Stars not selected for Euro 2020

The deadline for National Team Head Coaches to submit their Euro 2020 squads was 1 June 2021, 23:59.

This caused headlines with some big names left out of squads of multiple nations for various reasons.

So, here is an XI of the best players who will not be at Euro 2020, despite the fact their international teammates will be.

Goalkeeper: Marc-André ter Stegen- Germany

He may not boast much of an international career but Marc-André ter Stegen is, undoubtedly, one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Since joining Barcelona from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2014, ter Stegen has made 278 appearances for the Catalan giants, winning 13 major honours.

This includes the UEFA Champions League in 2015 and a fifth Copa del Rey earlier this year.

However, the 29-year-old has only won 25 caps for Germany since making his debut in May 2012.

Ter Stegen’s biggest achievement with Die Mannschaft came in 2017 when they won the Confederations Cup with him starting four of the five games, including the semi-final and final.

Overall, he’s played in just 11 competitive internationals.

At the end of the club season, ter Stegen confirmed he would miss Euro 2020 due to the fact he had to undergo a procedure on his knee.

This wasn’t too much of a blow for Joachim Löw’s side as Manuel Neuer will remain as first-choice with Bernd Leno and Kevin Trapp as his understudies.
