One Of These 10 Players Could Determine Who Wins EURO 2016

Who do you think will be crowned champions?

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

The Real Madrid forward has been named FIFA’s World Player of the Year three times and his five goals during qualifying makes him the leading scorer in European Championship history. Ronaldo broke the 50-goal barrier in the last six seasons at Real, and has literally won everything at club level.

Portugal made it to the EURO 2004 finals where Ronaldo shot to international fame as an 18-year old. He would later score three times when Portugal made it to the 2012 semifinals.

Let's see if he can take it all the way this year:

2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden)

Ibrahimovic is a veteran on the pitch. But at the age of 34, this striker shows no sign of diminishing in talent or touch. He scored 11 goals in qualifying and averages over a goal every two games when it comes to international football.

On the back of winning yet another domestic title at Paris St. Germain, Ibrahimovic is both powerful and agile.

Just take a look at his spectacular goals:

3. Sergio Ramos (Spain)

The Real Madrid captain plays best in central defense and has represented Spain in three World Cups and two European Championships. He made his first international appearance at the age of 18 and, in 2013, he became the youngest player to ever reach 100 caps.

As captain of the Spain national squad, Ramos leads a strong defense that rival teams will struggle to get past.

4. Mesut Ozil (Germany)

Coming off their World Cup 2014 win in Brazil, Germany are the team to beat. And it's Mesut Ozil who is catching our eye. He gained international attention during the 2010 FIFA World Cup and was nominated for the Golden Ball Award.

Following a great season at Arsenal, this attacking midfielder is a force to be reckoned with.

5. Paul Pogba (France)

As one of the most wanted midfielders in the world, Pogba has the power and pace to get beyond opposition defences and has extraordinary touch and vision. He’s helped Juventus reach the 2015 UEFA Champions League final, and will be desperate to fire France to EURO glory on home soil.

Tipped as both the "Next Vieira" and the "Next Zidane," Pogba has what it takes to bring France the victory.

Just check out his killer moves on the pitch:

6. Gianluigi Buffon (Italy)

Regarded as one of the world's best goalkeepers, Buffon is 19 years and 157 caps into his Italy career. At the age of 38, the Juventus number one broke records this year when he went 974 minutes without conceding a goal in Series A.

His standout performance at the 2006 World Cup helped Italy take home the title, and he remains pivotal to the Azzurri's hopes of EURO 2016 glory.

7. Robert Lewandowski (Poland)

A Bayern Munich striker, Lewandowski has scored 160 goals in all competitions in his last five seasons in Germany. That includes five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg earlier this season.

With a complete all-round game, Lewandowski is Poland's leading player and a threat against any opponent.

8. Anthony Martial (France)

Martial was the recipient of the 2015 Golden Boy Award for the best under-21 player in Europe. Following his record-breaking transfer from Monaco to Manchester United last year, Martial has made an impressive debut at Old Trafford.

Breaking into the France national squad last August, he has yet to score in eight appearances. However, with his natural talent and playing on home ground, Martial has been tipped to shine when the tournament kicks off!

9. Jamie Vardy (England)

Vardy scored in eleven consecutive Premier League matches, breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy's record, and helped Leicester take home the coveted title for the first time ever. Voted the Premier League Player of the Season and FWA Footballer of the Year, Vardy made his international debut in June 2015.

Will he be the number one striker for the England team?

10. Luka Modric (Croatia)

Formerly at Tottenham, Modric has been enjoying his position as a midfielder for Real Madrid. With fantastic technical skills, he consistently performs and does not allow markers to get close to him. His speed and agility make this Croatia play-maker one to watch.
