Considering the number of players joining the football club at Euro 2016, predictions are mounting on the club’s standing on the right pedestal for winning the June 10 – July 10 2016 tournament.
The Mirror, UK, predicted that even though Jurgen Klopp’s side finished all the way down in 8th place in the 2015/16 Premier League, Liverpool is on the right pedestal to win Euro 2016. Why? because no other club on the planet will have more players at the tournament, they say.
Below is a count down full lists of clubs who will have the most players at the Euro 2016, with Liverpool and Italian giants, Juventus having impressive 12 different stars representing their nations in France.
The 12 Liverpool players include: Nathniel Clyne, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Daniel Strrudge (England), Simon Mignolet, Christian Benteke,Divock Origi (Belgium),Joe Allen, Danny Ward (Wales), Emre Can (Germany) and Martin Skrtel (Slovakia).
That’s more than the Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and every other football club in Europe.
Contrary to reports of its demise, the Liverpool is still the home of more top international players than any other league in Europe. The Premier League has won five European Cups, three UEFA Cups, three UEFA Super Cups, 18 League titles, seven FA Cups, a record eight League Cups, and 15 FA Community Shields.
