列强综述

英格兰迎来第一届没有“双德”的大赛,国家队和英超均处在更新换代的格局中。前一年秋天,“渣叔”克洛普登陆英伦,即将掀起一个时代。波切蒂诺进入执掌热刺的第二年,处于事业上升期,他一手提拔的凯恩阿里戴尔迅速成为国家队的骨干。乔·哈特仍是国家队主力,他效力的曼城会在这个夏天迎来瓜迪奥拉,此时他还不知道自己接下来的命运。鲁尼进入职业生涯暮年,佩戴队长袖标的他在这一届阵容里退居中场。在两年前世界杯上崭露头角的斯特林继续担纲锋线主力,替补席上坐着一位比他还小三岁的拉什福德,这名18岁的小将在完成了职业生涯第一个赛季之后就被征召进了国家队。

法国的阵容仍处在新老结合,瓦拉内因伤退出,四名后防主力(埃弗拉,萨尼亚,科斯切尔尼和拉米)均在30岁以上。核心博格巴格里兹曼经历了巴西世界杯的洗礼日渐成熟,后者风头正劲,在本届比赛中包揽MVP和最佳射手。英超处子赛季异常高光的帕耶特成为这届队伍的“大腿”,屡屡轰出让人瞠目的世界波。他们和正值壮年的吉鲁一起让人迅速忘记了原来本泽马不在阵中。替补席上坐着20岁的马夏尔和19岁的科曼,前者在一个赛季前刚刚登陆曼联。彼时年仅17岁的姆巴佩尚未进入人们视野,他将在一年后的欧冠和两年后的世界杯上惊艳世人。乌姆蒂蒂则在欧洲杯期间完成了国家队首秀,他打满了法国队后三场比赛的每一分钟,并将于这个夏天加盟巴塞罗那。

西班牙依旧沉陷在王朝的落日余晖中,这是功勋主帅博斯克率队参加的最后一届大赛。旧班底除了哈维和阿隆索以外仍悉数在阵,皮克,拉莫斯,伊涅斯塔,布斯克茨,大卫·席尔瓦,阿尔巴——这几人在两年后的俄罗斯世界杯仍出任主力。德赫亚取代卡西利亚斯首次以主力身份登上大赛舞台,众望所归。迭戈·科斯塔落选,在尤文图斯两个赛季表现出色的莫拉塔扛起锋线大旗。尽管前两轮顺风顺水,但末战被克罗地亚击溃后以小组第二的身份提前遭遇意大利,完败于孔蒂的球队之后草草收场。

正处于新老交替的葡萄牙队意外摘得冠军,两年前世界杯小组赛即出局,如今的红人B-席尔瓦,A-席尔瓦和B-费尔南德斯彼时还不是大赛的一员。后防由老将佩佩丰特领衔,前场则是已经离开曼联远赴土耳其的纳尼和超级替补夸雷斯马辅佐C罗。阵中引入不少新鲜血液,身披10号战袍的23岁新人若奥·马里奥,出阵全部七场比赛,22岁的左后卫格雷罗也大放异彩,他们在欧洲杯结束后分别加盟国际米兰和多特蒙德。中场安德烈·戈麦斯更是以五千万高价被巴塞罗那引进。最耀眼的自然是18岁妖人桑谢斯,他凭借淘汰赛阶段出色的表现荣膺最佳新人。

德国队在2014-18周期基本处于“吃老本”状态,闯入半决赛已算是圆满完成任务,锋线上仍需仰仗30岁的老将戈麦斯便是极好证明。正处在职业巅峰的博阿滕打出一届出色的比赛,但无法掩盖新人的发展不及预期。年仅24岁的格策灵光不再,委以重任的德拉克斯勒似乎在那届欧洲杯就触及了自己的生涯顶峰。不过,刚在拜仁打满一年的21岁新秀基米希从小组赛第三场起成功跻身主力,自此接过前辈拉姆在右路的旗帜。已经转会曼联的队长施魏因斯泰格大多数时候只是替补出战,他将在接下来的赛季被穆里尼奥打入冷宫。

比利时自02年世界杯后连续缺席五届大赛,十二年后终于迎来“黄金一代”,同一套主力班底磨练四年,终于在俄罗斯世界杯登上季军宝座。16年欧洲杯,队长孔帕尼因伤缺阵,在热刺首个赛季打满全勤的阿尔德弗雷尔德压阵后防。远赴狼堡历练两年的德布劳内于当赛季加盟曼城,率队首次打入欧冠四强。阿扎尔在切尔西经历了一个苦涩的赛季,穆里尼奥“二进宫”的第二年仅名列第十。同样与切尔西有关联的卢卡库已加盟埃弗顿第二个赛季,逐渐成长为英超顶锋。
