EURO 2020: England qualify for knockout stages

  • Monday night’s results mean England are now guaranteed a spot in Euros last 16
  • Ukraine and Finland have both finished third in their groups with three points
  • England already have four points and can only finish as low as third in Group D

England qualify for the knockout stages after Ukraine and Finland both finish third in their groups.

Three groups have now been completed, with Ukraine and Finland both ending with three points in third place of their respective groups.

Of the six groups in total, four third-placed teams will go through and with England already having four points they are now unable to miss out as a third-placed team.

Third is the worst position Gareth Southgate’s men can finish in Group D, so it is now impossible for the Three Lions to crash out in the group stages of the tournament.

It is also good news for the Czech Republic, France and Sweden, who are all now in the same position and unable to go out in the group stages of the Euros.

That said, the news is unlikely to see England take their foot off the gas at Wembley on Tuesday night, as they look for a second win of the group stages against the Czech Republic.
