Suspension, Yellow Card and Injury Updates Ahead of Euro Quarter Finals

Just one player will miss the Quarter Finals of the Euro due to suspension. Still, it is a major blow to Switzerland, which will face Spain without Granit Xhaka. Several players are in danger of skipping the semifinals as they are one yellow card away from disqualification, compiled.

The most notable names are Harry Maguire, Phil Foden, Kalvin Phillips, and Declan Rice for England; Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquests, Rodri, and Pau Torres for Spain. Nicolò Barella, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, and Matteo Pessina are in the same boat for Italy; Toby Alderweireld, Thorgan Hazard, and Thomas Vermaelen for Belgium. The most high-profile candidates for Czech Republic, Switzerland, and Ukraine are Vladimir Coufal, Manuel Akanji, Nico Elvedi, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Andriy Yarmolenko.

Yellow cards are voided in the next stage of the Euro to avoid suspensions in the final. It could happen only if a player is sent off in the semifinals.

Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard are not dealing with major injuries, but they remain in doubt for the Italy clash. The former sprained his ankle; the former is nursing a thigh issue. They will continue to rehab and be assessed in the next few days. There is more optimism about the Manchester City star. Dries Mertens and Yannick Carrasco would take their places if they could not start, SportMediaset reports.

Giorgio Chiellini has recovered fully, but Francesco Acerbi has some chances to stay in the XI. Alessandro Florenzi has resumed working on the pitch after sitting out three Euro matches. However, he is eyeing more the potential semifinal for his return from a calf contracture, Sky informs. The other major injury concerns elsewhere involve Simon Kjaer, Yussuf Poulsen, Daniel Wass, and Artem Besedin. Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount are now out of isolation.
