The EURO 2024 tournament will witness the last round of quarter-final games on Saturday night. The third quarter-final is to be played between England and Switzerland in Dusseldorf. The winner of the game will then wait for the winner of the Netherlands vs Turkey game to play in the 2nd Semi-Finals 

England had scraped through in their round of 16 match versus Slovenia. Goals in the 91st minute by Harry Kane and 95th minute by Jude Bellingham was the difference maker. Despite all the flaws they have shown, England has found a way to make a comeback and win from difficult situations. 

The match against Switzerland will be key for a few England players when they take to the field. Five players are close to losing their place in the starting XI for the Semi-Finals if England wins on Saturday. These five players are walking a tightrope as they have already accumulated enough yellow cards to get themselves in trouble. 

Here are the top 5 players who could miss the Semis if they are booked 

5. Conor Gallagher 


The 24-year-old has been steady with his performances for England during the EURO 2024 tournament. If the Chelsea star gets booked on Saturday he could be one of the England players to miss the semi-finals if the three Lions manage to win their contest in Dusseldorf. 

4. Phil Foden – 


Manchester City attacker Phil Foden is just one booking away from missing the semi-finals. The youngster will be looking thread with caution as he takes to the field on Saturday against Switzerland. Phil Foden has been one of the better players for Gareth Southgate during the tournament. 

3. Kobbie Mainoo 


Young Manchester United sensation Kobiee Mainoo has run the midfield for England this campaign. The talented star will look not to get booked during the game versus Switzerland as he will look to play his first-ever major semi-finals in the national colors. 

2. Kieran Trippier 


Newcastle United right-back Kieran Trippier will be starting against the Swiss as the right-wing back. His contributions on the ball with the offence and also in the defence have been a strong point for England. If he gets booked on Saturday and England goes on to win he will surely miss the semi-finals. 

1. Jude Bellingham 


Here is the one player that Gareth Southgate cannot miss in the final four stages of the tournament if England qualify. Jude Bellingham has been the biggest match-winner for England during the EURO 2024 campaign and his offensive threats have meant that the opposition fear the young Real Madrid starlet.
