It’s time to put club rivalries aside, dust off your England shirt from 2004 and get back on the Three Lions bandwagon as Gareth Southgate’s boys start their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign on ITV.

The Three Lions begin their quest for qualification against the Czechs on Friday 22 March at Wembley, before hitting the road for the first time to face Montenegro on Monday 25 March.

Euro 2020 scouting report: Czech Republic

Euro 2020 scouting report: Montenegro

England’s recent record in European qualifying is nothing short of sensational, which bodes well for captain Harry Kane and co. The team didn’t lose a single match in their last two qualifying campaigns, while their successful journey to reach Euro 2016 saw them win all ten games. It’s like Steve McClaren never happened.


With their UEFA Nations League semi-final against the Netherlands also to come this summer, it’s all set up for England to have a memorable 2019 – great news for Baddiel, Skinner and waistcoat enthusiasts across the country.


All of England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers are exclusively live on ITV, which means you can follow all the action as they look to reach next year’s finals. Here we go!
