Andy Murray: England have got decent chance of winning Euro

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray believes England have got a decent chance of winning Euro 2020. On Tuesday, England beat Germany 2-0 to progress into the quarterfinal. On Wednesday, Andy Murray beat German Oscar Otte in five sets to make the third round at Wimbledon.

England are set to fight Ukraine for a place in the Euro semifinal. "I got to see a little bit of yesterday’s match but not much, because I was actually practicing during the first half. I actually went along to the Scotland-England match at Wembley, which was brilliant, great fun.

Went with one Scottish friend tennis player and two English friends and had a great night, so enjoyed that," Murray said, per Metro UK. "I think England have got a pretty decent chance, it seems like, of winning.

Ukraine is a solid draw, I think, and then if they can get back to Wembley for the semi-finals, I think that’s against Denmark or Czech, they’d be favourites there. Yeah, it’s a great opportunity for England to win a major competition for the first time in a while.

Hopefully they can do it."

"I think the whole country kind of realised how important they all are, and maybe hadn’t got the recognition that they probably deserve up until now," Murray said, when asked it means to play in front of the key workers.

"So, yeah, it’s fantastic that they have been able to come along and watch some of the tennis. "Hopefully they can enjoy it and, yeah, hopefully the politicians can realise that they deserve more than what they are getting paid just now.

"I think what is it, they got something like a 1% pay rise? It was pathetic. "So, yeah, they obviously deserve a lot more than that, and, yeah, they have done an amazing job getting us through the pandemic."
