It may not surprise many that, when asked recently who he thinks could win the continental tournament, Wenger went with his home nation France, whom many view as favourites for the competition.

Didier Deschamps' side could match the famous 1998-2000 Les Bleus team by following up a FIFA World Cup title with European Championship success.

"France will be the super-favourite of this tournament for many, many reasons," Wenger told beIN Sports.

"The main one, of course, is they just won the World Cup in a convincing way in Russia.

"France is a young team. And they haven't peaked yet. And that's why I believe they will be the absolute favourite as well.

"Imagine that you can have (Kylian) Mbappe, (Karim) Benzema, (Antoine) Griezmann and all the others, (Kingsley) Coman and so. You would say that not only the offensive potential is exceptional, but even the offensive potential on the bench is absolutely unbelievable.

"You have players on the bench who would play anywhere else.

"In that group of central European teams who look to be the favourites, it is France, Belgium, England, who is this little group and Netherlands may have a chance.

"It's the core of Europe that are amongst the favourites and in this group, I would put France above the others."

Here are 15 stars who will miss the European Championship this month!
