The Criteria to get in

  • Only players who have been omitted through manager selection
  • Only players whose nation have qualified
  • No players who are omitted through injury, self-exclusion or retirement qualify will feature

For example, Jamie Vardy won't feature because he has retired for England, Erling Haaland won't because Norway never qualified and Marco Reus won't feature because he omitted himself.

Goalkeeper: Illan Meslier

There are a few keepers not heading to Euro 2020 because of manager omission, such as Roman Burki and Kepa Arrizabalaga, however, the two of them have barely featured for the clubs, so it's tough to throw them in.

For this reason, we've gone with Leeds United's shot-stopper, Illan Meslier, who wasn’t selected for Euro 2020 after an excellent debut season in the Premier League. The young Frenchman impressed throughout the season for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, but this was not enough for Didier Deschamps' side, who, in fairness, are quite stacked in the goalkeeping department.

Defender: Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has struggled to break into the England team under Gareth Southgate due to England’s depth in his position at right-back. His defensive qualities in one on one situation might have served England well against world-class opposition, however, his lack of selection may force him to represent his DR Congo, who he played for at U20 level.

Wan-Bissaka is one of the best around defensive, but going forward is why Southgate hasn't picked him.

Defender: Dayot Upamecano

Dayot Upamecano secured a move to Bayern Munich for next season and would have hoped to be part of the French squad going into Euro 2020. The centre-back is highly regarded as one of the brightest talents in world football with Bayern set to have him in central defence for many future seasons.

France's squad depth in defence sees Upamecano as a casualty in Deschamps’ selection, nevertheless, there is no doubt he will play a role in the future.

defender: Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos is Spain's captain, Spain's most capped player by some distance (180 caps), and the country's top scorer of active players for their national team. In fact, Ramos might just be the best defender of this generation and he remains one of Europe's most desired talents as he reportedly looks set to leave Real Madrid.

Leaving him out of the squad might just be the worst decision ever made in Spanish international football, and it hasn't gone down well over in Spain at all.

Defender: Angelino

RB Leipzig left-back Angelino contributed to 19 goals last season for the German side and has developed into one of Europe's best attacking full-backs.

This was impressive for the Spaniard who failed to make the grade as Manchester City, however, he was unable to force his way ahead of the experienced Jordi Alba and Valencia left-back, Jose Gaya.

Midfielder: Eduardo Camavinga

18-year-old French midfielder, Eduardo Camavninga, received his first caps for the senior team last season after a swift rise to being recognised as one of the brightest talents in world football. The midfielder was unable to break his way into Euro selection for the senior squad and instead represented his country at U21 level alongside the aforementioned Illan Meslier and Dayot Upamecano.

Similarly to those two, Camavinga will be a French star of the future, despite being a star of the present for Rennes. This summer absence also allows him to focus on a reported move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The likes of Isco and Marco Asensio could have been included here, but they have had seriously underwhelming seasons.

Midfielder: Houssem Aouar

Houssem Aouar has been linked with a move to one of Europe’s top sides over the last few years and the Lyon midfielder remains one of the most wanted players from Ligue 1.

The Frenchman’s play style has been compared to that of Andres Iniesta, putting him in high regard amongst those in his position and it seems he was on the verge of Deschamps plans, however, he was also amongst those selected for the U21 instead.

Midfielder: James Ward-Prowse

James Ward-Prowse was unjustly not part of the England squad according to much of the public opinion, as he was omitted from the squad the day after an excellent display of how to properly take a set-piece for the Three Lions.

His set-pieces alone made most England supporters regard him as more than adequate for international selection, especially after the injury to Trent Alexander-Arnold and how Jack Grealish wins countless fouls every game.

The midfielder has impressed for Southampton consistently and could have played a vital role in midfield where most consider England to be lacking compared to other teams. Ultimately, given England's style of play and how they scored six goals from corners at the World Cup, Ward-Prowse's omission doesn't really make much sense.

Midfielder: Saul Niguez

Saul Niguez has been an important player for Atletico Madrid in recent seasons and will feel hard done by after being left out of Luis Enrique’s selection and he is arguably the best player on this list, especially considering he has just won La Liga. The box to box midfielder has received 20 Spanish caps in his career and looked forward to adding to this number at this year’s competition.

Forward: Steven Bergwijn

Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn has represented the Netherlands 12 times at senior level and would have been a useful option in Frank de Boer’s squad.

However, the Dutchman has struggled to cement a starting place at Spurs since his move from PSV Eindhoven and his lack of form has hindered him on the international stage and in truth, it's going to take something excellent to get him back in.

Forward: Danny Ings

England striker Danny Ings has been Southampton's key man in recent seasons at St. Mary’s and was once again the main factor in how they avoided the drop this season.

The Saints forward has scored 34 goals in the past two seasons, however, an injury setback in the past season derailed his chances to be selected in Gareth Southgate’s lineup. However, considering he has 34 goals across two injury-ridden seasons, this in itself proves his worth.
