    Qualifying is still ongoing with the playoffs, but today is the draw for the finals of UEFA Euro 2020.

    It's a slightly complicated format because there isn't a host country, and some of the host countries haven't qualified while others won't be playing in the group games they're hosting... With seedings and geographical restrictions, that's set an awful lot of an awful lot of the groups up already, diminishing from the draw somewhat.

    The pots are as follows:

    Pot A
    Belgium, Italy (GpA), England (GpD), Germany (GpF), Spain (GpE), Ukraine

    Pot B
    France, Poland, Switzerland, Croatia, Netherlands (GpC), Russia (GpB)

    Pot C
    Portugal, Turkey, Denmark (GpB), Austria, Sweden, Czech Republic

    Pot D
    Wales, Finland, Playoff A winner (GpC/F), Playoff B winner (GpE), Playoff C winner (GpD), Playoff D winner

    Got that all sorted? Good. The draw takes place... now!

    Italy - A2
    Belgium - B3
    Ukraine - C2
    England - D1
    Spain - E1
    Germany - F4

    That leaves us with a bunch of completely unknown teams, and Wales and Finland. Good going UEFA:
    Wales - A1
    Finland - B2
    Playoff D Winner (Georgia, Belarus, North Macedonia, Kosovo) - C4; unless Romania wins Playoff A, then F1
    Playoff C Winner (Scotland, Israel, Serbia, Norway) - D2
    Playoff B Winner (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Northern Ireland, Slovakia, Republic of Ireland) - E4
    Playoff A Winner (Romania, Iceland, Hungary, Bulgaria) - F1; unless Romania, then C4

    Marginally dumber than the situation with drawing teams that haven't qualified yet and not being sure where Romania can go (because they're a host, but I don't quite follow why Hungary, in the same playoff path and also a host, doesn't get the same consideration) is the third-place group rankings.

    If the best four third-place teams in round one are in groups A, B, C and D, then third in group A (3A) will play first in group B (1B), 3B will play 1E, 3C will play 1F and 3D will play 1A. If they're ABDE, it'll be 3A1E, 3B1F, 3C1E and 3D1B. There's 15 different combinations. Good luck following it all.

    Out of the draws we could have gotten, Italy-Switzerland-Turkey or Belgium-Denmark-Russia, I think Wales got the slightly more favourable one; Italy will be tough but Switzerland and Turkey are winnable games.
