Euro 2016: List of players that could be suspended for yellow card
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
