Every England Route to the Final After a Result Against the Czech Republic

Here we have assessed every route to the final that England would have to take depending on their result against the Czech Republic.

A win would see England top Group D which would give them a harder task on paper against the runners-up of Group F, whilst a draw would see Gareth Southgate’s side take on the winner of Group E, which at present would be Sweden, whilst a third-placed finish would take an England loss and a three-goal swing to Scotland, as Croatia can’t qualify ahead of the Three Lions having been beaten 1-0 at Wembley on matchday one via a Raheem Sterling strike, giving England a superior head-to-head record over the Croats.

ENGLAND TO WIN THE EUROS @ 7/1

Group D Winners

With the quality that England have in their squad, as well as also having home advantage, the Three Lions will be expected to win Group D. Topping their group would then mean that they will face the runner-up of Group F, which at this stage can be one of France, Germany, Hungary or Portugal, although the initial two are expected to finish as first and second in the group at present.

Any of these footballing powerhouses would be a huge test for the Three Lions, as they have poor records against the likes of France, Germany and Portugal at major tournaments.

There are also several prospects that England could face in the quarter-finals, as if they win Group D as well as their round of 16 game then they face Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia or third place in Group A, B, C or D.

If England are to get past the quarter-finals they then would play one of Wales, the Netherlands, one of Russia or Finland and potentially a third-placed team from group D, E or F, with the latter of those groups involving one of France, Germany or Portugal, although with a bit of luck, if England does make it this far then one of the third-placed teams from the other groups could make it depending on each sides position on the best third-placed teams’ table.

Group D Runners-Up

England’s best chances of progressing to the quarter-finals could be via a second-place finish in Group D in similar circumstances to that of the 2018 World Cup, as they will face the runners up of Group E, which could be any of Sweden, Slovakia, Spain or Poland.

The quarter-finals stage would see England take on either a third-placed team Group A, B or C which currently stands as Switzerland, Finland and Austria or the winner of Group F which on paper will most likely mean that the Three Lions will have to go up against the might of France or Germany as the latter have a head-to-head advantage against Portugal and take on Hungary on matchday three of their group.

The semi-finals would then see the Three Lions be forced to take on one of Italy or Belgium on paper, unless there is a major upset with the other opponents being either a third-placed team from Group A, D, E or F or the runner-up of Group C which is currently a toss-up between Ukraine and Austria.

Third Place in Group D

If England were to do the unthinkable and finish as one of the best third-placed teams, then they would face the winners of Group B, C or E which would be one of Holland, Belgium and one of Sweden, Slovakia or Spain, which alike winning the group, would make the path to the quarter-finals incredibly tough.

The outcome of the quarter-final matches is a complicated one if England finishes in third place as if they beat Belgium in the last 16, they will face either Italy or the runner-up in Group C which is currently Ukraine.

If the Three Lions beat the winner of Group C, the Netherlands then they will face the runner-up of Group A or B which is Wales and the latter being Russia at present.

The other potential route to the quarter-finals would be England beating the winners of Group E, which as mentioned above will be one of Sweden, Slovakia and Spain. If the Three Lions were to do this then they could face the Czech Republic or the runners-up of Group F containing France, Germany or Portugal.
