The 2020 European Championship which was earlier scheduled in 2020 is now going to take place in the summer of 2021, due to the unprecedented onset of the coronavirus pandemic. The authorities are fully prepared to timely organize the event in 2021.
Recently the top-performing countries qualified for the upcoming championship were announced sealing their place in the tournament. However, some countries failed to grab their place in the qualifying round and therefore this time we will miss some of the top players playing in the major Euro 2020 event.
Here we have the top 5 most valuable players who will miss out on the Euro 2020 championship
5. Martin Odegaard (Norway/ Real Madrid) – € 45m
Young and dynamic Footballer Martin Odegaard from Haaland is the fifth player to not participate in the upcoming Euro 2020 championship. He has contributed to various clubs for the past 3 years, showing brilliant performance for Real Sociedad in the last season, and is expected to continue with the same form at the Bernabeu.
Bosnia and Herzegovina failed to qualify for the tournament and thus Miralem Pjanic one of the most creative players in football today has to miss the event. In the recent matches, Miralem has not been able to perform at his best and his nonparticipation will give time to rediscover and analyze his form.
Over the past couple of years, Sergej Milinkov has delivered outstanding performance for Lazio as a complete midfielder. He is well known for his unique style of play acclaimed as a mix of Zinedine Zidane and Yaya Toure. This time as his team is not a part of the Euro 2020 championship, Sergej will have to put extra effort into his club.
Another talented and best striker in the world Erling Haaland will not play in the 2020 Euro championship. It will be a disheartening moment for Erling’s fans to enjoy the 20-year-old display of his abilities on the international stage. However, Erling still has much time to make a comeback and showcase his talent in the upcoming tournaments.
The star goalkeeper of the world, Jan Oblak from Slovenia will not participate in the 2020 Euro championship after his team failed to qualify for the tournament. His absence in the tournament will be felt by the fans. Atletico Madrid welcomes the news of Jan not playing in the tournament which also ensures that he would get much time to practice.
