Germany, Scotland, Hungary, and Switzerland have been drawn in Group A, and the only game being played on the opening day of the tournament is an evening kick-off (20:00 GMT) between Germany and Scotland.

Group B has Spain, Croatia, Italy, and Albania. Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, and England have been drawn in Group C. You also have the Netherlands, Austria, and France in Group D.

Belgium, Slovakia, and Romania are in Group E, and in Group F, we have Turkey, Portugal, and Czechia (also known as the Czech Republic). The other opening fixtures on day 2 (June 15) start with a 14:00 kick-off between Hungary and Switzerland. You then have Spain vs Croatia at 17:00, and Italy vs Albania at 20:00.

Some of the Euro 2024 groups only have three teams because qualifying for the tournament hasn't finished yet. Each group will eventually have four teams after the qualification period has ended.

The remaining three teams will be decided through the play-offs, which are scheduled to take place in March 2024. The qualifying play-off semi-finals will be on March 21, and the playoff-final will be on March 26.


Some of the latest stories circulating the internet are that Brighton's Lewis Dunk has been backed for a Euro 2024 call-up. Phill Foden may be left out, which has frustrated some England fans, especially with Marcus Rashford being chosen instead, and Trent Alexander Arnold has also been called up.
