Thursday marks the beginning of the qualification process to UEFA Euro 2020, a celebration of 60 years of the second best international tournament in the world. The final, set to be held July 12, 2020 at Wembley Stadium, will pit the two teams that successfully navigate the tricky waters of qualification, the group stages, and then through the knockout rounds.

There will be 24 teams that qualify from 10 groups (winner and runner-up), plus four more teams that get into the draw though the playoffs.

All the teams are chasing Portugal, the defending 2016 European champion and 2019 Nations League winner, as well as France, the 2016 runner-up and 2018 World champion.

Thursday, it is all about teams playing the minnows of Europe. Take the goals on offer, and hope the teams want to keep racking up goals, since goal difference could prove pivotal at the end of the process.
