Croatia will find out their Euro 2020 qualification fate on Sunday.
The Euro 2020 qualification draw will be held in Dublin on Sunday, 2 December at 12 pm. Euro 2020 will be held in 12 cities across Europe – London, Munich, Rome, Baku, Saint Petersburg, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bilbao, Budapest, Glasgow and Copenhagen.
The tournament will open in Rome on 12 June 2020, with the final to be played on 12 July 2020 at Wembley Stadium in London.
The 55 teams in Europe will be drawn into 10 qualifying groups: five groups of five teams (Groups A to E) and five groups of six teams (Groups F to J). The top two teams in each group will qualify for Euro 2020.
Zlatko Dalić’s side collected enough points in the UEFA Nations League to be one of the 10 top-seeded teams meaning they will avoid Switzerland, Portugal, Holland, England, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy and Poland.
Most teams in Pot 1 will be hoping to avoid Germany who has found themselves in Pot 2 after a disastrous Nations League campaign.
