Many stars no longer appear in the candidacies of the best teams for Euro 2024

Date: June 25, 2024 Time: 12:11:15

The national teams have begun to publish their squads for Euro 2024. We already know the expanded candidacies of four major teams: France, England, Germany and the Netherlands. We are finding out who is called up for the tournament and which stars we will not see in the continental championship.

Goalkeepers: Alphonse Areola (West Ham), Mick Maignan (Milan), Brice Samba (Lance).

Defenders: Jules Kounde (Barcelona), Jonathan Kloss (Marseille), Benjamin Pavard (Inter), Ibrahima Konate (Liverpool), William Saliba (Arsenal), Deotchankul Yupamecano (Bayern), Theo Hernández (Milan), Ferland Mendy (Real Madrid).

Midfielders: Youssouf Fofana (Monaco), Adrien Rabiot (Juventus), Warren Zaire-Emery (PSG), Aurélien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga (both Real Madrid), Antoine Griezmann (Atlético de Madrid), N’Golo Kante (Al-Ittihad).

Forward: Bradley Barcola, Ousmane Dembélé, Randal Kolo Muani, Kylian Mbappé (all PSG), Kingsley Coman (Bayern), Olivier Giroud (Milan), Marcus Thuram (Inter).

The French team is the strongest in Europe (possibly in the world). Didier Deschamps could recruit two full teams, but there is a limit of 26 players. And who is missing, at first glance? Michael Olise (Crystal Palace), Malo Gusteau and Axel Disasi (both Chelsea), Jean-Clair Todibo (Nice), Matteo Guendouzi (Marseille), Moussa Diaby (Aston Villa) – all of them were not included in the request due to the greater competence. Everything is banal.

And who will win the Euro Cup?

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson (Crystal Palace), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal), James Trafford (Burnley).

Defenders: Jerrad Branthwaite (Everton), Lewis Dunk (Brighton), Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Jarell Quansah (all Liverpool), Mark Guehi (Crystal Palace), Ezri Konsa (Aston Villa), Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw (both Manchester United ), John Stones, Kyle Walker (both Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Newcastle).

Midfielders: Curtis Jones (Liverpool), Conor Gallagher, Cole Palmer (both Chelsea), Kobby Mainu (Manchester United), Declan Rice (Arsenal), Adam Wharton (Crystal Palace), Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid), James Maddison (Tottenham), Jack Grealish, Phil Foden (both Manchester City).

Forward: Jarrod Bowen (West Ham), Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace), Anthony Gordon (Newcastle), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Harry Kane (Bayern), Ivan Toney (Brentford), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa).

But here the situation is more interesting. It should be noted that so far Gareth Southgate’s list includes 33 players. And only 26 will make the final team, so seven more players will be excluded. But there are several stars that are no longer included in the application. For example, Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford will miss the first major tournament since Euro 2016. Gareth Southgate said the forward had not been called up due to the competition: “I think the other players in his position have had a better season , It’s as simple as that”.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson will miss the European Championship due to injury. “In Hendo’s case, the determining factor was the injury he suffered in the last training camp: he couldn’t get his fitness back,” Southgate said.

Defender Ben White clashes with the England coach. Southgate did not allow the Arsenal player to attend the 2022 World Cup, so he left the national team’s camp during the tournament. Also in Qatar, Ben had a conflict with coach Steve Holland, Gareth’s assistant. Furthermore, White did not play a single minute at Euro 2020. In March 2023, Ben rejected a call-up to the national team. Southgate said there is no conflict and there never was. And if the defender had wanted, he would have entered the squad. But White has a different opinion on this matter.

Due to the high competition, the following will not go to the Euro Cup: Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho, Harvey Elliott, Eric Dier, Fikayo Tomori, Ben Chilwell and Rico Lewis. Although a couple of years ago the first was the leader of the England team. However, now he is not even the main one at Chelsea.

Conflicts are a common story for the England team:

Goalkeepers: Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim), Manuel Neuer (Bayern), Alexander Nübel (Stuttgart), Marc-André ter Stegen (Barcelona).

