A total of 45 players competing in the Euro 2016 quarterfinals, which begin on Thursday when Poland faces off against Portugal, face a suspension for the semifinals if they pick up another yellow card.

Under the current rules for the European Championship, if a player picks up two yellow cards before the semifinals, they are suspended for the following game. Yellow card accumulation does not carry over past the semifinals, meaning the only way a player can be suspended for the final is by being sent off in the semis.

Four players are suspended for the quarterfinals: Thiago Motta of Italy, Thomas Vermaelen of Belgium and Adil Rami and N’Golo Kante of France. Bartosz Kapustka of Poland is returning from a suspension.

According to UEFA, here is who could miss out on the semifinals with another booking, including 11 players from Italy and nine from Iceland:

Belgium: Jan Vertonghen, Thomas Meunier, Axel Witsel, Marouane Fellaini, Michy Batshuayi

France: Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny

Germany: Jérôme Boateng, Mats Hummels, Sami Khedira, Joshua Kimmich, Mesut Özil

Iceland: Kári Árnason, Birkir Bjarnason, Johann Gudmundsson, Aron Gunnarsson, Hannes Halldorsson, Birkir Sævarsson, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Ari Skúlason
