The pots for the UEFA Euro 2020 group stage draw have been confirmed. The draw will take place in Bucharest, Romania on November 30, 2019.
The seedings were decided by each side's performance in the qualifiers. Seedings were based on the overall European Qualifiers rankings, which were determined based on final position in the group, points, goal difference, goals scored, away goals scored, number of wins, number of away wins and position in overall UEFA Nations League rankings.
England's UEFA Nations League campaign coupled with a dominating Euro 2020 qualifiers performance meant they were in the Pot 1 along with Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Ukraine.
Surprisingly, France dropped to Pot 2. Les Bleus' loss to Turkey in qualification had a big impact on forcing them to face a strong opponent early on in the UEFA Euro 2020. Poland, Switzerland, Croatia, Russia and the Netherlands also assigned to Pot 2.
Down in Pot 3 are Portugal, Turkey, Denmark, Austria, Sweden, and the Czech Republic.
Currently, only two teams occupy Pot 4: Wales and Finland. The other four sides in Pot 4 will be decided in the play-offs.
The draw for the play-offs will take place on November 22. The playoffs will feature 16 teams in head-to-head knockouts that will take place in March. Among the sides vying for a route via these deciders are Iceland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Norway, and Kosovo.
