It would almost be forgotten, but Yannick Carrasco was a starter under Domenico Tedesco in the national team for a long time. However, he was not there last March and his name is not really mentioned anymore, despite his good form at the club.

Domenico Tedesco’s squad for the 2024 European Championship will consist of 26 players instead of 23, and that is a big relief for the national coach. Even under these circumstances, Tedesco will have to make tough choices and pass over deserving players.

For example, Domenico Tedesco had already included 25 players last March, and of course the certain Kevin De Bruyne was missing – that makes 26. Will there be room in the final group for Yannick Carrasco (30 years old), who was also injured at the time?

Carrasco could well be present at the 2024 European Championship

If we were to ask the supporters, it’s almost certain: the answer would be overwhelmingly no. Despite his 72 caps (11 goals) and despite his 8 starts in 10 games under Domenico Tedesco. In March, Carrasco only missed training camp due to an injury. In November he was even… captain against Serbia.

In short, those who believe Carrasco’s departure to Saudi Arabia should cost him the Euros are likely to be disappointed in June next year when the list of 26 is announced. Especially since the former Atlético Madrid player is in good form.

He has been voted Player of the Month for April in Saudi Arabia. And he starts May in the same way, beautifully scoring his third goal in three games for Al-Shabab against Al-Raed last Saturday.
