Chelsea and Manchester City have the most number of players left in Euro followed by another English giant…
Euro 2020 has reached its business end as four (Denmark, England, Italy and Spain) out of the 24 teams have reached the semifinals and are vying to win the ultimate prize.
The tournament has seen strong teams get knocked out prematurely. Defending champions Portugal and reigning world champions France were eliminated by Belgium and Switzerland respectively from the Round of 16 while Netherlands were dumped out by Czech Republic.
Premier League champions Manchester City and UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea have the most number of players left in the tournament (seven) followed by another fellow English club Manchester United and Serie A giants Juventus who have five players left.
Among the other English clubs, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur still have two players each while Arsenal only have one left in Bukayo Saka.
Among the giants of Europe, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are the only clubs that do not have any players left in Euro 2020.
It must be noted that Jadon Sancho was a Borussia Dortmund player at the beginning of the tournament but midway into the competition his transfer to Manchester United was confirmed so in the list below, Sancho has been considered as a Man United player.
