England currently head into this year’s Euros as one of the dead set favourites to win the competition for the first time in a long time. There are a number of online bookmakers backing the Three Lions with favourably low odds and popular pundits alike looking to this England side to go all the way summer.

Who is in England’s group for Euro 2021?
Harry Kane and co. will be out for revenge after being knocked out of the World Cup by Luka Modric’s checkered men almost three years ago. With the anguish of that balmy night at the Luzhniki in Moscow still fresh in the minds of the fallen, it will please many England fans to know the Croats head into this summer’s Euros in dreadful form.
Croatia have won just four of their last ten matches in all competitions, falling foul of the likes of France, Portugal, Sweden and Slovenia. Though with a rich history of turning out at major competitions and considering recent history, it would be foolish to write them off just yet.
It’s difficult to decide who provides the bigger threat when it comes to England’s remaining opponents, Scotland and Czech Republic. The bookies are backing the Czechs slightly ahead of the Scots to make it out of Group D. With two matches held in Glasgow it could be up to Scotland to take their home advantage, and the prospect of being a thorn in England’s side will be an added incentive.
Where are England’s games being played at Euro 2021?
All of England’s group matches are being played on home turf at Wembley Stadium in London.
If England finish first and top Group D they will also set up a home fixture at Wembley, meeting the runners up in Group F.
If Southgate’s side finish second in Group D they will travel to Denmark to play the second place finisher in Group E at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.
Who will England play if they win their group?
England are currently favourites to top Group D but finishing in pole position could land the Three Lions in a tricky spot when it comes to potential opponents in the round of 16. Should England finish at the top of their group they will face the second place finisher of Group F.
Group F is currently being dubbed as the “Group of Death” by many, currently containing world champions France, European champions Portugal and England’s old foe, the Germans.
Who will England play if they don’t win their group?
If England finish second in Group D they will set up a fixture against the second place finishers in Group E with the likes of Spain, Sweden, Poland and Slovakia all in contention.
Unsurprisingly Spain are being touted to top their group, although pole position was hardly fought for them at the last gasp in Russia three years ago.
Aside from the Spanish, match ups against the remaining three teams of Group E would likely provide easier opposition for England should they progress to the round of 16, although nothing is taken for granted.
Can England go through if they finish third?
Yes, but only as one of the four best performing third-place finishers in relation to the remaining groups. The remaining two third place finishes will exit the competition.
With such a strong tournament across the board in UEFA’s newly expanded Euros, finishing third would put England in at the mercy of top placed finishers of either Group B, Group C or Group E. In turn this would see England travel to play games in Budapest, Seville or closer to home in Glasgow.
