Euro 2020 Qualifiers

Recommended Posts

The draw is set to start now, with England included in the top seeds.

To be played in 12 different countries for the first time.

 

 

According to statisticians Gracenote, England have a 95% chance of reaching the tournament. They say there is an 8% chance they will need to play their already guaranteed play-off.

Wales just make the top 20 most likely qualifiers with a 63% chance of progressing.

And Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland are rated among the 16 teams most likely to end in the play-offs.'

In all seriousness, England should get out of that group with consummate ease. Probably without losing a game, as well.

Some tasty neighbor duels in there - in particular Germany and the Netherlands in the same group, but also Slovakia - Hungary and Sweden - Norway, plus Austria - Slovenia and - on a smaller level - Norway vs. Faroe Islands. Don't know what Italy's and Greece's feelings are towards each other.

ROI were fortunate to get bumped in to Group D despite being drawn before Northern Ireland. Instead Northern Ireland get to face Netherlands and Germany lol

That may turn out to be true Stan but the bottom two seeds England pulled out are possibly the two they'd rather have avoided.

England should still qualify but I'd rather have had Lichtenstein and Luxembourg, as Portugal have or Albania and Moldova, as France have, than Montenegro and Kosovo.

Avoiding Germany is something to probably be pleased about in a way but I'd rather have any other top seeds bottom two than the ones we have got.

Do the top two go through or just the top one? Croatia and Slovakia winnable at home if Bale and Rambo play, not sure about away though. 

 

Knowing us we'll beat those two and lose in Hungary with Bale and Ramsey "injured" mind.

For the smaller groups, only top spot. Top 2 in the other larger groups and then play-offs for 3rd spot I think? 

 

I'm still confused as to the format to be honest.

Pretty sure it's two from each group regardless of size isn't it?

 

 

Edit - It's definitely the top two from each group that qualifies.

The Euro 2020 qualifiers will take place between March and November 2019, with the winner and runner-up of each group going through directly.

The qualifying process is condensed because of this year's Uefa Nations League group games, with England and Scotland guaranteed a Euro 2020 play-off place - should they fail to qualify via their regular qualifying group - after winning their Nations League section

I would have preferred to draw Montengro and Kosovo as Southgate will learn much more about his side from these matches instead of likes of Lichtenstein.

I get that point. Call me old fashioned but I'd rather just qualify first. We shouldn't muck it up but I'd still rather have Lichtenstein.

 

Sickener for Northern Ireland. All the others have a decent chance. I fancy Wales to get there. Scotland have to beat Russia to 2nd which is far from impossible, I don't fancy them at all if there's a play off scenario though, regardless of the opposition.

ROI's group looks sticky to me.

Excellent draw, winning the group should be a formality and nice to play a few countries we haven't played in a while (Czech Republic and Bulgaria) and a new one (Kosovo).

Thinking of getting tickets for the husband for Christmas for the Czech Republic match. Been to Wembley a couple of times before, but never for the football. Any tips? (Beyond not to bother! :P)

If England can’t take 12 points from Kosovo & Montenegro (with all due respect) we don’t deserve to make the tournament. We should win the group without losing a game, really. Even coming 2nd I would be disappointed.
