Clyde1998 In other news, the seeding for the Euro 2024 finals have been confirmed:
Pot 1: Germany; Portugal; France; Spain; Belgium; England
Pot 2: Hungary; Turkey; Romania; Denmark; Albania; Austria
Pot 3: Netherlands; Scotland; Croatia; Slovenia; Slovakia; Czech Republic
Pot 4: Italy; Serbia; Switzerland; Play-Off Winner A (Poland; Wales; Estonia; TBD); Play-Off Winner B (Israel; Bosnia; TBD; TBD); Play-Off Winner C (Georgia; Greece; Kazakhstan; Luxembourg)

The teams to be allocated to a play-off path are Finland, Ukraine and Iceland.

Some pretty brutal groups could be formed: any Pot 1 side; Austria/Hungary/Denmark; Netherlands/Croatia; Italy would be insane.

On the flip side: any Pot 1 side; Romania/Albania; Slovenia/Slovakia; Play-Off Winner A/C would be almost as straight forward as you could get in the group stage.

Are the seedings based upon world rankings? Amazing that Albania can be pot 2 while Croatia are pot 3 and Italy pot 4. Definitely a group of death in there.
It's based upon performance in qualifying. The hosts and best five qualifying group winners are in Pot 1; the remaining qualifying group winners are in Pot 2 with the best second placed side, etc.

England (or anyone from Pot A), Denmark, Netherlands and Italy would be a bit of a nightmare.

But also great value. You'd be well up for every group game and I'd still back us to top it.

For sure, think we'd probably end up coming second in that group, behind Netherlands.

Not sure it does - that game is D4 v D1 - teams in pot 1 will not necessarily be team D1 as each side is drawn in a group and then given a spot in the group.

The seedings are based, in some part certainly, on how nations did in the process of qualifying for the actual finals themselves thus "scraping over the line" has seriously damaged the outlook for some countries. I think that if Spain had lost and Scotland won in their last games then Scotland could well have got into pot 1 :lol:

England will get Turkey, Netherlands and Italy.

What's England's best possible group scenario? Albania, Slovenia and then one of Kazakhstan, Georgia or Luxembourg should they qualify? Assuming it's neither of those 3 and Greece qualify instead, would it be them?

Or, if you're lucky, Romania so you can see how a Puscas works when used properly.

Draw tonight. Hoping England get a group game in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich or possibly Cologne (I have visited the latter recently but it's an excellent city).
