Watch: The Panel's England Reaction & Euro 2024 Predictions With McInally & Cole

Former England forward Carlton Cole believes the Three Lions have a great chance to go all the way in Euro 2024 after beating Serbia 1-0 in their opener. 

Jude Bellingham scored the only goal of the game, with Harry Kane having one of his quietest matches for his country in recent times. 

Football betting sites had England as overwhelming favourites to win on Sunday night, but they ended up having to hold on to score a victory and that has left more questions than answers about the hopes of the Three Lions at the tournament.

Cole is backing the England skipper to come good though, and he has tipped the 2020 runners-up to make it two wins from two against Denmark in their second Group C game.

The former West Ham and Chelsea striker joined our gracious host Alan McInally on The Panel this week, and they wasted no time getting stuck into all the issues surrounding Gareth Southgate's men. Check out their fascinating chat and Cole's outright tips for tournament below: 

Carlton Cole's Predictions For Euro 2024

"You can't bet against (Harry) Kane being England's top goal scorer (in this tournament). Denmark will pose a threat, but they will see the Slovenia game as a couple of points lost.

"England will go into the Denmark game confident and I'm going for a convincing 3-1 for England. I think we'll still leak a goal and 3-1 seems a fair bet for me."

Betting apps are offering odds of 16.0 for England to win 3-1 if you fancy Cole to be right. 

Cole can see England going far in this tournament, and believes France and Germany are their biggest threats. 

Elsewhere in the tournament, Cole is tipping Kylian Mbappe to win the Golden Boot award and believes Toni Kroos can have a story book ending to his glittering career.

"I want to see how Mbappe does," Cole told McInally. 

"He scores hat-tricks in finals and I'm tipping him to score the goals France need to go deep in this tournament. 

"Mbappe could also be the player of the tournament, but I just think it's written for Germany to get to the final.

"I'm all about fairytales, and with Toni Kroos signing off with the Euros I think they'll give it to him."

Carlton Cole's Tips:

England's Leading Scorer: Harry Kane
Young Player of the Tournament: Lamine Yamal
Player Of The Tournament: Toni Kroos
Score Prediction: Denmark 1-3 England
Tournament Winners: England
