Germany

Anika Bissel – wife of Manuel Neuer

THE Germany and Bayern Munich icon knows a keeper when he sees one – and he found his No1 when he met handball player Anika.

She’s not the first to tie the knot with the 38-year-old as the legendary stopper was previously married to Nina Weiss for three years before they separated in 2020.

But he’s now loved up with 23-year-old Anika and the couple are ready to start a new chapter of their life together after they got secretly married in 2023.

And there’ll be another family member surely decked out in German colours when the tournament gets underway after they gave birth to their baby boy Luca in April.

Daniela ter Stegen – wife of Marc-Andre ter Stegen

THE Barcelona star is another goalie who has found a catch off the pitch after finding his safe pair of hands in architect and social media influencer Daniela.

He might be the breadwinner in the family but she has a busy career of her own after recently graduating from university with a degree in architecture in Spain, while her partner stayed between the sticks in Barcelona.

Boasting a huge following of 600,000 on Instagram, she regularly posts heartwarming pics of Marc-Andre around the house and from their various trips abroad.

And just like his team-mate Neuer, they also welcomed a new member of their family this year with young Tom born in February, giving their eldest son Ben a younger brother.

Jessica Kroos – wife of Toni Kroos

KNOWN for his unbelievable passing ability, Toni’s arguably best ever pick out was when he found his wife Jessica in 2008.

Now nine years married following their intimate wedding in June 2015, she has been by his side throughout his full career, celebrating with him as he’s won just about everything on offer.

And she’ll be hoping for a perfect finish for her hubby this summer after he revealed he will hang up his boots when the tournament is over.

The midfielder is a veteran in the Germany team with 108 caps to his name, and she has bags of experience being a Wag for international tournaments – joining him at three World Cups and her third Euros this summer.

And with over 185,000 followers on Instagram, she uses her platform to spread awareness for various charities and is a philanthropist, helping her husband launch their charity for sick children ‘The Toni Kroos Foundation’ in 2015.

A TWO-time Champions League winner and 2014 World Cup champion, Thomas Muller will be looking to add the Euros to his collection this summer.

His wife has been through it all so she won’t be a stranger when it comes to the big events.

And Lisa has competed in many herself as she’s a professional dressage rider who is ranked in the top 100 in the world with eight major wins across her career.

Unlike many of her fellow Wags, Lisa keeps her relationship with the footie legend relatively quiet as her social media pages are mostly decked out with pics from her own sporting career instead of her personal life.

Sophia Weber – girlfriend of Kai Havertz

SHE was forced to swap her Chelsea shirt for an Arsenal kit when her boyfriend made the switch across London last summer.

But the German model will only be wearing one top when her partner lines up for the Euros in June.

The lovebirds have known each other since a young age having grew up in the same neighbourhood and started out as friends before becoming romantically attached in 2018.

The social media, fashion and travel influencer has 395,000 followers on Instagram compared to her partner with 6.5million but she likes to keep him grounded despite the celebrity status, with Kai revealing in April 2023 that she always tells him to load the dishwasher and do his chores at home.

Sara Gundogan – wife of Ilkay Gundogan

SARA will no doubt be spotted by the TV cameras watching on from the stands when Ilkay takes on Scotland in the tournament opener.

But that won’t faze her as she’s no stranger to being on TV, having enjoyed a successful career on screen as an actress and presenter – as well as professional model.

Born in France before later moving to Italy, she might have a decision to make if Germany meet either of her home nations later in the competition.

But when it comes to the group stage, she will only have one country in mind when her partner – who she married in 2021 – lines up for the opener against Scotland on June 14.

Candice Brooke – girlfriend of Leroy Sane

THE 28-year-old winger has plenty of experience winning trophies in his homeland Germany.

But he is more than used to celebrating title wins without his loved one in recent years as his American girlfriend Candice doesn’t live in Germany and stays in London instead.

The model, singer and social media influencer revealed last year that it’s “impossible” to live with her partner in Munich and she needs to raise their two kids Rio Stella and Milo in England instead.

But chances are that she’ll make exceptions over the next few weeks and will likely make a special trip to Europe to give the Bayern Munich star all the support he needs throughout the campaign.


Switzerland

Alina Sommer – wife of Yann Sommer

The last Euros was very hectic for this couple

ALINA will be hoping it’s a Sommer of success for her husband in Germany.

But the Tartan Army will instead be wishing for Sommertime Sadness for the Switzerland No1 after they go head-to-head on June 19.

Alina turned heads when she was spotted in the stands at the 2022 World Cup as she watched her partner between the sticks with their eldest daughter Mila by their side.

But she couldn’t attend the last Euros as she actually gave birth to their second child during the tournament, with the goalie leaving the squad following their group defeat to Italy to be by her side before making a mad dash and returning just in time to beat Turkey 3-1 just days later.

Melanie Akanji – wife of Manuel Akanji

THE Manchester City defender will be a key player for Switzerland at the Euros and will be doing his homework over the coming weeks to learn everything he needs to know about Scotland’s strike force.

And he could call on his wife Melanie to help him as she’s an expert when it comes to knowing things inside out – through her years working as an interior designer.

The 28-year-old is an expert in her field having studied at the world-renowned International School of Geneva, before moving to New York to expand her portfolio with a bachelor’s degree at NYU.

Now living with Manuel in Manchester with their two kids – Aayden and Keeyan Lamar Ayodele – with another on the way after they announced they’re expecting for a third time on May 17.

Leonita Xhaka – wife of Granit Xhaka

IT’s been an unforgettable season for the former Arsenal star after leading Xabi Alonso‘s Bayer Leverkusen to an almost perfect season – losing just one game against Atalanta in the Europa League final.

He stays in Germany this summer and will be hoping to round off the unbelievable campaign with some Euros success.

But the veteran midfielder is already winning off the pitch with his stunning wife Leonita, who he has been with ever since his Borussia Monchengladbach days.

Granit might be the famous one in the family but she boasts a huge fanbase of her own with over 200,000 followers on Instagram.


Hungary

Fanni Gecsek – girlfriend of Dominik Szoboszlai

THE Liverpool star, 23, will be Hungary’s star man this summer and will be hoping to make his mark in his first international tournament.

And this blonde beauty will be cheering him and on and has been since they met in 2020, while also completing her business degree and juggling modelling assignments.

Born in Budapest, they first caught eyes when the talented star was playing for Red Bull Salzburg.

And she knows what it takes to be an athlete, having excelled at tennis when she was younger and competed in various IFT Tournaments between 2017 and 2019.

She seemed destined for a life on the court but she stepped away from that career and become an influencer instead.

Diana Gulacsi-Vigh – wife of Peter Gulacsi

THE RB Leipzig stopper is planning to make it a tournament to remember this summer.

But when it comes to making plans, it’s his wife Diana who is the expert as she’s made a successful career herself as a wedding planner in Germany.

That’s not all, however, as she is also an avid blogger who gives advice on all things from relationships, traveling and how to deal with pregnancy.

And she will no doubt be using her platform to cheer on her partner when he steps between the sticks for the upcoming three group games at the very least.

But Clarke’s men will be hoping his tournament is all over after their clash with the Hungarians in Stuttgart on June 23.
