25 brilliant players who won’t be playing at Euro 2024

Euro 2024 is peering over the horizon and the deadline has now passed for the competing nations to submit their final squads.

As such, we now know definitively which stars will be gracing Germany this summer and who won’t be.

Here are 25 of the best players who won’t feature at Euro 2024, whether that’s due to injury, lack of selection or their country not qualifying. And to make it spicier, the order is completely randomised.

James’ availability tends to be a concern / Copa/GettyImages

Who put the ball in the back of the net? / Richard Heathcote/GettyImages

No place for Hummels / Richard Sellers/Allstar/GettyImages

It’s a no for Guerreiro / Marcel Engelbrecht – firo sportphoto/GettyImages

Usually a Portugal stalwart, Raphael Guerreiro’s injury-hit first season at Bayern Munich has seen him overlooked for the Selecao’s squad for Euro 2024.

Courtois’ complicated season is over / Jonathan Moscrop/GettyImages

Grealish’s omission came as a shock / Richard Sellers/Allstar/GettyImages

Jack Grealish is a beloved part of the England setup and news of his axing was not well-received by his teammates, but ultimately his poor form for Manchester City cost him a spot at Euro 2024.

It’s rotten luck tearing your ACL only 50 minutes into the new season, but at least Jurrien Timber is on the mend again. The Netherlands could miss his useful versatility over in Germany.

Udogie has impressed for Tottenham / Julian Finney/GettyImages

Legend says he drank the vodka AND the jager / Visionhaus/GettyImages

No Euros for you / Catherine Steenkeste/GettyImages

It’s a minor miracle that Lucas Hernandez has even featured at three international tournaments with France given his woeful injury record over the years.

Gavi remains sidelined for the foreseeable future / Juan Manuel Serrano Arce/GettyImages

It was bad enough for Courtois that he had to endure ACL and meniscus tears back-to-back. Poor Gavi suffered them at the same time while on Spain duty last November and isn’t due back until January 2025.

Gnabry’s Bayern future is also uncertain / Diego Souto/GettyImages

Another player disrupted by injury, Serge Gnabry has been in and out of both the Bayern Munich and Germany teams for years now.

Cubarsi’s stock is rising / Fran Santiago/GettyImages

Alaba will still head to Germany / Christian Hofer/GettyImages

Sancho remains out in the cold from the England setup / Jonathan Moscrop/GettyImages

Considering Jadon Sancho hasn’t been in an England squad since 2021, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that even his late-season exploits for Dortmund weren’t enough for him to break back into Southgate’s thinking.

Captain, leader, legend / Jürgen Fromme – firo sportphoto/GettyImages

Maatsen was cut by the Netherlands / Marvin Ibo Guengoer – GES Sportfoto/GettyImages

Goretzka was never favoured by Nagelsmann / Matthias Hangst/GettyImages

Tonali remains suspended / Richard Sellers/Allstar/GettyImages

White has withdrawn himself from England contention / Marc Atkins/GettyImages

England could really do with Ben White’s competence and versatility. It’s a great shame he and the coaching staff are at odds.
