With the Euros now in full swing, it’s worth taking a look at the Liverpool players who are currently taking part in the tournament. When the squads were announced a little under a month ago, it was revealed that 8 players would be in the tournament, which is fewer than the amount who were involved in the most recent Euros in 2016, during which Liverpool was the most represented club, tied with Juventus for 12 players representing their countries.
Of the eight players that were confirmed to be playing in Euros 2020, 7 of them are straight from Jurgen Klopp’s first team squad from the most recent season. So, who is representing which country in the tournament?
England has had a hit-and-miss start to the tournament. With a convincing win against Croatia but a not-so-convincing draw with Scotland, their odds of success in the tournament remain questionable. That being said, trying to help them get there are Liverpool players Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson.
This is Scotland’s first time playing in a major tournament for a quarter of a century. However, while their first game losing against the Czech Republic may have been a sobering snap back to reality, their most recent draw against England has sparked hope back into the side. Hoping to channel that and lead the team further in the tournament is Scotland captain and Anfield resident, Andy Robertson.
On the Welsh side, hoping to push forward and go further than the group stage is Neco Williams and Harry Wilson. They currently reside near the top of their group stage, and their game against Italy will determine just how well they qualify or not.
One of the favourites to win the tournament is Spain, and trying to help them get there is Liverpool’s very own Thiago. Amongst other favourites are France, England, and Belgium.

With a fluctuating start following a strong win against Hungary and a brutal loss at Germany’s hands, Portugal has a big game ahead of them as they are set to take on France in the final round of their group games. Part of the team that will trying to help them qualify for the last 16 is Liverpool forward Diogo Jota.
Last but not least, Xherdan Shaqiri will be playing in the Switzerland team, hoping to lead them to victory. They will be playing Turkey in their final group game and hoping that it will be enough to secure them a place in the last 16.
A few Liverpool players that unfortunately missed out on being able to go to the Euros this year despite being veterans with international fixtures are the likes of Caoimhin Kelleher, Kostas Tsimikas, and Marko Grujic, thanks to the fact that Greece, the Republic of Ireland, and Serbia, unfortunately, did not qualify for the Euros.
