Euro 2020: 5 Group D players Liverpool fans should be watching

England play their first match of Euro 2020 today with a crucial game against Croatia in Group D.

Neighbours Scotland open their campaign tomorrow against the Czech Republic.

While there is only one Liverpool player in the Three Lions squad, Reds fans should be paying attention to a few more players in this group.

Here are the alternatives for Groups A, B and C.

Jordan Henderson

Team: Belgium / Leicester City
Age: 24
Position: Midfielder

The obvious place to start is with Liverpool’s captain.

Kopites will be keen to see if Henderson is sharp after spending almost five months out injured.

If he is fully fit, the 30-year-old should be one of the first names on Gareth Southgate’s teamsheet.

Team: Borussia Dortmund / England
Age: 17
Position: Midfielder

If Henderson isn’t up to speed, Jude Bellingham could well be the player to replace him in the starting XI.

In fact, we here at RTK feel that Bellingham should also eventually replace Henderson in the Liverpool midfield.

You simply never see a 17-year-old doing what he does in the centre of the park. He is going to be world-class in the very near future.

While he should stay at Borussia Dortmund for the next while, Liverpool should do everything they can to snap him up whenever they can.

Team: Croatia / RB Leipzig
Age: 19
Position: Centre-back

While Liverpool fans should keep an eye on Croatian prospects like Duje Caleta-Car and Josip Brekalo, as well as Dejan Lovren, Josko Gvardiol’s recent comments about the club to 24 Sata should see Red interest in him grow.

The 19-year-old is a top prospect, as proven by the fact that RB Leipzig have snapped him up. We all know that Michael Edwards is prone to shopping in the Red Bull market.

It is possible that we will see Gvardiol play at left-back for Croatia at the Euros.

Team: Czech Republic / Sparta Prague
Age: 18
Position: Forward

Adam Hlozek is probably not a name that many fans are familiar with. But that is likely to change in the coming years.

He scored 15 goals and assisted seven more in the Czech league last season.

At just 18-years-old, Liverpool would be wise to snap him up before another big side does.

Team: Scotland / Liverpool
Age: 27
Position: Left-back

We finish the article like it began: with a current Liverpool player.

While it is interesting to look at potential Reds of the future, fans will want to show support to the current crop as well.

Robertson will captain his country at their first major tournament since 1998.

Hopefully, he will lead them out of Group D so that he can cement his status as the best left-back in the world.
