EURO 2016: Top 7 Clubs with most players at the tournament
A look at the clubs sending the most number of players to the Euros.
With Euro 2016 just around the corner, teams are doing their utmost to figure out their best combination. The best thing to happen for a national side is to have most of its players playing for the same club as it helps them bond quicker on the international setup as well.
A plethora of players from some of the very top clubs are going to be playing the Euros this year. Some of them play for the same clubs. Strangely, one of the club that jointly leads the charts of having most players in Euro 2016 aren’t going to be playing in Europe next season (not giving spoilers just yet).
Keeping all this in mind, here are the top 7 clubs with the most players at the Euros this year…
#5.a Shakhtar Donetsk – 9
Shakhtar might not be among the super-giants in club football, but when it comes to their players representing the national team, they fare better than even (spoiler alert) Real Madrid. The Ukranian giants have no fewer than 9 players in the tournament, jointly sitting at number 5 with two more teams.
Their players include…
Andriy Pyatov (Ukraine), Vyacheslav Shevchuk (Ukraine), Oleksandr Kucher (Ukraine), Yaroslav Rakitskiy (Ukraine), Bohdan Butko (Ukraine), Taras Stepanenko (Ukraine), Viktor Kovalenko (Ukraine), Yevhen Seleznyov (Ukraine), Darijo Srna (Croatia)
