Euro 2020: Who Will England Face In Qualifying?

While the memories of this year's World Cup may still be a bit raw for England fans, this afternoon the Euro 2020 qualifying draw took place today.

Gareth Southgate's team have avoided Germany which used to be a good thing but given Germany's recent form, we're not so sure.

Northern Ireland were not so lucky and must face the Netherlands in Group C, three-time winners of the competition. Although the Dutch were notable by their absence at the World Cup, their recent Nations League form suggests they are looking good again under Ronald Koeman.

The Czech Republic are also in England's group as are Bulgaria, Montenegro and Kosovo.

Northern Ireland will also face home and away fixtures against Estonia and Belarus.

The Republic of Ireland were initially in Group C but as the group already contained two of the 12 host nations for Euro 2020 they ended up in Group D along with Switzerland, Denmark, Georgia and Gibraltar.

Fellow hosts Scotland will play Belgium, Russia, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and San Marino. Ryan Giggs Wales will meet beaten World Cup finalists Croatia, Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan.

The Euro 2020 qualifiers take place between March and November 2019. The winner and runner-up of each group go through automatically.

The qualifying process is unusual because of this year's Uefa Nations League group games. England and Scotland are guaranteed a Euro 2020 play-off place - should they fail to qualify via their regular qualifying group - after winning their Nations League section.

Wembley stages both semi-finals and the final of Euro 2020 along with three group games and a last-16 match.

Hampden Park and the Aviva Stadium in Dublin will each host three group games and a last-16 match.
