England drew against North Macedonia last night, but the match held no significance for them as they had already secured their spot in the European Championship long ago. The English lost only four points in the qualifiers and are looking very strong ahead of the tournament. As always, the English welcome big competitions with great optimism.
Before the qualifiers come to a close, England’s media are predicting who they would like to face in their group and who they would prefer to avoid at all costs. On SkySports, they tried to find the perfect group for their national team. Let’s take a look at some possible scenarios for England if they end up in a group with Albania, Slovenia, and Serbia.
SkySports has revealed that Croatia is one of the teams England would love to avoid in their group. On the other hand, Denmark, Netherlands, and Croatia are considered to be the most difficult opponents for them if they were drawn together. England and Croatia were both part of the same group at the last European Championship, and England won 1-0 against them then. If Croatia wins tonight against Armenia and goes through additional qualifications, there is a possibility that they could finish in a fourth strong group or even higher depending on how well they do in their final games against Italy and France.
It’s important to note that these are just predictions as no strength groups have been set yet. The draw for Euro 2020 will take place on December 2nd so let’s wait until then to see which teams will be playing together
