Euro 2024 draw LIVE! England meet Denmark while Scotland handed tough test against Germany

Hosts Germany will face Scotland in the opening match of Euro 2024 in Munich following the draw on Saturday, while defending Champions Italy have been drawn in the same group as Spain.

The Germans, three-times winners, will kick off the one-month tournament in Munich on June 14, with the final on July 14 in Berlin's Olympic stadium.

The draw was held at the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, one of the 10 host cities of the tournament.

Germany will also face Hungary and Switzerland in Group A.

Italy face a tough task in defending their title, drawn in Group B where they will face Spain, Croatia and Albania.

France and the Netherlands will face each other again after coming through the qualifying campaign in the same group, drawn in Group D alongside Austria and the winner of playoff A.

England, beaten finalists in Euro 2020, are in Group C alongside Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia.

Group E sees Belgium take on Romania, Slovakia and the winners of playoff B, while Group F features Portugal, Turkey, Czech Republic and the playoff C winners.

The hosts qualified automatically and 20 teams advanced through the European qualifiers. Three teams are still unknown and will come through the playoffs in March.

The top two in each of the six Euro 2024 groups proceed to the round of 16 along with the four best third-placed finishers.

Euro 2024 draw: Gareth Southgate issues England selection warning

15:38 , Jonathan Gorrie

Gareth Southgate says he cannot afford to select players who are not fully fit in his Euro 2024 squad, and admitted he favours those who can play in multiple positions.

England can only name 23 players in their squad for next summer’s European Championship in Germany, having previously taken 26 to both the Euro 2020 tournament and 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Southgate named players who were returning from injury in his squads for both tournaments, with Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson selected for Euro 2020 and then Kyle Walker last winter, despite the trio missing the opening games as they fully shook off lingering issues.

Euro 2024 rivals will fear England, insists Ollie Watkins: 'We have that scare factor'

15:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

England will be feared at the Euros next summer despite their struggles against Malta and North Macedonia, says striker Ollie Watkins.

Gareth Southgate’s side rounded off their Euro 2024 qualification campaign with an uninspiring 1-1 draw here in Skopje on Monday night, having also laboured to a drab 2-0 win over Malta at Wembley on Friday. But the result ensured England will be among the top seeds when the draw for the Euros takes place on December 2.

They will be among the favourites in Germany next summer, and Watkins insists rival nations will be “scared” of them.

“I think we are in really good shape,” said Aston Villa striker Watkins, who was handed a rare start in place of Harry Kane against Macedonia but endured a frustrating night."

Euro 2024 draw: England in a race against time to secure top training base

15:08 , Jonathan Gorrie

England are in a race to secure one of Germany's best training camps for Euro 2024 next summer, with manager Gareth Southgate insistent on a private training base to avoid a repeat of the Baden-Baden fiasco at the 2006 World Cup.

The late-night partying and lack of regard for locals from England fans as well as many of the players’ wives, girlfriends and families turned England’s stay in the Black Forest spa town during Germany ’06 into somewhat of a farce.

England and the FA have opted for more serene, countryside training camps away from supporters and families since then. While Fabio Capello banned players’ families from seeing his squad at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Southgate has permitted it in a controlled way during his tenure, and will do so again.

Euro 2024 draw: England's best and worst case scenarios for group stage

15:00 , Jonathan Gorrie

England will learn their group-stage opponents for next summer's European Championship when the Euro 2024 draw takes place at Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie concert hall today.

The Three Lions breezed through qualifying unbeaten and it is a measure of their progress under Gareth Southgate that nothing short of winning next summer's Euros will be considered a success in what is expected to be the manager's final tournament.

As one the five group winners with the most points in qualifying, England are one of six top seeds for the tournament, joining hosts Germany in Pot 1 along with France, Belgium, Portugal and Spain.
