The players from the Panini sticker album who didn't make it to Euro 2016
“GOT, got, need” is echoing around school grounds and offices as Euro 2016 edges closer – and perhaps manufacturer Panini ‘need’ to brush up on their research.
This summer’s album features stickers of 480 players spread across the 24 teams in France, although some 17 per cent of those featured will not be playing at this summer’s tournament.
In total, 82 players with profile stickers are not in the 23-man squads days out from the Euros, with Wales and Austria the only nations without one erroneous inclusion.
The Republic of Ireland have one wrong player, Mark Wilson, while the north has Chris Brunt and Liam Boyce.
Germany, Russia, Spain and England have six wrong players apiece.
Given 18-year-old star Marcus Rashford had not even made his Manchester United debut until a month after Panini sticker album was signed off, perhaps it is not a surprise!
