The newly arranged EM 2020 starts this summer with a view to Europe.

The tournament was supposed to take place in June and July before the coronavirus pandemic forced Uefa to postpone the final by 12 months.

Turkey and Italy started the tournament in Rome on Friday, June 11th, before the first group match on Sunday, June 13th, with England against Croatia, followed by Scotland against the Czech Republic on Monday, June 14th.

It promises to be a highly competitive group where three teams have the potential to move into the knockout stage.

Here’s everything you need to know about Group D:


Which teams are in group D?

England, Croatia, Scotland and the Czech Republic form group D.

What are the venues?

London (Wembley Stadium) and Glasgow (Hampden Park).

What are the fixtures and when are they?

Sunday June 13th

England v Croatia – 2pm (London)

Monday June 14th

Scotland vs. Czech Republic – 2 p.m. (Glasgow)

Friday June 18th

Croatia v Czech Republic – 5pm (Glasgow)

England v Scotland – 8pm (London)

Tuesday June 22nd

Czech Republic – England – 8 p.m. (London)

Croatia v Scotland – 8 p.m. (Glasgow)

How are the teams organized?

England, fresh from the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup, are one of the favorites to win the tournament and have one of the deadliest strikers in the game in Harry Kane. As a finalist in 2018, Croatia will promise to lead the Three Lions closely with player of the tournament in Russia Luka Modric, who is still a force even at 35. The Czechs reached the semi-finals back in 1996 and are hoping to jump even more surprises, while Scotland will also be keen on a scalp or two, especially the old enemy, on their first return to a major tournament in 22 years.

How many fans will be let in?

That stays up in the air, but a number of venues have committed to getting fans back in the stadiums for the tournament.

Wembley Stadium will hold 22,500 fans for the group stage, but we hope to increase that number as the finals progress. Hampden Park has pledged to house 13,000 but is similarly optimistic about the increase.

What about tickets?

The initial ticketing process saw the greatest demand ever for a major tournament, with more than 19 million people competing for the two million tickets available.

Uefa gave fans the option to return all tickets for a full refund in December, with another option to do so until April 22nd.

In the case of games that are still oversubscribed, a later ticket vote will decide who is still allowed to participate.

Who will win the group?

England 1/3

Croatia 7/2

Czech Republic 9/1

Scotland 11/1
