Germany at Euro 2024: Teams in group, fixtures, schedule, path to final for hosts | Sporting News Australia



Germany welcome the top national sides from across European football as they take on hosting duties at Euro 2024.

On the back of a difficult 12 months for the German national team, head coach Julian Nagelsmann is under pressure to ensure the hosts produce a solid showing, after qualifying automatically.

Nagelsmann was drafted in to replace Hansi Flick in September 2023, following the latter’s sacking by the German FA, and Nagelsmann’s contract has been extended until after the 2026 World Cup.

Changes and uncertainty have impacted Germany’s preparations for the tournament, but Nagelsmann still has an exciting young team at his disposal, including Bundesliga stars Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz.

Scotland, seeded in pot three, were drawn as team “A2”, meaning Steve Clarke’s side will face Germany in the tournament opener at the Allianz Arena in Munich on June 14.

Arguably the toughest assignment on paper then follows for Nagelsmann’s side, with Hungary at Stuttgart’s MHP Arena on June 19.

Germany wrap up the the round-robin stage four days later against Switzerland in Frankfurt.

If Germany progress as group winners they will face the runners-up from Group C, which comprises England, Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia.

Second place in Group A means a last-16 fixture against the corresponding team in Group B, which looks devilishly competitive. Holders Italy, three-time winners Spain and 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia will also face one another alongside outsiders Albania.

The four best third-placed teams will also advance to the knockout stages.
