PSG Players Poised to Have a Breakout Euros

There’s only one match left in the Ligue 1 season for Paris Saint-Germain, but there’s plenty of football to look forward to this summer. The UEFA Euros 2024 kicks off on June 14, in Germany and the biggest European stars will be chasing the coveted Henri Delaunay Trophy.

Whether you buy Euro 2024 tickets or plan to watch from home, there are several PSG players expected to have a big impact on their national teams. Kylian Mbappé will lead the France national team, but he’ll be out of contract at PSG before the tournament is over and likely a Real Madrid player. So, what other players could have a breakout tournament?

Vitinha

Portugal last won the Euros in 2016, and if they hope to win it again, Vitinha will play a large role. This past season at PSG, Vitinha was consistently one of the best players on the pitch for Luis Enrique. He’s capable of maintaining possession under immense pressure, picking out the right pass to launch the attack, and he’s not afraid to test the goalkeeper from distance. PSG supporters already know he’s one of the best midfielders in Europe, and after this tournament, the rest of the world will, too.

Xavi Simons

Alright, we don’t know if Xavi Simons will definitely be a PSG player next season, but it’s more likely than not. Currently on loan at RB Leipzig, Simons is one of the most exciting and coveted young players in Europe. He should feature for a very good Netherlands side, and I expect him to showcase his creativity throughout the tournament.

Bradley Barcola & Warren Zaïre-Emery

While Mbappé will get all the headlines for France during the Euros, Bradley Barcola and Warren Zaïre-Emery could steal the show if given an opportunity. Breaking into the France team will be difficult, but both young players enter the tournament with UEFA Champions League experience that should serve them well in high-pressure situations. Regardless of their playing time, the fact that these two youngsters are in France’s squad for the Euros is a very good sign for PSG moving forward.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Italy is the defending champion of the Euros, and it’s mostly because of Gianluigi Donnarumma’s heroics in 2021. While Donnarumma is typically great for Italy, he’s struggled at times for PSG. He put together a solid campaign this season, but Donnarumma continues to need work on his passing and dribbling abilities. The Euros will be a great time for him to continue working on his game and be in great form heading into next season for PSG.
