A rule change ahead of Euro 2020 meant that players who collected two bookings during the knockout stages could miss the semi-final but not the final. 

Ultimately, however, that never mattered, as no players were forced to sit out of the last four either. The 32 players on one booking after the last-16 matches behaved in exemplary fashion in the quarter-finals. 

Switzerland captain Granit Xhaka was the only player to miss the quarter-finals due to suspension, missing out as his nation lost on penalties to Spain. Harry Maguire, Sergio Busquets, and Thomas Delaney were among the players who could have potentially missed the semis, but they managed to stay on the referee's good side. 

EXPLAINED How do Euro 2020 suspensions work?

The players who collected the most cards throughout the tournament were as follows:

Three yellows, one red

Grzegorz Krychowiak, Poland
