  • UEFA Draw Euro 2020 Qualification Groups

Back in the summer Gareth Southgate and his men almost brought football home, of course if football was actually the friends we made along the way then it did come home, or more like the enemies considering how irked everyone was by the song. You could say the group is less hard because Germany are not there but that would not be true.

Joining them in Group A are: Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Kosovo.

No team will qualify automatically as hosts, although every host country that qualifies will be guaranteed two home games in the group phase, with the final being held at Wembley Stadium.

Defending champions Portugal were drawn against Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania and Luxembourg, with world champions France playing Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova and Andorra.

"We need to improve and get back to being among the top teams".

"When England come to Pristina it will be the biggest event in the history of football in Kosovo", Kosovo coach Bernard Challandes said. The hosts of Sunday's draw were paired with Switzerland, Denmark, Georgia and Gibraltar.

Azerbaijan were initially drawn in Ireland's group but as they are also a host nation - and Ireland and Denmark were already in the group - Gibraltar were drawn as an alternative.

What to expect from the G20 meeting between Trump and Xi
Trump and Xi are scheduled to meet on Saturday to discuss trade amid increasing tensions between the world's top two economies. But Kudlow also said the White House has been disappointed so far in China's response to trade issues with the United States.

Group H: France, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova, Andorra.

Scotland also have a play-off backstop, in this unprecedently complicated qualification process, but will have to get past both Belgium and Russian Federation if they are to qualify directly from Group I. Alex McLeish's team will also face Cyprus, Kazakhstan and San Marino.

Group F: Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands, Malta.

Group J: Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Finland, Greece, Armenia, Liechtenstein.

The fixture list will now be compiled later this afternoon, and with Ireland in a group of five, McCarthy's side will play just eight matches before the end of 2019 to determine whether they can take one of the 20 places on offer through these qualifying stages.

The 24-team lineup will be completed in March 2020 when the last four places at the tournament are decided through a new playoff system.
