Kosovo manager Bernard Challandes has hailed England as the favorites to win the European Championship.

England has already booked their place in the European championship scheduled for next year. The Three Lions look magnificent every time they step on the pitch. In seven games, England has scored 33 goals. The numbers they have put is a testament to their free-scoring ability. And Kosovo manager has praised them for the same.

Bernard Challandes have pointed out England’s proficiency in front of the goal. The Balkan nation’s boss labeled England’s forwards as the best among the teams.

“We have seen all this campaign, England has the best offensive team in the world,” he told ITV Sport.

“They are the favorite for the European Championship.”

“There is big enthusiasm within the team. People are very proud of the team. The good feeling with the support can help, particularly today,” he added.

“We have never lost here but we have never played against such a team as England.”

Kosovo are one of the newest nation to be recognized by FIFA and UEFA. Kosovo has failed a direct qualification to the Euro tournament from their Group. But they can earn a place in the next year’s tournament through a playoff in the Nations League.
