EURO Cup 2020: France, Germany, Portugal drawn in ‘group of death’

Defending champions Portugal and the last two world champions, France and Germany, were drawn together in the same group in the Euro 2020 finals an obvious ‘group of death’ in Bucharest. Portugal Vs Germany Tickets  can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.

England were drawn against Croatia in a repeat of last year’s World Cup semi-final while other favourites were given a much easier ride in the 24-team tournament which will be played in 12 different countries across the region.

The clear pick of the six first round pools was Group F, to be played in Munich and Budapest, which pitted France, Portugal and Germany, plus the winners of either playoff A or D.

However, the sting was slightly taken away by the format which allows four of the six third-placed teams to qualify for the round of 16.

UEFA’s decision to rank the teams according to their result in the qualifiers, combined with Portugal’s performance in their group, meant they ended up among the third seeds while France were one of the second seeds.

“This is a group of death,” said Loew whose side will play all three games at home under competition rules. “The expectations will be quite high. For our young team, this will be huge challenge but also a big motivation.”

England and Croatia, who have met in the Nations League since Croatia’s 2-1 win in Moscow last year, will be joined in Group D by the Czech Republic and the winners of playoff C — either Scotland, Norway, Serbia or Israel.

The Group D winners will face the runners-up from Germany’s group in the round of 16 while the second-placed team will travel to Copenhagen to meet the Group E runners-up — potentially an easier match. Euro 2020 Fans from all over the world can buy Group F Euro 2020 Tickets online.

The Group will be played in London — host for the semi-finals and final — and Glasgow. Other favourites were given a much easier-looking ride.

Italy, who won all 10 qualifying games as they bounced back from failing to make the last World Cup, will face Turkey, Wales and Switzerland in Group A, in Rome and Baku.

“We have a slight advantage by playing at home. Maybe some will think we are favourites but we need to confirm everything on the pitch, as always,” Italy coach Roberto Mancini said.

Euro 2008 and 2012 champions Spain, who will jointly host Group E in Bilbao with Dublin, play Sweden, Poland and playoff winner B — either Bosnia, Slovakia, Ireland or Northern Ireland.

Belgium’s opponents in Group B will be Denmark and Russia —who are both host nations — and Finland, who will be making their first appearance in a European Championship or World Cup.

The Netherlands, who like Italy missed out on the last World Cup, were pitted against Ukraine, Austria and playoff winner A or D in Group C, which will be played in Amsterdam and Bucharest.

Under the complex rules, all host nations will play their group games at home, meaning a number of teams had been allocated their groups before the draw

“The rules are clear, they were accepted by everybody,” said UEFA deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti.

“Portugal are in pot three because they didn’t win their group, and the winner of their group was Ukraine. And Ukraine, thanks to their results, are in pot one, and everybody accepts it because once again we have clear rules.”

Euro 2020 preparations: England line up Denmark friendly at Wembley

Gareth Southgate’s England team will play Denmark in the second of two March friendlies at Wembley – with the Football Association yet to confirm who will be the first of England’s opponents in the build-up to Euro 2020.

The England manager has stressed the importance of playing first-rate opposition when the team reconvenes for the first time next year, with his belief that the winners of the European Championships will come from a group of seven leading nations.

The FA says the team will play two further home games away from Wembley in June prior to the start of the competition, as well as another further afield in Europe.

Southgate has said he believes that, along with England, the key European nations challenging to win next summer are world champions France, as well as Spain, Italy, Holland, Portugal, Croatia, and No 1 Fifa-ranked nation Belgium.

The England manager has said that it is important his side is tested against the best opposition, especially having had what he regarded as a simple qualifying campaign, one defeat to the Czech Republic aside.

At 14th, Denmark, who qualified for Euro 2020 with a draw on Tuesday with the Republic of Ireland, are currently above Italy and Germany in the Fifa rankings. England will play the Danes on the evening of Tuesday, March 31.

The draw for the group stage of Euro 2020 will take place in Bucharest a week on Saturday. UEFA announced Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Russia in Group B. EURO 2020 fans ready to buy Group B Euro Cup Tickets.

Speaking last week, Southgate said that it could be difficult to arrange friendlies with the best opposition in March.

“Some of the European teams will be difficult to tie down because of play-offs, and some of them don’t want to play us,” he said.

It’s not a straightforward thing. We’re going to have to be a little bit open-minded while we’re doing that.

“But I think sometimes the emotion of … [for example] you draw Ivory Coast [at a World Cup] and you play Tunisia because, of course, they’re African. I’m not so sure that it is really relevant for some. I think we just want good quality opposition who are going to test you in every aspect of your game.”

Euro Cup Round of 16 – What stances in the way of England winning Euro 2020?

Gareth Southgate will need to shore up a shaky defence, as England gets ready to take on the big guns on home soil next summer, says John Duerden. England has not won a major international tournament since Queen Elizabeth II presented captain Bobby Moore the World Cup at Wembley Stadium in 1966.

But current captain Harry Kane is in with a chance of lifting his country’s second major prize into the London sky next summer – especially if certain issues can be fixed as England hosts the final of the Euro 2020 Championships (Euro 2020).

