The dome-shaped Romeo in Bucharest, fittingly resembling a circus tent, hosted Saturday night’s draw and the city will also host matches next summer. The good wishes of Europe’s governing body aren’t encouraging news for Iceland, drawn to play the Romanians in a play-off semi-final in March, but does sum up this latest version of the European Championship. An unnecessarily complex and complicated carve-up aimed to please as many nations as possible.

Scores of delegates including Gareth Southgate and Ryan Gigs descended on the Romanian capital on a rainy eastern European evening but there was little of the anticipation you usually associate with a major draw.

Only 11 of the 36 countries represented 20 definite qualifiers and 16 play-off hopefuls didn’t have any idea of which group they would be in. It’s a result of UEFA’s decision to play Euro 2020 across many cities in different countries. Even the obvious ‘group of death’ containing holders Portugal, France and Germany lack normal jeopardy given that the four best third-placed teams will also go through to the knockout stages.

Advantage for England

But this time England will have home benefit, first counter to Croatia on June 14, 2020 match. They beat the Czechs 5-0 at Wembley in March. Southgate’s only concern, being paired with France, was averted by Ruud Gullet pulling out the Croatian ball after some acrobatics and music from the Bucharest Symphony Orchestra which is the hallmark of a good UEFA draw.

Gareth Southgate talk

“The two teams we see we’ve got (Croatia and Czech Republic), we have decent results and poor results against them, he said. ‘It’s nothing to be complacent about but everyone not in Group F will be pleased about that.”

“Croatia at Wembley is a brilliant opening game for the fans and the players. There is a contrast. They have hugely experienced players throughout the team. We are the other end of the scale. Very young, lots of energy but improving. It is a nice contrast. You can’t make up for losing a World Cup semi-final, unfortunately. We felt like that after beating them in the Nations League. It was nice to win but it didn’t redress it. But this is a really attractive fixture.”

“In the end, we want to win every game we play and have control of our destiny. Fortune will take you wherever it takes you,’ he said. At this stage, he is thinking of nothing but qualifying. ‘You need a strategy of getting out the group. There are three games, not one.”

‘England is now a fantastic team,’ he said. ‘It is not easy to play the first game at Wembley. But we reached the World Cup final so I always believe. I am optimistic. They are very potent in attack. In the next three, four, five years, they will be on top of the European game.’
