Ten players from the Arsenal squad started the Euros 2016 tournament this summer, and some of the squad’s more experienced players have had a huge impact on the Euros and how their country has performed. From Petr Cech in goal, to Mesut Ozil, Tomas Rosicky and Aaron Ramsey orchestrating the midfield, the creative, quality players have performed to the best of their abilities throughout the tournament so far.
Although not all ten players are still in the Euros, as the Czech Republic came bottom of their group, they still had a major impact throughout the games they played. If you’re feeling lucky and you think you can guess what the scores of the up and coming tournament games are going to be, then visit the score predictor from Ladbrokes’. We’ve put together a list on how Arsenal’s more experienced players are having an impact on the Euros this summer.
Ozil is one of the most experienced players in the German squad, having 19 goals in 72 caps,m and has been a regular player for the World Championships for a number of years now. He is a regular player in the 4-2-3-1 German formation, and is more often than not the creative playmaker in the team offering a huge number of assists and goals to his name. He was named man of the match after his impeccable game against Northern Ireland and his fine form throughout the tournament so far has proven vital to the German side getting through to the quarter-finals.
Although the Czech Republic finished bottom of their group after a 2-0 defeat to Turkey, Cech made a huge impact with his impressive shot stopping ability throughout the squad’s games at the group stages. Cech is a legend for his country and he is the most capped player in Cech history having won the Czech Republic Player of the Year award eight times. Although the squad didn’t make it through to the quarter finals, there is no doubt how much of an important player Cech was when it came to having an impact on the Euros.
Another Czech Republic player that made a huge difference when it came to his country’s midfield. The creative maestro was always going to be an influential player and despite being the country’s oldest player through the tournament, there was no denying how influential he was in mid-field. Although he is set to depart from Arsenal, he will be remembered throughout the club’s history.
Although only aged 25, Ramsey provides Wales with a lot of big game experience that the team will need as they enter their first major tournament in 58 years. Although he hasn’t had the best season being hampered by injuries and criticised when he has played, there is no denying how vital Ramsey is for the Wales teams’ resurgence. Ultimately he is the perfect type of central attacking midfielder needed to create goals for the team and inject energy alongside Joe Allen and Gareth Bale.
