Familiar Foes For England At Euro 2020

Last updated : 30 November 2019 By Three Lions

England have been drawn alongside Croatia and the Czech Republic at next year's Euro 2020 tournament with Group D also set to contain the winner of the play-off path containing Scotland, Norway, Serbia and Israel.

Gareth Southgate will feel reasonably content with the draw, especially as the Three Lions will play their group stage fixtures at Wembley and could have been paired with the likes of France and Portugal.

Croatia, England's conquerors at Russia 2018 but then beaten to the finals of the Nations League later the same year and the Czech Republic, part of England's Euro 2020 qualifying group, will both be familiar foes to Southgate.

He said after the draw in Bucharest: "We have played two of the teams before and for us to play at Wembley is something special. We are looking forward to the tournament.

"We have to accept that expectations have changed from where we were. We are very critical of ourselves. We would rather be a team that are fancied than a team with no chance."
