Euro 2024: What are England’s routes to through the knockouts?

Must Read

By winning the group, England have avoided a last-16 game against Germany and will instead face the Netherlands or whoever finishes third in Group E at 17:00 BST on Sunday, in Gelsenkirchen.

As it stands, Romania, Belgium, Slovakia and Ukraine are all locked on three points each in Group E so it could yet end up being any one of those four.

Confusingly, however, it’s actually the results in Group F on Wednesday which will decide who the Three Lions face next. Stay with us for the next bit.

Southgate’s men will face the Dutch, who finished third in Group D, unless the Czech Republic beat Turkey or Georgia are victorious against Portugal in Group F.

That’s because Turkey, Czech Republic and Georgia can all finish third in Group F – and, if they do so while ending up with three points or more, they would take Hungary’s place in the third-placed standings.

The knock-on impact of that will leave England with a tie against someone in Group E.

Data Analysts Nielsen Gracenote have the likelihood of England’s opponents as:

  • 61% Netherlands

  • 16% Slovakia

  • 11% Ukraine

  • 8% Romania

  • 4% Belgium
