they compete in Germany. As the final of Euro 2024 approaches, Cucurella believes that Spain should be ready for anything, regardless of whether they face England or Netherlands.

So far, Spain has dominated the tournament, winning all of their matches leading up to the final on Sunday. Their impressive victories over Germany in the quarter-finals and France in the semi-finals have solidified their position as the favorites going into the final, regardless of the outcome of the England-Netherlands match on Wednesday.

While the English and Dutch teams have not performed as well as the Spanish, Cucurella knows that they have talented players and expects a tough challenge from either team in Berlin. In an interview with BeIN Sports, the Chelsea full-back shared his thoughts on the potential opponents, stating, "I think they are two big teams with a lot of talented players. Tomorrow, we will watch and enjoy the game and then prepare for whoever we will face next. We must be prepared for anything."

Cucurella will be starting alongside Nico Williams for Spain once again on Sunday. The team's thrilling 2-1 victory over France on Tuesday was highlighted by a magnificent goal from 16-year-old sensation Lamine Yamal. The Spanish team, which was not considered a top contender before the tournament, now heads into the final with great confidence.

Reflecting on their journey, Cucurella shared, "For many of us, this is a dream come true. We came here with this dream a month ago and we have fought hard to get to this point. We have faced challenges, but we have played as a team. We are a family and I believe we have earned our spot in the final. On Sunday, we must savor this moment and enjoy the game."

Yamal's impressive performance has not gone unnoticed, as he became the youngest goal-scorer in Euros history. When asked about the 16-year-old, Cucurella praised his talent, saying, "I am at a loss for words to explain it. He has a special gift. He may be young, but he has immense talent. If he continues on this path, he has the potential to become one of the best players in the world."

In other news, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the English team and their chances at Euro 2024. Declan Rice has been advised on the mistakes he may be making while playing for England, and it has also been reported that manager Gareth Southgate will be knighted even if the team loses in the semi-finals. It will be an exciting match to watch as England and Netherlands battle it out for a spot in the final against Spain.
