The 2016 European Championships take place from June 10 to July 10 in France, but Africa is not necessarily taking a backseat at Euro 2016.

There are a number of players of African descent who have chosen to play for European national teams rather than representing their African nations, and some of these will feature at the competition in France.

We profile 8 players and the national teams that they could be representing if they had chosen Africa over Europe.
