The group stage is over at Euro 2020, so it's time to crown our team of the round.

We've seen some fantastic individual performances so far this summer, and there are plenty of players who could have easily made the cut.

Here's 90min's team of the group stage.


1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Danny Ward (GK) - Few expected Wales to get out of the group stage, and if it wasn't for Ward, they probably wouldn't have. He was excellent in the first three games, with his best performance coming against Turkey.

Denzel Dumfries (RB) - Few players have seen their stock rise this summer quite like Dumfries. The Dutch wing-back has bagged two goals already and now finds himself linked to some of the biggest teams on the planet.

Leonardo Bonucci (CB) - Bonucci ensured Italy didn't concede a single goal in the groups, but more impressive than his defending was his ridiculous passing range. A real do-it-all defender.

Simon Kjaer (CB) - The real hero of Euro 2020, what Kjaer did for Christian Eriksen, Denmark and the entire world of football, cannot be understated. Plus, he was actually pretty good at football.

Robin Gosens (LB) - Gosens is the best left wing-back on the planet and has thoroughly lived up to that reputation so far. He tormented Portugal, bagging a goal and two assists.

2. Midfielders

Paul Pogba (DM) - Yet again, the France version of Pogba has been looking like one of the best players on the planet. He's done absolutely everything for Les Bleus.

Kevin De Bruyne (CM) - De Bruyne missed the first game and has been playing with a broken face, but he has still looked a step above the rest of the competition. Without his heroics against Denmark, Belgium wouldn't have bagged a 100% record.

Manuel Locatelli (CM) - Italy's midfield has been ridiculous so far, but the one player who has stood about among the crowd is Sassuolo man Locatelli, whose two goals against Switzerland won't be forgotten anytime soon.

Georginio Wijnaldum (AM) - Jeez, how fun is the attack-minded Wijnaldum? If PSG have watched his three-goal haul, they'll definitely be playing him in an advanced role next year.

3. Forwards

Cristiano Ronaldo

Romelu Lukaku (ST) - Living up to his billing as a Golden Boot favourite, Lukaku was unstoppable in the groups. He walked away with three goals, and only one man managed more.

Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) - Ronaldo leads the scoring charts with five goals, including three penalties and one of the most perfect counter-attacks you'll ever see. He's now tied with Ali Daei for the most goals in men's international football, and it's surely just a matter of time before he makes it his own.
