UEFA is looking into the possibility of allowing more than 23 players per squad at this summer’s European Championship, a spokesman for the federation told AFP on Thursday.
“UEFA is considering the issue. No decision has been made yet,” a spokesperson told AFP.
The option has been prompted by calls from several coaches, notably of Italy, Belgium and France, to prepare for teams possibly losing players to Covid-19.
The European championship, which was postponed from 2020 because of the virus, is due to take place from June 11 to July 11.
