Germany, France and Portugal coaches react to being drawn in Euro 2020 Group of Death

The last three European winners of major competitions are in the same group.

It was the draw for Euro 2020 on Saturday and we now know who will play who in the group stage -  for the most part, anyway.

There are still the play-offs, after all, as 16 teams fight to clinch the final four spots at the tournament.

One possible outcome is a group that features both England at Scotland - if the latter can qualify - potentially the first time that's happened since the Euro '96.

But that's still a 'maybe'. What's certain is that one of the groups is officially the perfect example of a 'group of death'.

Group F isn't even completed yet - the last place will be a play-off side - but we already know it will have Germany, France and Portugal.

That's the last three winners of major tournaments - the 2014 World Cup winners, the 2018 World Cup winners, and the Euro 2016 & 2019 Nations Leauge winners.

It's pretty remarkable and means we're guaranteed three fantastic games between the world's best sides already.

All three would have hoped to win their group, however, and now know that will be incredibly difficult.

That's something you could even see on the respective manager's faces immediately after Phillip Lahm pulled Portugal's name out of the bowl.

Just check out the faces on Fernando Santos, Didier Deschamps and Joachim Low here:

All three had exactly the same reaction - worry that quickly becomes laughter at the absurdity of it.

Now, usually, we call it the 'group of death' because a top team is definitely going out of at the group stage.

Well, that isn't necessarily the case here.

Much like at Euro 2016, four of the six third-place teams will still qualify for the knockout round after their records are compared.

Phillip Lahm drew Portugal into the group.

That is, after all, how Portugal got out of their group last time and they went on to win the whole thing.

But that method of progression is a lot tougher when two champions are in your group with you.

Whoever that fourth team proves to be, they better be ready for games against some very motivated opposition.
