All England's potential routes to Euro 2020 glory at Wembley


Gareth Southgate is desperate to finish top of Group D because it will mean an easier route to Euros glory.

England boss Southgate can guarantee a last 16 tie at Wembley next Tuesday by beating Czech Republic and, even though they could face a tougher opponent, it would give them home comforts.

Southgate has actually pointed to the travel and logistical issues being an even greater advantage than home support because Wembley still has limited crowds.

The FA also see it as a huge bonus if they can stay at Wembley because it helps the training plans, staying at St George’s Park for as long as possible and cuts down on travel.

FA chiefs have seen the amount of travel some teams have had to do across Europe and believe home advantage gives them a huge edge.



England have five different possible routes to reach the Euro 2020 final

They would still have to face a quarter-final in Rome but then are due back to return to Wembley with the semi finals and finals in London – as long as the Government reach agreement with UEFA over quarantine exemptions for VIPs.

England would face either France, Germany or Portugal in the last 16 if they stay at home but could still get Spain if they finish second and have to go to Copenhagen in the last 16 and also St Petersburg for the quarter finals.

Travel restrictions have been eased for Denmark with proof of two vaccinations needed while if they lose to the Czech Republic and finish third then they could end up in Budapest, Sevilla and Glasgow.
