We are at the semi-final stage of Euro 2016 and after a busy 3 and a half weeks we take look at which players are unavailable for the last 4.
The amnesty kicks in at this stage of the tournament so any players already on a yellow card heading into the match will not miss the final should they find themselves in the referee’s notebook.
The home nation have been blessed with the most favourable schedule throughout the tournament and this is reflected in their current squad with all 23 players expected to be available for selection by Didier Deschamps. Adil Remi and N’Golo Kanté return to the squad after their suspensions and will be hoping to come back into the starting lineup.
After their thrilling penalty shootout win over Italy on Saturday night, the Germans have been hit with a string of injuries. Mario Gomez has been ruled out for the rest of the tournament with a muscle injury while Sami Khedira, who went off injured in the quarter final, is unavailable for the match against France. His replacement Bastian Schweinsteiger also picked up a knock during the match and will be assessed closer to the game.
Injured: Gomez, Khedira
Doubtful: Boateng, Schweinsteiger
The fitness of Pepe will be the biggest worry for Portuguese manager Fernando Santos. The Real Madrid defender has been in fantastic form during the tournament and would be a huge loss if he fails to recover in time. Willian Carvalho is suspended after picking up a second booking against Poland and is the only guaranteed absentee from the Portuguese squad.
The suspensions of Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies are a huge loss to surprise package Wales. While James Collins will likely come in to deputise for Davies, the boots of Arsenal’s Ramsey will be much harder to fill. Fortunately though, Wales have no injury concerns. Gareth Bale trained away from the rest of the squad on Monday but was quick to quash any doubts over his availability for Wednesday’s game.
Suspended: Davies, Ramsey
