Every Euro 2024 squad: Belgium omit Real star; five countries yet to come

Matt Stead
England player Jude Bellingham, France forward Kylian Mbappe, and Czechia, Scotland and Austria players
Who should we expect to rock up at Euro 2024?

Euro 2024 starts with hosts Germany facing Scotland on June 14, but England, France and the rest face a deadline of June 7 to name their tournament squads.

All 24 competing nations will once again be permitted to name 26-man squads for the summer after confirmation from UEFA following pressure from numerous international managers and executives.

Some countries have made it clear when their provisional squad will be named but the deadline for final squad submission to UEFA is June 7, a week before the tournament begins.

But who can expect to be on the plane, train, coach, group walk or other alternative means of travel? Some countries have started to name at least preliminary squads and of the rest, we have taken a look at their most recent selections and tried to fill in the blanks where necessary.

 

Group A (Germany, Hungary, Scotland, Switzerland)

Who is in the Germany squad for Euro 2024?

Preliminary 27-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Oliver Baumann (Hoffenheim), Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) and Alexander Nubel (Stuttgart).

Defenders: Antonio Rudiger (Real Madrid), David Raum (Leipzig), Nico Schlotterbeck (Borussia Dortmund), Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Robin Koch (Eintracht Frankfurt), Waldemar Anton (Stuttgart), Maximilian Mittelstadt (Stuttgart), Benjamin Henrichs (Leipzig).

Midfielders: Pascal Gross (Brighton), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Jamal Musiala (Bayern Munich), Chris Fuhrich (Stuttgart), Florian Wirtz (Bayer Leverkusen), Ilkay Gundogan (Barcelona), Robert Andrich (Bayer Leverkusen), Aleksandar Pavlovic (Bayern Munich), Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich)

Forwards: Kai Havertz (Arsenal), Niclas Fullkrug (Borussia Dortmund), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Maximilian Beier (Hoffenheim), Deniz Undav (Stuttgart).

At least one more player will have to drop out of the final squad, with Mats Hummels, Leon Goretzka, Julian Brandt, Karim Adeyemi, Niklas Sule, Timo Werner and Serge Gnabry already omitted.

“I had long conversations with both of them,” manager Julian Nagelsmann said of Hummels and Goretzka in particular. “They’re very disappointed, that’s understandable. You would like to take everyone with you.

“They did everything to be there. I tried to explain why they weren’t included. It’s understandable that they are sad. They weren’t bad conversations, but of course there are more pleasant conversations in life.”

World ranking: 16th

Manager: Julian Nagelsmann

Balazs Toth (Fehervar), Krisztian Lisztes (Ferencvaros), Attila Mocsi (Caykur Rizespor), Zalan Vancsa (Lommel) and Balint Vecsei (Paksi) have been named as back-ups in case of injury.

“I have to say that after a long time – including key players – everyone can be called up,” said manager Marco Rossi. “There are two question marks, Fiola and Lang, but of course we are in contact with them. Our medical staff have also consulted them, thus it looks like they can join us.”

World ranking: 26th

Manager: Marco Rossi

Last major tournament finish: Knocked out in Euro 2020 group stage

 

Who is in the Scotland squad for Euro 2024?

Preliminary 28-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Angus Gunn (Norwich), Liam Kelly (Motherwell), Zander Clark (Hearts), Craig Gordon (Hearts)

Defenders: Anthony Ralston (Celtic), Andy Robertson (Liverpool), Liam Cooper (Leeds), Scott McKenna (Copenhagen), Kieran Tierney (Real Sociedad), Jack Hendry (Al-Ettifaq), Grant Hanley (Norwich City), Ryan Porteous (Watford), John Souttar (Rangers), Greg Taylor (Celtic), Ross McRorie (Bristol City).

World ranking: 39th

Manager: Steve Clarke

Manager Murat Yakin explained that some younger players have been named in a large preliminary squad – seven of those initially called up have never been capped and five more have only appeared twice at most for the national team – to account for those who are unable to join up with the training camp yet due to club commitments.

World ranking: 19th

Manager: Murat Yakin

Last major tournament finish: Beaten 6-1 by Portugal in World Cup 2022 round of 16

Last squad – named for March friendlies against Chile (3-0 defeat) and Sweden (1-0 defeat):

Alen Sherri (Egnatia), Elhan Kastrati (Cittadella), Thomas Strakosha (Brentford), Ivan Balliu (Rayo Vallecano), Mario Mitaj (Lokomotiv Moscow), Elseid Hysaj (Lazio), Frederic Veseli (Fatih Karagumruk), Berat Gjimshiti (Atalanta), Enea Mihaj (Famalicao), Jon Mersinaj (Lokomotiva), Marash Kumbulla (Sassuolo), Naser Aliji (Voluntari), Keidi Bare (Espanyol), Nedim Bajrami (Sassuolo), Qazim Laci (Sparta Prague), Yiber Ramadani (Lecce), Kristjan Asllani (Inter), Rey Manaj (Sivasspor), Jasir Asani (Gwangju), Taulant Seferi (Baniyas), Sokol Cikalleshi (Konyaspor), Enrest Muci (Besiktas), Arbnor Mucolli (Goteborg), Armando Broja (Fulham), Arber Hoxha (Dinamo Zagreb).

