Domenico Tedesco awaits this decision with enormous impatience. Because it would solve a lot of its puzzles for balance players. We think, for example, of Michy Batshuayi who could pay the price for a classic selection of “only” 23 players. The good news is that we should indeed have an expansion to 26 names. In any case, this is the opinion of the UEFA National Team Competitions Committee.

Meeting this Monday afternoon, the committee voted for Euro 2024 in favor of a model similar to that of Euro 2020 and the 2022 World Cup, with the idea of ​​dealing with possible injuries or related packages particularly to the health crisis. It is also required that all players be present on the match sheet and on the sidelines, as at the World Cup in Qatar. This is what our colleagues from The Team which specify that the debates lasted long hours and that the representative of the French Federation voted in favor of lists limited to 23 players.

The final decision, however, will fall to the UEFA executive committee which should meet in the coming days, even if no date has been communicated. President by Aleksandr Ceferin and composed of nineteen other members (none Belgian), the committee should logically follow the opinion of the competitions commission for national teams, but could also take an intermediate decision such as 24 or 25 players.
