The UEFA Euro 2020 will take place from June 13 after the end of a gruelling domestic football season. The COVID-19 related delay to the 2019-20 season saw the gap between seasons reduced considerably. As such, players will be going into the tournament suffering from at least a certain degree of fatigue. That’s not even counting the players who won’t be boarding the flights to their national team camps. The knock-on effect of a cramped schedule this season is the unavailability of a number of key players for certain sides. As such, this year’s tournament is set to be much less star-studded.
But it isn’t just injuries that have led to stars missing out. Some have seen a nose dive in form, while others have done well but don’t find themselves in the scheme of things.
