We’re a few weeks away from the start of another thrilling few weeks of international football. The 2016 UEFA European Championship kicks off on the 10th June and this time it is the turn of France to play host on this particularly notable and occasion in the history of the tournament. For the first time ever 24 teams from across Europe will be competing for the title and every squad is going to need its very best players to ensure it can put together a strong enough chance to lift the trophy. But which players have missed out on the chance to head to France this summer due to an unexpected injury.

Danny Welbeck

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck was a crucial cog in England manager Roy Hodgsons’ road to Euro 2016 qualification however the 25-year old has been unfortunate enough to pick up a few knocks and injuries along the way and his latest has meant that he’ll be missing out on a spot in England’s Euro 2016 squad. His latest was a knee injury and cartilage damage that he suffered during a match against Manchester City earlier this month which could leave him sidelined until February 2017.

Jack Butland

At the end of March another unexpected injury issue ruled out one of England’s top keepers. It was during a friendly match played in Berlin between England and Germany which saw the visiting side snatch a historic 2-3 victory after coming back from 2-0 behind. Stoke keeper Jack Butland was selected to play but the in-form goalie fractured his ankle during the game which as painful as it was at the time it was going to have even more heartbreaking consequences as the 23-year old realised that it was an injury that would end his chances of landing a place in the squad for the Euros.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

At Euro 2012 he became the second youngest England player ever to play in the tournament behind Wayne Rooney but unfortunately four years on Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has had to face a number of injuries including his latest that he picked up back in February against Barcelona. With so many great midfield options to pick from and due to the lack of minutes that he’s spent on the pitch this season it was pretty clear to everyone involved that Oxlade-Chamberlain would not be taking a seat on that plane next month.
