Group F: Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands, Malta

Could be better, could be worse.

Spain obviously far and away the best team in the group.

Bit worrying to come up against 2 of the most in form sides in Europe (outside the big teams obviously) in Norway and Romania. Both of them had a stellar year in 2018.

Lagerbäck and Norway against Sweden was always going to happen wasn't it...

Nice to have the safety line of Play Off already secured.

What an utterly absurd tournament this will be.

Some nations will play a bunch of games at home while some nations and fans will be forced to schlep all around Europe for their group games.

And then in the knock out rounds it will be just as bad.

Nice for England I guess who if they do their part will play almost the entire tournament at Wembley.

Just hope for the fans sake that UEFA are a bit clever when they "draw" the groups so that it doesn't become too ridiculous and expensive for any fans who feel like following their teams in the stadiums.

Sweden in the Copenhagen/St Petersburg group for example.

Also cute that games are to be played in Romania despite them not qualifying and having huge problem with racism in and around the stands.

They've already managed to make the Euro's a beast so big that only a very select few countries will be able to host it on their own.

England, Germany, (Russia) France and perhaps Spain and Italy. Although the last 2 or 3 might need an upgrade on the stadium front as it's getting a bit worn out and outdated.

Will be 24 teams in the 2024 Euro's in Germany
