One of UEFA’s strongest warnings against the creation of a European Super League was a threat that players who take part in the project would no longer be eligible for international competitions like the Euros this summer.

Should UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin follow through with this threat, it could affect a total of 89 players, based on the current team selections for World Cup qualifiers, which are subject to change ahead of the Euros.

As it stands, this figure represents 16.12% of the 552 players due to participate in UEFA’s EURO 2020, which is meant to get underway in June this year, having been postponed last year due to Covid-19. EFE
