With less than a month to go, the countdown has begun. Euro 2016 promises to be a scintillating, power packed and a high-quality tournament filled with stars putting on their national colours and fighting it out for glory. For the players, representing the country is a matter of great pride. It also enables them to showcase their talents and temperament on the biggest stage in Europe. However, injuries are a big part of a player’s life and unfortunately, there is always a group of quality players who miss out on the showpiece event. Here we look at the top 10 players who will not be playing Euro 2016 due to injury:

1. Vincent Kompany (Belgium)



The absence of their captain Vincent Kompany is a massive blow to Mark Wilmot’s side keen to make an impression at the Euros. Vincent Kompany is a leader and when fully fit, is one of the best centre-backs in the world. However, the Manchester City star has made just 22 appearances for them this season. Injured against Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the CL, he has been on the treatment table ever since leading to his omission from the 23 man squad.
