All of the 16 players who represent Chelsea at this summer’s European Championship have made it to the tournament’s round of 16.
After the competition’s playoff bracket has been revealed, now we can take a look at what scenarios could see the Blues face each other in the final on July 11.
The Round of 16 will be the last game for at least five Chelsea players.
England (Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, Reece James) will take on Germany (Antonio Rudiger, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner). Moreover, the winner of this round should immediately become the favorite to go all the way to the final.
In the same half of the bracket, Denmark (Andreas Christensen) will face Wales who will be without a suspended Ethan Ampadu.
While Mateo Kovacic’s Croatia and Cesar Azpilicueta’s Spain will also play each other in the Round of 16. Meanwhile, the winner is likely to face France (N’Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud, Kurt Zouma) in the quarterfinal, and the World Cup winners would be the heavy favourites either way.
Two other teams that have Chelsea players might also face off in the quarterfinal – but while Jorginho is a key player for Italy (and Emerson could in theory feature too), Michy Batshuayi is firmly a bench player for Belgium.
The summary is, there are plenty of opportunities for the Chelsea players to square off at Wembley on July 11, and almost every game has the potential to be very interesting one for the Blues’ fans!
