Liverpool stars set to light up Euros

Euro 2024, along with the Paris Olympics, will be one of the highlights of the sporting summer. And Liverpool fans have much to be excited about with plenty of the Reds’ squad gracing the tournament in Germany. England are among the favourites with the football betting sites, and as ever will feature plenty of Anfield talent.


But France, Spain, hosts Germany and Portugal all look strong too, with some of those sides also boasting Liverpool players.


Here we take a look at some of the Reds players who look set to feature and possibly even star in what will be the 17th edition of the European Football Championships Finals.




Reds fans are well used to seeing the national team stocked up on familiar talent, but this particular England squad is perhaps a little lighter than previous versions. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and young talents Curtis Jones and Jarrel Quansah all made the provisional 33-man list, but Quansah and Jones didn't make the cut and Gomez is not likely to see much action. Keep an eye on Trent potentially coming into midfield, though.




Scotland are another country that has historically provided plenty of talent for the Reds – Graeme Souness, Alan Hansen and Steve Nicol all spring to mind. This time around, Andrew Robertson will be a key member of the travelling Scottish party, while up and coming whizz kid Ben Doak might have had a chance to shine but for injury that caused him to drop out just before the final squad was announced. 


The Netherlands


There has been a strong Dutch flavour at Anfield in recent times, and Reds skipper Virgil van Dijk will also skipper his country at the finals. Ryan Gravenberch and Cody Gakpo will also likely play starring roles for the Oranje, while former Reds favourite Georginio Wijnaldum has also been included in the squad.




Ibrahima Konate has been included in a strong looking French squad for the Euros, picked alongside plenty of other defensive talent in the shape of Dayot Upemecano, Joules Kounde, Axel Disasi and Theo Hernandez, to name but a few. We can expect to spot the big defender for at least some minutes, whether it be as a starter or a replacement.




Dominik Szoboszlai slotted well into the Reds midfield after his big money arrival from Red Bull Leipzig last summer, and we can expect the midfielder to spearhead his country’s charge at Euro 2024. Hungary have been placed in a tough group, though, featuring host Germany, so the Liverpool man will need to be on top form.




Diogo Jota has unsurprisingly been named in a strong-looking Portugal squad for the trip to Germany. As well as the quality of Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Vitinha, coach Roberto Martinez has the star power of Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafeal Leao, Goncalo Ramos and Joao Felix up front, so Jota has his hands full breaking into the first eleven for Portugal’s big games here. Expect the Reds striker to feature heavily, though, be it from the start of off the bench.


Who’s missing out?


Despite a strong season, midfielder Harvey Elliot has yet to catch Gareth Southgate’s eye. The player can count himself rather unfortunate, especially after impressing towards the end of the season. Conor Bradley was a breakout star for Jurgen Klopp during the 2023/24 campaign, but his Northern Ireland side failed to progress to the play-offs, likewise Caoimhin Kelleher’s Ireland. Kostas Tsimikas’ Greece lost out to Georgia in the Path C playoff final, while Thiago was not selected by Spain after missing almost the entire season through injury.


When and where are the Euros


Euro 2024 kicks off in Munich on 14th June with Andrew Robertson’s Scotland facing off against hosts Germany. 24 teams will navigate six groups to get to the Round of 16, with the final taking place in Berlin on 14th July.


Euro 2024 Groups


Group A






Group B






Group C






Group D






Group E






Group F






Both Group A and Group D should see interesting match-ups between Liverpool teammates. In Group A, defender Robertson could well have his hands full with club colleague Szoboszlai, while in Group D Konate could well be facing off against the familiar face of Cody Gakpo. It all adds an element of intrigue to what should be a thrilling tournament, and definitely one for all Reds fans to keep a close eye on this summer.
