Group F: Top 2
UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifying
The UEFA European Championship is a football competition contested by the senior men's national teams. Only the members of the UEFA take participation in the competition to determine the continental champion of Europe. The current champion of Europe is Portugal, after they won the Euro 2016 by beating France in the final.
The Euro 2020 will be the 16th European Championship and it is scheduled to be held in 12 cities in 12 European countries from 12 June to 12 July 2020. This edition will be the first-time ever that VAR (Video Assistant Referee) will be used in a European Championship. The winner of the tournament earns the right to compete in FIFA Confederations Cup 2021. A total of 55-teams will be playing the qualifying round and 24 of them will be eligible to play in the finals. The teams have been divided into 10 groups of five or six teams in each of them.
Group F consists of six national teams including a former European and World Champion. The teams are:
Head coach: Luis Enrique
Captain: Sergio Ramos
The favorite team to go through from this group is undoubtedly Spain. The former World champions won back-to-back Euros in 2008 and 2012. They had a disappointing World Cup in 2018 and have hired a new head coach, former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique. If Spain goes through to the finals, they will surely be one of the favorites to win the tournament.
Head coach: Janne Andersson
Captain: Andreas Granqvist
Sweden has played in the finals of the last 5 Euro Cups. But their best ever record in the competition came in 1992 when they reached the semi-finals. Sweden reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2018 without their star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic and played impressive football. They are currently ranked 14th in the FIFA World Rankings and are expected to go through to the finals.
Head coach: Lars Lagerbäck
Captain: Stefan Johansen
Norway has been able to play in only one European Championship in their history in 2000. They failed to qualify for the finals since then. The team has done well in the UEFA Nations League 2018-19 as they have been promoted to League B from League C after finishing first in their group. They are currently ranked 46th in FIFA World Rankings.
Head coach: Cosmin Contra
Captain: Cristian Săpunaru
Romania has played in 5 European Championships in their history and the last one was in 2016. The highest they’ve ever reached in the competition is the quarter finals. Romania finished 2nd in their group in the UEFA Nations League 2018/19 and failed to earn promotion to League B. They are currently ranked 24th in the FIFA World Rankings.
Head coach: Lars Olsen
Captain: Atli Gregersen
Faroe Island has never been able to qualify for a World Cup or a Euro Cup in their history. The team didn’t do very well in the UEFA Nations League 2018/19 as they finished 3rd in their group and failed to get promotion to League C. They are currently ranked 98th in the FIFA World Rankings.
Head coach: Ray Farrugia
Captain: Michael Mifsud
Malta also has never been able to qualify for a World Cup or a Euro Cup in their history. The team performed very badly in the UEFA Nations League 2018/19 as well. They lost all their matches in their group of League D. They are currently ranked 182nd in the FIFA World Rankings.
