Although we do not know all 24 participants, the draw for the Euro 2020 group stage has been made.

The end of the official qualifying campaign saw 20 teams guarantee their spot in next year’s tournament, while the final four will be decided by play-offs.

Unlike in previous years, these play-offs will not take place until March 2020, and feature teams based on their ranking in the inaugural Uefa Nations League tournament in 2018/19.

With Euro 2020 being hosted by 12 different cities across Europe, to mark the 60 years since the first European Championships, qualified nations have been afforded the luxury of playing at home where they can.

As a result, many of the groups has started to fill out before Saturday’s draw. But, with the draw now complete, what is the line up for Euro 2020?
