Top stars including Benzema to miss Euro 2016
Euro Cup 2016 is just around the corner, with so much hype about the tournament that is to feature some big names of the soccer fraternity, there are few stars, who will not shine at this huge event.
Reasons of unavailability of players vary, there are players struggling with injuries, while there is Karim Benzema, who is left out of French side by the French Football Federation for allegedly blackmailing Mathieu Valbuena. The Real Madrid striker would have made France a threat for all the competitors in the tournament.
Belgium and Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany will miss the glittering soccer event in France due to his groin and thigh injuries. Belgium will surely miss the experience and quality of Kompany during the tournament as he is out for four months. Eden Hazard will wear the captaincy band for Belgium in the Euro Cup 2016.
Spanish star footballer, Diego Costa is also going to miss the upcoming European event due his poor recent run for Chelsea. It was surprising to see a seasoned campaigner like Diego Costa is being overlooked while selection.
Other than these stars, the agile Marco Reus will miss the Euro 2016 campaign due to his groin injury. He also missed World Cup 2010 and 2014 for Germany due to thigh and ankle injury.
