Euro 2020 has reached its business end as four (Denmark, England, Italy and Spain) of the 24 teams have reached the semi-finals and are fighting to win the eventual prize.
In the tournament, strong teams are knocked out prematurely. Defending champions Portugal and current world champions France were eliminated from the Round of 16 by Belgium and Switzerland, respectively, while the Netherlands were thrown away by the Czech Republic.
Premier League champions Manchester City and UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea have the most players left in the tournament (seven), followed by another English fellow club Manchester United and Juventus from Serie A who have five players left.
Among the other English clubs, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have two more players each, while Arsenal have only one left in Bukayo Saka.
Among the giants of Europe, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are the only clubs that still have no players left in Euro 2020.
It should be noted that Jadon Sancho was a Borussia Dortmund player at the start of the tournament, but halfway through the competition his transfer to Manchester United was confirmed. Sancho is considered a Man United player in the list below.
