Which teams have booked their place at the pan-European international tournament next year?

Euro 2020 doesn't take place until June 2020, but plenty of teams are booking their place at the tournament in October and November.

The tournament, which is being held in venues across Europe, will feature a total of 24 competitors, with some of the game's heavyweights expected to feature.

However, there is always room for an upset, even if the number of teams has been increased.

Group A

England failed to capitalise on the chance to qualify for Euro 2020 on October 11 when they lost to Czech Republic.

The Czechs are also fighting for one of the qualification spots alongside Kosovo, who could still potentially reach a major tournament for the first time in their short history as an independent team.

Group B

Ukraine became the first team from Group B to advance to Euro 2020 after winning 2-1 against Portugal on October 14.

Reigning European champions Portugal are close behind Ukraine, with Serbia also contending for qualification as an outside bet.

Group C

Germany, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands are the teams fighting it out for qualification from Group C.

However, since it is so tight between the three teams, qualification or elimination will not be confirmed until the final group games in November.

Belarus, meanwhile, will advance to the play-offs.

Group D

Group D is a closely fought battle between the Republic of Ireland, Switzerland and Denmark.

Georgia cannot qualify directly, but they will advance to the play-off stage.

Group E

Croatia failed to wrap up qualification for Euro 2020 after drawing 1-1 with Wales on October 13.

Outside of Croatia it is extremely open. Slovakia and Hungary are the main contenders for the other qualification spot while Wales lag slightly behind.

Group F

Spain became the sixth team to qualify for Euro 2020 after drawing against Sweden.

Outside of La Roja, Sweden, Romania and Norway are battling it out for the second spot..

Group G

Group G is a very competitive affair, with five out of the six teams still realistically retaining a chance of qualification.

Poland have sealed qualification with a 2-0 win over North Macedonia, who along with Austria, Slovenia and Israel are still in the hunt for that second qualifying spot. 

Group H

Group H, which contains world champions France, is another tight affair heading into the final stages.

As well as Les Bleus, Turkey, Iceland and, to a lesser extent, Albania, are all in the mix for booking their place at Euro 2020.

Group I

Belgium became the first team to qualify for Euro 2020 when they beat San Marino on October 10.

Russia  joined them in clinching qualification after their away win over Cyprus on October 13.

Scotland's hopes of automatic qualification are kaput, but they will have a chance to qualify through the play-offs.

Group J

Italy became the second team to secure Euro 2020 qualification when they beat Greece 2-0 on October 12.

Finland and Armenia are competing for the other spot, with Bosnia-Herzegovina retaining a slim chance.
