With the UEFA 2020 European Championships over, there will be a number of football fans who will be looking for something to do to fill the time that they will have been left with for the remainder of the summer.
Of course, there is plenty that they can do, though, with the Olympic Games (and the football discipline) available throughout July and August, whilst the potential to visit the best au online casino is also possible for many, as well.
Nonetheless, there will be a number of professional footballers who will either be looking forward to the rest and time away from the pitch, whilst there might be some questioning just why they had such a poor Euro 2020 tournament, with some perhaps best getting back to the training pitch as soon as possible.
WhoScored decided to take a look at what the worst XI would be prior to Italy’s triumphant penalty shootout win against England in the Final was and there are some truly shocking names to feature on the list.
The data has been taken from players who had managed to make at least four starts in the competition, therefore eliminating anyone who played for a nation that was unable to qualify for the knockout phase of the competition, but that did not stop a host of top names from featuring.
Here is what they managed to find with their data analysis:
GK: Manuel Neuer | Germany | 6.01
RB: Oleksandr Karavaev | Ukraine | 6.31
CB: Domagoj Vida | Croatia | 6.27
CB: Antonio Rudiger | Germany | 6.17
LB: Joško Gvardiol | Croatia | 6.44
RM: Bernardo Silva | Portugal | 6.41
CM: Serhiy Sydorchuk | Ukraine | 6.26
CM: Joe Allen | Wales | 6.21
CM: Aaron Ramsey | Wales | 6.56
LM: Diogo Jota | Portugal | 6.62
ST: Roman Yaremchuk | Ukraine | 6.56
A true whos-who of a line-up and one a football club would love to have in almost any division around the world.
Manuel Neuer, Antonio Rudiger, Bernardo Silva, Aaron Ramsey and Diogo Jota are arguably the biggest names on the list, with each of them having proven to be capable of playing at the top level. Perhaps they will want to give playing the online slots South Africa has to offer them in the future, as their luck definitely does not appear to be in.
Roman Yaremchuk’s name is perhaps surprising given he led the line well for Ukraine, but perhaps that also highlights that the majority of strikers who made four or more starts were perhaps at a better level.
There would be questions about Ciro Immobile and Harry Kane, though as they did not have great tournaments.
