The Euro 2024 qualfying draw was made in Frankfurt on Sunday, with a repeat of the 2020 final as Italy and England were drawn together.
Italy won the tournament 3-2 on penalties at Wembley in 2021, delayed a year amid the coronavirus pandemic, and the road to Germany includes a showdown between the Azzurri and Gareth Southgate’s side once more. Ukraine, North Macedonia and Malta make up the other teams in Group C. North Macedonia knocked Italy out of 2022 World Cup qualifying, while Ukraine are unable to play on home soil amid the ongoing war with Russia.
Elsewhere, Netherlands face France in an eye-catching Group B, while Scotland face a difficult task in Group A, drawn alongside Spain and Erling Haaland’s Norway.
