UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying groups have been confirmed

UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying groups have been confirmed

England will be in Group C.

The UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying draw took place in Switzerland this morning, with England in Group C alongside fellow Euro 2020 finalists Italy.

Gareth Southgate's side are preparing for this winter's World Cup in Qatar but will have to turn their eye to qualification for Euro 2024 soon.

The qualifying group stages take place between March 2023 and November 2023, with the finals in Germany the following summer.

Germany have already qualified for the tournament as host nation. Check out each respective group below:

Group A: Spain, Scotland, Norway, Georgia, Cyprus

Group B: Netherlands, France, Republic of Ireland, Greece, Gibraltar

Group C: Italy, England, Ukraine, North Macedonia, Malta

Group D: Croatia, Wales, Armenia, Turkey, Latvia

Group E: Poland, Czech Republic, Albania, Faroe Islands, Moldova

Group F: Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Estonia

Group G: Hungary, Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Lithuania

Group H: Denmark, Finland, Slovenia, Kazakhstan, Northern Ireland, San Marino

Group I: Switzerland, Israel, Romania, Kosovo, Belarus, Andorra

Group J: Portugal, Bosnia, Iceland, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Liechtenstein

England should have no problems qualifying for the tournament, but Italy will prove to be a tricky test if they want to finish top.

The Three Lions were beaten by Italy in the Euro 2020 final and then drawn against their bitter foes in this year's UEFA Nations League.

Both sides played out a drab 0-0 draw in the first meeting at the Molineux, while Italy ran out 1-0 winners at the San Siro last month.

Southgate is under pressure after overseeing a six-game winless run. The 52-year-old signed a new contract in 2021, but previously stated he'll leave when no longer wanted.

"I know ultimately I will be judged on what happens at that World Cup," he told The Guardian.

"Contracts are irrelevant in football because managers can have three-, four-, five‑year contracts and you accept that, if results are not good enough it is time to go your separate ways. Why would I be any different?

"I am not arrogant enough to think that my contract is going to protect me in any way."
