Euro 2020 is taking shape. Four playoff qualifiers have yet to be decided, but the twenty teams that are already safely through, many of which feature Barça players in their ranks, were included in the draw held on Saturday in Romania.
And the bulk of the interest, not just for Barça but also most neutrals, is in Group F, where the last two world champions, France and Germany, are paired with European champions Portugal in what is being already dubbed the ‘Group of Death’.
For the first time, the finals are not being played in a single country but in twelve different cities right across the continent, with Wembley, London hosting the final.
Here’s what the groups look like:
Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Wales
Belgium, Russia, Denmark, Finland
Ukraine, Netherlands (Frenkie de Jong), Austria, +1 qualifier *
England, Croatia (Ivan Rakitic), Czech Republic, +1 qualifier **
Spain (Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto), Poland, Sweden, +1 qualifier ***
Germany (Marc Andre Ter Stegen), France (Samuel Umtiti, Clement Lenglet, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembélé), Portugal (Nelson Semedo), +1 qualifier *
Iceland, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary / Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus
**Scotland, Israel, Norway, Serbia
***Slovakia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland
