Which Liverpool players are and aren’t qualified for Euro 2024

Twenty-one teams have qualified for next summer’s European Championships and we now know which Liverpool players have qualified, are still with a chance or will not be involved at all.

The group qualifying for Euro 2024 has now concluded and for Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and Dominik Szoboszlai, the November break secured their respective qualification for the tournament.

Next summer’s competition will take place between June 14 and July 14, with Germany playing host.

But which Reds will be involved and who is set to miss out?

 

Qualified and likely going

With the Netherlands, England, Scotland, France, Hungary and Portugal all qualifying, the abovementioned seven will all be expected to play their part for their respective nations.

There will be less than four weeks between the end of the Premier League season and the start of the tournament, ensuring they will all be eager to avoid any injuries.

 

Uncertain or unlikely

Tsimikas’ hopes rest on a successful play-off campaign after Greece finished third in their group qualifiers, leaving his involvement balancing on success in March.

The likes of Gomez, Jones, Elliott, Gravenberch, Thiago, Bajcetic and Doak have all seen their nations qualify but have not played any part of it, leaving plenty to prove in the coming months.

 

Players not going

While all the players in Liverpool’s squad are not European, it is not to say it will not be a busy summer for Jurgen Klopp‘s team as there is more than just the Euros to contend with.

The likes of Alisson, Mac Allister, Nunez and Diaz will take part in Copa America – which runs from June 20 to July 14 – and will ask more of them after the season and immediately prior to pre-season.

It, therefore, will leave the Reds with a small group on return for pre-season in 2024.

Only Caoimhin Kelleher and Conor Bradley failed to see their nations qualify for the Euros, but Mohamed Salah should get some much-needed rest as AFCON takes place in January.

Summer transfer activity could change this landscape but for right now, this is what lies ahead for the Reds next summer and the club will already be putting plans in place to ensure Klopp’s preparations for 2024/25 run as smoothly as possible.
