Portugal, France and Germany drawn together, England face Croatia

Defending champions Portugal will be in the same Euro 2020 group as France and Germany while England meet Croatia in a repeat of last year’s World Cup semi-final following the draw on Saturday.

World champions France, Germany and Portugal will be joined in Group F, to be played in Munich and Budapest, by the winners of playoff A or D in by far the toughest of the six first-round pools.

Portugal were among the third seeded teams because of their relatively poor performance in the qualifiers.

England and Croatia, who play the first Group D match in London, will be joined by the Czech Republic and the eventual winners of playoff C.

The tournament will be played in 12 different European countries in a one-off format to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the European Championship.
