Best XI of superstars who will NOT be playing at Euro 2020 including Sergio Ramos, Erling Haaland and Virgil Van Dijk

EURO 2020 will be a festival of football this summer with some of the world's best players on show.

But there will be some huge names including Sergio Ramos, Erling Haaland and Virgil van Dijk missing from the tournament.

Gareth Southgate named his provisional 33-man England squad on Tuesday.

But he left some huge names out including Patrick Bamford and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

SunSport put together an XI of the best England stars – with 126 combined caps – to be left out the squad.

And we have done the same for superstars from other European countries who will miss the flagship tournament.

Check out who will not be playing here…

JAN OBLAK

Atletico Madrid's world class keeper Jan Oblak will watch on from home as his country Slovenia failed to qualify.

They haven't reached a major tournament since the 2010 World Cup.

AARON WAN-BISSAKA

Manchester United star Aaron Wan-Bissaka is one of the most defensively sound full-backs in the Premier League.

But his lack of impact going forward has seen him left out of England's squad while his United team-mate Luke Shaw has been included after arguably the best season of his career.

SERGIO RAMOS

For the first time in history there will be no Real Madrid players in the Spain squad.

Ramos is captain of both teams and has been left out of his country's squad for the Euros.

He missed several games for Los Blancos through injury recently which is why he was left out. Manchester City star Aymeric Laporte has been called up in his place.

VIRGIL VAN DIJK

The Liverpool star has been out injured for most of the season after Jordan Pickford crocked him in the Merseyside derby in October.

His knee ligament injury has not cleared up in time meaning Holland's captain will miss out.

Having failed to qualify for Euro 2016 and the last World Cup, Van Dijk is yet to represent the Dutch at a major tournament.

JEROME BOATENG

The Bayern Munich ace was exiled from the international setup along with fellow stars Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels in 2019 as Joachim Low sought to bring through the next generation of stars.

Low is leaving after the Euros and has recalled Muller and Hummels for his last major tournament.

But he did not extend that courtesy to Boateng – who broke down in tears during his last game for Bayern – despite the centre-back playing 39 games in all competitions for the Bavarian giants this season.

FERLAND MENDY

Another Real Madrid star who is unlikely to feature at the Euros.

He was struck down with tibial periostitis (severe shin splints) earlier this month and has not been included in France's squad as a result.

MIRALEM PJANIC

Since moving to Barcelona from Juventus last summer, the Bosnian has struggled for form.

But none of that matters as his country were beaten by Northern Ireland in the qualifiers.

SERGEJ MILINKOVIC-SAVIC

Serbia were beaten by Scotland in a dramatic penalty shoot out in the play-offs.

As a result, the much fancied Lazio star will not be able to showcase his talents to potential suitors this summer.

He has 22 caps and is being linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea after Lazio failed to qualify for the Champions League.

ISCO

One of several victims of the 'No Real Madrid players for Spain' situation.

The playmaker has 38 Spain caps but has only managed 29 games for Los Blancos this season with his relationship with Zinedine Zidane somewhat strained.

ERLING HAALAND

The Norwegian is one of the most exciting young stars in the world.

He became the first player since Brazilian Ronaldo to score 40 goals in a season in Europe's top five leagues before the age of 21 last week.

But Norway were knocked out in the play-off semi-finals by Serbia so will not be taking part.

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC

Having made a remarkable comeback to the international stage aged 39, the AC Milan star will miss out on Sweden's Euros campaign with a knee injury.

The icon has scored 62 goals in 118 Sweden games and was welcomed back into the fold earlier this season after a five-year break but will miss what would surely have been his last opportunity at a major tournament.
