Haaland, Oblak & Tadic: Who's the most valuable player to miss out on Euro 2020?

Erling Haaland & Norway failed to qualify for Euro 2020

The 24 teams for Euro 2020 have now been finalised.

Last Thursday, Scotland, Slovakia, Hungary and North Macedonia all booked their place at the tournament in their respective play-off games.

Iceland, Northern Ireland, Serbia and Georgia were the unlucky quartet to miss out on qualification, joining the likes of Norway, Greece, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Republic of Ireland, Kosovo and more.

Given that only 24 teams will feature at Euro 2020 next summer, a number of high-profile players from the aforementioned nations - and other countries - will miss the tournament.

In fact, there are seven players based in Europe worth over €30m that will be absent from the competition.
