Diogo Jota is up against a fresh Liverpool challenge as Euro 2020 presents a significant opportunity.

Liverpool will not be well represented at the upcoming European Championships.

Only seven Reds will be expecting to play for their country when the tournament begins off this evening in Rome with Turkey taking on Italy due to injuries, failure to qualify, and players transferring abroad.

With Switzerland taking on Wales in Baku on Saturday, Xherdan Shaqiri and Neco Williams might square off as early as Saturday, while Jordan Henderson will most likely be limited to bench action the following day when England takes on Croatia. At the weekend, Harry Wilson could potentially be involved.

Then, on Monday, Andy Robertson will captain Scotland against the Czech Republic, while Thiago Alcantara will try to earn a starting spot for Spain against Sweden later in the day.

However, it is the final Liverpool player who could participate in Euro 2020 who is the subject of the most speculation.

Not least because Diogo Jota has a lot to live up to in terms of Reds forwards making an impression on the competition.

Jota made an immediate impact after joining Liverpool from Wolverhampton Wanderers last September, only to be sidelined for more than three months due to a knee injury.

A final tally of 13 goals in 30 games was a respectable performance for an injury-plagued debut season, demonstrating his ability to frequently challenge the entrenched. The summary comes to a close.
