Group F – Group of Death!

Reaction from the managers of France, Germany and Portugal to the Euro 2020 draw

World champions France, European champions Portugal and the previous World Cup winners Germany are all together with one play-off team in Group F.

This is only the second major tournament where the world champions and the European champions will have met in the group stage – after Euro 1992, when the Netherlands beat Germany.

Germany, who won the 2014 World Cup, will host their three group games in Munich, with the other matches in Budapest. If Hungary win their play-offs, they will be in the group, hosting two games.

One big boost for the trio is that four of the tournament’s six third-placed teams go into the last 16.

“This is a group of death,” said Germany boss Joachim Low. 

“The games in Munich will be football festivals. The expectations will be quite high. For our young team, this will be a huge challenge but also a big motivation. This is the reward for winning the qualifier group.”
