The qualification for Euro 2020 is coming to an end, with places in the tournament next summer still to win. The PA News Agency examines the countries that have already reserved a place and describes the situation in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
England Euro Cup 2020
After a sudden defeat by the Czech Republic by beating Bulgaria 6-0, Gareth Southgate’s team is about to qualify. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can book the Football Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.
England needs only one more point and qualifies in a draw against Montenegro on November 14 in Wembley, or if Kosovo bows against the Czech Republic the same day. They finish group A against Kosovo in Pristina on November 17th.
Republic of Ireland Euro Cup 2020
Despite losing to Switzerland, Mick McCarthy’s side remains in first place in Group D, tied for Denmark, although they played one more game.
With Switzerland also in the mix, Ireland must now take three points from the Danes in Dublin next month to qualify automatically.
Given their low position in the League of Nations, McCarthy’s men will be keen to seize this opportunity.
Scotland Euro Cup 2020
Steve Clarke’s men have no chance of being in the top two in Group I after losing five of their eight games. However, Scotland has the “second chance” way through the play-offs, which allowed them to win their League of Nations group.
The qualifying draws will take place on March 2020. Four places will be offered to the teams qualified for the semi-finals and the final, the ranking for the pairs being based on the performances of the League of Nations. As the winner of the highest-ranked League C group, Scotland will host a semi-final.
Wales Euro Cup 2020
The 1: 1 draw with Slovakia and Croatia left Ryan Giggs fourth in Group E, four points off second with one game less. The victories in their last two games, far from Azerbaijan and then Hungary, would allow Wales to take the lead and qualify for the seal unless Slovakia also wins its last two matches.
Manager Michael O’Neill had a brave face after defeating the Netherlands 3-1 in Rotterdam, where Northern Ireland took the lead before suffering a late collapse. A place for the play-offs remains a possibility and they can gain confidence after Monday’s friendly victory over the Czech Republic in Prague.
The subsequent victories of the top two Netherlands and Germany left Northern Ireland three points behind third-place, requiring an unlikely maximum of next month’s home games against the Dutch and Frankfurt to qualify for Group C.
Three-time European champions, Spain and Ukraine have become the last countries to carve a place in the tournament. Spain football lovers can get Spain Euro Cup Tickets online.
Italy, Russia, Belgium, and Poland also obtained their places.
World champions such as France, Portugal, the Netherlands, Germany, and Croatia are among the countries that still have work to do.
