Euro 2020 starts on June 11th, and there is at least one man in every group who is a current or former Newcastle player.

There will even be a Toon coaching presence, with Graeme Jones joining Gareth Southgate’s backroom setup with England.

In total, 14 current and former Newcastle players will be at the tournament. But who are they?

Every current Newcastle player going to Euro 2020

Fabian Schar

Despite only recently returning from injury, Fabian Schar is part of Switzerland’s Euros squad.

He will likely be the first Toon player to compete at the tournament when the Swiss face Wales in Group A on Saturday June 12th.

Ryan Fraser

Despite Steve Bruce’s concerns, Ryan Fraser has been named in the Scotland squad.

It’s been a tough debut season at Newcastle for Fraser, so perhaps the Euros can spark him into life.

Martin Dubravka

Newcastle’s number one will be Slovakia’s number one.

Dubravka will be tasked with keeping out Robert Lewandowski when Slovakia face Poland on June 14th.

Emil Krafth

The fourth and final Newcastle player at Euro 2020, and a second in Group E.

Krafth and Dubravka will face each other when Sweden meet Slovakia on June 18th.

Every former Newcastle player going to Euro 2020

Kevin Mbabu

Schar will be joined in the Switzerland squad by former Magpie Kevin Mbabu.

The defender has gone from strength to strength since leaving Newcastle in 2016. Mbabu currently plays for Wolfsburg in Germany.

Matz Sels

One of Rafa Benitez’s worst signings as Newcastle boss.

Sels had a torrid time in England, but is a part of Belgium’s squad who are one of the tournament favourites.

Valentino Lazaro

Lazaro will represent Austria in Group C.


Georginio Wijnaldum

Five years ago, Wijnaldum had just been relegated with Newcastle.

In 2021, he’s set to captain the Netherlands at the Euros amid reports he is set to join Barcelona.

Luuk de Jong

Another Newcastle flop. Luuk de Jong joined the club on loan in January 2014, but failed to score a single goal.

Netherlands will be hoping he’s much more prolific in orange…

Patrick van Aanholt

Van Aanholt is another member of Holland’s Euros squad who had a loan spell with Newcastle.

The left-back spent a month at St James’ Park back in 2010 when Newcastle were in the Championship.

Tim Krul

Tim Krul played nearly 200 times for Newcastle, and is the fourth former Magpie in the Netherlands squad.

He is competing with Maarten Stekelenburg and Marco Bizot to be their first choice goalkeeper.

Grant Hanley

Another Rafa Benitez signing from 2016 who failed to deliver.

Now Hanley will have to stop England when Scotland face the Three Lions at Wembley on June 18th.

Lubomir Satka

Lubomir Satka spent five years at Newcastle as a youngster, but only managed one appearance for the first-team.

He was released in 2017, and currently plays for Lech Poznan in Poland.

Satka joins Dubravka in the 26-man Slovakia squad.

Moussa Sissoko

The World Cup holders France are one of the favourites for the Euros, and their squad includes a former Magpie.

Moussa Sissoko helped secure a move away from Newcastle with his performances at the Euros in 2016. A similar level of performance might ensure he wins the first major honour of his career.