Etrit Berisham (Empoli), the 80-cap goalkeeper, has not featured at club level since December due to a loss of form and then injury, while Myrto Uzuni (Granada) has 11 goals in La Liga this season and dropped out of the March squad so should expect a recall.

World ranking: 66th

Manager: Sylvinho

Last major tournament finish: Knocked out in Euro 2016 group stage

 

Who is in the Croatia squad for Euro 2024?

Preliminary 26-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Dominik Livakovic (Fenerbahce), Nediljko Labrovic (Rijeka), Ivica Ivusic (Pafos).

World ranking: 10th

Manager: Zlatko Dalic

Last major tournament finish: Third place in World Cup 2022, knocked out by Argentina in the semi-final

 

Who is in the Italy squad for Euro 2024?

Preliminary 30-man squad: Gianluigi Donnarumma (Paris Saint-Germain), Guglielmo Vicario (Spurs), Alex Meret (Napoli), Ivan Provedel (Lazio).

Defenders: Francesco Acerbi (Inter), Giovanni Di Lorenzo (Napoli), Federico Dimarco (Inter), Alessandro Buongiorno (Torino), Riccardo Calafiori (Bologna), Matteo Darmian (Inter), Giorgio Scalvini (Atalanta), Gianluca Mancini (Roma), Alessandro Bastoni (Inter), Andrea Cambiaso (Juventus), Raoul Bellanova (Torino).

Only 10 of Roberto Mancini’s champions from Euro 2020 will defend Italy’s crown in Germany, with Luciano Spalletti controversially included Nicolo Fagioli despite the midfielder playing just two games since his return from a betting ban.

The struggle to find a reliable goalscoring striker continues, with Scamacca favoured over Ciro Immobile even though the former was dropped for the March squads.

World ranking: 9th

Manager: Luciano Spalletti

Last major tournament finish: Euro 2020 winners

 

Who is in the Spain squad for Euro 2024?

“We have very competitive forwards. Regarding Ayoze Perez, I think it is time to give him this opportunity,” manager Luis de la Fuente said of the former Newcastle attacker, who can reminisce over happier times at St James’ Park with Joselu.

World ranking: 8th

The Jordan Henderson omission was surprising, along with Marcus Rashford missing out. Gareth Southgate said of the latter that “other players in that area have had better seasons”, while Henderson was lacking “intensity” after an injury. We have 16 Conclusions on that squad.

World ranking: 4th

Manager: Gareth Southgate

Last major tournament finish: Beaten 2-1 by France in World Cup 2022 quarter-finals

Forwards: Aleksandar Mitrovic (Al-Hilal), Dusan Vlahovic (Juventus), Luka Jovic (AC Milan), Petar Ratkov (RB Salzburg)

Perhaps the most surprising of the omissions – even before the final cut to 26 players – were those of Marko Grujic (Porto) and Erhan Masovic (Bochum). Serbia open their first European Championships as an independent nation against England in Gelsenkirchen on June 16.

World ranking: 33rd

Who is in the Slovenia squad for Euro 2024?

Goalkeepers: Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid), Vid Belec (APOEL), Igor Vekic (Vejle), Matevz Vidovsek (Olimpija Ljubljana).

Defenders: Zan Karnicnik (Celje), Jure Balkovec (Alanyaspor), Miha Blazic (Lech Poznan), Jaka Bijol (Udinese), Erik Janza (Gornik Zabrze), Petar Stojanovic (Sampdoria), Vanja Drkusic (Sochi), David Brekalo (Orlando City), Zan Zaletel (Viborg).

Forwards: Josip Ilicic (Maribor), Andraz Sporar (Panathinaikos), Benjamin Sesko (Leipzig), Luka Zahovic (Pogon Szczecin), Jan Mlakar (Pisa), Zan Vipotnik (Bordeaux), Zan Celar (Lugano).

No-one expected the call for Ilicic, whose last Slovenia cap came in November 2021. The 36-year-old has endured mental health struggles in recent years and left Atalanta by mutual consent in summer 2022, eventually landing at former club Maribor. Things have not been smooth for Ilicic ever since but a particularly glorious end to the season – three goals and seven assists from March onwards – has stirred his country.

“Over the last weeks I’ve have had close exchanges with David,” manager Ralf Rangnick said of the injured Alaba, who will travel as a “non-playing captain”. Alexander and Xaver Schlager are both sidelined, too.

Rangnick, who also named a 12-strong stand-by list, added: “We have chosen the players with whom we believe we can bring the best football onto the pitch. We have added one or two more because we have to see how injuries that have occurred recently develop.”

World ranking: 25th

“He played a full season, albeit not in a European league, as he is in Saudi Arabia,” manager Didier Deschamps said of surprise recall Kante, who has not featured for Les Bleus since June 2022.

“He’s back to full fitness. With his experience, I’m convinced that the French team will be stronger with N’Golo Kante.”

Among the standout omissions are Michael Olise, Jean-Clair Todibo, Malo Gusto, Matteo Guendouzi, Christopher Nkunku and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

World ranking: 2nd

Manager: Didier Deschamps

There was no room for Cristian Manea or Vlad Chiriches.
