England's Euro 2024 fixtures, dates and potential route for tournament in Germany

Track England's Euro 2024 fixtures, as well as their potential route through the knockout stages of the tournament in Germany.

England will face Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia in their Euro 2024 group.

Their first game on Sunday June 16 sees them travel to Gelsenkirchen to take on Serbia, who finished second in qualifying Group G behind Hungary, and whom they have not faced since the country's split with Montenegro in 2006.

Gareth Southgate's side take on Denmark - whom they beat in the Euro 2020 semi-finals, before losing to Italy - four days later in Frankfurt.

They then round off their group on Tuesday June 25 in Cologne against Slovenia, whom they previously beat in a must-win final group game at World Cup 2010 to reach the knockout stages.

England might be favourites with Opta's 'supercomputer' but they will have to overcome several European heavyweights whichever way they qualify, if they are to go all the way.

Using the current FIFA world rankings to plot a possible route, England would have a seemingly easier route to the quarter-finals were they to win their group.

But Euro 2020 conquerors Italy could be a formidable last-eight hurdle, with France - who knocked them out of the last World Cup in Qatar - likely to stand in their way again in the semi-finals.

Should England finish second in their group, they could delay meeting Kylian Mbappe's World Cup finalists until the very last hurdle, but a sterner round-of-16 test would likely await in the shape of hosts Germany.
