The European Championship was postponed due to COVID-19 and the footballers had to put up with the desire to represent their country. This year, they finally had a chance to do it. Some in better shape, some in worse …
Next, we review five players who disappointed at Euro 2020:
The 21-year-old forward played only one game with the Portugal selection in this edition. He started as a substitute, suffered an injury, returned to the bench and then added only a handful of minutes (34 ‘) in the round of 16. The label is still a promise, until when?
That of Manchester United, who was under the magnifying glass of the followers of the Spanish National Team, did not add minutes in the competition. Luis Enrique did not hesitate: he gave the bow to Unai Simón.
When the tournament was expected to show off in the England national team, Saka overshadowed him and sent him to warm up the substitute bench. Sancho, one of the most coveted footballers in the world, played a starting game (Quarterfinals v. Ukraine) in this competition. DT Soutghate’s pulse trembled a little to leave him out.
In the first Eurocup he played, Mbappé did not enjoy a bit with the France selection: was out in the round of 16 against Switzerland and did not score any goals. Did rumors about your future play a trick on you?
The emblematic forward of Bayern Munich and the German National Team played 4/4 possible matches in the tournament and he did not convert or attend. His low level was felt: the Germans out in the round of 16.
