FACTBOX: Euro 2020 lineup and allocation of teams
Published in Ahram Online on 20 - 11 - 2019

Factbox on how the Euro 2020 tournament is shaping up following completion of the main qualifying competition on Tuesday.
Twenty of the 24 places have been filled and the final four will be decided through playoffs in March.
The main draw for the finals will be in Bucharest on Nov 30.
HOST CITIES
For the first time, the European championship finals will be staged in 12 cities in 12 countries across Europe rather than the traditional system of one or two host nations.
UEFA have said this is a one-off arrangement to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the competition.
The host cities, chosen at a vote in September 2014, are: London, Glasgow, Dublin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Munich, Bilbao, Rome, Budapest, Bucharest, St Petersburg, Baku.
Brussels was also selected but pulled out due to delays over construction of a new stadium. All of its games were reallocated to London.
QUALIFIED TEAMS
The teams who have qualified so far are: Belgium, Italy, Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Spain, France, Turkey, England, Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Croatia, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, Denmark, Wales.
Finland are the only debutants so far.
The 16 teams in the playoffs are Iceland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Israel, Bosnia, Slovakia, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Georgia, Belarus.
The teams in the playoffs have been divided into four separate paths with one team qualifying from each path. In each path, there will be two semi-finals, played over one leg, and a one-leg final.
Path A: Iceland and three out of Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Israel.
Path B: Bosnia, Slovakia, Ireland, Northern Ireland.
Path C: Scotland, Norway, Serbia and one out of Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Israel.
Path D: Kosovo, North Macedonia, Georgia, Belarus.
The draw for the semi-final pairings in each path will be made on Nov. 22 at UEFA headquarters. The highest-ranked team will play the semi-final at home and a draw will determine the hosts for each final.
MAIN DRAW AND WHO PLAYS WHERE
The main draw will take place in Bucharest on Nov. 30.
Each group will be based in two host cities. Host teams who have qualified will play all their matches at home. If both hosts in a group qualify, a draw will determine who plays at home when they meet. However, if one of those host teams has qualified directly and the other via a playoff, the team which qualified directly will play at home.
So far, the following places have been allocated.
Group A: (Rome and Baku) Italy.
Group B: (Copenhagen and St Petersburg) Denmark and Russia.
Group C: (Amsterdam and Bucharest) Netherlands, plus Romania if they qualify.
Group D: (London and Glasgow) England, plus Scotland if they qualify.
Group E: (Bilbao and Dublin) Spain, plus Ireland if they qualify.
Group F: (Munich and Budapest) Germany, plus Hungary if they qualify.
Under UEFA rules, the following pairs of teams cannot be drawn in the same group for security reasons: Russia and Ukraine, Bosnia and Kosovo, Serbia and Kosovo.
