Leeds United had a wild season in the Premier League, ending up in the 9th spot. It also means they secured their place in the best football league for yet another year. The entire team worked hard the whole year, so it is no wonder that some of the players were invited to represent their native countries in Euro 2020.
The Old Continent (and the rest of the world) is all about football this summer. We are wearing football jerseys, watching games, and even playing football on a gaming console in our free time. But, being online also includes various cyber threats. Staying safe is a must, especially if you are streaming live games to your TV.
One of the best ways to protect your personal information is by using a VPN for PS4 or TV while online. The app is easy to install, and it will encrypt the data you send or receive while enjoying your favourite sport. So let’s meet 5 Leeds United players who are making an appearance in Euro 2020!
Liam Cooper, the Leeds United captain, is in great form and could be an important defensive player for Scotland in the future. He made only five appearances for his national team before Euro 2020. Regardless of this, Cooper was a starter in the first game against the Chech Republic. He had a solid season in the Premier League, and Cooper likely will continue to be on Scotland’s list for upcoming tournaments.
Even though Kalvin Phillips is an extraordinary defensive midfielder, Gareth Southgate usually prefers Rice or Henderson in this position. However, Southgate gave Phillips a chance in Euro 2020, and he didn’t regret it for a single moment. The youngster was a starter in six games so far, showing incredible talent. This player is a hard worker willing to do everything for his team. Phillips will undoubtedly be valuable for the next generation of English players and is very exciting to watch.
The Polish midfielder has been a regular in his team’s lineup for quite some time now. So it is not surprising to find him on Poland’s national team roster for Euro 2020 too. Lewandowski is their main striker and needs someone to help him out. Klich had a pretty good season in Leeds United, so he is the perfect choice for that job. These two are capable of creating excellent opportunities when paired together. Poland did prove they are a solid team but didn’t manage to get to the Round of 16 in Euro 2020.
Tyler Roberts is only 22 years old, but it is clear that he is a talented forward. Even though he is pretty young, Roberts made 15 appearances for Wales. He was included in Wales’ opening game in Euro 2020. Unfortunately, Wales was eliminated in the Round of 16, but Roberts did manage to showcase his skills in the tournament. Roberts is still a bit green, but Wales will have an incredible striker in a couple of years.
North Macedonia is one of the biggest surprises of Euro 2020. They have been named the biggest underdogs even before the tournament started. Indeed, this team doesn’t have many well-known names on its roster, but you have probably heard about Ezgjan Alioski. The midfielder had a good season in Leeds United and is in excellent shape right now. He made three appearances in group stages, scoring one goal for North Macedonia.
