Good Euro 2024 Draw For England

England Tickets

A good Euro 2024 draw for England, who enter the tournament as one of the favorites. Gareth Southgate’s side will face Serbia, Slovenia and Denmark.

On paper, the Three Lions should top this group, and they beat Denmark on the way to the final at Euro 2020.

They face off on matchday two, which will no doubt be the one to watch but an opening day fixture against Serbia will be no easy match for Southgate’s men.

England fans will want to keep an eye on Serbia’s clash against Denmark on June 25, when the Three Lions face Slovenia to finish the group.

Former England striker Alan Shearer said Southgate will be “extremely happy” with the draw, with Serbia and Slovenia outside the world’s top 30, while 1992 champions Denmark are ranked 19th.

“I don’t think England can complain with that group,” Shearer said. “I think it’s pretty favourable when you look at some of the teams that have been drawn out against each other.”

Despite it not appearing the toughest group, Southgate says all the teams in Group C are “more than capable”.

“You can look at it on paper, but the games aren’t played on paper,” Southgate said.

England will have arguably the most straightforward group ahead of them, the route should be tougher for the Three Lions from the quarterfinals onwards. A third-placed side from Group D, E or F in the round of 16 should set up a quarterfinal with a runner-up from Spain, Italy and Croatia’s Group B or Germany, Scotland or Switzerland’s Group A. Make it through that and it is a potential semifinal against the winner of either France’s Group D or Belgium’s Group F. Do not forget that Portugal might not top Group F which could add a further wrinkle.
