Euro 2016: Unlucky XI - Team of great players stuck in not-so-good teams
The central defence will be paired by Vlad Chiriches (Romania) and Lorik Cana (Albania). The Napoli centre-back, Chiriches, a crucial part of the Romania backline will play at the heart of defence. Chiriches played every minute of the qualifiers in which Romania had a formidable defensive record of conceding just 2 goals in 10 matches.
On the other hand, Lorik Cana, the Albania captain, is the most capped player in the history of Albania. Possibly past his prime as a player, he continues to carry the weight of national expectation on his shoulders at Euro 2016.
At right back is Republic of Ireland’s Seamus Coleman. The Everton right-back has been a constant starter for his club for over 4 years now. His tireless work rate along with positioning and crossing abilities makes him an asset to any team.
The left back spot is taken by Vyacheslav Shevchuk (Ukraine). Despite his age, Shevchuk has been a reliable left back with tight defensive skills and continues to be a starter for his national team. Having won multiple titles with Ukrainian giant club FC Shakhtar Donetsk, he has failed to achieve the same at the international stage.
