England - Euro 2020 qualis and Nations League

England in Group D, with Croatia and Czech Republic. So the team that knocked us out of the WC and the only team we've lost to in qualis* for a century. We'll also face one of Norway, Serbia, Scotland or Israel (after one of them has qualified via the playoffs between those four).

And if we get out the group, we could face someone from the group of death: Germany, France, Portugal.

Can't say we'll have an easy route this time...

Wales have Switzerland, Turkey, Italy. With two trips to Baku and one to Rome. Could have been easier, but sneaking through in third very doable.

I can't explain it totally, but it's to do with whether or not the qualifiers are host nations (Hungary and Romania are). That places limits on which groups they can be put into as they'll need to have their home matches.

Somehow Azerbaijan was selected as a host nation, while Wales (which applied) was turned down. Unsurprisingly Azerbaijan fell short of qualification.
