5 footballers who will be grateful for the Euro 2020 postponement
UEFA has announced that Euro 2020 will not take place this year and will be postponed to 11 June to 11 July next year. Although it’s a sad thing for football fans around the globe, here is a list of footballers who will benefit from this unfortunate event.
Playing for Lyon, the 26-year-old is currently recovering from a serious knee injury. Expected to make a return July this year, Depay’s performance may have been affected by his injury. But now that the tournament is postponed to next year, the Dutch footballer can recover properly and also be in peak form.
In an FA cup tie against Wolverhamptom Wanderers, the United striker suffered a serious back injury and needed at least a few months to recover. We’re sure he’s glad to hear that Euro 2020 has been postponed.
Coronavirus has certainly been a blessing in disguise for most footballers on our list as they have plenty of time to recover and be in their best form before the tournament. Pogba is expected to return and be playing regular football by April. We hope now with all this time on his hands, he would be able to give a spectacular performance during the tournament.
2019 wasn’t a great year for the Real Madrid player as he suffered a number of injuries. Last February he made a long-awaited return from injury and started playing again. Just six days later, he suffered a broken ankle during Real Madrid’s 1–0 defeat against Levante. Speedy recovery, Hazard!
5. Harry Kane
The 26-year-old Tottenham striker had countless fitness problems throughout last year. And in January, he injured his hamstring. The injury was quite serious as it required an operation which would see him out of action at least until April!
