Raul says Spain favourites to win Euro 2016 football

Berlin, April 18 (IANS) Spain and Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez has said that his country is favourite, just like Germany and hosts France, to win the Euro 2016 football title next summer.

In a statement to EFE, Raul said “possibilities in the Euro will be very open with the presence of great teams. I consider that Spain is playing in a group of high quality, and has to defend the title. I have confidence that things will go well.”

The former Real Madrid captain added: “Among the rivals I think it will be Germany, which is the world champion; France, which is very strong and also plays at home. I think one of those three will be the champion, but surely there is a chance for some surprises, which happens in all championships.”

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas, now playing for Portuguese club Porto, captained Spain to win 2008 and 2012 European championship.
