It was the Euro 2020 draw on Saturday evening, and as always, it threw up plenty of talking points for the Twitter family to debate.
The likes of Francesco Totti and Phillip Lahm assembled to draw up an absolutely cracking group stage, which will see England face an old foe from tournaments gone by, and possibly be in line to square up to one of their oldest rivals, too.
Fans were also presented with the ‘group of death’ to end all groups of death, along with a tough test for Gareth Bale’s Wales, who will travel to Rome in search of European glory.
As always, Twitter was the place to be as the draw was made, and you guys didn’t disappoint!
And Harry Kane is through on goal…he must square it! NO!
How many times have England fans replayed that moment in their minds? Raheem Sterling was unmarked in the six yard box against Croatia in the World Cup semi-final, but Kane’s decision to shoot cost the Three Lions the chance to double their lead, and ultimately, cost Gareth Southgate’s men a place in the final.
But England got revenge in the much more important UEFA Nations League, so who’s laughing now, eh?
…Anyway, the two nations are set to cross paths once more in the much-anticipated Euro 2020 (gulp). This fixture will always bring painful memories flooding back, and it’s safe to say, England fans weren’t too keen to go head-to-head with Modric and co. for a third time in successive competitions.
But the real drama came in Group F, where Portugal, Germany and France were all drawn together in the ultimate group of death. Play-off winner A, you may as well pack it in and take the summer off. Go on holiday and enjoy yourself.
I would like to thank UEFA for putting Portugal, France and Germany in the same Euro 2020 group. This might go down as the most ridiculous draw format I’ve ever seen.

As for Wales, they were drawn against Italy, Turkey and Switzerland in a particularly tricky group, but the Welsh supporters seem ready to take on Europe, following their dramatic qualification.
Knowing Wales you’ll draw to Switzerland, Lose to Turkey and beat Italy I can’t wait, should be a fun tournament. Group F looks tasty.
Rooting for Scotland to win their play-off to set up England v Scotland at Wembley 爛

Speaking of Scotland…the Scots will be in a group with England at Euro 2020 if they are able to overcome Israel and one of Norway or Serbia in their playoff path C. In layman’s terms, Scotland will not be facing England at Euro 2020.
