#3 Serie A | 70 Players

Gli Azzurri players have traditionally preferred to play their club football in Italy, and 2020 is no different. In the 26-man squad named by Roberto Mancini, only three players — Marco Verratti, Jorginho, and Emerson Palmieri — currently play outside Serie A. Alessandro Florenzi was on loan in France but he too has returned to his parent club, AS Roma.

Apart from the strong representation from the Italian national side in Serie A, the headlines are understandably stolen by Cristiano Ronaldo. The Juventus star and Portugal captain will be joined by his teammates Adrien Rabiot, Matthijs de Ligt, Alvaro Morata, and others at Euro 2020. Internazionale aces Romelu Lukaku, Milan Skriniar, and Stefan de Vrij are among other noteworthy names.


#2 Bundesliga | 90 Players

Arguably the biggest hub of exciting European talent in the world, the Bundesliga comes in at second place with a staggering 90 players at Euro 2020. Germany's 26-man squad is dominated by a host of Bayern Munich stars, including Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, and Die Mannschaft skipper Manuel Neuer. Top-scorer Robert Lewandowski is set to lead Poland's charge in Group E.

Jadon Sancho is, perhaps, Bundesliga's headline representative at Euro 2020 outside of Bayern Munich's raft of treble winners. His teammates Raphael Guerrero, Mats Hummels, Thorgan Hazard, and Jude Bellingham will be at the tournament as well. Others such as Marcel Sabitzer, Dani Olmo, Marcus Thuram, Yussuf Poulsenn, and Marcel Halstenberg round off an impressive list.


#1 Premier League | 118 Players

Unsurprisingly, the English Premier League takes the top spot with an astounding 118 players set to turn up for their countries at Euro 2020. The Premier League is widely regarded as the biggest football league in the world and is comfortably the most free-spending one. This has allowed them to bring in top players from all over the globe, leading to them having such a high number of representatives.

They have an incredible contingent of players from almost every established side at Euro 2020. This list includes the likes of Paul Pogba, Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Kai Havertz, Harry Maguire, and a long list of stellar names. From experienced veterans to exciting young talent, the Premier League has no shortage of players set to represent them in the upcoming competition.
