The ideal eleven of the Eurocopa: Donnarumma and ten more

A great team tournament, either the Eurocopa or the World Cup, always contributes to the consolidation of budding stars. Donnarumma, Chiesa, Pedri and Shaw respond to that profile, with the Italian goalkeeper as a great banner of the tournament, named MVP, being the first goalkeeper who achieves it (the prize was delivered since 1996). This euro has also served to verify the importance of already consolidated players or even veterans, such as Bonucci, Jorginho, Maguire, Busquets and Sterling. And of course to make a meeting known to footballers who until now had gone unnoticed for the great public, Maehle and Schick.

Gianluigi Donnarumma (Italy)

There have been porters with more stops (31 Sommer Swiss) and with fewer goals embedded (two of the English pickford), but none has been so decisive for his selection as the new PSG footballer. He was in the final, stopping the last two penalties of Sancho and Saka, as had been in semifinals, frustrating the launch of moor. The Eurocopa consolidates him as one of the best goalkeepers in the world and makes him a national hero for Italy. His is the MVP with total deserving.

Joakim Maehle (Dinamarca)

Surely, the great revelation of the championship next to Schick. No one was waiting too much of a leftial lane that is actually right lateral and that he is not even an undisputed title at the Club of Him, the Atalanta, but has been key in the great performance he has offered the Denmark Semifinalist. He has played all the possible minutes, marking two goals and serving an assistance. Arguments that make you win the battle against men who have acted on the right side, the least remarkable demarcation of the tournament in general lines.

Leonardo Bonucci (Italy)

The position could also have occupied his inseparable Giorgio Chiellini, but his two goals in the final against England declines the scale in his favor. He scored the tie and then successfully executed his penalty in the batch, as he also faced Spain. He is 34 years old but he is still one of the most complete and safest centrals in the world. The Eurocopa rewards a longary career at the 'Nazionale' and promotes him to the Qatar World Cup.

Harry Maguire (England)

It begins to be one of those players who have a special idyll with the selection tournaments. He already shone in the world past and has returned to do it in the euro, leading the least scoundrel defense of the whole tournament. His domain of the air game (he has won 21 duels and has only lost three, in addition to scoring a goal of corner) has been a determinant and consolidates him as one of the best centrals in the world, despite his rough appearance and his lack of speed .

Luke Shaw (Inglaterra)

If the Eurocopa had been held when I owed, I would surely have seen it on television. However, he recovered with Manchester UNITed the great level he let him fight when he was younger and he was made with the starting position with his own merits of him. Consistently in defense and brave in attack, he leaves the tournament with three assists and the goal that uncorked the final, the fastest ever seen in the last match of an eurocopa.

Sergio Busquets (Spain)

The best players are valued better when they are missing that when they are and that is what has happened in this Eurocopa with the Barça footballer. Spain was one during its low by Covid and another when he returned to the team, from the meeting against Slovakia. After Toni Kroos, he has been the midfielder with more passes per game (82) and the highest percentage of completed (73%). And above even the performance of him on the field, the ancestry of him over the collective has contributed to consolidate the Luis Enrique project.

Jorginho (Italy)

The revolution of Italy would not have been possible without its participation. From the position of Mediocentro, in the image and similarity of Busquets, he gives meaning to combinative soccer for which Roberto Mancini has hit successfully. He failed his penalty in the final, but he put the decisive against Spain. As Emerson (also born in Brazil), he has proclaimed Europe champion of clubs and selections in the same course, a milestone up to only another 12 players throughout history.

Pedri González (Spain)

Luis Enrique already told him and he was right: "The Pedri in this European I have not seen anyone with an over 18 years in Eurocopa, World or Olympic Games, neither Don Andrés Iniesta is something out of all logic." After a strenuous season with Barça in which he only lost a game (the last), the Canarian midfielder has played all the minutes (less one) of the Eurocup. The dynamism of it and the playing of it has allowed Spain to end the tournament as the selection with more attacks and the second with more shots, after Italy.

Federico Chiesa (Italy)

The tournament began as a substitute of Berardi, but his performance in the extension of eighth against Austria catapulted him to eleven holder. In that party he scored a goal and repeated in semifinals against Spain. In a selection that at times has sinned horizontally, he has exercised dynamizer, contributing verticality, overflow and auction. He also in the final, in which he altered the dynamics of the meeting until he had to retire by injury. Together with Donnarumma, the greatest certainty of the Italian team has.

Patrik Schick (Czech Republic)

The Eurocopa ends as a top scorer, with five so many. Yes, tied with Cristiano Ronaldo (the official prize is for him for adding an assistance), but the merit of achieving him with a selection and with another is incomparable, as are the expectations that generated one and the other. And he also is part of a team that gave the surprise as he sneaked into the quarterfinals. For the memory of him there will be the goal of him from the center of the countryside against Scotland, without a doubt the best of the entire championship.

Raheem Sterling (Englaterra)

Despite his performance in the final, in which he went totally unnoticed (he did not even throw a penalty), the end of the City has been the best player of the Three Lions during the tournament and his most differential element in attack, pallo the late activation of Kane In the group stage he marked the two goals of his selection, he scored another against Germany, gave an assistance to Ukraine and participated in the two as many against Denmark. Little more one could be asked.
