Euro 2020 Squads: What We Know So Far

With the hotly anticipated UEFA champions league 2021 coming up in just a few days (after being delayed for a year due to the global pandemic), we perhaps thought it would be apropos to check out what we know so far about each of the squads that are about to perform on the international stage.

As far as we know, the european champions league squads have now been finalised thus far — due to the UEFA’s strict rules about locking in the final squad roster before 1st June, barring serious injury or illness. And this tournament will be definitely one of the most exciting football tourneys to sweep the world in recent memory as it is likely the opening salvo indicating that the (football) world is slowly returning to its status quo pre-pandemic.

With big-time European players like most recent champs Portugal, along with France, Spain, Belgium, Germany, and England, you can be sure that the Euros is a massive spectacle not to be missed. Moreover, dark horses in the tournament are ever-present to give the aforementioned favourites a run for their money. Think Italy, Norway, Denmark, and Wales, while first-timers such as Finland and North Macedonia will certainly inject fresh action and plenty of intrigue to the competition.  

From young, yet accomplished upstart Kylian Mbappé to the always exciting Cristiano Ronaldo, you’ll find plenty of star power at the UEFA European Championships this year.
