Euro 2020 seedings & draw was created by Urban Designer
Pot 1: Belgium, Italy, England, Germany, Spain, Ukraine

Pot 2: France, Poland, Switzerland, Croatia, Netherlands, Russia

Pot 3: Portugal, Turkey, Denmark, Austria, Sweden, Czech Republic

Pot 4: Wales, Finland, Play-off A, Play-off B, Play-off C, Play-off D

What a joke these seeding are. We could have England, France, Portugal & Wales in our group!

Group B already has Russia, Denmark, Belgium.

If Scotland qualify (don't think they will) they will be in England's group automatically.

If we win our group and avoid doing an Iceland in Round 2, we are likely to face Spain in the Quarter Finals in Rome.

If we come 2nd we will almost certainly face Germany in Round 2.

To be the best you should be prepared to beat whoever is in your way,

Would folk complain at a being in a Group with Switzerland, Austria and a Play-Off team? Doubtful...

Win or Lose, Up The Blues!

It is a joke that the World Champions France are in pot 2 and European Champions Portugal are in pot 3 though.

The whole point of being seeded is to keep the best teams apart until the knock out stages.

I cannot stand seeded cup competitions.

All cup competitions should be like the FA Cup draw, including the Champions League.

Who cares if four of the big clubs get grouped together and two of them make an early exit from the competition.

The big clubs, and they are the ones who make sure there are seedings.

Considering how uncompetitive much of the qualifying has been, with most of the top teams barely having to break sweat to qualify, personally I would think it would be a bit messed up if three big teams got drawn in the same group.
England are doing alright out of it though, to be fair, as they are getting to play all three group games at home.
You can only imagine that they would have to do very badly to fail to reach the last 16.
Thereafter it is a bit of luck as to whether the draw opens up kindly or not.
England very obviously aren’t the best in Europe at the moment and it’s nice to get through a few rounds so I don’t think it would be unreasonable to feel a bit cheesed off if they get paired with Germany (for example) in R2.

Scotland at home to Israel and then away to Serbia or Norway if they win.

Should beat Israel but can't see them winning the final. Norway are unbeaten at home for 3 years.

I think they'll beat Israel given they have home advantage and could see them nicking a win on pens in Norway. However if they have to go to Serbia I can see them losing by three or four.

Whatever happens glorious failure beckons.

Seems a bit of a farce - that there is only 1 group each team can go in.

Croatia from pot 2.

Easy enough Group, should top it, but will likely face one of Germany, France or Portugal in the Round of 16 in Dublin if they do...

Hate that teams are getting 3 home games. Doesn’t feel like a proper tournament, more like an extra qualifying group stage.

Yeah the group isn’t the whole story here.
Suppose what will be , will be but the reward for winning the group is tough in the extreme.
I don’t like this, personally.
France and Germany are two of the three teams that have totally dominated things for the last 25 years.
Comsidering how weak some of the teams have been , It is going to make for a dreadfully lopsided draw.

England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Serbia it is then. I think that's quite a competetive group and some people seem to forget Croatia wiped the floor with us in the WC Semi-Final.

I agree that having three home games is a bit stupid. Does that mean one team will have all their games away?

Unless your a Qualified Host Country, surely all your games are ‘Away’?

Only Group B has seen both its host Countries Qualify - Denmark and Russia - with the latter deemed the ‘Home’ team when they meet in Copenhagen!

If they wanted to do something special for their anniversary they could've chosen a venue like St Marks square in Venice and had a giant game of Bulldogs to chose the winner.

If we win the group which I think we will I can't see us getting past the second round which I think will be one of France & Germany.

Its a joke having us as favs just because the semis and final will be at Wembley. Id have France, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Netherlands and Italy ahead of us.

England don’t seem miles behind the top teams like they were a few years ago.
We have dangerous attacking players even if our defence is a bit ropey.
Some of the players that they have introduced to the squad have not impresssed but at our best we have some decent players.
However we would have to be underdogs v France or Germany in R2. Will seem a shame to get knocked out early when there is so much to like about the squad.

Our attack is as good as anyones but the top teams will punish our poor defence and Im not impressed with Pickford - seems erratic like Hart.

I think Jack Grealish could be the answer to our lack of a creative midfielder. I've been impressed with him as he's getting better and better.
