Euro 2020 is upon us and with club football taking a backseat for a month West Ham fans can turn their attention to the international game.
There is plenty to keep Hammers supporters interested throughout the Euro’s with five West Ham players in action and many more players to ‘scout’ ahead of potential summer transfers.

Next up from the Hammers, on the same day, is Andriy Yarmolenko who will be aiming to win his 95th international cap when Ukraine face the Netherlands at 5pm in Group C.
At 5pm on the same day Lukasz Fabianski is the final Hammer in action when Poland begin their tournament with a clash against Slovakia in Group E.
There will be a minimum of 11 matches in Euro 2020 featuring the nations of West Ham players with more in store if teams progress from the group stages. Here is a rundown of all the group games for the Hammers contingent.
