Southgate team has a tough group in the 2020 Nations League

Denmark and Iceland join England and Belgium in group A2.

England will meet the Danes in a friendly match later this month, if the coronavirus allows, when they lost to Iceland in Nice during Euro 2016.

Elsewhere, Wales and the Republic of Ireland will meet again in the UEFA Nations League.

Ryan Giggs’ men will face the Irish in Group 4 of League B in UEFA competition, which was a great success in its first edition in 2018-19.

The teams also met in this first competition, Wales having won both matches. The other teams in group B4 are the first finalists for the Euro, Finland and Bulgaria.


Scotland, which is set to face Israel in the Euro 2020 qualifiers later this month, will also face them in the 2020-21 Nations League.

Steve Clarke’s men will also face the Czech Republic and Slovakia in group B2.

Northern Ireland was drawn in group B1 alongside Austria, Norway and Romania.

Portugal was crowned winner of its inaugural tournament last summer after defeating the Netherlands 1-0 in the final thanks to a strike by Goncalo Guedes.

However, UEFA has made some changes to its configuration this time.

There will now be four teams in each group in the first three divisions – against most of the last three times.

It does not offer any guaranteed places for the 2022 World Cup, while the previous version provided four places for Euro 2020.
