The Euro 2024 is just less than three months away and after the completion of the play-offs, the final three teams have been confirmed for the summer’s tournament in Germany.

The competition begins on June 14 with the hosts’ opener and concludes in the Berlin final exactly a month later.

The field is wide open, too. Germany are not preferred despite their home advantage with defending champions Italy not exactly on a great run of form since lifting the trophy at Wembley three years ago, having missed the World Cup.

France are expected to be a major force once again, led by Kylian Mbappe, while Spain, Portugal, Croatia and the Netherlands can never be discounted at this level.

England will be among the favourites having cruised through qualification and looked like serious contenders at the last three major tournaments.

The Euro 2024 play-offs completed the line-up for the tournament with Georgia booking their ticket for the first time, after beating Greece on penalties. Ukraine produced a comeback to defeat Iceland while Wales were defeated by Poland in a tense penalty shootout.

Once again, the 24-team tournament is split into six groups of four. The top two of each group qualify automatically for the last-16 and the four top-ranked third-placed finishers will join them.

In total, 24 teams will participate in the tournament with Poland, Ukraine and Georgia progressing via the play-offs.

What are the Euro 2024 groups?

Group A - Germany, Scotland, Hungary, Switzerland

Group B - Spain, Croatia, Italy, Albania

Group C - Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, England

Group D - Poland, Netherlands, Austria, France

Group E - Belgium, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine

Group F - Turkey, Georgia, Portugal, Czech Republic

What is the Euro 2024 schedule and format?
