Two Manchester United players have been highlighted as a potential 2024 European Championship-winning duo this summer.

Following their FA Cup final victory over Manchester City at the end of May, eight of Manchester United’s top players are set to compete for glory in the European Championships this summer.

Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes have been training with Portugal, while Kobbie Mainoo will make his professional debut for England, joining Luke Shaw in Gareth Southgate’s squad. Although Tom Heaton will join the training squad, he will not feature for England.

Scott McTominay will be a key player for Scotland, and Altay Bayındır will compete for Turkey’s goalkeeping spot. Last but not least, Rasmus Højlund and Christian Eriksen will carry Denmark’s hopes to Germany this summer.

Denmark assistant coach Morten Wieghorst has been raving about how the pair’s connection on a club level could be the key to unlocking a 2024 European Championship win for Denmark.

“To try and utilise those relationships that players can have from their club situations is always a benefit, especially when you’re talking about great players like Christian and Rasmus,” Wieghorst told Reuters in a recent interview ahead of Denmark’s travel to Germany for the tournament.

Wieghorst continued, explaining that Danish players who have played together at club level have been the ones to create the greatest history with their national team, citing multiple squads of the past.

“Historically, that’s been a lynch-pin for Denmark as well—in our great ’80s Danish team, we had players playing together at Ajax, at Anderlecht, clubs like that where players were playing at a high level.

“They were playing together and bringing those relationships back to the national team, which is a great thing—even in the 1992 Euro-winning team, we had seven or eight players with relationships back to Brondby, and that’s something that can be utilised,” 

“Eriksen is still a fantastic player, and he has the experience—we have to remember that going into the Euros and finals in general, having players that have been there before and done it and tried everything is so important.”
