England secure their place at UEFA EURO 2020

England’s qualification for UEFA EURO 2020 is done and dusted so Gareth Southgate’s attention can, finally, turn to the finals next summer.

Thursday’s crushing 7-0 victory over Montenegro confirmed England’s place in Group D by virtue of being a host nation and they’ll play all three of their group matches at Wembley.

Southgate’s men will play on Sunday 14th June, Friday 19th June and Tuesday 23rd June against opponents determined by the draw on Saturday 30th November. The four play-off winners won’t be known until March.

Should they progress England would face a Second Round date in Dublin (as group winners) or Copenhagen (as runners-up), followed by a potential quarter-final in Rome or St Petersburg.

Go any further than that and home advantage really would come into play.

England’s semi-final – should they get there – would take place at Wembley. Our national stadium will also host the final on Sunday 12th July.
