Group D Teams
Finishing their qualification group strong, with seven wins from eight games, England enter the UEFA EURO 2020 (2021) Finals as potential winners of the competition. Although manager Gareth Southgate is yet to settle on his starting XI, the possibilities feel endless for The Three Lions who boast envious talent in all areas of the pitch. Currently enjoying what could be his best season to date, captain Harry Kane will undoubtedly relish the responsibility of guiding this young English side deep into the tournament.
The Croatian national team rocked the globe by making it all the way to the 2018 World Cup Final. Although it was not meant to be on the day, the Balkan nation has not let its high standards slip since then, qualifying for the UEFA EURO 2020 (2021) Finals at the top of a difficult group. With the likes of Luka Modric, Ivan Perisic, Bruno Petkovic and Dejan Lovren included in the squad, Croatia promise to once again be a force to be reckoned with.
The Scotish national team successfully beat Serbia in a play-off final to gain entry into their first major tournament in more than two decades. Although finding themselves in unfamiliar territory, Steve Clarke’s side have matured into a decent squad, led by the likes of Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson, Arsenal’s Kieren Tierney and Manchester United’s Scott McTominay. For Scotland it all begins on 14 June when they host Czech Republic at Hampden Park.
Czech Republic successfully secured qualification for their seventh European Championship in a row by finishing in second place with five wins and three losses. Although Czech Republic might not boast the greatest team in the tournament, manager Jaroslav Silhavy has built a solid core in his squad, based around Tomas Vaclik, Ondrej Celustka and Vladimir Darida.
