    Default european/Europe's

    He's the Europe's best.

    OR

    He's the european best.
    ----------------------


    Which one is correct?

    I don't want to use these forms (Btw. I don't know if these are correct. Please, tell me if they don't.):

    He's the best in Europe.
    He's the best of Europe.
    He's the best from Europe.

    Thank you in advance.

    He's the best in Europe.
    He's the best of Europe. Not wrong, but not idiomatic.
    He's the best from Europe. Not wrong but not idiomatic.

    I have two additonal questions. Which one of these two sentences below is correct?

    He's Europes best.

    VS

    He's Europe's best



    What do you consider as more native in casual conversation?

    This sentence:

    He's Europes best.(He's Europe's best)

    OR

    This sentence:He's the european best.

    Of the two, the first would probably be most commonly said. However, I think "He's the best in Europe", would be even more common.
