Following the conclusion of the Euro 2020 play-offs, which included Scotland’s dramatic win over Serbia on penalties, the line-up for the tournament is now complete.
England will take on Scotland in the group stages in what will be their first tournament clash since Euro 96. A mouth-watering prospect.
The tournament consists of 24 teams, split across six groups. The top 16 teams will progress to the knockout stages, with the top two in each group plus four best third-placed teams to go through. The competition then enters a traditional knockout format.
England have been drawn in the same group as Scotland, Croatia and the Czech Republic. The group of death looks to be Group F, containing Germany, France, Portugal and Hungary.
When is the tournament?
The tournament, which was postponed by a year due to the global pandemic, will now take place from June 11 to July 11 2021.

Where are the matches being played?
As it stands, the tournament is scheduled to be played across 12 host cities around Europe. This format may have to be altered depending on the state of the global pandemic in July.
Uefa has given the 12 host cities until April to submit detailed plans for their hosting, with England among those countries ready to stage additional games if other venues are forced to drop out. Group matches are already scheduled for Wembley in London and Hampden Park in Glasgow, while both semi-finals and the final will be staged at Wembley. The Government has distanced itself from suggestions that it has offered to host the entire tournament.
Oliver Dowden, the Culture Secretary, set up Stig – the Sports Technology and Innovation Group – last September to explore hi-tech solutions to get fans back into venues. The rapid progress in the vaccination roll-out has also prompted discussion over the possibility of launching digital passports to allow fans to prove they have had the jab.
It is understood two test events would be required if Wembley is to be given the go-ahead to have fans for the seven Euro 2020 matches. Numbers have yet to be discussed at this stage but it appears unlikely the 90,000-seater stadium would be more than a third full for England’s eagerly-anticipated group stage match against Scotland.
Fans will get refunds if matches are moved further than 50 kilometres from their intended venue
