The 10 most expensive players to miss Euro 2021, including Erling Haaland, Jan Oblak and Miralem Pjanic

THE SUMMER’S European Championship fulfilled its promise to be a festival full of football’s top stars.

But not everybody managed to make it…

From up-and-coming youngsters to established stars, a whole host of players had to watch Euro 2020 from their living room.

Here, SunSport looks at the most expensive players, via Transfermarkt, who missed out on qualification.

#1 – Erling Haaland – Norway – £99m

There is no doubt that Erling Haaland would have been a fascinating watch this summer, had Norway not been knocked out of qualification play-offs by Serbia.

Already, the striker has six goals in 10 games for Norway and is now considered among the best players in the world thanks to a stunning season at Borussia Dortmund.

#2 – Jan Oblak – Slovenia – £81m

Had Jan Oblak played for England or Spain, he might be widely seen as the world’s best shot-stopper with a bucketload of international caps.

Alas, Slovenia have not qualified for a major tournament since the Atletico Madrid star’s debut and he spent years as second-choice to Inter Milan’s Samir Handanovic.

#3 – Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Serbia – £63m

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has long been tipped to leave the Serie A club and sign for the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

The opportunity to impress on the big stage this summer was lost with Serbia’s penalty shootout defeat to Scotland last November.

#4 – Miralem Pjanic – Bosnia – £36m

Few know that Miralem Pjanic represented Luxembourg at youth level before switching to the country of his birth in 2008.

Having featured at a World Cup for Bosnia, the Barcelona star missed Euro 2020 after Northern Ireland knocked his side out of the play-offs.

=4 – Martin Odegaard – Norway – £36m

With Haaland and Martin Odegaard, Norway should be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

But this summer comes too soon for the attacking midfielder, who starred on loan at Arsenal before returning to Real Madrid.

#6 – Filip Kostic – Serbia – £28.8m

Serbia are the most-represented nation on this list having been the favourites to win their play-off path.

Eintracht Frankfurt winger Filip Kostic missed Euro 2020 despite being a star of Bundesliga for a number of years.

=6 – Kostas Manolas – Greece – £28.8m

Greece are now far from the team that won Euro 2004 and were a common fixture at major tournaments.

Coming third in Group J of qualifying, behind Finland, and a poor Nations League performance deprived Napoli defender Kostas Manolas of his first Euros.

#8 – Nikola Milenkovic – Serbia – £25.2m

Serbia must be wondering what might have been after stumbling to Ukraine and Portugal in Group B before the penalty heartbreak at the hands of Scotland.

Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, 23, is one of the starlets who would have fancied making a name for themselves at Euro 2020 with Juventus reportedly tracking his progress.

#9 Marash Kumbulla – Albania – £24.3m

Albania made their only trip to a major finals in France four years ago, famously beating Romania having almost snatched a point off the hosts.

Roma’s 21-year-old defender Marash Kumbulla would have been a key talent to watch had his nation made it out of qualifying.

#10 – Stefan Savic – Serbia – £22m

It is little surprise that Atletico Madrid’s LaLiga title challenge has been built on a very strong defence.

The star of Diego Simeone’s backline has been former Manchester City man Stefan Savic, who watched on as Serbia were knocked out in last year’s play-offs.
