Madness in Group F: Euro 2020 draw produces a cracker

0

The European Championship groups have been drawn this weekend and group F is sure to deliver entertainment with GermanyFrance and Portugal finding themselves together.

It’s already been named the competition’s ‘group of death’ and rightly so given it contains the last two World Cup winners and the current European and Nations League champions.

Germany have a slight advantage though, as they’ll play each of their three games at home.

Group A: Turkey, Italy, Wales and Switzerland

Italy will also play each of their three group games on home soil and that’ll make them favourites to top a tricky group.

Turkey impressed in qualification, Gareth Bale’s Wales showed their ability in the last European Championship and the Swiss are a solid side.

Group B: Denmark, Finland, Belgium and Russia

Belgium are clearly the favourites here for the group, and arguably the competition. Finland will be hoping to make a real impression while we know what Denmark and Russia can do.

Group C: Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, and Qualification Path D

The Dutch may be the best performing national team in Europe at the moment and they were runners up in the Nations League. They’ll be favourites despite their youth. Ukraine look good under Andriy Shevchenko and Austria will want to compete.

Group D: England, Croatia, Qualification Path C and Czech Republic

England and Croatia will back themselves to progress from this group, particularly Gareth Southgate’s side after another impressive qualification campaign.

Group E: Spain, Sweden, Poland and Qualification Path B

This group will be played between Bilbao and Dublin, and either Ireland or Northern Ireland could yet make it. Spain will fancy themselves, but Poland and Sweden can’t be ruled out.
