CONFUSION: EURO 2020 best players of the tournament omissions

 

It's never easy to please everybody when picking a team of best players but there are some omissions in the EURO 2020 best XI that confused.

Gianluigi Donnarumma of Italy won the UEFA award for his performances which guided Italy to winning the trophy at Wembley.

However, questions were asked as to why he was chosen over Jordan Pickford - who conceded fewer goals through the tournament.

Luke Shaw was another player omitted from the squad despite his excellent performances for England en route to the final.

The United full-back was overlooked for Leonardo Spinazzola who missed the end of the tournament after suffering a serious injury.

Arguably England's best performer was Raheem Sterling and he was chosen in UEFA's XI of best players along with fellow Englishmen Kyle Walker and Harry Maguire.

The latter two did have question marks though, with Maguire missing the opening two games and Walker being far from a standout performer.

Federico Chiesa's induction into the best XI was deserved after his exciting showing at the tournament, but fellow Italian Marco Verrati missed out.
