England will have to do things the hard way if they’re to end 55 years of hurt this summer. The Three Lions head into the European Championship as one of the teams to beat but a tricky path to the final has been set.

Group A: Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Wales
Group B: Belgium, Russia, Denmark, Finland
Group C: Ukraine, Netherlands, Austria, North Macedonia
Group D: England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland
Group E: Spain, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia
Group F: Germany, France, Portugal, Hungary

England & Scotland Group Dual Forecast


Last 16

If England win Group D they’ll progress to a last-16 tie against the runner-up from the Group of Death (France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary).

England vs Group F Runner-Up
June 29 @ 5pm
Wembley Stadium

A second-place finish in Group D would result in a fixture against the Group E runner-up (Spain, Sweden, Poland or Slovakia) – an arguably easier assignment.

England vs Group E Runner-Up
June 28 @ 5pm
Parken Stadium

There are four spots in the last 16 for the third-placed teams in the group stage with the best records – and three potential paths for England if they were to be a lucky loser.

England vs Group C Winner
June 27 @ 5pm
Puskas Arena


England vs Group B Winner
June 27 @ 8pm
Estadio de La Cartuja


England vs Group E Winner
June 29 @ 8pm
Hampden Park

England Eliminated In Round of 16


Right, it gets a bit messier from this point – if the third-placed lucky loser stuff hadn’t already thrown you.

If England win Group D and overcome a potentially nightmarish last-16 tie then unfortunately it’s not set to get any easier with Spain the most likely opponents in the last eight.

England vs Group E Winner or 3rd Group A/B/C/D
July 3 @ 8pm
Stadio Olimpico

The apparently easier path by finishing second in Group D pretty much merely delays the inevitable of facing France, Germany or Portugal assuming results go as expected.

England vs Group F Winner or 3rd Group A/B/C
July 2 @ 5pm
Krestovsky Stadium

If England finish third in Group D and beat the Group B winner in the last 16…

England vs Group A Winner or Group C Runners-Up
July 2 @ 8pm
Allianz Arena

If England finish third in Group D and beat the Group C winner in the last 16…

England vs Group A Runner-Up or Group B Runner-Up
July 3 @ 5pm
Baku Olympic Stadium

If England finish third in Group D and beat the Group E winner in the last 16…

England vs Group D Winner or Group F Runner-Up
July 3 @ 8pm
Stadio Olimpico
