The Greece Euro 2024 squad will come around sooner than you think, as Gus Poyet aims to guide the country to next summer's tournament in Germany.

It's been almost 20 years since Greece pulled off one of the greatest shocks in football history by winning Euro 2004 – but they've failed to qualify for either of the last two European Championships.

They're in the mix to make it this time around, though, despite sharing a qualifying group with France and the Netherlands.

Having managed at club level in England, Spain, China, France, Chile and Greece, Gus Poyet took charge of the Greek national team in 2022.

In the 2022 Nations League, the former Chelsea, Tottenham and Uruguay midfielder got Greece promoted to League B – the second tier of the competition.

One of the few Greece regulars playing their club football in a top European league, Liverpool left-back Kostas Tsimikas has earned 32 caps for his country.

Three times a Greek champion with Olympiacos before his move to Anfield, he made his senior international debut in 2018.


How many players are Greece allowed to take to Euro 2024?

We don't know just yet – but expect 26. 

It was announced that 26-player squads will return for the Qatar World Cup, an expansion from the usual 23-man teams.

National managers were allowed to bring 26 players to 2021's European Championship for the first time at a major tournament, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the fixture congestion, the expanded squads returned for the World Cup.
