Euro 2016: Who’s a booking away from suspension?

Date published: Thursday 30th June 2016 10:47

Italy have 11 players walking a disciplinary tightrope when they face Germany in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals, while a Wales quartet may have to watch their step.

With the Euro 2016 quarter-finals upon us, 45 players know they are only one mistimed tackle or act of petulance away from sitting out the semi-finals, should their nation reach the final four.

Thomas Vermaelen (Belgium), N’Golo Kante, Adil Rami (both France) and Thiago Motta (Italy) have already collected a couple of cautions and will miss their quarter-final matches.

After this round, however, the slates are wiped clean as UEFA will not carry forward single cautions into the semi-finals.

These are the players who are one booking away from a suspension:

Poland v Portugal

Poland: Kamil Grosicki, Krzysztof Maczynski, Sławomir Peszko, Lukasz Piszczek, Michal Pazdan, Artur Jedrzejczyk