Defenders: Waldemar Anton, Maximilian Mittelstaedt (both Stuttgart), Benjamin Henrichs, David Raum (both RB Leipzig), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern), Robin Koch (Eintracht Frankfurt), Antonio Rüdiger (Real Madrid), Nico Schlotterbeck (Borussia D), Jonathan Ta (Bayer Leverkusen).

Midfielders: Robert Andrich, Florian Wirtz (both Bayer Leverkusen), Chris Furich (Stuttgart), Pascal Gros (Brighton), Ilkay Gundogan (Barcelona), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Jamal Musiala, Aleksandar Pavlovich, Leroy Zane (all Bayern) .

Forward: Maximilian Bayer (Hoffenheim), Niklas Füllkrug (Borussia Dortmund), Kai Havertz (Arsenal), Thomas Müller (Bayern), Denise Undav (Stuttgart).

Julian Nagelsmann surprised by not calling up Mats Hummels, Julian Brandt and Leon Goretzka. “We had long negotiations and they are disappointed with my decision, but it is quite understandable. At the end of the day, as a head coach, I have to do it in the best interest of the team. The guys did everything they could to be in the lineup. I tried to explain why they didn’t take them. It is understandable that they are upset. I can’t say that there was a bad conversation between us, but, of course, in life there are more pleasant conversations,” explained the coach about the absence of Mats and León.

And Brandt lost the competition to Pascal Gross. Julian is a more creative player, susceptible to the influence of mood on the game. And Gros is a “robot” that will be useful to Nagelsmann in urgent tasks. The choice of coach probably has something to do with this.

Another curious thing is the absence of Niklas Sule. The reason is the footballer’s excess weight. Yes, even blouses are susceptible to this! In one of Borussia Dortmund’s last training sessions, photographers photographed Süle much fatter. Niklas has been fighting excess weight throughout his career, which now exceeds 105 kg. With such a belly it is difficult to fight for victory in the Euro Cup.

From 2027, Germany will lose one of the inseparable attributes of the national team:

Goalkeepers: Bart Verbruggen (Brighton), Mark Flekken (Brentford), Justin Baylo (Feyenoord), Nick Olay (Sparta).

Defenders: Nathan Ake (Manchester City), Matthijs de Ligt (Bayern), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Stefan de Vrij (Inter), Mickey van de Ven (Tottenham), Jeremy Frimpong (Bayer”), Denzel Dumfries (Inter), Jan Matsen (Borussia D), Daley Blind (Girona), Lutsharel Gertreida (Feyenoord).

Midfielders: Jorginho Wijnaldum (Al-Ittifaq), Maarten de Rhone (Atalanta), Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Xavi Simons (RB Leipzig), Yerdi Schouten, Yoei Werman (both PSV), Teyani Reynders (Milan), Theon Kopmijners (Atalanta ), Quinten Timber (Feyenoord), Ryan Gravenberch (Liverpool).

Forward: Wout Weghorst (Hoffenheim), Memphis Depay (Atlético de Madrid), Brian Brobbey, Steven Bergwijn (both Ajax), Cody Gakpo (Liverpool), Donyell Malen (Borussia Dortmund).

Coach Ronald Koeman will release 4 of the 30 players before the Euro Cup. But all the possible major stars are in place. Although several good players could be included in the lineup. Manchester United defender Tyrell Malaysia suffered a knee injury in the summer of 2023 and underwent two operations. The left back completely missed the 2023/2024 season. Jurrien Timber has a similar story. Arsenal bought the central defender from Ajax in the summer of 2023 for 40 million euros and Timber tore his cruciate ligaments in the English Super Cup match against Manchester City, after which he spent eight months in treatment. Jurrien first appeared on the field in the matchday 38 of the Premier League against Everton. But this is not enough to qualify for the Euro Cup. But his twin brother Quinten was called up for the national team.

Holland still has a squad of “old guys” who were not called up due to losing the competition. These are midfielders Steven Berghuis (32 years old), Davi Klassen (31) and forward Luc de Jong (33). Although the latter scored 29 goals in 34 games in the Dutch championship with PSV. Koeman could have invited him to the Euro Cup!

We are following the announcement of all applications for Euro 2024:
