As Unai Emery prepares to guide Aston Villa to the UEFA Champions League next season, after an impressive 2023/24 Premier League campaign, he will be keeping a keen eye on the EURO 2024 competition. Here are the 4 Aston Villa players at EURO 2024 this summer...

The 4 Aston Villa players at EURO 2024 this summer

England - Ezri Konsa, Ollie Watkins

Local Aston Villa fans will be treated to a double-header as not one but two Villa stars will represent England at EURO 2024. Gareth Southgate made the correct decision to call up Ezri Konsa and Ollie Watkins, two of the standout performers and two key players to getting Villa into the Champions League.

Ezri Konsa is versatile enough to play at centre back and right-back. However, given the quality which England already have at full-back, it is more than likely he will be used in his more natural centre-back position.

Watkins is less likely to start for England, given that he is in competition for a place with one of the best strikers in the world, Harry Kane. However, it's good to see him on the plane and he is a great option for Southgate from the bench.

Belgium - Youri Tielemans

Despite not being a nailed-on starter for Aston Villa in the 2023/24 campaign, Youri Tielemans was unsurprisingly selected for the Belgium national team. He has plenty of experience representing Belgium, so he will hope to defy the odds with his beloved nation.

From Aston Villa's perspective, they would hope to see Tielemans return to Villa Park injury free as towards the end of last season, he picked up an unfortunate groin injury. There's no denying he will play a role for Belgium, so hopefully he comes back unharmed.

Scotland - John McGinn

It is no surprise to see John McGinn involved in the Scotland squad as they prepare to play with plenty of pride. The Scots will kick off the EURO 2024 campaign for the first match against home-country Germany. It's a difficult group for Scotland, but they will have a strong belief that they can cause an upset.
