England manager Gareth Southgate did not include any Leicester City players, and with no Scottish players in the Leicester City squad at the moment, there were of course no one in that mix, but there are other players to follow as we are closing in on those fantastic games coming up.Embed from Getty Images
For fans not really annoyed by the sale of Ben Chilwell and Harry Maguire they are two former foxes in the Euro’s and among players in the England squad, probably and of course the team to follow for most Leicester City fans.
For us over the sea, not really in it at all, coming from Norway, we have to look at our neighbours Finland, Sweden and Denmark that are all in, and will play their games with Kasper Schmeichel being a player to follow, being a certainty in their team.
Cengiz Under, voted Turkish player of the year 2018, and scoring in Turkey’s latest game v. Moldova, will most certainly be included together with Caglar Soyuncu, both players that represented Leicester City last season. Under is at the moment on 29 caps and 9 goals for his country, Soyuncu has 35 caps to his name and also an important player for Turkey.Embed from Getty Images
Belgium does have a number of foxes in there with Timothy Castagne, Dennis Praet and Youri Tielemans are all ready for the Euro’s. Praet and Tielemans were both involved in their latest game v. Greece (1-1), Castagne never entered the field.
Danny Ward is number two at Leicester City, but for Wales he is looks as the first choice playing against France in their 3-0 defeat on the 3rd of June, but was dropped to the bench for the 0-0 game v. Albania a few days later.
So are there players out there and part of the Euro’s squads that could be seen at Leicester City next season, looking at the list of links, you will find a few interesting names.
Daniel James is a player that we have seen in the rumour mill and an option for Leicester City. He is in the Wales squad. Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Jonas Hofmann and Atalanta defender Robin Gosens are both in the Germany party, both players been linked with Leicester City.
Thorgan Hazard of Borussia Dortmund is also a name seen with Leicester City tags, and alongside his brother part of the Belgium squad.Embed from Getty Images
Leicester do have a player in the Euro’s, strangely never been a first team player at the club, but Che Adams did play for suburb club Oadby Town before moving to Ilkeston and making his professional cut with Sheffield United, moving on to Birmingham City before his bow at Premier League level with Southampton. To date played three games for Scotland and scoring once, wishing Che all the best in the Euro’s. Is he the first player born in Leicester to represent Scotland, what a journey.
