Manchester City players expected to feature at Euro 2024 

Manchester City won a historic treble last season for a reason. Only a handful of players at Pep Guardiola's disposal are not having prominent roles in their national teams.

As we approach the heavily anticipated UEFA 2024 European Championship and interest in Euro 2024 betting heats up, England fans will be hoping their team goes one better than in the 2020 edition.

It will soon be three years since Gareth Southgate's side suffered a grand final heartbreak against Italy at Wembley Stadium, but this is the opportunity to exorcise demons from the past. 

Kyle Walker, John Stones, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden were part of the Three Lions squad that lost the title on penalties, yet they'll have a chance to rectify previous mistakes this summer.

After a 1-1 draw at Liverpool last weekend, Man City remain firmly in the race for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title while they're still in contention for a second straight Champions League crown.

With the 2023/24 season reaching the business end, Guardiola's men must already be thinking of the upcoming tournament as we look at the players who will likely feature in Germany. 


As aforementioned, Stones, Foden, Grealish and Walker will most likely receive Southgate's call-up. 

Walker has been in superb form for Man City this season. The same goes for Foden, who scored a screamer in a 3-1 derby win against Manchester United a fortnight ago. 

However, Stones has experienced an injury-plagued campaign. When fit and ready, he's one of Guardiola's first-team regulars, but he has been a frequent patient in the infirmary this term.

That shouldn't derail his chances of boarding a plane for Germany. Grealish would wish he'd be that lucky after tumbling down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium.

Following a remarkable 2022/23 season, the versatile forward has only made 14 Premier League appearances this year, casting doubt on his Euro 2024 prospects. 

Speaking on the FIVE podcast with Rio Ferdinand, Walker named Stones 'a party lover' ahead of Grealish, though it will do almost nothing to improve the winger's cause unless he rediscovers his form quickly.

Rico Lewis, on the other hand, will probably stay at home. Despite making his international debut in November, the youngster has since fallen out of favour with Guardiola. 


Another player who recently picked a quarrel with the Spaniard was Kevin De Bruyne, who was furious with the manager's decision to sub him off against Liverpool.

In an interview with The Sun, the Man City boss explained his choice to withdraw the high-performing midfielder midway through the second half.

Nothing of the sort should happen at Euro 2024, as De Bruyne should be the driving force behind De Rode Duivels' pursuit of a first standout success at a major international tournament. 

Jeremy Doku will probably be there to lend a helping hand, even though his form has dwindled after an impressive start to life in Manchester.

The Belgians are well behind the leading title contenders in the Euro 2024 betting charts, but with De Bruyne pulling the strings, no one can write them off.


Mateo Kovacic and Josko Gvardiol joined Man City last summer but have already become vital to Guardiola's tactical set-up. 

Even before moving to the Etihad, the Croatian duo were permanent fixtures in Zlatko Dalic's selection, helping their country make several impressive runs at major tournaments. 


Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias were part of Portugal's high-flying side that qualified for Euro 2024 as Group J winners with an eye-catching 100% win ratio.

Matheus Nunes, who has recently affirmed himself at Man City, could join his more esteemed countrymen if he continues to impress. 


Guardiola's most trusted midfielder will play a pivotal role in Spain's bid to restore glory days. Rodri has been nothing short of indispensable for Man City. 

His status on the national team has never been in doubt. 


Manuel Akanji is another Man City star destined to appear in Germany, albeit with Switzerland unlikely to win the Euros this summer.