Among Bookies’ Favourites

Most bookmakers, in the United Kingdom at least, have England as the 2nd favourites to be European champions behind 2018 World Cup winner France and above Belgium, number one in the world according to FIFA’s rankings. 2nd billing may be slightly optimistic but there is no doubt that England is in the mix.

While France won the World Cup in 2018. Euro 2020 fans can book France Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices. Kane returned from Russia with the Golden Boot, the prize awarded to the tournament’s top scorer.

Attacking Prowess

The Tottenham Hotspur headliner is one of the most prolific strikers in the world but is just one weapon in England’s enviable attacking arsenal that scored 37 goals in 8 qualification games. Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, another of England’s attacking stars, contributed eight.

Many of England’s young players, such as Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Ross Barkley of Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, form a strong offence. In the penultimate qualifier, a 4-0 win in Kosovo, emerging Premier League stars Mason Mount and Harry Winks scored their first goals.

Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham also scored his first goal in England’s 7-0 win over Montenegro earlier. All are playing for some of the best clubs in Europe and getting tested every week.

Who’s the boss?

The English media has at times in the past made playing for England miserable by building unreasonable expectations and then doling out vicious criticism when they were not met. It has been gentler and kinder on Southgate’s young team, however.

England has had talented players before but the national team is a different beast these days. The so-called golden generation that came together at the start of the previous decade was one such example. This team included Manchester United favourites David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand.

Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen and Chelsea’s Frank Lampard and John Terry were also included in this list. Yet, they never truly delivered. Members have admitted that the fierce rivalries they enjoyed at club level resulted in national team cliques and reduced its effectiveness.

Southgate, who was appointed as head coach in November 2016 shortly after the disaster of the Euro Championships in France when England exited at the 2nd  round after a humiliating loss to Iceland has worked hard to create a solid team spirit.

The softly-spoken tactician has built a calm and mature atmosphere, treating the players as adults and there seems to be mutual respect. That still seems to be the case despite a well-publicised event in November. In a top-of-the-table English Premier League game, Liverpool’s Joe Gomez and Raheem Sterling of Manchester City clashed on the pitch as players do every weekend.

Wales Euro 2020 Qualify – Zinedine Zidane’s Reaction to Gareth Bale’s

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has refused to punish Gareth Bale after his controversial flag celebration mocked the Spanish club, according to reports.

But Bale, who wanted to leave Madrid in the summer, caused friction with Los Blancos supporters as he celebrated with his international teammates while holding a flag that said: “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Zidane won’t take personal action with Bale upon his return from international duty and is more focused with his performances in a Madrid shirt.

‘Zizou,’ who told Bale he could leave Los Blancos in the summer, doesn’t want to add any further strain on his relationship with the Madrid wantaway.

While Zidane is willing to overlook the controversy, Bale could receive a hostile reception from Madrid supporters upon his return. However, the Spanish media have been brutal towards the former Spurs ace and slammed him for his behaviour on the pitch.

Spanish publication Madrid Sports tweeted a video of the incident and wrote: We have always defended you, Gareth Bale.

“But enough is enough. As it says on the flag, you are laughing at Madrid.”

Journalist Manu Sainz added: “Bale knows he will be able to leave Madrid in January if he forces a move, but this is getting out of hand.”

And another reporter, Ruben Martin, called out the Wales international for “laughing at Madrid” and said he “doesn’t deserve to wear the shirt.”

Bale, whose current deal expires in 2022, has managed seven appearances across all competitions for Madrid this season.

And the Welshman was on the verge of leaving Madrid in the summer for a move to the Chinese Super League, only for the deal to collapse in late July.

At the bottom end, there’s the League D playoff, which is guaranteed to hand one team its debut at a major championship of Euro 2020. Georgia and Belarus have held a place in that small playoff and will be expected to be joined by Kosovo and North Macedonia.

The highest division almost certainly won’t have enough unqualified teams to make a 4 team bracket, so we will recruit extras from lower tiers. That could hand League A’s Iceland a fortunate draw with League C teams such as Bulgaria and Israel.

Like with having 2 host teams in the same playoff path, this also goes for if there is a prohibited clash that could occur.

Gareth recalls Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers

Gareth Southgate has recalled Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, John Stones and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo. Fans from all over the world can buy England Euro Cup Tickets online.

The England manager has also included Mason Mount, despite concerns over an ankle injury he sustained in Chelsea’s Champions League tie against Ajax, which means that Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish misses out.

There is a relief for James Maddison who has been selected by Southgate despite the manager being concerned at the Leicester City midfielder being photographed at a casino the day after he withdrew from the last England squad through illness.

As expected Stones is selected having returned to the Manchester City team of late with Michael Keane missing out. The central defender played poorly in England’s 2-1 defeat away to the Czech Republic and has also recently lost his place at Everton.

Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori and Villa’s Tyrone Mings keen their places as does Ross Barkley which will come as a relief to the midfielder who has not started any of Chelsea’s last five matches.

Despite an apparent return to form there is no place for Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli in the 27-man squad with Southgate also resisting the temptation to include Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

England can seal qualification with at least a draw against Montenegro at Wembley which will also be their 1,000th international.
