Did nobody care that the qualifying draw took place yesterday? Maybe that's a side effect of the tournament getting bloated and the majority of teams you'd expect to qualify will almost certainly do so without breaking a sweat.
I'm rather hoping Russia are beatable, but at least for once Scotland haven't been drawn with Germany, Italy or France like normally happens
Biggest problem was this draw was even more convoluted that usual. Take for example that N.Ireland are in a group with Germany and Netherlands despite the fact that ROI were the team drawn. Reason being that Netherlands, Germany and ROI are hosts and UEFA want to maximise the qualification chances of all hosts so only 2 hosts can be in the same pool.
That and as HB said, the success of the Nations League rather overshadows the trudge of the ECQ.
Group A: England, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Kosovo. Group B: Portugal, Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania, Luxembourg. Group C: Netherlands, Germany, Northern Ireland, Estonia, Belarus. Group D: Switzerland, Denmark, Republic of Ireland, Georgia, Gibraltar. Group E: Croatia, Wales, Slovakia, Hungary, Azerbaijan. Group F: Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands, Malta. Group G: Poland, Austria, Israel, Slovenia, Macedonia, Latvia. Group H: France, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova, Andorra. Group I: Belgium, Russia, Scotland, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, San Marino. Group J: Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Finland, Greece, Armenia, Liechtenstein
How do the play-offs fit in?
Each separate League (A, B, C and D) in the UEFA Nations League has been allocated one UEFA EURO 2020 place. Four sides from each League will contest single-leg semi-finals and a one-off final (entirely specific to the EURO) in March 2020. The winner of each of these four one-off finals gets a ticket to UEFA EURO 2020.
In theory, the play-offs are contested by the four winners of the quartet of groups that form each of the four Leagues. However, if a UEFA Nations League group winner has already qualified via the European Qualifiers, their spot goes to the next best-ranked team in their League.
