It's been three years since the last international tournament (if you don't count the Nations League shenanigans). As if we've not seen enough football this season, here's a new, bloated tournament (24 teams instead of 16) to catch your eye or bore you to tears. We kick off Friday 11 June.

Be prepared for endless talk of Gazza's goal in the lead up to England vs Scotland.

Group A: Turkey, Italy, Wales, Switzerland (games held in Rome/Baku)
Group B: Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia (Copenhagen/St Petersburg)
Group C: Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia (Amsterdam/Bucharest)
Group D: England, Croatia, Scotland, Czech Republic (London/Glasgow)
Group E: Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia (Seville/St Petersburg)
Group F: Hungary, Portugal, France, Germany (Munich/Budapest)

Games to be played all over Europe. Each group's games will be played in two cities.

My mates are Croatian, so I will get grief when they play England.

I just hope there are surprises and the big teams go out. Need a Wales or Finland to go far to make it remotely interesting.

Ta for that thorough fixture list!

I just corrected all the fixture times - I had copied and pasted from the UEFA website, so I was an hour out, oops!

Striker Karim Benzema has been picked for France's Euro 2020 squad despite his alleged involvement in an attempted blackmail case linked to a sex tape featuring a former France team-mate. He will soon stand trial in France.

If that had happened in England the press would be demanding Southgate's resignation.

Right, okay, this is the right thread, not the wrong one. When did Scotland become a country? Did Nicholas Tree-Surgeon manage to float away from the English on a big raft, en route to Greenland, after all?

More to the point, if England, Scotland, and those other bits of the UK (eg, Ireland) can play as part of Europe, why can't Brazil? I think the Brexiteers demand an explanation.

It was when the Picts finally accepted Roman rule - you can now get olive oil above the Antonine Wall (in selected stores).

I think England will get loads of nil pwah and finish bottom.
Some lame duck song from Albania or Azerbaijan will win.
The voting is so political and tactical.
It's on for over 4 HOURS too!!!!

Finishing last, twice in a row, and with nul points this time... oh well. Hopefully we won't come last this summer.

Yeah, never seen the Italians play so retro. They won and they were still crap.

Is this the future?
The Italian team had girls AND boys playing on the same team (I think her name was Suzi Quatro).
And England only had one up front. No goalie, defence or midfield.
I'd blame Brexit, but it happened last year too.
Everybody hates us. It's all Mel Gibson's fault. He started this hatred.
What's that Millwall song?

People aren't fond of us!
We are indifferent to their attitude!

I’m sorry - but completely nuts or not - I will not see Mel Gibson’s name impugned like that.

Why is it his fault? What have I missed?

I would have thought it was more those moneysuckers who are no longer relevant that you house. No, I’m not talking about English cricket team.

"Why is it his fault?"
----------------
Well, he went to Scotland and hated us.
Then he went to America and got all patriotic and hated us some more.
Then he went to olde times South America and hated us again (probably).
Then he went back to biblical times and carried on the hatred of us (probably).
I need to check if Gallipoli was our fault too?
Then he had a break down and blamed it on the Sugar Tits.

Sergio Ramos has been left out of Spain's European Championship 2020 squad by coach Luis Enrique.

The 35-year-old is his country's most-capped player, with 180 appearances for Spain since making his debut in March 2005.

Luis Enrique confirmed on Monday that defenders Pau Torres, Aymeric Laporte, Eric Garcia, Diego Llorente and Cesar Azpilicueta had been chosen instead.
