Virgil van Dijk and Eight Others Confirmed for Euro 2024

Euro 2024 gets underway in Munich on June 14, 2024, when hosts Germany face Scotland and the final 26-player squads for the tournament were in on June 7, 2024. Here’s a list of the total of nine players representing six countries from Liverpool.

Virgil Van Dijk (The Netherlands)

Virgil van Dijk, the Netherlands’ captain, leads a trio of Liverpool players in the national squad for Euro 2024. The Dutch team aims to redeem themselves after crashing out of Euro 2020 in the round of 16. In a crucial qualifier against Greece, Van Dijk scored a stoppage-time penalty, keeping their hopes alive.

The Netherlands faces a challenging group with France, Austria, and Poland, but with a mix of experience and young talent, they hope to progress beyond the quarter-finals—a feat they haven’t achieved in major finals since the 2014 World Cup.

Ryan Gravenberch (The Netherlands)

The 22-year-old midfielder has made a surprising return to the Dutch squad for Euro 2024. Despite being absent from international duty since last summer, Gravenberch’s inclusion is a notable development. His exile came after he turned down a call-up shortly after joining Liverpool.

However, injury woes for Marten de Roon opened the door for a comeback. As the Dutch team aims to win their first men’s European title since 1988, his performance will definitely be one to watch in the tournament.

Cody Gakpo (The Netherlands)

The 25-year-old forward earned his place in Ronald Koeman’s final selection after playing a crucial role for the Netherlands during Euro 2024 qualifying. In a match against Greece, Gakpo scored a goal by chesting down a Denzel Dumfries cross and smashing it home. This win was significant for the Dutch team, as it was only their second victory since the World Cup.

It will be interesting to see how Koeman will choose to create his attacking setup with Memphis Depay, Brian Brobbey, Donyell Malen, and Wout Weghorst also included in the squad.

Trent Alexander Arnold (England)

The 25-year-old right-back has secured a spot in England’s final squad for Euro 2024, and interestingly Gareth Southgate has chosen to play him as a midfielder along with the likes of Declan Rice, Cole Palmer, Jude Bellingham, Kobbie Mainoo and Conor Gallagher. With Arnold impressing a 3-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina by scoring a goal, his versatility and determination will make him a pivotal force in the team’s quest for silverware.

Joe Gomez (England)

The 25-year-old defender has made a triumphant return to the squad for Euro 2024 after a hiatus since 2020. Gomez’s consistent form and versatility earned him a spot in Southgate’s 26-man group. It will be interesting to see whether the manager will play Gomez as a left-back with Luke Shaw struggling with fitness.

He can also opt to switch Kieran Trippier to the other flank, but ultimately Southgate is loaded with an amazing squad depth and fans can’t wait to see how he chooses to set up his squad in this year’s European Championship.

Andy Robertson (Scotland)

Scotland’s captain, Andy Robertson has set his sights on making history at Euro 2024. Scotland, having qualified for a second consecutive European Championships, faces a tough group alongside hosts Germany, Hungary, and Switzerland. Following a disappointing performance in the Euro 2020 group stage, where the country’s only point came from a draw against England, Robertson believes that progressing to the knockout stages in Germany would be a significant achievement for Scotland.

He emphasizes their goal: to be the first Scotland team to achieve this feat. As the tournament begins, all eyes will be on Robertson and his team as they aim to carve out their own narrative and leave a lasting mark in the competition’s history.

Dominik Szoboszlai (Hungary)

The 23-year-old midfielder is a formidable force in Hungary’s squad. Known for his precise passing, dynamic movement, and scoring capability, Szoboszlai has already proven his worth in the qualifiers. His impressive performance secured Hungary’s qualification for Euro 2024, where they aim to make their mark after a 44-year absence from the competition. With Szoboszlai leading the charge, Hungary hopes for a successful campaign in Germany.

Diogo Jota (Portugal)

The 27-year-old forward is making his second appearance in the UEFA European Championship as part of Portugal’s squad for Euro 2024. His inclusion comes after an impressive performance during qualifying matches, including a 9-0 victory against Luxembourg. Portugal, placed in Group F, will face the Czech Republic, Turkiye, and Georgia in the opening stage of the tournament. Keep an eye on Jota’s contributions as he aims to help Portugal secure another European title.

Ibrahima Konate (France)

The 25-year-old defender has been a key player for France during Euro 2024 qualifiers. In a recent friendly match against Luxembourg, France secured a comfortable 3-0 victory. Konaté’s solid defensive performance contributed to the team’s success.

Although eyebrows were raised with the selection of Konate partnered with Bayern Munich player Dayot Upamecano over Arsenal’s William Saliba, Konate has proved his worth to Didier Deschamps who included him in his final 26-man squad. As the tournament progresses, his presence will be crucial in France’s pursuit of the European title.
