The Stage is Set for Euro 2024

With the Premier League season wrapped up, the focus now shifts to the international stage as England prepares to make their mark at Euro 2024. The team, still feeling the sting from their near miss in the previous tournament, is set to start their quest for European glory this summer.

Group C: England’s Opening Challenges

England, under the guidance of Gareth Southgate, finds itself in Group C, facing Serbia, Denmark, and Slovenia. The nation’s hopes are high, with expectations that the Three Lions will dominate the group and secure a spot in the knockout stages.

England’s Tournament Kickoff Against Serbia

The action for England begins on a high note with their opening match against Serbia on Sunday, June 16. Fans will be eagerly tuning in at 8pm BST to cheer on the Three Lions at the Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen.

England’s Group Stage Fixtures

The full lineup for England’s group stage matches is as follows:

  • Sunday, June 16 – Serbia vs England, kick-off at 8pm BST (Arena AufSchalke, Gelsenkirchen)
  • Thursday, June 20 – Denmark vs England, kick-off at 5pm BST (Waldstadion, Frankfurt)
  • Tuesday, June 25 – England vs Slovenia, kick-off at 8pm BST (RheinEnergieStadion, Cologne)

Path to the Round of 16: England’s Potential Routes

Should England top Group C, they’ll face a third-placed team from Group D/E/F at Arena AufSchalke on June 30. A second-place group finish would pit them against the Group A winners in Dortmund on June 29. And if they advance as one of the four best third-place teams, they could play on July 1 or 2 in Frankfurt or Munich, respectively.

Quarter-Finals and Beyond: England’s Prospects

An optimistic journey through the round of 16 could see England competing in the quarter-finals on July 5 or 6, with venues in Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, Hamburg, or Berlin. Advancing further, the semi-finals await on July 9 or 10, with potential matches in Munich or Dortmund.

The Dream of the Final

The ultimate goal for England is to reach the final on Sunday, July 14, with an 8pm kick-off at the prestigious Olympiastadion in Berlin. The nation holds its breath as the team embarks on what could be a historic run in this year’s European Championship.
