The UEFA executive committee has announced that national teams participating in Euro 2024 in Germany this June and July can bring squads of 23 to 26 players, as per BBC.

All members of the squad can be listed on the teamsheet, unlike in the previous 2021 tournament where squads could include 26 players, but three of them had to watch from the stands instead of suiting up.

This decision suggests that 26-player squads could become the standard for all future UEFA national competitions as this will benefit national teams dealing with injuries, especially since the Euros are just six weeks away.

It must be remembered that the 26-player squads were also allowed during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar due to the tournament’s scheduling in the middle of the domestic season.

Some international coaches had criticized the limitations of the 23-player squads, but at a recent Euro 2024 coaches meeting, the proposal to maintain 26-player squads received strong support.

Barcelona are poised to have a strong presence at the upcoming event in Germany, even though an official squad list hasn’t been announced yet. 

While the Spanish national team will face a few setbacks due to injuries sidelining key players like Gavi and Alejandro Balde, Barcelona will make sure there are options within the exceptional youth academy, La Masia. 

This means we could potentially see young talents such as Fermin Lopez, Hector Fort, and Pau Cubarsi joining the lineup.

Meanwhile, one player whose selection seems almost guaranteed is Lamine Yamal, who is expected to secure his spot in Luis de la Fuente’s Spanish team. 

In addition, experienced players such as Ferran Torres, Inigo Martinez, and Sergi Roberto could also earn their place on the national team roster.

In summary, Barcelona are set to make a notable impact in Germany, boasting a strong representation of both seasoned professionals and promising young talents.
