It is fair to say that the Euro 2024 tournament has got off to a fantastic start! There has been plenty of great games to enjoy across the opening week or so of action.

And a number of Euro 2024 stars have seen their reputations in the football world increased.

In this article, we will take a look at ten of the Euro 2024 stars that have impressed the most over the first seven days of the tournament.

Remember, there’s still plenty of opportunities to enjoy a bet on the matches at Euro 2024. Bet365 Sport is offering an extensive range of bets for customers to enjoy on the tournament!

Let us now continue to take a look at the ten players that have caught the eye the most and who can be counted amongst the Euro 2024 stars of the tournament so far!

Euro 2024 Stars 

Jamal Musiala (Germany) – AMC

  • Club – Bayern Munich
  • Age – 21

Oh, how it hurts that he could have represented England! Musiala was a fixture in England youth teams for several years but elected to represent Germany, the country with which he does have more ties. 

Over the last few years he has developed into one of the finest young players in Europe, starring for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

He’s now stepped up at the international level with Germany, netting two goals in the Euros so far to be the tournaments leading goalscorer in the early stages.

However, it is his ability with the ball, to pick a pass or beat people with a mazy dribble that has been so impressive for the host nation in their two opening wins. 

Jude Bellingham (England) – AMC

  • Club – Real Madrid
  • Age – 20

Bukayo Saka played well, as did Marc Guehi but it was Jude Bellingham that stamped his class over the game when England beat Serbia 1-0. 

The Real Madrid midfielder has won La Liga and the Champions League this season and strutted around midfield like he owned the game at times. His first touch, vision and passing ability were all on display, as was his ability to beat a player in tight spaces.

Fittingly, he capped a very impressive display with England’s goal. Arriving late in the box to head home Bukayo Saka’s deflected cross to hand Gareth Southgate’s team a winning start. 

Arda Guler (Turkey) – AMLC

  • Club – Real Madrid
  • Age – 18

Kylian Mbappe’s arrival in Madrid this summer will draw plenty of attention but Real may already have a gem of a player in Turkey’s Arda Guler. The 18-year-old has already made a big impression at Real Madrid and his energetic display against Georgia caught the eye.

Quick, with great first touch, Guler finished off a fantastic performance by scoring the second goal for Turkey, curling home a 20 yard shot from the edge of the box past the despairing keeper.

That was his second goal in just eight caps for Turkey and aged just 18, he looks to have a very bright future in the game. 

Euro 2024 Stars

Nicolo Barella (Italy) – MC

  • Club – Inter Milan
  • Age – 27

After falling behind to a first-minute strike to Albania, Italy bounced back with two first half goals that proved to be the difference between the two teams. Their goals were scored by two stalwarts of the Inter Milan team that were Serie A champions. The first by defender Bastoni, the second a wonderful shot from distance by the brilliant Nicolo Barella.

The Inter midfielder controlled the game for Italy following Albania’s early strike and it was his prompting from midfield which led to Italy establishing dominance and winning the game. 

It was a Pirlo-esque performance from the best player on the pitch, and he will be key to Italy’s success in this tournament. 

Lamine Yamal (Spain) – AMR

  • Club – Barcelona
  • Age – 16

Now the youngest ever player to start a European Championships Finals game, Lamine Yamal’s incredible rise to fame continued with an excellent display in their 3-0 win over Croatia. He produced a mature display beyond his years and created Spain’s third goal with a superb cross into the box for Dani Carvajal to score.

If Yamal can score, he would be the youngest ever scorer in Euros history and few would bet against him doing so with Spain creating many chances against a decent Croatian side. 

Michel Aebischer (Switzerland) – DMLC

  • Club – Bologna
  • Age – 27

Michel Aebischer has had a very good season with Bologna, along with two of his Swiss team-mates. The Italian side qualified for the Champions League for the first time under Thiago Motta, which earned the manager a big money move to Juventus. 

Aebischer has continued his good form with Switzerland at this tournament. Proving to be an able performer at left back and in left midfield and surprising many with a lovely curled finish to the corner of the net past the Hungarian keeper. 

Nikola Milenkovic (Serbia) – DC

  • Club – Fiorentina
  • Age – 26

Harry Kane was unusually quiet for England in their win over Slovenia. He only had two touches of the ball in the first half and the main reason for that was the impressive display of Nikola Milenkovic of Serbia. Tall, powerful and very much in the mould of solid Serbia defenders of the past, Milenkovic was superb in nullifying Kane. 

The Serbian defender is the lynchpin of their defensive backline and part of the reason why Serbia have proven tough to score against in this tournament. 

Ondrej Duda (Slovakia) – AMC

  • Club – Hellas Verona
  • Age – 29

The veteran Slovakia midfielder oozed class in their surprise win over Belgium in their opening group game. He would often be the player to take a cleared ball, bring it down, control it and then bring in a team mate enabling Slovakia to break on Belgium. 

His quality has been evident for many years to those who follow European football, but at 29, many clubs may feel his best years are beyond him.

However, his performances so far have him down as one of the eyecatching Euro 2024 stars. 

N’Golo Kante (France) – DMC

  • Club – Al-Ittihad
  • Age – 33

At the last World Cup, France’s midfield looked likely to be built around the likes of Rabiot, Tchouameni and Camavinga. However, Didier Deschamps recalled N’Golo Kante to his Euro 2024 squad and it looks like a masterstroke.

At age 33, he was Frances most dynamic player in their 1-0 win over Austria. Kante has never been one to offer much going forward, but defensively he provided France with an abundance of cover, breaking up attacks and always available to receive a pass from a team-mate.

The move to Saudi Arabia may have enhanced his bank balance, but he remains the same quality defensive midfielder he always was. 

Milos Kerkez (Hungary) – ML

  • Club – Bournemouth
  • Age – 20

Hungary may have lost both their games but the marauding performances of left sided wing-back Milos Kerkez has been a bright spot for the not-so-mighty Magyars. The Bournemouth man is believed to be attracting interest from top Premier League clubs and it is easy to see why.

Solid defensively, Kerkez has also shown a fantastic engine to get up and down the pitch frequently during games and his excellent turn of pace has opponents scrambling.

He needs to work a little on his final ball and end product, but that will come with time and experience and after a good start in the Euros, that big money move may come this summer.
