As Euro 2020 begins on June 11, 2021, some major players will have to watch it from home. The Figaro sports department has drawn eleven of the major absentees from the competition.
They would have been among the stars or major players of the competition. For various reasons, they will have to be content to watch it from home. Here is the typical team, arranged in 4-4-2, absent from Euro 2020.
