DIFFICULT England’s potential Euro 2020 group of death includes France and Portugal

England could potentially face France and Portugal in the group stages of Euro 2020.
The Three Lions qualified for next summer’s tournament with a 7-0 win over Montenegro last week , before ensuring a top seed place with a 4-0 victory in Kosovo.

However, England could still find themselves in a ‘group of death’ scenario when the finals get under way next summer.

The top ten qualifying group winners take the first ten positions in the draw, followed by the group runners-up, with all countries ranked by points, goal difference and goals scored.
The final four positions in the draw will be occupied by the winners of the Nations League play-offs in March.


 

However, there will be just six groups at Euro 2020 which means only the top six ranked teams can be seeded in Pot One.
Italy, England, Belgium, Spain and Ukraine have already booked their place in the premier Pot, having ranked first to fifth throughout the qualifying campaign, while Germany leapfrogged France to become the final Pot One seed by beating Northern Ireland.
